Serene Journey

The one-way journey commenced from San Marco Venice along the Brenta Riveria to Padua.
Francesco was very welcoming and spoke impeccable English. The journey along the laguna and Brenta Riviera was very interesting and very tranquil as you glided along the calm water. The countryside was beautiful and the stop at Oriago was delightful. There was a small market and a great fruiterer where we bought some fruit that we ate for lunch whilst sitting by the canal on a bright and sunny day.
All the villas we visited were very interesting and the talks given by Francesca were very informative.
The tour is highly recommended.

Excellent guide and wonderful visits to the ancient Venetian villas. It’s a pity that the Brenta is low on water though.
A good trip, thanks to the sunny weather!

Greatly enjoyed the knowledgeable and unobtrusive guidance of the lady who took our tour on Tuesday last. She was excellent! The boat was comfortable, and the Brenta Canal a delight . Instead of the lunch, we found a charming local bar instead, and rejoined the guide and group afterwards.
River Cruise Disaster

The Villa Pisani was the third Villa visited and was well worthwhile. The other 2 Villas were okay but not impressive. The tour guide on the boat was very good in describing the history of the Villas. The lunch stop was a disaster for me and my partner. We ordered from a menu in advance of arriving at the restaurant. However, for some reason they got our order totally wrong. We had one hour to have lunch but we didn't served our second course until 40 minutes after arrival. The main course arrived after 70 minutes but we didn't have time to finish it. This was packaged for takeaway along with a fruit salad dessert. We didn't get a coffee. Towards the end of the cruise I asked if there was a taxi stand where we docked and was told no. The tour guide offered to call us a taxi but couldn't get through. we ended up calling our airbnb host who ordered us a taxi. The cruise was far too long (9.5 hours) and the boat was not as advertised. It had plastic seats on the top deck which were not attached to the deck. People had to make their own way back to Venice but the train and bus service required a taxi to get there. A complete shambles of a finish.
Nice landscape, few visitations

Basically a nice tour but we did not see the interior of Villa Pisani although we were supposed to have a guided tour of this villa according to our vouchers. Reason: group of 30 (only 10 people were English-speaking!) was allegedly too big.
