Seeing the canals from a unique perspective

This tour was really excellent. Our guide Giovanni, who spoke very good English, made me, my spouse and children feel extremely safe while taking us for a fascinating ride through the canals of Venice's Cannaregio neighborhood. He shared local history while guiding us around in modern, comfortable equipment. Overall, a fantastic experience!

Unable to go kayaking due to fog. Unfortunately, they did not notify us. So, we walked all the way there before finding out. It would have been nice if they had texted us.

I loved this tour after it was over. LOL! I would recommend having experience before you do this. It is not for the faint of heart. You literally kayak across the Grand canal with all the vapportos and motorboats. You feel very small in your kayak. You will also feel this the next day. I will say it was beautiful and a great experience. You get to ride down the smaller canals as well and see beautiful bridges and house. You also stop along the way for some history from your guide.

It was a great tour. They started early and I did not read the email saying that. They accommodated us by doing the tour later. It is a little hard to find the place. Google Maps had trouble and you need to be able to read a street map to get there. Once there you need to search little. They should probably send you a little more information about how to get there and some pictures of the from and how to go in and look for the street number. The tour it self was fabulous. Guide was fun and knowledgable. It was a great way to see what you can't from the streets.

This was an awesome experience to share with my loved ones. Venice's canals are saturated with gondolas which is still very beautiful and it was so lovely to venture away from the gondola/boat crowds and see different parts of Venice from a kayak. There's nothing like rowing through the Venetian neighbourhood at your own pace. Our tour guide and I feel awful as I cannot remember his name but he wore a green t-shirt and supported Juve! was extremely knowledgeable about the area, funny, and extremely patient with some of the slower ones. This is something I would highly recommend you do during your Venetian visit. It's one of those 'once in a lifetime' experiences that you should not pass.

This was a very unique way to learn about Venice...and when it is very warm the only way to go! We booked on a small group tour but only had the 2 of us arrive - it is very hard to find the meeting place so either find it earlier in the day or call them and ask them to find you...you do not want to miss out on this tranquil and sometimes thrill-seeking tour. We felt safe all the time, but crossing the Grand Canal the first time is a bit like learning to drive a car. Francesco was our guide and had a great way of getting the history of Venice to us without it being a boring lesson :

We cannot say enough how much we enjoyed Giovanni's kayak adventure of the Venice canals. He made sure we were comfortable in our kayaks. He gave us an architectural tour along the way, brought us to the Grand Canal for a small time and helped us have a great time. Great way to experience residential Venice for a couple of hours. Thank you Gio!!

Great tour guide and really fun unique way to traverse through tight canals and the great canal in Venice. Gives the otherwise eventless town other than the busy part of town in San Marco square a little fun twist. Only real difficult part was finding the start point. The tiny corridors in venice called streets are like a maze and very difficult to get google maps to know where you're going so if you can get someone to take you to the start point, I recommend it....especially in the daunting heat of summer.
