Venice's Grand Canal - you may never have seen it, but you know what it looks like. A cinematic backdrop too alluring to resist, the roll-call runs from Don't Look Now through to The Talented Mr. Ripley, stopping off at James Bond, Indiana Jones and The Italian Job along the way. With our unique boat tour you can gaze in wonder at the 170 or so splendid buildings, palaces and churches that line this most incredible of High Streets.
Your tour guide will evoke the glory days of Byron, Shelley and Browning and point out the palaces of the rich and famous; you'll be told why there are so many eastern and Moorish influences, why so many juxtaposed styles of architecture. You'll also be taken off the beaten track to explore some of the more hidden and secretive canals of Venice, to be given some views of Venice life that simply cannot be enjoyed other than by boat, and you'll be left with a beguiling impression of this most evocative city. Truly, you haven't seen Venice if you haven't been guided around by boat.
The tours run in high season, and your private water taxi (note, this is a small motor-boat, not a gondola) will have no more than 8 to 10 people aboard. The tour lasts about an hour and typically runs each day of the week at 03.30 PM.
