Sure you can do a gondola ride in Venice (of course!) but another way to see the city is to do your own paddling with a kayak tour. A fun outing that takes you through the back canals, around the city, to the lagoon islands, or -it is Venice- the Grand Canal. You can choose the type and length of tour that fits your desires, from a half-day to a multi-day package.

They also offer family tours, with kids riding along in tandem, private as well as group tours, and night tours. You can also reserve a romantic kayak outing, just the tw of you and the guide, along dreamy canals, stopping for a picnic or perhaps a Spritz, whatever you choose for your honeymoon or romantic day.

The folks at Venice Kayak will set it up and take you around safely. They will also take photos of your tour for free!
