Great boat ride around Venice , picks up at the train station , bus ports and cruise ports and takes you to st. Marks square , lido and Murrano. There is a transfer to burrano. My husband and I got off at Lido and grabbed a drink by the beach and ate gelato and lunch on the island. Only downside is this cruise does not go down the grand canal so we had to buy tickets for the public boat to see it .

Great value for money. We really enjoyed the boat rides and visiting the islands. I would highly recommend this.

Beautiful trip , well organised. It wasn’t entirely obvious that we weren’t looking for a Viator sign for our boat trip , but we were helped by one only the city sightseeing staff. Apart from that it was great

This is great if you are limited in time like we were,we got on and did the full circle and on the second trip we got off to do some sightseeing,for what you pay it was worth it,not many stops but they were nice stops to explore at your leisure.

Used it to go to Murano - it was on time, clean so couldn't ask for much more.

I was having a one day trip for Venice and I can tell you that is the best choice for the value. You can see all the important attractions on your own and you got a good schedule that can suit everyone.

Very nice tour around Venice Grand Canal - Got to see all the beautiful and interesting places Venice has to offer - I really enjoyed this tour..!
• Submitted 16 Jul 2018
We loved this tour, we can't recommend it enough.. It does a huge lap of Venice including St Marco Square, Lido beach and Murano. It takes a while to do but if you plan on visiting these beautiful places then the hop on hop off is the way to go

Allowed us to see so much of the area

Really worth the money. Gondolas are way too expensive at 80 to 100 euros. This is a cheaper option if you are on a budget and you can just hop on hop off at any of the stops. Youll even get to see the Murano island. Highly recommend you do this tour.

A great way to see the outside of Venice and to visit the other Island's. Well with its money.
• Submitted 01 Mar 2018

This was a great value and one of the best ways to learn about the Venice area. Highly recommend to do this at the beginning of you stay so youll know where to go on the balance of your visit to the area. Only complaint was the main tour stop was hard to find. Need to have clearer directions on how to find it from the train terminal.
