Nico was a well informed, well spoken, and entertaining tour guide. Although the tour was long, it was so interesting that we could have stayed longer. Nico kept our interest with his tales of Casanova, and his descriptions transported us in time to the days of long ago. I highly recommend this tour!

Nico, our guide, made the Doges tour come alive with his humor, historical knowledge and enthusiasm.

Really enjoyed this tour. Was super cool to see the behind the scenes and tour guide was interesting and fun. Would recommend.

Our guide was keen to ensure we understood the history and particulars of what we were seeing, which added to our understanding and appreciation. I would highly recommend this tour.

We loved this experience! Our guide, Ellena, was most informative and shared interesting insights into the life of a Venetian and the history of Venice. The secret tour was great, showing the behind the scenes and secret passageways of the Doge’s Palace. Would highly recommend!

My husband and I took this tour at the end of July. The history of the Palace and the governance of Venice in days past was very fascinating. Our guide, Mosé, was informative and animated -- he knew the story of the Doge's Palace inside and out and was very enthusiastic in explaining it. He also welcomed questions (in my experience not all tour guides do). The time flew by on this tour - it certainly didn't seem to last 3 hours. Highly recommend.

“Matt” — our tour guide— he was great; very knowledgeable and very passionate about his city and his job.

Nico was a great guide and very knowledgeable.

We would highly recommend this tour. Our tour leader Lole was the best tour guide we have had so far. Even my teens really liked it. She was very engaging and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed the areas of the Doge palace including the prisons and Casanova’s cell that are not open to the general public.

Marie-Terese was amazing! She was knowledgeable and fun and we truly enjoyed having her as a guide.
