See the Grand Canal!

Private tour along Grand canal with tour guide was a lovely ride with lots of history about Venice. Small group glass blowing demonstration was very nice and its a family business!

Wonderful way to get out of the crowds!

This 3 hour boat tour was a great way to get away from the crowds for a few hours and get out in the open water. The trip to the Murano glass workshop was a fun destination! Gianluca was a wonderful guide! He picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel by private water taxi and the tour was at our pace.

Would pass on this.

The Grand Canal tour was good, but the rest was just so-so. The glass making demonstration lasted only about 10 minutes. The rest was browsing in their showroom. Unless you are interested in buying glass, I would skip. The boat ride back on the public boat bus lasted longer than the tour.

Our tour guide Elisa was excellent very knowledgeable and gracious. The boat that was used was very good the old wooden boat with the shellac finish! The areas we visited were excellent. We were fortunate to have the boat to ourselves..would recommend to anyone

Best Venice Experience

Tour guide Francesca was excellent. Very knowledgeable and helpful. With me being older and having several back surgeries she was very aware to find the best way for me to get on and off the water taxi. Loved the Grand Canal tour and the information she provided as well as that for Murano.

A bit disappointing
Kevin_T

Loved the canal tour, but disappointed the private boat abandoned us at Murano Island. We had to take very crowded public transportation back to Venice proper. That's not what we paid for. We loved the glass factory and made a significant purchase there, but we're disappointed with the return trip, even though our wonderful guide helped us to navigate the public transportation.

Tour guide Nora picked us up personally and the water taxi was very quick and easy. We got a great tour of the grand canal buildings and Murano. I very much recommend it. It was quick enough for kids to not get stir crazy.

Good tour overall Guide gave some history but also knew when to let us enjoy the view. She answered some questions, shared some history. The hotel pickup was prompt and drop off was back at the hotel dock. Great for people who don’t want to be herded along like cattle in a huge group.

This was a great trip. The Staff were most helpful getting us on and off the boat, as we are older, and certainly needed the assistance. We both love to watch glass being created, and the people at the glass factory were most helpful and considerate.

Valued beautiful tour we will never forget

Fantastic and knowledgable guide and driver took us on a well versed tour of the Grande Canal. He dropped us of at a beautiful factory in Murano, where we got a personal guide, denonstration and met the owner of the Factory. My teenaged daughters and I enjoyed an experience of a lifetime. We were also taken on a tour of the smaller, beautiful neighborhoods on our way back to hotel with tips on the best places to eat. Highly reconmend.

Much better than expected. We were picked up and dropped off as expected and were shown some little glimpses of the real Venice in the back canals, as well as all the major attractions on the Grand Canal.The guide, Katty, was very knowledgeable both about the history of Venice and the current economic challenges. The glass blowing demonstration was long enough to be interesting to all and short enough not too bored teenagers, even though it went wrong, Our host was fluent in English, informative and there was no pressure sales in the gift shop. Prices in there ranged from €3 to €10k+ for real pieces of art. Katty was happy to recommend a restaurant at the end of our trip and driver Enrique happy to drop us at alternative to pick up point - neither of which we needed but nice to know available. Exceeded expectations and thoroughly recommend

Ça vaut vraiment le coup ! Nous venions d’arriver. Du coup traverser le grand canal dans un beau bateau avec les explications d’un guide nous a projeté dans Venise ! L’atelier à Murano était très intéressant. De vrais artistes à portée de mains liste pour nous !
