What people are saying about Veneto

Wonderful excursion to discover a unique territory. We reached small coves and caves with crystal clear water waiting for the sunset and enjoyed a snack in excellent company. Thanks and a special mention to the sympathy of Davide, Luca and Michele who made the excursion very pleasant and fun. I highly recommend to everyone, not only to tourists but to those who want to live a special experience and keep beautiful memories.

Our guide was very considerate and looked after us well. We saw a good part of canals, some quiet, some busier and even were out in the open water of the lagoon a short while. Also we were told a lot of Information about history and architecture while going through the canals. We enjoyed it a lot.

Great way to actively explore the canals. Tour guides are super nice, have lots of interesting information and are well organized. We felt safe at all times because the guide takes good care of you and adjusts the pace individually. An absolute must for me!

Very nice tour with stops in several caves and a break at a beautiful beach. The weather on the originally booked date was not good, we were able to postpone the tour without any problems. Great experience.

Really good experience. The leader was very patient and really friendly.
