Although it seemed a little steep, the card was worth it as we got a great young guide and we skipped the line into the Doge's palace. A real must do. If time is important to you, then get the card.

This was an excellent introduction to Venice. Both guides were informative and gave just the right amount of detail without overwhelming us. The ear pieces make a hugely positive difference. Barbara was particularly entertaining in the morning.

Very interesting. Andrea (Andrew) was very knowledgeable and shared so much on the Doges Palace tour. Laura was an excellent guide as we went through St. Mark's Basilica and the Venice walking tour.

The Doge's Palace was very well done interesting and a worthwhile tour. The meeting point in the gardens is a piece of cake if you arrive by vaporetto. St Marks is magnificent especially if you love byzantine gold. the mosaics are breathtaking. We visited behind the alter and saw the Pala d' Oreo a panel of gold embedded with gems commissioned in 976. Our guide answered questions about the occupation of Venice and purpose of the mask.

I did the tour on Sept 10th. The tour meeting point was nearby and easy to find. Our guide for the Doge's Palace was Arianna. The tour was very informative and Arianna provided the right amount of info so it was easy to understand the history of the building, the palace and the art. It was good to get into the prison area. Great Art pieces.
In the afternoon I went on the 2nd part of the tour to St Marks Basilica. Our guide was Maria. The tour was very informative, whilst not over the top. Inside is amazing. A must see. The Skip the Line ticket is a must as the queues had 2-3 hour waits. Overall, a very good way to see 2 of the top attractions in Venice.

Pros: Excellent tour guides, lots of information, skipped the line.
Cons: 3 hours in between the 2 tours.
They call this a 7 hour tour which is misleading. It's really 2 of the 2-hour tours and nothing in between.
Other than that, we fully enjoyed each of the 2-hour tours. The guides were very informative, cheerful, and making every moment interesting.

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.
