Beautiful sunset

The guide spoke 5 languages. That in itself was impressive! Spanish, English, Italian, French, and German throughout the tour. The boat went around the lagoons and the islands that make up Venice. The sky was clear and beautiful. We were able to get great pictures. Although we didn’t actually get to see a sunset, we were able to see the colors of the sky and full moon. Venice is a special place and if you have the chance to experience it from the water looking on to land in the evening, it is truly enchanting.

We were super lucky with the weather and absolutely great sun, but the boat went against the sun and you had a tour with lots of stories about everything you saw. Unfortunately, we had already made one before because this was not apparent in the description, so for us it was double. So if you want to do this tour you don't necessarily need to book another tour. It was incredibly beautiful to see everything at the moment when the sun goes down and it is definitely worth more than a gondola ride in the evening!

I highly recommend ! This walk at sunset is magnificent, a crossing allowing us to see islands and places of Venice that we cannot see otherwise. A friendly welcome with a Spritz and some crisps, a large comfortable boat ideal for taking nice photos, relaxing and resting at the end of a day's walk while crossing this grand canal with a view of Venice by night that never is not the same as day to see really and a guide telling the essentials about each place in a clear and simple way and in all languages! 1h15 walk to do when you go to Venice everything was great
