  • Just finished a lesson. Our instructor, a lady with a Australian accent (whose name I can't remember, oops) was very friendly and helpful. It was an amazing experience and she was very patient in her teaching method, plus gave us a lot of local history . I would definitely recommend this experience over getting a gondola ride.
  • We loved our lesson with Marta. Rowing the batea takes coordination and is quite the work out. But rowing on the Grand Canal as the sun is setting is an experience we will never forget.
  • Incredible experience! Our teacher Anna was very generous with her local knowledge, history, and passion for Venice. We had so much fun learning this Venetian art. It was the highlight of our time in Venice! Love the ethos of this NGO as well!
  • This was so much fun! We did this as a family in two boats. Such a unique and interactive way to experience a gondola ride while avoiding the usual Venice tourist cliché. Thanks to our instructors Lisa and Giulia who were both lovely and very friendly.
  • We had an awesome rowing experience with Caterina and Luigina. Was a great sunny day and we had lots of fun exploring the waterways. It took awhile to get the confidence for standing up but once you got the hang of it, it was really simple. Highly recommended.
