    This tour was full of historical facts we never would have learned if we just did a visit by ourselves. Just a note - we took the tour in mid June and the tour was early in morning, and the Doge's Palace was so HOT, I wish we would have brought travel fans as I felt faint a few times. I would recommend to bring a bottle of water with you.

    A good insight into Venice in a day and our guide Francesca was excellent. We got to see the main sights which included St Marks Basilica, the Doges palace and we had a lovely gondola ride. Great for skip the line as the queues get very long.

    Pleasant and informative, and a much cheaper way of having a gondola ride! There were a lot of people booked in and I initially thought this would be an issue, but we were divided up into smaller groups for the tour, and we were with one other couple on the gondola ride.

    This was amazing and I can’t recommend enough. We were with Stacey, who was laid back, informative and very helpful! The food and drink was delicious and plentiful!

    There is nothing really to see or do in Torcello- I’d recommend finding a tour without that stop included. “Tour” was limited to guide commentary while on the boat between islands. Go to Murano and Burano on your own.

    We booked a guided tour where we were given the Doge Palace Secret Itineraries which took us to places that the normal tour doesn't.

    We were taken as low as the prison cells and high amongst the attic of the palace. All along the way the guide spoke to us through audio headset. She was very personal friendly and of course knowledgeable and the stories (history) your told aides to the tour.

    Lots of walking up and down small stone step hallways. Lots of amazing history to hear.

    After the tour we were allowed access to view the Palace's Grand jewels as well as the rest of the palace.

    Amazing fresco paintings on the high ceiling and walls and original artefacts.

    Great tour.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Gulia! She was friendly, informative and great with our two teenagers. We loved that she is a true Venetian that obviously loves her city. Getting away from the crowds was wonderful and the stop to see the glass bead maker was an added bonus!

    Fantastic way to see both sites. In the Dogges Palace our group was essentially alone in an empty palace. Tour guide was absolutely fantastic. The basilica is much more impressive at night and while there were more groups, it was still less crowded than public tours. Meeting and organization of the tour group was top notch.

    We had a great gondolier! He sang, whistled and pointed out many landmarks. He also took us on quiet canals and answered all of our questions. Very fun, relaxing ride.

    Really nice tour, a nice little break from the hustle and bustle of the crowded streets of Venice. I will say that a lot of time is spent on the boat so be prepared for that. Murano consists of the glassblowing demonstration and visit to the very large, and quite pricey, shop and then we were given the option to go to a church. Burano is beautiful but we only spent about an hour there, long enough for delicious ice cream and a short walk. Worth it, I think. The tour guide was delightful and provided a lot of neat information, as well as a glass of Prosecco. If you are spending several days in Venice I would suggest this tour to see a different side of the city.

    My husband and I didn’t have long in Venice, so we decided to spend one day doing a walking tour and seeing as much of the city as we could. We purchased the full day tour which included St. Marks Square, the Basilica and other points of interest around the city. It ended with a gondola ride through the grand canal before we had lunch on our own. The second half of the tour included the Doges Palace and the prison. Both of the guides were extremely knowledgeable and very interesting. It was fascinating to learn about the city’s rich history and culture. I would recommend this tour to anyone, especially those who don’t have long to spend in Venice.

    Honestly not my best decision to book this tour at 3pm and prior to that walk miles shopping and sightseeing. But that’s what I did— so by the time the tour came up we were hot, sweaty and had tired feet already— I was maybe not so secretively wishing the gondola ride came first, but it didn’t. Our guide was good, it’s just unfortunate that it was so hot, crowded and sticky in the square and around gondolas— the ear pieces worked great so you could hang back in the crowd a little and still hear very well. I really loved hearing about the city’s architectural history (snail tour, water barriers, fresh water accumulation, how the city was built, gondolas etc) and less about who conquered this or that— even though it is important in how Venice came to be. The gondola ride was a family highlight! We throughly have enjoyed it— what a treat!!

    Loved this tour. Holly our guide was fabulous and full of information and tips. Sampled lots of different foods and wines (so we didn’t need dinner) and discovered areas of Venice I haven’t seen before. There were 4 in our party and an additional 4 travellers so a total of 8. Highly recommend this tour!!
