A very well-planned and organized cruise, pleasant and relaxing.
We wanted a cruise or tour of some kind to introduce us to this area of Italy. Neither of us like big crowds so this seemed perfect, small, intimate, low-pressure and low stress. We both were very sick the day before our original booking, I emailed and the company switched us immediately to another date, no problems and no fuss. The tour guide herself was thoroughly delightful and even asked how we were feeling, she knew. She just oozed information and stories. The pace was perfect along the canal. The visits to the palazzas was great fun and enlightening, a look into a very different time and life-style. Once we got to Venice, we were not abandoned, the guide (Francesca? I'm sorry I didn't write her name down but so very sweet and informative) made sure we all knew where to go next and how to get there. Also, a very good value for the cost.

A fantastic buildup to a wonderful arrival by boat to Venice
We appreciated learning the history of the canal and its wonderful villas but would have appreciated a more concise and brief commentary. Overall it was an enjoyable day.

A very satisfactory day on the Brenta canal
The guide explained everything well in Italian and English - it was clear that she could also do French and German. Three well chosen villas to inspect. Lots to see from the boat. Be careful to keep heads down when passing under the very very low bridges,
