As usual, our Viator tour guide led us on a great walk in Venice history through the square to the Doge's Palace and St. Mark's Basilica. Without a doubt, one of the highlights of our three-week Italian vacation. Actually, ALL of our Viator tour guides were awesome!

Elisabetta was wonderful and gave us so much information. I learned so much!!! It was wonderful to avoid the long line at St Mark's Basilica as we went right in. The whole experience was worth the price and it was nice because it was a small group which I always prefer. Will for sure recommend not only this tour but Viator as well.

Wow! What a wealth of knowledge Francesca shared with us! Her delivery was so pleasant and easy to understand.
I wish we had had her when we visited the Frari church on our own!

The tour guide was excellent - very knowledgeable and a good communicator. We were lucky and only had 9 in the group which made it a much nicer and more personal experience.

The tour was excellent. Elizabetta shared her love of Venice with us and her considerable knowledge of her history. The tour moves to to a bird's eye view of the Piazza and the four horses through to the magnificent Doge's Palace, prisons and bridge. This tour is well worth taking.

Loved this tour! Doge's Palace was so much more than I imagined. Our guide Marco was funny and provided us with lots of information. There were 14 people in our group and we were provided headsets.
