Absolutely amazing - well worth doing if you can. Nearly 2 hours with an amazing guide in a small group seeing things not normally seen with groups through the day. Incredible history.

One of the best tours we went on.
Amazing tour - the night time tour is the best way to see the Basilica. Our guide Francesca was lively and engaging, and opinionated! We really enjoyed her presentation of the church. The meeting point was easily found, and we had a small group about 10 people.
Our guide was excellent and open to questions. The tour was a plus without all the tourists and the lighting of St. Mark's at night was special.
A must do!!! one of the best tour i've ever taken!! You get to see a lot more with less crowd. It was a more personal tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and charming as well. Totally enjoy it!
Our tour of Doges Palace started at 5.15pm and we were treated to an amazing building, frescos and paintings while our guide told the history of Venice and the many battles fought. Some of the ceilings were spectacular. Our guide was very knowledgeable and it was a very good, easy history lesson. After a tea break of 40 minutes we started our tour of St Marks Bascillica. She explained the frescos above the arches before we went into the gallery and along the arched corridor with the golden ceilings with pictures from the Old Testament. Then we entered the astonishing Cathedral itself. The frescos and art on the ceilings is amazing too. The golden alter swung around and we were able to see the sculptures up close. Amazing tour. Would definitely like to do it again.
An amazing tour and highly recommend. It was really great to be there after hours and not fight the crowds, but we were able to visit areas that are off limits during the daytime hours.
This was a fabulous experience. Our guide was amazing and his passion was contagious. We loved every minute!
An incredible tour. I would take this one again, as spectacular as it was. Bravo to Walks of Italy for this superb tour. I sincerely regret I didn't write down the name of our tour guide, a female, who really made this tour spectacular. Too many superlatives for you, the reader? But let me tell you we sat in the Basilica pews with all, but a small number of lights turned off. Music started playing and one by one the lights were turned on, revealing sparkling, shiny, gold-ground mosaics everywhere. The effect was transforming. Our tour guide was a font of knowledge and details of this awesome Basilica. On our walk around, we saw the incredible Pala d'Oro, the Golden Pall. It is a panel of gold decorated with precious gems, including over 1,900 diamonds. The bones of St. Mark were found in the building at the end of the 11th Century and placed in a sarcophagus in the Basilica. This tour deserves all 5 stars and the visitor would be mistaken to skip it.
