My wife, son & I had the best tour experience we could have imagined. Gianni met us right on time and started things off with a great, quick history lesson of Venice. We then toured St. Mark's Basilica where Gianni shared a ton of interesting information. After a quick rest outside of Doge's Palace, we went in for one of the most stunning experiences of our 2 week trip around Italy. Because we took our time (almost three hours), Gianni arranged for our gondola ride to happen a little later. Before we parted ways, he took us to the gondola stand to make sure we didn't get lost, then found us a fantastic restaurant close by to rest our feet and grab a quick lunch. The gondola ride was very nice and relaxing. Grazie mille, Gianni! Hai reso il nostro viaggio a Venezia ancora più speciale.
The Doges palace was larger and more impressive in real life than expected. St.Marks was closed on the ground floor due to flood damage from last November, but the interior could be viewed well from the upper balcony. The tour guide Monica was excellent, very clear, knowledgeable and considerate. It is worth booking a small tour to skip the ticket queues, as everyone still has to queue for security checks as well. We were also offered a free admission into a glass factory nearby at the end of the tour which was great.
Great experience. Very knowledgeable and engaging Guide. We were a small group of 6 so felt very personal. Seamless and quick entry to all sites. Would highly recommend.
Our guide, Stefania, was excellent. The Doge's Palace is not to be missed and having her guide us through it made so much richer!
Amazing experience and the guide was very helpful. Totally recommend this if you want to learn all about the city.
