Description

this is your chance to experience how the gondoliers of Venice manage to row and steer their gondolas in the small canals of the city, just by paddling on one side...

After a quick security briefing at the Venice Marina, you and your family will board the gondola. This type of gondola is a bit special, and a lot more stable than the black Venetian gondolas though. No one will fall into the water! First, you will learn how to row, and once you have gotten the hang of it, it will be time to steer the gondola!

In no time, you will take a trip down the smaller canals of Venice and into the lagoon. On the way back, you will visit the gondola museum and squero (gondola reparation atelier) and enjoy a few snacks and refreshments.

A hands-on activity that all the members of your family will enjoy!

A Truly Engaging Experience

Family Twist provided several kid-friendly tours on our trip to Paris and London. The guides were knowledgeable and related easily to our children. We were all thoroughly engaged because of the professional and friendly guides. The little gifts for the children were a sweet perk.

Family Twist Review

Our experience with Family Twist was wonderful. Our main interaction was with two of their employees, Susanna and Camille. They were prompt, courteous and extremely helpful. One our most recent trip to Paris, Family Twist engaged two guides for us. Each of them was perfect in their own way. For the historic part of the itinerary, we had Katia. She was very knowledgeable and was able to engage a 9 year old for long periods of time. She has great games for my child that entertained him and educated him at the same time. The other guide, Laurenie, is a chocolate expert who gave us a fantastic walking chocolate tour of Paris.
