I had the pleasure to explore Venice from a kayak using Venice Kayak company. With a guide, I explored Venice from different views than normal tourists. I never believed this would be this beautiful. Thus it is allowed to explore Venice using own kayak, I will recommend to use Venice Kayak company, and their experienced guides, as the rules of... More

What a fantastic way to spend a Sunday morning in Venice! A welcome break from crowds in August. We caught a morning ferry to Certosa, where we awaited our guide at a nice cafe. Only 3 in our group, the guide had us outfitted and on the water quickly. From there it was a childhood dream come true to be... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our morning tour with Venice Kayak, including the adventure of making our way to Certosa Island. We had walked through the Castello neighborhood the day before, and it was so fun to see the same area from the water. Our guide was friendly and accommodating, and took fantastic pictures for us. My only small complaint was that... More

Dear visitor, thank you for sharing your experience with Venice Kayak and thank you for your kind review. Being in the middle of a canal or of the lagoon sometimes is not the best situation to give explanations or commentary and our guides always try to do their best in these cases. We hope to see you again! More

Your gear is in good order and a special thank you to Marco for taking very good care of us, helping us into and out of our double kayak - couldn't have done it without you👍👍.

Our trip with Venice Kayak was nothing short of amazing! The guides were like mother ducklings guiding us through the world of Venice Canals and the great sea! The gear was nothing short of fantastic. Everybody was comfortable, and our belongings were safe and dry! We felt like the value was a steal considering the adventure and beauty we had... More

What a fantastic day! We can't thank Loretta enough for making our stay in Venice so enjoyable and memorable. As parents of a very keen Kayaking 15yr old we were slightly apprehensive about our dubious and long forgotten kayaking skills, in signing up for a full day tour - we had nothing to worry about - the pace was perfectly...

This was a well organised and very enjoyable trip round the canals of Venice. We spent times in the tiny backstreets as well as along the Grand Canal - it offered the opportunity to see Venice from a different angle, up close!

We had a wonderful trip in a group of 6 plus Selina our guide. It started well with my eldest falling in the water when getting in :-). The crossing from the island to Venice was quite rough but manageable by anyone that has some experience. Going through Venice was amazing. We went on a Sunday afternoon trip and the... More

Dear Pieter, thank you for your kind review. You are right: the week end and the afternoon are the best for a tour in kayak. We are not tourist guides and we don't do walking tours, but tours in kayak: being in the middle of a canal or of the lagoon sometimes is not the best situation to give explanations... More

No question about it. In my opinion, anyone who is physically capable should plan to take this tour. Two of us booked the long tour, got a lot of exercise, and saw Venice like only locals do thanks to our very personable resident guide Loretta. She even took all the pictures since she knew the sites, angles, and time of... More

We did this trip with our 8 year old son, who found it so peaceful that he fell asleep!! We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and the guides. We learned about Venice, felt a part of the city by being in the canals, got some exercise, and overall had a unique experience that we will not forget. We definitely recommend this... More
