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.
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.
We had a great guide for this tour who gave us so much information about the Doge's Palace and the government. Very interesting!
Great tour. Enjoyed the chance to cross the Bridge of Sighs to and from the prison. As with all the other tours, on time and very efficient.
Great tour! Our guide Stefano was amazing and gave us such a good understanding of what we were seeing and the history of Doge's Palace as well as Venice. I highly recommend this tour!
Extremely interesting tour of the palace and the prison - loved hearing about how Venice was governed and the development of the architecture of Venice. I highly recommend this tour.

Great guide. Very informative and didn't feel rushed which a shorter tour would have
Fantastic tour of the Doge's palace. Knowledge tour guide and tour length at 1.5 hours was perfect. The tour takes place early morning whilst the Doge's palace is relatively quiet which is a bonus
This was an incredible tour. The tour guide was beyond knowledgeable. She was interesting, engaging, dynamic and held our attention for the full tour. The palace itself is incredibly breathtaking and I couldn't get enough of the interiors. I would highly recommend taking this tour. Kudos to this tour company for hiring this guide.
Excellent tour with very knowledgeable guide. She also recognised the fact that some of us were no longer teenagers and she made sure that wherever possible there was a place to sit down to both admire the building and listen to her great history of the building and Venice. Highly recommended.
The tour guide was knowledgeable and funny. She really brought the reality what living in Venice through the years was and now, is like. Very interesting tour, beautiful architecture and the details were something to be admired!
The tour guide was amazingggg! She made what could and #39;ve been a boring experience into a blast to the past ! Tying everything that we saw, every art piece, every column and every detail with a story from Venice and #39;s history. Simply, superb.
The guide was very well informed and made the palace come alive with his stories.
An excellent tour and an excellent tour guide. The tour was conducted in superb English with clear explanations of what we were being shown. The audio equipment, which enabled us to hear more clearly in a busy location, worked very well. This two hour tour was not cheap but was good value.
It was wonderful to walk straight in and skip the queue! The guide was really animated and informative. A highlight was going onto the terrace with the bronze horses and watching the little bronze figures striking the clock on the clocktower across the piazza. Highly recommended.
