What people are saying about Venice

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.

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.

Would have preferred more about the buildings

Very knowledgeable and interesting guide. Most of the tour was focused on the ceiling frescoes so I had a sore neck by the end. Would have liked a bit more info on the history of the buildings but I. The limited time, she did a good job!

Excellent guide, great delivery mixing the facts with a little humour!

The Doge’s Palace is very dark and repetitive. So if your on a time limited day trip, you may be better served by giving it a miss and throwing in a boat trip or two. As let’s face it it’s the best way to experience Venice!

Excellent, well organized, Eddy the guide was espectacular

Excellent tour for a day in Venice. Eddy the tour guide was espectacular, experienced, perfect english and spanish. Definitely Recommend it! Just FYI, taxis in Milan at night are hard to get, plan accordingly.
