What people are saying about Doge's Palace

A really good tour but lacked the advertised boat.

A really good tour with a great guide. Disappointing after a ‘luxury’ speedboat was advertised to find a plain old average water taxi was used. Definitely not luxury as the advertising and ticket guaranteed. We felt misled and particularly as there are some more luxurious water taxis in Venice than the two used in our tour. The first was very average and small which ferried the group to the island to go up the bell tower. The second boat for the remainder of the tour was also not a luxury speedboat. One other disappointing factor was the advertised tour set a maximum of 9 persons but 10 were booked. For the price of this tour what is advertised and promised should be met. A really good tour that could have been great if the boat was as advertised and the stipulated maximum number stuck to.

Great Guide...cheerful and very informativr

We were in a group of 25 and our guide Francesca started right on time. She was a very knowledgeable lady who passed on information with humor and a smile. It is a long tour with many steps so perhaps not for any one with trouble climbing 300 year old worn staircases! We were very pleased that we took this tour as we would have missed so much if we had guided ourselves. Bypassing the ticket office alone must have saved 45 mins. It was very emotional walking over the bridge of sighs remembering all the prisoners walking to death. Well done Francesca...you made our visit to your lovely city come to life.

Excellent tour-expect a little wait in the queue

The content of this tour is wonderful. Audio guide is thorough and comprehensive. We were a little surprised that the pre-booking does not not allow quicker acces to the Palace. The staff allow chunks of the three queues (no ticket, pre-paid and groups) through in turn to regulate acces to the Palace and no one que is favoured. Having said this once inside the tour is excellent.

Missed important sections as not wheelchair accessible

Our guide was very knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed listening to all the information she was giving us. However it says it’s wheelchair accessible- in a way it was but you had to split up from your tour group and go to different areas to get lifts so you missed chucks of the tour as your headset went out of range. Including the bridge of sighs

Great tour. The guide was very informative and pleasant.

Excellent tour. The guide was very informative and knew her history and answered all questions with ease. She was also very pleasant and likeable. The only criticism at the start is the TOUR sign was put up a little late so we were a little anxious until we found the right tour group.
