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.
Great tour. Very interesting to see the secret rooms, including the upstairs prisons, and Casanova's room and his escape! And it was cool to end the tour coming out of a hidden cupboard where you rejoin the normal walk on your own tour.
One of the best tours we did in Italy. We learnt so much about the history of Venice and how it was administered. A very interesting and informative tour and one I would recommend to everyone
Although expensive was a fantastic tour! Was recommended by a friend who went a few weeks ago. It was really interesting and nice to get away from the crowds as we went to parts of the Palace that no one else had access too. Learnt the story of Casanova's stay and escape from the prison. Highly recommend.
Great tour - really interesting and skipping the queue in such a busy place was really wonderful. The guide was very informative, it was terrific.
An excellent tour providing an interesting insight into the history and workings of the Doge's Palace. Our guide was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. There are lots of stairs to climb so recommended only for those who are able?
We received the e voucher straight away, giving us all the details of the excersion.We arrived just before the trip and were greeted straight away. The tour started on time and was well worth doing.
Great guide and tour. Would recommend. Triple the price the museum offers, but we couldn and #39;t get an English speaking guide. Would suggest other tourists try to book on the museum Venice website and this is a good backup if you don and #39;t mind paying.
We really enjoyed this trip. Getting to see the prisons in the cellar and attic were amazing... Be warned there are a lot of steps. Loved the palace as well, but as we were left to our own devices we kept getting lost!
Really enjoyed the Doge's Palace. The tour was the perfect length and was able to see the entire building. Only complaint was that our guide's English wasn't ideal for a tour guide, but she was patient and wanted to make sure we understood her content.
