Choose from one of 4 departure times when you book.

Good quick tour
Oct 2018 • Couples
This was a good quick tour of the Grand Canal. Group included spanish and english tourist so the guide spoke in both languages very quickly. Just the palazzo names and not much more.

Disappointed
May 2018 • Couples
Yes, it was a small group, because it was a small boat, actually a water taxi with only a few outdoor seats. Indoors, the roof was too low for a 6 footer and had limited views out the windows The advertised one hour tour was only 45 minutes long. Guide Laura's English was only 80% understandable.Paid 30 Euro each for two and we felt it was a poor value.
