VERY INTERESTING TOUR THE GUIDE WAS KNOWLEDGEABLE THERE ARE A FAIR AMOUNT OF STEPS IF YOUR GOINT TO VENICE ITS A MUST SEE
The guide was knowledgeable, entertaining and connected very well with the group. This was by far one of our best tours during a three week vacation in Eurooe. My family of 5 all enjoyed the tour and we all walked away with a greater understanding of life during the Venetian times.
This was a small group tour and the guide was very informed and patient with children's questions. The ear phones used is a great system as the guide can speak to you through the ear phones without bothering others.
The directions to the meeting point could be better. A highly recommended tour.
Our tour guide was very well informed. She framed the palace within the historical perspective that it deserved. It is interesting to learn how the Doge was prevented from getting too much power. In one case, the Doge was killed by his own government for not remaining the leader of his equals.
Knowledgeable guide, great history that you wouldn't know about from school. We originally had no idea about this palace and what it meant along with the history that came with it. We showed up a little late and the guide was able to still get us in and up to speed.
Excellent tour with good general background as well as specific info on site.
Guide was very knowledgeable. Loved having the headset so I could hear everything she was saying. Would definitely use skip the line again.
Heel mooi paleis en veel interessante informatie van gids gehad over hoe het regeringsbestel van de staat Venetië er uit heeft gezien
The tour guide was excellent. His knowledge of the history of Venice made the tour very enjoyable. Unfortunately, I don't know his name. I have taken many tours, and he was one of the best guides I have had. He also spoke very good English.
This was a not to be missed excellent tour! The marvellous tour guide whose name I think was Adriana was an Art Historian and really knew her subject inside out The Palace is simply awe inspiring and the prisons were pretty gruesome. I highly recommend it.
The guide Stephanie was outstanding and very informative! We were met on time and the sights of the palace were unbelievable! The painting, frescoes and size of the rooms were mind-boggling----what wealth the Doges possessed-unfortunately mostly old men when they received the position-but had time for courtiers and partying---don't miss this tour-especially skipping the line-now with the summer season coming-loads of people now, thousands later!!!!
Fantastic tour that gives you a good overview of the history of Venice. No waiting in line and very friendly experienced staff.
We've been very happy with the explanations given by our guide, Stefania.
We enjoyed the tour and it was not very busy.
The guide on this tour was great. She clearly explained everything we saw. It was nice not to have to wait on line to enter.

Terrific tour, informative and interesting.
Was a great morning
Plenty of stairs and a couple of the areas are quite narrow
The guides English was great. She did wait until all were there to listen, and then did her explanations of the site. Not rushed or hurried. The fact that there were a great many steps should be part of the profile.
Our guide was excellent....she told us about the lives of the doges and also their servants, the visiting seamen and the poor people who lived in Venice at that time. It all came alive with her descriptions, given in perfect English. She explained in simple terms how the doges were elected, and how the system prevented any one family from taking control of Venice. She shared her love of Venice and its history, and we learnt so much from her. Thank you.
To improve the marketing....I thought the 'tour' included the rest of Venice, so was disappointed when we came to the end of the tour of the palace.
We had a great time on this tour with our guide Gina, she was very informative and also funny and slightly eccentric, she gave us a taste of what the Venetian people are like which was an added bonus. The tour itself was good and informative and gave us a brief history to beginnings and development of Venice, I especially liked that we got to walk over the Bridge of Sighs, having seen it from the outside it was interesting to see it from the inside too. Also on this tour we were given a ticket that gave us free entry to the Museo Correr which we used on another day, all in all a fabulous morning.
Learned more in two hours than in a year of off site study. Excellent guide, brilliant facility.
