A fantastic holiday experience. The guide, Matteo, was really good and helped make the experience all the better. It was a bit of a nervy start for us, paranoid about falling in, but Matteo helped get us out on the water. The confidence grew from there and standing, or kneeling when the water got a bit choppy, became an ever easier transition. The canals we toured were really quiet but, in the late spring afternoon sunshine, pretty much perfect. I'd definitely recommend the experience, or the kayaking option, for anyone who wants to do a bit more than just the standard tourist stuff.
