Travelling with one of our expert local guides you'll enjoy an informative and entertaining tour of Grand Canal, the main street of Venice, and some of the minor canals of Venice where you'll explore the most authentic and secret Venice, far from the crowds of St. Marks square.

On these 2-hour Private Venice Boat tours you'll have an intimate and unique experience of the world's most beautiful city. As you cruise down the Grand canal, you'll be introduced to the splendid palaces, churches, gardens, bridges and warehouses that line Venice's main street.

After the boat tour of the Grand Canal explore some of the lesser known parts of the city on our Private Venice Boat tours as you take a meandering route through the smaller canals that traverse the city. Visit the Jewish Ghetto in the Cannaregio district of Venice, travel through the San Polo district of Venice where you can see some of the oldest buildings in Venice. Ply the waters of the Giudecca canal to admire the play of light on Palladio's Redentore and San Giorgio churches.

These two-hour private Venice boat tours of the city can finish at your centrally located hotel or in the centre of Venice if you wish to further explore the city on foot.

What a fabulous way to see Venice!! Our guide, Christina was so friendly and knowledgeable. Seeing Venice by boat on a number of different canals while hearing so many stories about the history and current life was the best way to start our visit in town. Highly recommend this tour and our guide!
