Wonderful tour and excellent guide for Doge’s Palace and St Mark’s

The combination of Doge’s Palace and St Mark’s Basilica after hours made for a wonderful tour. It had started cooling off and there crowds had mostly left so we loved it. Our guide Pam was so good - she was very knowledgeable about Venetian history and these two historic places. And she was very charming. I highly recommend this tour. The walking is moderate and there are some stairs but not a lot. And the stairs were more half-flights at a time which made them easy to get past. And the views from Doge’s are magnificent. St Mark’s is breathtaking with the gold ceiling and we practically had the place to ourselves.

Great way to see things in an entertaining efficient way.

These 2 attractions have long lines and cam be overwhelming. Having our English speaking guide made everything much easier and kept us entertained and informed when we did have to wait on the Groups Line for Doges Palace. We learnt things and saw things we would not have seen or known without the guide. Both buildings are glorious in their own way. Guide was very informative but also fun. Recommend this highly on sp many levels.

Quick tour, interesting spent most time confused and queuing.

We arrived confused where to go and spent a lot of the time queuing. The tour was interesting but quick. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about the tour. Would recommend this tour to skip the queues but allow time to find the guide and don’t be scared to ask lots of official looking people questions!

Skip the Line: St. Mark's Basilica Guided Tour Reviewed by

Tour guide was excellent (5 stars) but the tour ran short (4 stars).

We got a late start due to late arriving group members and then waited 25-30 minutes in line (which our guide said was longer than usual.....but he put it to good use by giving us lots of information while we waited). Consequently our tour ended up being abbreviated and we had very little time in the Basilica.

Guide Hazel gave a fantastic Tour in Venice, Doge Palcace, Cathedral

Hazel has a great knowledge about the history of Venice, the history of art and structure of power in the Doge System and the Christian tradition in general and San Marco Cathedral in specific. Fabulous!
