    We had a great time enjoying an Aperitivo while listing to all the informative stories about the city and watching the sun set. We definitely will come back and recommend Alessandro to all our friends visiting Venice.

    Ottima esperienza, bellissima gita in barca per gli angoli più nascosti della laguna con spiegazione dal barcaiolo Alessandro super simpatico e gentilissimo. Ottima soluzione per vedere posti che non si farebbe mai in tempo e con una bellissima atmosfera. Consigliatissimo

    Alessandro est adorable, par contre.... contrairement à l’annonce ce n’est pas une gondole qui vous attend mais un bateau motorisé. La gentillesse d’alessandro vous fait vite oublier ce détail, il est très gentil, à l’écoute.
