Amazing experience, would definitely do again

This was a great way to see Venice and was also a thrill. You do need to have basic kayaking experience, but I didn't have much and was still fine. It is a workout! The tour guide... read more

My husband and I were looking for something different in Venice and thought kayaking among the canals would get us right in the middle of the action. Unfortunately due to my mis-understanding of tour names I booked a lagoon tour instead of the city tour. As we were unable to change groups we continued, hoping that nature would prove to... More

My wife and I Kayak regularly, we were very satisfied with this kayak tour. The professional approach to the tour by our guide Celina was outstanding. We loved kayaking through the narrow canals of Venice, it really was a unique experience. Highly recommend this tour, some kayaking experience is definitely an advantage though.

A perfect way to discover the areas not frequented by tourists. Guide was fun, informative and attentive to our safety. Give a gondola ride the flick, do this instead!

We did a 1/2 day paddle around Venice - great way to get a different perspective on Venice! We paddled across the lagoon / Grand Canal & spent a lot of time in the "back" canals of Castello.

Our guides Giovanni and Serena did a great job of making us feel safe crossing busy water ways and exploring the canals. They shared Venice history while we navigated through the the canals and (an extra bonus) took numerous pictures of everyone. We received a link that very afternoon to all the photos and are able to download for our... More

This was the highlight of our ten day cycling and sight-seeing trip to Italy. It was brilliant! It's amazing to kayak along the narrow canals with washing hanging above us! It's bizarre to kayak under the bridge of sighs! It's a bit weird having gondalas pass right by you. It's exciting kayaking across the vaporeti routes! We took the vaporetti... More

Selina and Michela guided us through the lagoon with great patience (we were mostly beginners) as well as taught us a lot about Venice and its ecosystem. The kayaking was extremely well organized, and thanks to Rene and Lucia, I received plenty of helpful information before our arrival. Once in Venice, the directions they gave us as well as the...

Venice Kayak organizes half and while day kayak tours. We did an afternoon tour and we liked it a lot. In our group of nine people were experienced kayakers but also people with less experience. The tour leaders were very keen that everyone got along fine, and gave plenty of information about Venice. We crossed big water ways as well... More

Inexperienced family of 4, we were allowed to practice in the harbour. We explored the calmer areas which nicely complemented a walking tour we had the previous day for the touristy places. Great fun!
