A very well-planned and organized cruise, pleasant and relaxing.

We wanted a cruise or tour of some kind to introduce us to this area of Italy. Neither of us like big crowds so this seemed perfect, small, intimate, low-pressure and low stress. We both were very sick the day before our original booking, I emailed and the company switched us immediately to another date, no problems and no fuss. The tour guide herself was thoroughly delightful and even asked how we were feeling, she knew. She just oozed information and stories. The pace was perfect along the canal. The visits to the palazzas was great fun and enlightening, a look into a very different time and life-style. Once we got to Venice, we were not abandoned, the guide (Francesca? I'm sorry I didn't write her name down but so very sweet and informative) made sure we all knew where to go next and how to get there. Also, a very good value for the cost.

This tour was awesome! The meeting point is easy to find, the guide was punctual and very informative. (Can't remember her name, she was the lady that speaks 4 languages including Italian, French, and English.) I don't normally like guided tours, I prefer doing my own thing, but I wanted to do this, to have a basic understanding on Venice itself as well as on the Venetian culture. This was the perfect experience for me, especially since our group was very small (7 of us all together). You have the option NOT TO take the boat ride back as well - which exactly what my choice was, since my hotel was right by St. Mark's.

Lovely peaceful day drifting gently down the river to Venice.

The guide was lovely and delivered a lot of very interesting information throughout the trip in several languages. The three villa’s we visited were all worth seeing and with something unique to each so they were not all the same. There are some scarily low bridges on the river that meant it was not safe the be on the upper deck for some parts of the trip but there were no bridges on the last stretch so we sat on the upper deck then and it was a really lovely way to arrive in Venice.

Peaceful excursion, highly recommendable

Excellent comments during the whole day-trip by the guides, visit in small (splitted) groups of 3 beautiful Villas Kind an knowledgeable Information on Venice transports including very helpful ticket sale

Was wonderful seeing the city through a local's perspective. Great seeing the city by the not so crowded streets. Will highly recommend
