Quick entrance

It’s a great way to skip the line and get access to the tour, our guide, Roberta, was friendly but I do feel she could have explained more and given more background information about Venice and the Doge, as certain information she only shared when asked, there was enough time to give more information and therefore the visit more worthwhile.

Fantastic experience

★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ 4-Excellent

Overall it was easy to book and great that everything was sorted when we got there. The two main reasons I was disappointed was: The trip was only 25 minutes long instead of the 30 minutes advertised and it would have been cheaper for four of us to hire one off the street exclusively for €80 rather than the €30 each we paid - which meant me had to share with another couple too.

She was knowledgeable, interesting and fun. She was also passionate about her city.
