My family's tour of the Doge's Palace was excellent and well worth the time and money. Our tour was organized promptly, but there was a 15 minute delay getting in the building. Of course without the tour the wait would have been much longer.

Our guide was pleasant and very knowledgeable. The headphones worked well.

The building itself is amazing in its architecture, preservation, size and scope. You have to keep reminding yourself that this was built so many years ago with no power tools and no construction equipment. One cautionary note about the number of steps would have been appreciated. This tour is a challenge for persons who cannot climb steps.

Overall, a good choice from among the many available.

Very interesting introduction to Venice through a tour of the Doges Palace. If we had just walked through the palace without the narrative we would have missed so much!

The tour itself was fascinating and the guide was superb...the headsets need updating though as it was heard to hear at times.
