Check out these two reviews we selected from Tripadvisor to give you an idea of what to expect during this activity.

Venice in a whole new way

A very different way to see Venice and a very different way to kayak! The tour takes you to places tourists don’t see in terrific kayaks that will please beginners and more experienced paddlers. (They are very comfortable, stable, and agile sit-in boats). It’s urban kayaking at its best. Our guide, Alberto, was terrific too.

Must do while in Venice!

We loved this experience! It was so much fun, and we had a great guide! We decided to do this tour on a whim, and I am so glad we did. They provided everything we needed (we were not necessarily prepared), and it was awesome!
