    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.

    The boat trip is highly recommended! Is was an amazing experience and we could not have had a better guide to show us the laguna and some more remote places of Venice. It was fun and also very interesting to listen to the information and stories during the picturesque ride in the sunset on the boat. Thank you!

    Excellent time in Venice! We had to postpone a day because of the rain, Alex contacted us by WhatsApp and we made a new appointment. In a motor boat, we were able to tour the city and see more distant neighborhoods. Alex is from the region, he knows the lagoon well. Great experience, I highly recommend!
