    Our guide Alessandro was extremely personable and spoke very good English. The boat is not very luxurious, but after the first sip of prosecco, the beautiful view and the exciting information, that didn't matter anymore. We just got into conversation with the other passengers and the journey was therefore enjoyable and entertaining. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.

    Prosecco, snacks and a boat trip at sunset, if you don't think that's nice, it's your own fault. However, we would have liked more travel through the canals. Most of the time we unfortunately moved in the open lagoon, where there was certainly a lot to see, but not like in Venice directly. Therefore, the last part of the boat trip, including passing St. Mark's Square, was definitely the nicer part. Our guide was very nice and explained everything to us in abundance. Price / performance ratio was okay.

    In short: it was amazing! We did not really know what to expect but this is such a lovely tour and me and my girlfriend are glad we did this instead of a touristy gondola tour. The boat was comfortable, the prosecco and snacks very tasty and the tour/sights itself was really beautiful! All of that and the tour guide (fluent english) who just knew so much about Venice and all its surrounding islands made the trip an absolute recommend!
