Both sites are absolutely incredible! Basilica is a must see

My sister and I were expecting good things from this tour, but it was far far better than that! We easily found the meeting place. Everyone gets a headphone set so you can always hear your guide, and ours was called Rosanna. She was so lovely, upbeat, friendly, and funny. We did the Basilica first and we were lucky to be in there when it was illuminated and it was absolutely beautiful (it is usually only illuminated for mass and other than that for one hour a day). The Basilica also hosts an amazing artwork entirely made of gold and just under 2,000 jewels. This was information provided by Rosanna, and a lot of what made this tour good was all the facts she told us. It would not have been half as amazing without context. Then we did the Doges Palace where, as part of this tour, you actually walk inside and along the Bridge of Sighs, which we weren't expecting! Also the Doges Palace has the largest canvas artwork in the world, which was astounding to see. Two very happy customers!

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.
