Loved our boat tour! Informative and fun to see all the canals we wouldn't otherwise have seen. Also, our guide was from Venice (his family has lived there for 700 years); that added a fantastic layer of insight to the place and culture.

Both our driver and tour guide were excellent. We had a perfect day out with an amazing slice of Venice viewed from the water. Highly recommend if you have limited time in Venice.
