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!

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!

Very nice journey on the lagoon with Alessandro, who provides great commentaries and good mood. We had a wonderful weather, and really enjoyed the beauty of the city from another angle.

The ride through the lagoon was super nice. Alessandro showed everything and explained it very well. He was super nice, very accommodating. It can only be recommended

Great time. We were only 4 on the boat. Discovery of non-touristy places with our very friendly guide.
