We booked the voga lesson for our 2 teenage boys during our trip to Europe. This was definitely the highlight for them. They were hesitant at first but Jane was super nice and patient and they had so much fun learning to row. Even after being back for a month they still tell me that was their best memory from... More

We were so glad that we took our family's advice and tracked these girls down - we had a lovely day and really felt that we experienced the Venetian canals in a real way!! Having seen so many self-conscious looking couples wandering around the central areas in the "mainstream" gondolas we knew we wanted something else!!! Our instructor was very... More

Booked this for my husband, his first time in Venice. Felix the instructor was absolutely fantastic. Such a completely different way to experience Venice and the canals you have to give this a go.

Fabulous experience - I booked a lesson for my partner who was then meant to row me around on my birthday and this worked pretty well after we stopped going round in circles! A lovely way to experience Venice, friendly and patient staff, and the pit stops for wine & delicious nibbles at local bars were an added bonus. Highly... More

This was an incredible experience -many thanks to the previous reviewers who suggested this activity when in Venice. We arrived on a Friday afternoon and the streets were swarming with tourists - it was overwhelming, even for a New Yorker. We ventured out of the tourist areas and up to Cannaregio, which was a beautifully authentic local neighborhood. We met... More

I learned about Row Venice (and about Viva Voga Veneta) on my trip to Venice last year, but didn't have time to try it out. This year I did have time, and it was a blast! I rowed crew in college, and I have a kayak that I row now, but this was an entirely new experience. I have a... More

This was a fantastic experience - my daughter and I enjoyed learning to row Venetian style whilst on a short trip to Venice . It was great fun and a wonderful way to see parts of Venice you might not normally see. Our instructor Felix was very patient and very knowledgeable about Venice. Would definitely recommend it.

We last minute booked this trip en route from Florence. I must say one of our best experiences in Italy! Well worth the price, and the experience and feeling of old venice was excellent. Our guide was outstanding and offered a great amount of information! Would highly recommend!

My boyfriend and I (from Scotland) visited Venice with my cousin and her boyfriend (from Canada) and booked this in advance after seeing the great reviews on TripAdvisor. We had a fantastic time! SO much better value than a gondola ride - standard gondola ride is €80 for 30 minutes and this was €40 each for 90 minutes. Such a... More
