Our Experiences

A Venetian Aperitif On The Lagoon
From €40 per person (duration 1.5h), available all year round

You will get on my "topa" boat and you will experience a great Venetian aperitivo with a stunning view of Venice from the outer lagoon and its magic islands :) As soon as we start cruising, I'll start serving you drinks and snacks. The experience will last about 1 hour and a half and you will get to see its most iconic views (San Marco, Giudecca, Lido di Venezia and much more). At the end of this experience I will drop you off at the same spot where I picked you up. This experience is perfect for anyone: singles, couples, families and groups of friends. Meeting place: Venice (main island). Group size: up to 6 people. You can book directly here or send an email to for enquiries.

Hot Springs and Wine Tastings

This experience will make you fully relax and savour some delicious wines made on the famous Euganean Hills.

Meeting place: Piazzale Roma, Venice. Group size: up to 6 people. You can book directly here or send an email to for enquiries.

    thumb Michele

      Simpatico, divertente, amichevole e coinvolgente. Se quello che cercate è un escursione nella laguna veneziana in compagnia di un veneto apassionato della sua terra allora questa è l'esperienza che fa per voi.

    thumb Mario

    thumb Jessy

      Il giretto e' carino... vedi Venezia da un'altra prospettiva.... anche la zona di attracco e' poco turistica e ci sn dei bei posticini frequentati da gente del luogo! Alessandro e' molto gentile e ti descrive cio' che vedi! Buoni il prosecco, birra artigianale e i cicchetti....

    thumb Silvia

      This was a wonderful experience seeing Venice from a different perspective. We enjoyed seeing the other islands and sites surrounding Venice. There were just 5 of us on the boat so it felt very personal. Alessandro was informative and welcoming. Highly recommend this experience!

    thumb Adrienne

      Esperienza fantastica! Io e le mie amiche grazie ad Alessandro e alla sua barca abbiamo visto Venezia da un’altra prospettiva! Soldi sicuramente ben spesi!
    Alessandro super gentile e simpatico! Grazie!!

    thumb Annagiulia

      Esperienza davvero piacevole! Al contrario del tradizionale giro in gondola, con Alessandro, costeggiandone la costa, si può respirare Venezia dalla giusta distanza, apprezzarne linee e profili.

    thumb Luca

      This was a great way to understand the history and layout of Venice! We were provided with great snacks and drinks on this intimate boy ride. Alessandro gave us some insights and recommendations we haven’t found elsewhere! I would recommend this boat ride if you want to learn more about Venice and get some fantastic recommendations!

    thumb Alex

      Alessandro is an amazing host! Being a native Venetian, he has intimate knowledge of the islands, canals and buildings, and took us to some secret canals and hidden places that we'd never have found on our own. The snacks were authentic, local beer, wine and bread topped with sea inspired spreads and classic Italian meats. We had a few delays getting started, but he was quick to update us of the changes. There was one couple who where being very rude (I believe they've left a mean review, please don't listen to them). Alessandro was very patient with them, but they seemed like they were intent on having a bad time. The rest of the guests, however, were wonderful! They were eager to start conversations, and were interested in all of Alessandro's stories. Overall, an excellent experience. 10 for 10 I'd do it again.
