The Doges palace was larger and more impressive in real life than expected. St.Marks was closed on the ground floor due to flood damage from last November, but the interior could be viewed well from the upper balcony. The tour guide Monica was excellent, very clear, knowledgeable and considerate. It is worth booking a small tour to skip the ticket queues, as everyone still has to queue for security checks as well. We were also offered a free admission into a glass factory nearby at the end of the tour which was great.
Very well organised and informative tour. It was great to bypass all the queues and a good amount of information about the places that we saw. Thanks also for the tip about the events of the Carnevale. Highly recommended.
The guide was incredible!! We learned so much about the history of Venice. His English was perfect and his knowledge was encyclopedic! It was the highlight of our visit to Venice
Great experience. Very knowledgeable and engaging Guide. We were a small group of 6 so felt very personal. Seamless and quick entry to all sites. Would highly recommend.
Our guide, Stefania, was excellent. The Doge's Palace is not to be missed and having her guide us through it made so much richer!
