Our party of 4 took the Murano and Grand Canal trip our first day in Venice - it was spectacular! We met our guide and boarded a private water taxi for a leisurely and informative tour of the Grand Canal and the surrounding area. There is no better way to see Venice: private boat with a well-informed guide. We had all of our Venice questions answered, took multitudes of amazing photos, and got our bearings to facilitate the remainder of our stay. Could not have asked for a better tour nor can I recommend more highly.
