Extra Time Duration: 60 minutes

Glide along the Canals by Private Water Taxi

ADD ON One Hour Private Guided Motor Boat Ride.
With this optional upgrade guests have their own exclusive private motor boat, a separate boat driver and a separate tour guide for a total of 2 professional people at disposal for 60 minutes to experience Venice waterways in comfort and style.

Note to parents with small children: Although Venice is a wonderful place to visit it is not the most stroller friendly place. This beautiful city has the singular characteristic of being built on water and consequently there are no cars, lots of bridges, and lots of sidewalks along the canals. While there are many positive aspects of being in a city with no cars, it is not easy to get around with strollers as everything is cobblestone and you need to go up and down bridges constantly. Taking a child in a stroller will involve a significant amount of lugging the stroller up and then going down, over each bridge. Consider putting young children in a backpack carrier whenever possible.

When you contact our family vacation consultants let us know as much about your children interests in order to make the experience as interesting as possible for them.

Those traveling between November and March may wish to bring rubber boots in preparation for Venice’s acqua alta (high water).

A little advance preparation in learning about the city will reward you and your family with a very enjoyable visit. To enhance the experience, Nancy Aiello Tours suggests children books so that you can prepare for the trip.

All our tours are private, luxurious, and totally customized to suit your desires, which means that you do not share your tour with anyone else – without having to accommodate other people’s interests. Our private tours are exclusive to one booking party and we do not combine separate reservations to form groups.

TESTIMONIALS

  • Hi Ann,
    I wanted to follow up on our tours we had last week. We had an absolute wonderful experience with both of our guides. They truly made our trip to Italy wonderful. We loved Lucia in Rome; the kids will never forget her. We are so thankful we were able to spend three days with her. Please extend our thanks and appreciation to her!
    We also had a great experience with Stephania in Pompeii. She kept our tired and hot children engaged and happy the entire time, which as a parent, is priceless! We will absolutely recommend your company to anyone traveling to Italy. We wish you were in more countries!! Thanks again,

    You beat me to it. I planned on sending an email but with the holiday I was set behind one day and it is birthday week in my house! Me, my husband and my daughter. In either case I cannot begin to thank the hosts Nina & Alfredo for providing a most wonderful experience for the Miller’s. They were apprehensive about going as they are “loners” for the most part. Even down to the hour I believe they were trying to get out of it!! Not so after they arrived and settled in. In fact I got many pictures from that evening. Everything was perfect. It was the best way for them to end their 12 day Italian Fantasy. I specialize in servicing very high end , VIP clients. I would like to receive additional info on what your company has to offer. I’m always searching for “over the top” experiences. Thank you again and I look forward to hearing from you.

    I would be happy to put a review on TripAdvisor. Our overall experience couldn’t have been better. Ann was very helpful through the booking process, and very prompt in her response to my queries both before booking and before the first tour. We couldn’t have asked for a better tour guide in Cinzia. She was wonderfully engaging with our boys and was really able to capture their interest, especially in the more difficult Vatican Tour. My husband and I really learned a lot as well! It was especially great to have her for both tours, the continuity really helped. I would have no hesitation at all in recommending Nancy Aiello to my friends. I found you quite by accident when I was researching family tours in Italy. I believe you have a link on a website Ciaobambino? Thank you again for a delightful experience for my family.
