a well worth tour with a very knowledgeable and charming guide. two amazing places and no queuing was a tremendous bonus
Fantastic tour, our guide was incredibly knowledgeable on the history of Venice, so was able to provide many insights that we would not have gained if we did not do this tour. Would highly recommend.
The information provided was detailed and helpful, providing a greater understanding of these two places in the history of Venezia. The ticket to get into the Doge's Palace was useful to get into other museums in the San Marco area. You didn't need to do the other museums on the same day as the ticket was good for a longer period of time, but only one entry into each place. You can't go back to the same place twice on a single ticket.
This is a MUST tour when in Venice. It was easy to find the tour guide even in the busy St. Mark's Square. The tour guide was simply amazing and had LOTS of interesting information to make the sites come alive. I felt that I was back in Venice in the 1600s visiting the Doge. The headsets worked perfectly and were very comfortable to wear. I walk slower as I use a cane and am often left behind in tours. But with the headset, I could hear everything and didn't feel that I missed out on anything. I loved the St. Mark's Basilica and the tour guides ability to explain what we were seeing through a Christian lens. Very respectful. DO NOT go through these sites without this tour to help you understand the magnificence of what you are seeing.You even get a bonus tour of the museum in the square. Which was truly amazing. Well worth every single penny!!!
This was an amazing tour from start to finish. It was easy to find the tour group - even in the busy St. Mark's square. The headsets worked throughout - which was helpful for me as I walk slower with a cane and often cannot keep up with the rest of the tour group. However, I could still hear everything that was being said so didn't miss out on anything. Plus, the tour guide was simply amazing. She had all sorts of information that really made the tour come alive - I felt I was back in the 1600s as we travelled through the Doge's Palace. The tour of the Basilica was simply breathtaking. So nice to hear the Christian perspective on how and why the church was laid out as it is. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour. DO NOT go through these sites without a tour guide. You simply miss out on too much and it won't do justice to what you see.
The architecture and history vividly reveals the customs, skills, wisdom, and laws of the day. We highly recommend!

I really enjoyed this tour and was in absolute amazement of the Doge Palace and the Basilica! The tour guide was very informative and would only recommend she carry some sort of flag as she was hard to see and keep up with because of the enormous amounts of people all around.
We had a great tour guide and you can't help but feeling somewhat enlightened after the experience.
There was evidence of high tide in the square but boots were not necessary. We had a fantastic guide and although there is a bit of a line in skip the line I believe it is the best way to go. Going on a guided tour certainly gives more meaning and perspective to what you are seeing. I can't help but feeling so much more enlightened after having this experience.
Was great tour and guide was knowledgable and friendly. This one is a must.
Great tour! Our guide was knowledgeable and shared plenty of information about the Palace and Cathedral. I felt that during the Cathedral portion of the tour, some things seemed to drag on a bit too long in her explanations, but if you are interested enough it was all good information. Would certainly recommend.
Our tour experience was great, and our guide was very knowledgeable about the Palace and St Marks Cathedral. My only issue was that near the end, the talk about the Cathedral seemed to drag on a bit. But if that is what you are interested in hearing about no complaints. Overall excellent tour.
This was a GREAT tour! Our tour guide was not only knowledgeable, but was FUN and told some great side stories about the palace and St. Marks. If we had had more time, we would have taken another tour with the same guide specifically to see the horses. The only negative comment I can make was that we went in December, it was cold, and we didn't realize that the buildings wouldn't be heated. So... the tour was a little chilly. That being said, the tour was worth it to stand in the cold. I would strongly recommend this tour.
This tour is well worth the money, especially the ability to avoid the long queues. Well organised and at a sensible pace to take it all in. The guide was most informative and made the history of Venice come alive. The paintings and frescoes you'll see by some of the greatest renaissance artists are amazing.
What an exceptional tour, incredible buildings and art works and amazing insights shared by the marvellous guides.
The 'skip the line' facility was worth the price of tour in itself - no hour plus wait for our small group :
We were running late due to transport delays and phoned the tour call centre who very kindly rebooked us on the next tour - what superb service.
Can't recommend the tour, the guides or the service provider enough.
Thank you very much for spectacular memories that will remain with us forever.
skip the line tours is the only way to go otherwise your day is wasted, Guide was wonderful, completely knowlegible
This tour was excellent. The tour guide was very interesting, informative and very
Knowledgable about the history of both places. I would recommend this tour for anyone who is looking for a great tour
This was an amazing tour. The Buildings are stunning..... and I have never seen anything like them before! And it's always nice to take these tour, so you can learn all the amazing history!
It was very fulfilling. The tour guide was very competenthe. I can recommend it to my friends.
