Meet the guides
Venice Kayak is founded and owned by René Seindal and Marco Ballarin, but you’re likely to meet a bunch of brilliant and enthusiastic guides too.
Founder and guide
Marco is born and raised in Venice, on the Lido, where he has kayaked since he was nine. He is an accomplished Italian kayak and canoe instructor with the highest level of certification available in Italy.
Founder and guide
René is Danish but lives in Venice since 2008. He speaks Danish, English and Italian fluently. He is also a qualified Tour Leader (accompagnatore turistico).
Giovanni Da Lozzo
Giovanni’s first rowing experience was with his grandfather at the age of five, and from then he’s tried to share his experience, passion and knowledge of the lagoon with whoever is interested. He is an authorised lifeguard.
Lucia is from Vicenza but has lived in Venice since her graduation. She has a degree in archaeology and speaks Italian, English, French and some German.
