The history of the palace was so interesting. It brought to life the stories we learn in school when we were young. Your tour guide was really good! Great experience! Highly recommend to see when in Venice!
Our guide was knowledgeable -her English was excellent and from our perspective concerned our ability to hear hear when the wireless hardware would "drop-out" in certain passages of the "Secret Tour" If you care about the Doge's Palace history -- this is the way to go!
The tour was organised efficiently. Our guide was very knowledgeable and I learnt a lot.
A great tour. Excellent tour guide and easily understood with headsets. Doge's Palace is well worth the visit.
It was very informative an interesting tour. We enjoyed every minutes of it.
Our Guide was a woman named Marie and she was fabulous! We started in the courtyard, then moved through the Doge's Palace, taking back rooms, getting behind-the-scenes that certainly other tours don't do. Marie was fascinating and was so knowledgeable, she talked to us about one of the Doge Prison's most famous inmates: Casanova. His story while imprisoned was really a treat to learn. Highly recommend this tour!!

The guide was very good. The paintings on the ceiling were breathtaking.
This was one of our favorite tours during our trip. Getting to see places in the prison that others do not get to see and hearing the history was very special. Rafaela, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and able to answer all questions asked with a little bit of humor thrown in. The time allotted was just right and when it was over we spent more time on our own in the Palace. We highly recommend this tour.
It was one of our best tours. The Tour Guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant. This place is huge and very interesting. I definitely recommend this tour
The tour was very nice and informative. I was surprised the rest of the Doge's Palace was not
So super interesting. You learn things about Venice and it's history that you wouldn't ordinarily learn. It was a great experience and our your guide was so knowledgeable.
This was a great and working very informative. Our guide wonderful and a well for her knowledge. We did this as an early morning to her and there are very few people in the palace at that time we didn't have to fight the crowds. I would highly recommend this to her to anybody interested in the history of the area.
Our guide, Elena, was wonderful, well-informed, and very interesting. The tour itself was also wonderful, visiting secret areas of the palace, as well as the rest of the palace on our own time. Highly recommended.
Daniella is an excellent tour guide. She gave so much detail and answered everyones questions well. Seeing the prison and the areas that I would've never toured if I was going on my own was excellent. She gave us lots of time to explore the area and I would recommend this to anyone visiting the Doge's Palace.
The tour of the secret rooms was informative and fantastic. Upon completion of the tour you can take te regular tour throughout the rest of the palace. Well worth it!
This was a brilliant trip, so interesting. Not only do you get to see the secret side of the palace but after this guided tour you can walk round the rest of it. Our guide 'Elena' was superb, she was so enthusiastic, knowledgeable and patient! Great morning.
This was a fabulous tour. Loved learning the history of the Palace.
This is another place that you must get the skip the line tour. Probably best to go for the first tour in morning if you can. When we arrived St. Mark's Square was virtually empty but at 11:00 when we exited the tour the Square was totally packed.
The tour itself was a lot of fun and very enlightening. Casanova's cell and the stories of his escape and the view from the bridge of Sighs were highlights.
Excellent tour with highly informative and interesting guide. Would not have missed it. Really brought the history alive and made the whole visit to the Doge's Palace very enjoyable.
Great tour with a very knowledgeable guide who spoke very good English. History of the building and people that used it through the years was great to hear and understand the background. Timing was a perfect amount to see this large site and leaving time to explore the additional area on our own. The secret areas were a definite plus to the itinerary and put the pieces of the puzzle together i.e., what holds up the elaborate ceilings.
Well organised,we learnt so many interesting facts that we would never have known about on our own.Rather difficult climbing all those stairs if you were unfit seniors! Perhaps you already advertise this information.
Very interesting. Good guide. Spoke pretty good English but more importantly spoke very clearly and slowly.
