Doge Palace: Skip-the-Line Tour with Gondola Ride
- Small group
- Skip the ticket line
- Duration options: 1.5 - 2.5 hours
There was some slight confusion at the meeting place as they had 2 different tours, one JUST the gondola ride and the other "walking and gondola tour" at the same place. Our guide was OK but there wasn't a lot of "content" in the tour and her English was a little broken, but understandable. At times on the gondola there were traffic jams on the canal. I think they are trying to cram too many toursist out there to make more money!
Tour guide was knowledgeable and passionate about Venice. Two hours isn't enough to take in everything but its a great start. The only thing that would have been appreciated is if the Gondola driver could have offered some information but was just silent the entire ride.
This was a wonderful tour that was paced perfectly. Our guide was very knowledgeable and easy to follow. It was a joy to navigate the streets without all the crowds and the earpieces worked very well for easy hearing.
I was five minutes late and couldn't find the group. I tried calling the number phone number listed but it didn't go anywhere. my fault for being late but I wish they'd leave a number for the the guide
The legends and ghost stories weren’t the best, also advertised as running 105 minutes when in fact it was closer to 75 minutes long?? On the plus side some interesting facts on Venice’s history.
