Small group, excellent and informative guides. Francesca was brilliant, the morning guide as well but I don't recall his name.

Very nice tour. Anna explained everything perfectly.
She was happy to answer questions, too.

This was a great experience and definitely worth it. The morning tour of the Doge's palace avoided the long lines and was very informative. Having a few hours off in between the two tours was great since it allowed us to go over to San Georgio and to have a relaxing lunch before our afternoon tour. The afternoon tour of San Marcos again avoided the long line, gave us lots of background on what we were seeing, and made the experience more enriching. But the best was our afternoon guide Rita. After the Basilica, she took us on a walking tour of the nearby neighborhood, showing us the Grimani Palace, the Greek and Albanian neighborhoods and quiet little streets and courts we would never have seen, all with a wonderful commentary on what we were seeing and making the whole experience amazing. This is the best way to see San Marcos Square/Doges Palace/Basilica and a flavor of Venice.

This was definitely worth it and the best way to see these venues especially in the season. The morning tour of the Doges Palace was excellent and very informative with a very friendly guide (I did not get her name) and avoided the long lines that formed even in the morning. The three hour break was great because we could go to San Giorgio and to have a relaxing lunch. The afternoon tour of the Basilica and the walking tour was great especially with our guide Rita who made the whole experience informative and enjoyable. After the Basilica (again avoiding a long wait to get in) where we got so much background and history about the church, she took us on a walking tour of the surrounding neighborhood through the Greek and Albanian sectors, the Grimani Palace, and quiet streets and courtyards just a few blocks away -- with lots of history and color on what we were seeing. It was great and showed us a part of Venice we would have otherwise missed. This is the best way to do this and to get a flavor of the real Venice away from the tourist traps. Not to be missed.

What a wonderful time we had... We were met on time, the headphones were fantastic as was both our tour guides, especially Louiseanna. Thoroughly enjoyed hearing all about Venice and enjoying the sights sounds and ambience .... A complete surprise. We had heard that Venice could be dirty, smelly and expensive! What we found was a beautiful clean city, not so expensive and the only smells that we came across was the tempting aroma of pizza, pasta and Wine!!!!

My sisters and I booked this tour together with our husbands (6 of us), and I can speak for them, as well, when I say that we all loved this tour. Our guide was FABULOUS, gave us a lot of information about what we were seeing, and made the whole tour interesting and fun. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to get the highlights of this fascinating city.

We had a brilliant tour provided by our guide, Ariana. She provided us with lots of very interesting facts, some very funny, about the Doge and what it was like living in Venice at that time. I'd highly recommend this tour.
