Excellent

As well as being very experienced with kayaking, our guide was very knowledgeable about Venice and was incredibly attentive regarding answering questions, asking what we’d like to know about this beautiful city (and even recommending restaurants). The trip itself was relaxing and tranquil an opportunity to see the real Venice via its beautiful, quiet, smaller canals. Our guide made sure we felt safe and the pace was perfect. A brilliant trip.

Anna was such a kind and friendly host, really good fun, and so worth seeing Venice the way it’s meant to be seen, from the water! 100% recommend doing this, not hard going, loo and lockers at the beginning.

Magical! Gondolas…Pah!

William is not only an English Italian historian, but also a kayaker AND a great tour guide who made us feel safe and finished our holiday off perfectly/ how lucky are Real Venetian Kayak’s to have him. Plus a night kayak is just magical and so much more special than a gondola! Thanks William (and Sherri and John for being great fellow kayakers too)!

Pickup location well tucked away but Google maps got us there. We had a great afternoon gently paddling around the canals, we had very little kayak experience but found it very easy, great guide pointed out all points of interest. Definitely recommend

Kayaking experience in Venice
Kathryn_P
, Apr 2022
Nice and relaxed My first slight concern was the map does not pick up the location very well as it is down an unmarked dead end side street. Would be better if there was a sign above alley way. Also there is quiet a drop down into the kayaks and bit tricky getting back up out again. I’m 54 and pretty fit and I struggled a fair bit. Also could’ve done with a good 5 minute instructions so everyone was clear how to kayak.

First of all our guide was excellent! Giorgio was waiting for us when we arrived and the starting location was easy to find. He gave us a quick introduction and asked a little about us before starting. He asked each of us on our past experience with kayaking and was really helpful. We had a private group of 5 and felt he managed to connect with each of us during the tour. This is a unique and interesting way to see Venice. I would definitely recommend to family and friends. Great value for money and the 2 hours fly in. As you're traveling along the guide will tell you some history and interesting facts about Venice. If you're looking for something different while in Venice this tour is a must. This tour is great for all capabilities, I'm a beginner and felt like I'd been doing it for years!

Venice is magnificent but kayaking with our experienced guide was magical. Getting away from the crowds and having our guide show us the history and calm side of the Venetian lifestyle. It was the highlight of our trip. We will definitely do it again. Thank you
