Full description
The charm of Venice has always attracted people from around the world. In addition, its unique network of canals represents an important aspect of heritage for all of humanity. Enjoy a 2-hour guided kayaking tour to appreciate the historical riches and cultural attractions that make Venice one of the world’s great treasures. What particularly strikes many visitors is the close relationship between the earth and the water, a perfect symbiosis that often leads to Venice being identified with its lagoon. Within the city, the many canals and rii (smaller canals) are the vital links that carry Venetians and visitors to their destinations. They are at the heart of authentic Venice. This tour provides the opportunity to explore the city from a special perspective, in a way that promotes sustainable tourism.

Really funny, the instructor was very patient given our first experience and was very helpful in explaining and encouraging us. We used a kayak for two, it was difficult right away, but then we started to understand the movements and we really enjoyed it! The route was between the canals, fortunately not in the grand canal, and in any case vaporettos and various boats passed by, but we had a lot of fun! Jacket provided by the instructor, possibility to leave the bags in the drawers with the keys. Excellent experience, obviously sustainable, original and that will bind you even more if you use a double kayak because you will have to coordinate and help each other in the movements, you will work as a team and the next day you will feel like you have worked out !!! Good fun!!!

We were a little unsure when we actually found the office for the experience- ( you will need your map to find it as it’s down a narrow side street very much off the main streets ) we were also not sure we would enjoy the experience as it was raining ! . However , from the moment we knocked on the door and were greeted by our brilliant and English speaking guide , we felt very safe and looked after - he even lent us waterproof trousers and jackets ! Very handy thanks *it’s a good idea to take extra clothes just incase you end up being splashed when in the kayak * I am not at all sporty and was very nervous in a kayak on my own but the guide was amazing and put me at my ease - within 10 minutes , with his instructions, I felt confident and relaxed in the kayak and completely loved the experience- we went through quiet canal areas and the time just went so fast - such a wonderful experience thanks so much - just waiting for the photo he took of us so I can prove I did it

Unusual experience of kayaking on the canals of Venice. For those who just notions of English this is possible. On the other hand, 6 kayaks including 2 doubles, that's a lot to hear what the guide is saying because we have to be online. However, this does not in any way take away the pleasure of this experience. Elena and Mattia, the guides were super welcoming and pleasant. In short, a visit to the top that changes the classics!
