First pick for a great way to explore Venice Canals!
Aug 2021
Great time! Def recommend if you want a way to learn about history, tradition and try your hand at paddling like a gondola master ;) We would chose this route any day. The guide was knowledgeable, patient and fun. Thanks for a great way to see the canals of Venice!

Best way to explore Venice
Sep 2020 • Friends
We had an absolutely wonderful morning exploring the canals of Venice and attempting to row. The team are incredibly passionate about Venetian rowing and sailing and it’s really interesting to hear about their broader mission to continue the tradition. The session started with a brief look around their workshop and explanation of some of the history. Then it was time to hit the water and (very patiently) be taught how to row. The session is structured perfectly for any skill level to ensure you get to see more of Venice, relax in the sun, and even get a bit of a workout in. Our instructor/guide was particularly fantastic - he was a great teacher and made sure we felt relaxed and confident, and above all had fun!
