It was well-organized. We started and ended on time. Our guide was very well-informed.
I have been to the palace itself before but this tour showed us parts that we don't usually see and gave us a whole new insight as to how the Venice system of government worked. Also a real contrast to the sumptuous rooms of the main palace. The guide was really good and explained things well in excellent English. I would certainly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see the parts which are not in the guide book.
Always nice to go to a place like this before the crowds. And to go behind the scenes always makes it extra special. Our guide told intriguing stories that totally transported you back to Venice of old. The Palace is fascinating and the artwork is incredible. This can all be seen after the tour. It's the prison cells and the stories that made this tour worthwhile.
Great tour. Aga was an amazing guide as she was fun and informative. Loved her and the tour.
This tour was amazing....our guide was wonderful and so informative. You learn so much about the Venetian history with just this tour. I highly recommend this tour and the skip the line is the only way to go!
No lines, no waiting. Our guide was very informative. It was great to be in a small group and see behind the scenes.
Really great tour, the guide was exceptional, funny knowledgable and very likeable she bought the whole palace to life for us my husband thought she should be on the stage she was so entertaining, really good use of our holiday money,very enjoyable.
Loved this tour! Aga was a fantastic guide! Very knowledgeable and she has an excellent sense of humour and had a good rapport with the group. The tour was extensive and detailed and you get to see areas of the Doge's Palace you would not see otherwise! Really enjoyed this and would highly recommend!
What a magnificent palace. Our tour guide was so much fun and really knew her stuff. I stayed towards the back of the group so I could take my time taking pictures. It was amazing and well worth your time. I went in July 2016
Cannot recommend more highly. This is an amazing tour of an amazine piece of history that most do not know anything about! The skip the line is well worth it, and our guide was wonderful.
Excellent tour! The guide was excellent and made the tour really interesting. I would recommend this tour, and the guide.
We were so glad that we booked this tour as our guide was fun and knowledgeable. There were plenty of steps though!
We were recommended to take this tour by friends and very glad we did - it was excellent! The tour offers insights that you would never get by simply taking a walk through the Doge's palace. Staff were excellent - our guide Allesandra ? was pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful with questions. For future clients it may be useful to alert them when booking that the tour involves many stairs and moving through some confined spaces.
I would only see the Palace with this tour. You see all the interesting bits and get all the background stories.
So much to absorb in one visit I will do it again and recommend same to all.
This was an excellent surprise! We really felt like insiders' and saw things and learned things that we would never have known, both about the Doge's Palace and the history of Venice.
Thought the tour was very informative and liked not having to wait in long line.
the guide was very funny and could understand her english very well. I would do another tour w/ her and w/ viator as they were very well run .
The tour was fantastic. The stories were really exciting and our guide was wonderful.
Well organized, excellent guide and listening devices. Fascinating secret stuff and then free entrance to Palace!
Highly recommend it! the secret itinerary is very interesting and definitely adds to your trip! :
This tour has places in the Doge's palace that you can not see on any other tour. Our guide was knowledgable and willing to answer any questions. It was fun to open a secret door onto people on the regular tour and surprise them.
It was a pleasure walking past the long lines, meeting our tour and experiencing the palace at a relaxed pace. Then we had the rest of the day to explore on our own.
