Our party loved this tour! Martina was a wonderful guide, very professional with excellent knowledge and stories. Thank you!

We had an amazing tour. I guide was very knowledgeable and funny! Getting to go in after hours made the whole experience special.

Walks was very accommodating when I was the only one of our group of 14 who wanted to do both tours. I was able to do the Doge's Palace with a fantastic Guide and then transfer into the same tour as the others for the Saint Mark's Basilica tour. However, this proved to be a bit unfortunate. The Guide I had for the Doge's Palace was great, but the Guide that we all had for the Basilica was not very good at all. I'm sure that my original Doge's Palace Guide could have provided a wonderful experience for us, but, unfortunately, because of the quality of the Basilica Guide, the tour that the 14 of us got was nowhere near worth the money that we spent. If you get a good Guide, then this is a combined tour that I would easily recommend. If you get a bad Guide, then it is a waste of money.

Martina was so knowledgeable and wonderful explaining everything on the tour. She was detailed and engaging and was able to answer every question that was asked. The sites after dark itself was so interesting and nice to explore without the crowds. Highly recommend.

This after-hours tour of Doge's Palace and St. Mark's is truly special! Not only are you avoiding the crowds and heat, but you also have the opportunity to visit areas typically not open to the general public. The light show featuring St. Mark's beautiful gold mosaic ceiling is not to be missed. Most important, our tour guide Romy was phenomenal! She is incredibly knowledgeable and engaging, and she even kept my teen son's attention for the entire time, something which isn't an easy task.

This after hours tour of Doge's Palace and St. Mark's was such a great find! The tour guide was so knowledgeable and amazed us with the detail of her tour. Being allowed to go to Doge's Palace after hours was so enjoyable and allowed us full access to each room and location. Walking through the Bridge of Sighs was also a fun experience. However, nothing prepared me for the amazing experience of being in St. Mark's after hours, in the dark and with so few other visitors. They did a great job of making a spectacular place even more so with the introduction to the sanctuary. Our guide's obvious love of Venice as a multi-generation native added so much to our tour. I would highly recommend this tour and believe it was a great value for a once in a lifetime experience.

Iona was absolutely amazing! Thank you for such a beautiful experience of your city. Stunning!

Our guide Moses was incredible! His depth of knowledge and the way that he expressed and covered it was truly inspiring. He's made me want to study the history of Venice. Thank you so much Moses

This was a truly memorable experience. The tour brought us through the Doge’s Palace and the Basilica with just a handful of other tourists. Such a peaceful and enjoyable way to see these amazing historical sites.

Our tour guide was excellent and it was very helpful having a little amplifier with headphones to hear the tour guide. She was very knowledgeable and provided us with very interesting facts about St. Marks Cathedrall in Venice.
