This was an amazing tour. Although we had visited Venice previously had never actually toured the Doge's Palace. The guide was excellent and provided a vivid interpretation of the history. He was an excellent speaker and kept the audience motivated with his stories and explanations.
Unlike my other Italian tours, our guide was a local - born and lived in Venice all her life. She knew the architecture, the art, the political and social history of this important building. For me, just seeing Tintoretto's enormous Paradis in the biggest single room in Europe was worth the admission.
Definitely the best way to do this tour.
Excellent tour fully recommended. Really enjoyed the morning trip with an excellent guide.
The Palace was magnificent and the skip the line tour well worth the cost and the early start 9 am. The Guide was very knowledgeable and really brought the history of the palace to light. Firstly she gave a potted history of Venice through the ages which really put everything that we would see later in perspective. The tour was extremely informative and delivered in a comprehensive but light hearted manner that made it an experience not to miss. Definitely worth fitting into a trip to Venice.

The best guide we have ever had in over 30 tours. She was highly knowledgeable, but more importantly, she emphasized the highlights and kept referring back to important items to bring us forward in time.
Another great trip arranged through Viator, Cannot speak highly enough of them. Tour was very interesting and the guide was very passionate about it all , A very thorough guide who really knew her stuff. Would recommend this tour.
Great tour. Our tour guide was great -- VERY knowledgeable and very animated. I was much impressed with the Doge's Palace, as well as going over and thru the Bridge of Sighs which was under renovation last time I visited Venice - 6 years ago.
This tour was great. The guide was knowledgeable and relayed the information in an interesting way. We saw a lot and learned many interesting facts and stories about the Doge's Palace and it's inhabitants.
