We only had 1 full day in Venice and were contacted late the day before to say they thought the weather would be too cold, windy, and rainy and that they would like to reschedule. I advised it was our only day in Venice and they decided that a decision would be made at 11am the

Response from IL-Bragozzo, Proprietario at Venice Sunset Cruise by Typical Venetian Boat
Responded Nov 8, 2019
At first let me tell that I am happy that the only negative review that we received in 8 year that we are subscribed on TripAdvisor was made by someone that did not made a tour with us. We try to keep the quality of our service very high, that is the reason why we canceled the tour that day. The clients made the reservation through Viator and paid 158 euros for the trip, I think that for that sum of money they have the right to spend a relaxing and nice time on our boats. I can guarantee as a native Venetian with tens of years of experience on boat trips that the day when the clients made the reservation for the tour (the 30th of October) the weather conditions won't let them enjoy a nice and relaxing trip. The wind in the lagoon (most of the route is in the open water not in the small canals inside Venice) was 20-25 knots from North, it means cold wind and with 20-25 knots it means continous water spray and the clients would end up the trip soak of salty sea water and freezing cold. The temperature that afternoon was 10° C with a real feel on the boat (open boat in the open lagoon) of 3° C. The weather in the open water is much different than in the city, in the city you don't realize how much windy and cold can be in the open lagoon, most of all in a cold day at the end of October. You can wear warm jackets but for that situation you need professional garment. With 25 knots of winf and 1,5 meters high waves boat would roll and pitch all the time and probably they would have sea sick. It is true that it didn't rain in the afternoon but it rain in the morning and the weather bulletin gave a 60% of possibility of rain in the afternoon. The sky, of course was very cloudy. On the 30th in the morning I was out in the boat to see if it was possible to make the trip and finally I took the responsibility to decide not to make it, We are a commercial company, we provide tours and we make money with that so it is our interest to make the trip, we're not happy to cancel a tour (we loose money) but we prefer to loose money rather than to put our clients into an unplesant adventure. Regarding the refund, we did our best, we sent the refund request immediately after the cancellation, then the banks and the credit card companies have their time and there's nothing we can do about that. The client said that we should propose in alternative a walking tour but that is not possible at first because we do not have the license for that and second because we do not propose them, we are experts of boat tours, if we propose in alternative a walking tour the service would be amateurish. To advise the client about the bad weather we sent them a message 15 minutes after noon the day before the trip (short after the weather bullettin that comes out at noon) and anyway more than 24 hours before the trip saying to the clients that it was likely that the tour would be canceled and we would inform them if the tour would be canceled the day of the trip before noon (we try to see if it is possible to make the trip till the last bullietin). They had all the time to book something differend and the possibility to cancel the trip for free . The client says we should give reccomendations to our clients if the tour is canceled. We do not make it for a simple reason: we can't make it by our initiative as we are not a travel agency but if they would request any tip or alternatives, we would give them , it is not a problem at all (as you can read in many of the reviews, Venice offers a lot of different attraction) . We did not know their plans and preferences The only plan B we can have in this case is to try to reschedule the tour another day (something that was not possible as the client was in Venice for jut one day) or to refund the customer. We acted responsibly and following the interests of the client (that is to spend money to experience something nice). Tommaso Serantoni Owner
