Highlight of our stay

Dimitri’s kayak tour of Venice’s canals and the lagoon was absolutely amazing - it was the highlight of our time in Venice. You MUST take this tour whilst in Venice as it’s by far the best way to see the city - far more interesting and much better value for money than the gondolas. Dimitri is knowledgable, passionate and professional and made the tour an absolute joy - thank you so much Dimitri!

Dimitri was a great guide, he knew plenty of history surrounding the island. We would give it the full 5* if only the tour was a little longer! Great experience, wouldn’t want to share a kayak considering the price you pay per person.

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.
