What People Are Saying About Venice

An excellent way to see this amazing place without queuing.

I strongly recommend this tour. On the day we did it the general queue was very long and if we had had to stand in line it would have taken up a lot of our valuable time in Venice. It all worked perfectly and the guide was very knowledgable and informative. The Bascilica is just breathtaking! Well worth seeing. I recommend this tour.

Very qualified guide and recommended tour

We really enjoyed our stay in Venice and especially the guided tour that gave us a bright overview of the history of the city.
Doge's Palace & St. Mark's 3.5-Hour Tour Reviewed by un client GetYourGuide, 10/20/2016

Very informative tour and our guide was charming and entertaining

So interesting to view the Doge Palace and the Basilica. Having an informed and passionate guide made the experience even better.

I am a Venetian myself, but I learnt many things I didn't know

I booked this activity even if I am from Venice because I had three foreign friends with me on their first visit to the city, and I know how long it may take to get inside the Basilica. It was the right choice, considering that 15 minutes before the start time, it started raining as if it was one of those sudden tropical showers. So it was really nice that we didn't have to wait in line for hours under the rain. The guy at the reception was really friendly and helpful, and the girl who guided us through the tour (such a pity that I cannot remember her name) shall be canonized and have her picture hang up next to St. Mark's. We had a very badly behaved family in our group, with kids (and adults) running in every direction (included no-trespass areas) and even trying to steal the radio receivers; but our guide showed a perseverance and patience that I don't think I would have in the same situation. A big Brava to her and to all the staff.
Venice: St. Mark’s Basilica & Cloister of St. Apollonia Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer, 09/23/2016

Interesting, informative and fun ( avoiding much of the queues )

As a first time visitor to Venice ( and hopefully not the last ) this tour proved to be a great way to avoid much but not all of the queuing and chaotic crowds around the Doge's Palace and St Mark's Basilica. The guide was interesting,informative and at times fun. Advertised as a 2 hour tour it actually was more like 3 hours but the time flew as there was so much to see and take in. The clarity of the audio system at times could have been better ( may be clearer if you used your own headphones ) but apart from that we had a great tour.
