Well worth the extra money to see all the hidden rooms etc the other tourists with normal admission ticket didn't get to see
this was very good, a very knowledgeable guide spoke good English. a very interesting tour well recommended
Nice behinds the scenes tour to parts of the palace not available to others, then access to what they got to see. Guide forgot to exchange our coupon for tickets which caused a bit of fuss at the gate.
Very interesting insight into the history of Venice and the figurehead role of the Doges.
The guide was very knowledgeable and engaging.
Very informative and fun tour. Lots of steps but lots of information and "inside" sights. Our guide was terrific!!! We recommend this tour!
Skipping the line at the Doge's Palace alone was worth the price of this tour. Added to that, we had an excellent, knowledgable and informative guide who gave a great introduction to the palace in general and the parts of it that most visitors never see in particular. If, like me, you like to see everything in an attraction, then I recommend allowing the whole day to complete this tour and then take an audio guide to see the rest of the palace: it really is a fabulous place.
Fascinating tour and our guide was incredible! She told such vivid stories about the Doge's and Casanova, I'll remember this tour forever! Highly recommend!
This was a very interesting tour. I learned quite a bit of new history from the guide. It helped put other historical pieces into place for me. My boys loved the bridge of sighs.
The meeting point and start of tour easy to find. Excellent tour guide and you get to see parts of the palace not available to a normal entry ticket. You do get to enter in a separate line however as the tours offered are at 8.30 and 9 am there were no queues and it was Easter Monday, so not sure about the validity of skipping the line given our previous days experience with the Basilica tour.
More should be advised about not allowing back packs as the start of the tour was held up by individuals having to go off to store their packs.
Also be reminded that once the secret itineries part of the tour finishes you are then left to tour the Doges Palace by yourself with no guide.
Alessandra, our guide was informative and charming. She brought the living history of the palace to life. After the tour we were left to our own devices and were able to then explore the main areas at our leisure.
Excellent insight into the real behind the scenes activity of the Doge's Palace, I would thoroughly recommend this tour
An excellent tour with a knowledgeable guide who explained and described clearly and with a wonderful sense of humour. I wouldn't hesitate to take this tour again if I return to Venice. The loss of 30 minutes from the tour as originally advertised didn't detract at all.
