Was glad to have Monica (not sure if I remember correctly). She was a good guide I have came across so far who takes jnto consideration of our old age parents n other elderly in the tour. Her explanation was clear and precise. Thumbs up.

Perfect way to learn all about these two prominent historical places of Venice.
Mirco our guide was so proud and knowledgeable on the history of both. His telling was entertaining and very educational. Would highly recommend this tour as you learn so much about what you are seeing.

The tour guide Marita was wonderful. Knew her history about Venice and not just the city but the people and inhabitants as well. Also great recommendations for other tours and restaurants.

Our guide Antonella was awesome. Tour is completely worth it specially if you have a knowledgeable guide who can go over the art with so much passion.
Will totally recommend it.

excellent tour affected by continual rain on the day we took it which made things hard for the tour guide and guests. Tour guide was excellent and coped very well with the difficult situation created by the crowds and the rain.
My only criticism would be that at 24, the group size was too large, making it very hard for everyone to keep up in the difficult conditions.

Our tour guide Susan is a university professor in Venice. She was very knowledgeable about the Doge and St. Mark's. She was enthusiastic about her area of expertise and kept us all interested.

We took this tour with friends and we really enjoyed it. Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The tour is a longer one, lasting about 3 hrs. The tour includes a number of steep steps etc.
