The meeting point was easy to find and the contact person was easy to identify with a tour sign. The tour was in a small group and therefore pleasant. The guide then led us through the Doge's Palace fairly quickly in the last half an hour. The guide was easy to understand through the headphones that were provided.

Perfect. I recommend The visit with the guide + audio phone which in addition to describing the place and its history in an excellent Francis has been able to embellish lots of very nice little anecdotes. which made the visit particularly interesting. The meeting place is perfect even in full crowds as is the case during Carnival.

On your site you have the disclosure of Doge's Palace and Doge's Palace. I bought both, one for 3/10 and one for 4/10 and only realized on the day that it was the same. Unable to cancel, I lost tickets. I suggest you change and leave a single name, not to confuse the tourist. Is there anything you can do in my case?
