Great trip, but............

Had we known the water taxi was showing the same areas, houses, stories etc. we would not have spent the money on the Venice tour. However, the boat was great and comfortable b/c it was such a windy day.

When we purchased the trip, it was advertising a free drink. However, they told us that they quit offering that several weeks ago.

Perfectly paced calm tour of the local waterways and beautiful homes. Colorful tour guide with interesting points of interest and stories to go with them. Missed the complimentary drinks and libations included in July tour. Sunset was gorgeous from the boat.

The "Speaker" was great! Very enthusiastic, funny, and educated on the homes we saw.

It is very interesting to see all these beautiful homes with no one around to enjoy them. LOL

Definitely would recommend.

We had a great time on our 5:00 cruise. The captain was very knowledgeable of the area and funny. My only suggestion would be to have a better selection of snacks, like perhaps a cheese and cracker platter to go with the wine??

We had a great trip on the water seeing all the expensive homes. Our only problem was, two in our group are hard of hearing and they had trouble understanding the commentary. They still enjoyed the scener though.

The Captain was great. Loved his narrative about the homes and sights. Bar was generous with their pours. Well worth the money.

Highly recommended. Boat ride and the most spectacular views from local waterways are definitely worth the trip.

My husband and I took a 3PM trip and really enjoyed ourselves on the open upper deck. Even though it was a very hot day we were completely comfortable on the top deck (although there is an air conditioned main deck if you prefer). The captain narrated as we went along, pointing out landmarks and houses of the rich and famous. It was a beautiful ride, we enjoyed the commentary, staff was pleasant, ordered tickets over the phone which worked fine. The also serve sodas, beer and wine included. Pleasant 1 1/2 hour trip and we believed good value for the money. Would definitely recommend.

Everything excellent but if the driver wants to make comments he need to learn to be more positive.

What a GREAT way to spend an afternoon!!!!!!

We were looking for an activity that we could do with our visiting relative. I came across this on another website and then fortunately found Zerve's website. We saved HALF PRICE by booking with Zerve! It was so easy to book with Zerve and print out our reservation. This tour was well worth $10 per person!!!!! We had a wonderful time on board. The Captain was entertaining and we liked his style of oration. In fact, all the staff were very attentive and helpful. We were pleasantly surprised that the drinks on board were very good... and even the hot dogs were good! We plan on returning soon as this is a great way to spend a day when you are wondering what to do with a free afternoon.... with or without visiting family. And believe me... I will definitely be booking it with Zerve!
