This was the highlight of my trip to Venice and a great way to experience the canals away from the crowds and heat. Julia was a wonderful guide. They provide all the equipment you need - even shorts and a t-shirt if you come unprepared. It was pricey for the Canadian dollar but I substituted this trip for a canal boat ride or gondola ride and am glad I did and took the path less travelled. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Booked a paddle and snack tour via their website. Took payment and accepted booking. Not 10 minutes later my phone rings and it is then stating this tour is not available. Gives me some BS about not being allowed to tour at that time, well don’t advertise it on your website and take bookings then. Tried to insist we take a tour at a different time or on a different day, we couldn’t, this was the only time and day we had available. Asked that they refund my payment which they agreed to, but apparently they are the only company in the world that thinks it takes days or it would appear possibly weeks, to process a CC refund. Emailed and called, just being told that I need to be patient! Well patience has run out, they still owe me about 300euro. I will be reporting to CC company on my return and just arrange for them to do the charge back. DO NOT TRUST THIS COMPANY OR THEIR WEBSITE.

What an amazing experience! For anyone who likes kayaking this is perfect. Our guide was great, knowledgeable, and friendly. She kept us safe from motorboats and angry gondoliers. It’s a perfect way to see Venice! Just go do it!!

My 13 year old god-daughter and I shared a double kayak, with our guide in another kayak, for the "Canals" experience pre-booked via the English version of the website. All the people we dealt with at Venice by Water were so helpful and kind. On the day we had booked for, we got lost trying to find them and our guide came to meet us and show us the rest of the way. It then emerged that I had forgotten we would need to bring our passports for ID! He very kindly arranged a session with one of his colleagues for the next day at no extra cost and she fit us in despite other plans. (Better to bring your ID the first time though, than to count on being able to do this!). It was a fabulous, unforgettable, experience, though a bit humbling that my young companion was better at it than I was!

We booked well in ad an email with several confirmation emails. We arrived well in advance and waited over an hour. No one showed up. No one answered our calls or responded to emails. We will try to get a refund. Very disappointing. They took our deposit and asked us to confirm but they don’t seem to have the same standards for themselves.
