What people are saying about Venice

Great Guide...cheerful and very informativr

We were in a group of 25 and our guide Francesca started right on time. She was a very knowledgeable lady who passed on information with humor and a smile. It is a long tour with many steps so perhaps not for any one with trouble climbing 300 year old worn staircases! We were very pleased that we took this tour as we would have missed so much if we had guided ourselves. Bypassing the ticket office alone must have saved 45 mins. It was very emotional walking over the bridge of sighs remembering all the prisoners walking to death. Well done Francesca...you made our visit to your lovely city come to life.

Excellent tour-expect a little wait in the queue

The content of this tour is wonderful. Audio guide is thorough and comprehensive. We were a little surprised that the pre-booking does not not allow quicker acces to the Palace. The staff allow chunks of the three queues (no ticket, pre-paid and groups) through in turn to regulate acces to the Palace and no one que is favoured. Having said this once inside the tour is excellent.

Very knowledgeable guide. An interesting tour.

I have no further comment regarding the tour, however, could I suggest that 2 separate tours are listed during the booking process, one with, and one without the tower climb instead of having to tick a check box in the tour description. Needless to say, we fell foul and were not able to climb the tower.

Well timed and organized with extremely knowledgeable guide.

Worth it. The fast pass options are great. Additionally you move along much faster as a group and get to hear about amazing history in any down time. Our guide had a few of our group members go rogue and always handled himself with poise and kept the tour moving as much as possible.

Emanuel was engaging, knowledgeable and pitched the tour perfectly

Excellent guide, gave us a great appreciation of not only the significance of The Basilica and the Doge’s Palace to venice’s History but also what it is like to be a young Venetian growing up in this city which is being dramatically changed by tourism.
