Brilliant tour, guides were very knowledgeable and spoke very good English. In my opinion, having a guided tour of these sites is essential if you want to go to them. I wouldn't have appreciated them anywhere near as much without having a guide to explain their history and importance.

We had Stephania for the Doges Palace tour and Maria for our afternoon walking and Basilica. They were both excellent. They engaged us all with their knowledge. Thoroughly enjoyable!

This is a great tour! If you plan to visit Venice and would like to hear some history and learn something about this beautiful and charming city, you should consider this tour. I am very happy that I booked this tour before flying to Italy. Skipping the long lines, is definitely a plus. Mirco, our tour guide, is Venetian and a wonderful guide. He is very passionate about the history of his ancestors and his Venice. I thoroughly enjoyed hearing him talk about Venice.

The lines are long for Doge's Palace and the Basilica, so purchasing this in advance was well worth it. Doge's Palace is a must see with an experienced guide as we had. The tour of the Basilica was informative and we had a lovely walking tour of the neighborhood adjoining San Marco about life in Venice. As a bonus, the ticket included entry into the Correr Museum. We're not usually keen on museums, but this was great. It included the Imperial Rooms of the Royal Palace, as well as other rooms with artifacts from Venice. Just fabulous to see.

We looked at loads of tours and couldnt decide which to go for, eventually settled on this one. Excellent tour highly recommended, great tour guides and much smaller group than most we saw walking about, really good for anyone who wants to see both locations and learn about them in detail, we then decided to return to the basilica to visit the museum not included on tour but highly recommended for a second visit. You wont be disappointed if you choose this tour.

Very interesting trip. Our guide Barbara was great. It is always good to see how countries were ruled in Ancient Times.
The palace was beautiful with its paintings and gold adorned ceilings. The Cathedral with its mosaics was beautiful too. A morning well spent.

This was great. We loved it. It is a lot of walking, I would suggest a morning walk, so you are with fresh legs. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and would do it again.

Highly recommend! Venice is a very beautiful but very crowded city. There is so much to experience, and the best way to do that is to book this tour. We had very minimal wait times, had the pleasure of experienced, enthusiastic, well-spoken tour guides who seemed genuinely happy to be sharing their knowledge of historical and contemporary Venice. Despite the fact that there were many other tour groups, we were not rushed through any of the venues, and the guides maintained "space" so each group had its own throughout the building tours. The Walking Tour was a challenge because the streets are so crowded, but the wireless receivers and earbuds made hearing her easy even if we didn't always see her. If I can find our guides' names I will add them to this review -they deserve recognition.

We booked several Viator tours in different cities in Italy and they were all fabulous. The guides were highly educated, their command of English was great, they knew how to manage the group under pressure of serious crowds, noise, and time limits, and to top it all off, they were very nice people too. I highly recommend this tour. It is worth every penny, and it saves so much time to skip the lines. Thanks Viator.

Great tour! Very professional guide. I recommend this to anyone visiting Venice. I was impressed when the guide shushed members of the public a not in the tour for being disrespectful and loud in the sanctuary of San Marco. She was also very aware of the local customs when walking through the narrow streets between canals. She shared great information on Venetian history and she was a great communicator. Bravo!
