This was a fantastic way to see Venice. Think we went into every canal, large and small. Our guide, Julianna not sure name was so knowledgeable and we enjoyed every minute of the tour. The lights came on after dusk, and it was like a fairy tale. Would recommend this tour for everyone. Thanks so much for an experience we will always remember.
We enjoyed this very much and Barbara very very knowledgeable and friendly. However, they ended the tour 20 minutes early. I was going to complain (should not have to) but the others in my party asked me not to because they didn't want to spoil what was otherwise an amazing time. Not worth the money
The Private Grand Canal Boat Tour was certainly not Grand as the the tour was entitled. The actual boat provided was a narrow covered boat with a small open seating area the rear, which was a tight fit for just four of us all small/medium framed and therefore, it not allow any room to take any meaningful photographs as there is no room to manoeuvre. In fact, the actual boat is a complete misrepresentation by the Tour writeup and its accompanying photograph. If the tour writeup was accompanied by the photograph of the actual type of boat, I would not have bought the tour for myself and family. Hence, it is not surprising that there is certainly the strong sour taste of being misled. Furthermore, an hour prior to the tour, I had called the given telephone number to check on the specific location of the meeting place for the tour but I was given incorrect information to wait at the esplanade where there is a wooden booth in front of a flower garden to turn right of St Mark's Square, along the walkway by the waters. We had almost missed the tour completely as we had to rushed frantically to find the right meeting place after being advised by some people at the wooden booth. However, the guide was knowledgeable and provided adequate commentary on the tour. Our rating would be a one-star rating and this is just for the guide of the tour only, and, for the Tour Company, its administration and logistics of the tour, our rating is a zero-rating.
Great way to see Venice and learn a lot more than with a group.
Thinking it was just a water tour was a little dissapointing since we had already booked a walking tour. You should make it clear that it consist of a half water tour and half walking tour.
