One of the lock gates malfunctioned so had to disembark DANGEROUSLY and combine 2 boats into ONE boat with ZERO AC and ZERO water because they did not transfer the water in 90 degree heat. Boat company refuses any refund or even just new ticket to do the trip properly!

An excellent and very relaxing mode of transport. Ideal to see magnificent palaces of a bygone era. Really worth the trip.

I guess you could say that we were not impressed with our tour of the Brenta Canal for several reasons - none of which had to do with the crew or the guide. We were disappointed in the boat that brought for us to cruise the canal on – it looked nothing like the brochure
