The tour was great. Our tour guide was Rozanna. She's very knowledgeable about Venice's history. She made the explanation fun with her storytelling style. Too bad it was raining.

We were met promptly at our meeting place and divided into appropriate groups, ours was about 15 people so a lovely size. We then went on a walking tour around venice with our very informative and charming guide. You are provided with a headphone pack so you can clearly hear your guide if its noisy around you or you fall back a bit to look at something.
The skip the line access was great and the Doges Palace was absolutely incredible. St Marks basilica is a work of art and the information our guided provided on both venues was outstanding. I thoroughly recommend this tour as you get to see the majority of Venice and its attractions in the one day.
Little tip though is to research the flooding in st marks square according to the time of year you are visiting. Whilst they provide walkways to keep you dry I was just find in wellies.
Great tour. Our guide, Catarina...

Great tour. Our guide, Catarina, was very knowledgeable and informative. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to have a quick overview of Venice, and more details and insight into the Doge's Palace and St. Mark's Basilica.
