In contrast to the other reviewers' great experiences, mine has been quite the opposite. I booked the Grand Canal tour 2+ months in advance. 10 days before the tour, I was browsing the website and saw that the Grand Canal tour was listed as "Suspended"...More

Amazing experience kayaking through the canals of Venice! Edward and Tom were super helpful and friendly. Loved it and would highly recommend! We chose this over doing the gondola rides and definitely no regrets!

The highlight of our trip for me is definitely kayaking. We went for 5pm and kayaked for 1 and a half hours around the canals. Myself and boyfriend had beginners/minimal experience so we shared a kayak with two seats which helped massively. The two boys...More

My girlfriend and I did a one-hour tour in Cannaregio and we loved it. I'm a Venetian myself, but I still found it incredible to see Venice from this perspective. The guide was very kind and provided us with all the necessary equipment (spare clothes...More

I knew my 17 year old son would be tired of museums by our last stop in Venice so I looked for something off the beaten path. We selected the kayak tour with Venice by Water to do something different. The two of us went...More

We spent almost an hour on the canals but did not learn any new information about the city. The canals are quite busy, so it required kayaking skills that beginners don't have. That made it not very relaxing. It is a beautiful city, and we...More

We were 6 adults (parents with adult children and spouses in 3 two-man kayaks) doing a 90 minute trip to the Arsenal and through some channels. This was great. The guides were super friendly, careful and competent. An awesome way to tour Venice.

Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district)
with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many
transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying
areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand
for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal
bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution,
2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli
Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby

You have to kayak across the Chanel very quickly between fast moving boats. So you need to have capacity as a rower to steer and paddle well. The waterways between the buildings are also narrow and have parked boats that... More
