The tour was very well organized

Cornelia Enders

The agreed meeting place was to be found punctually. The groups were divided according to languages and booked volume and electronic equipment with a one-sided button headphone was handed over for voice transmission. The waiting times for queuing at the sights were consistently short on the booked weekday in May. It was a very competent leadership of a German-speaking Venetian woman and was led by her in a nice and humorous way, characterized by great knowledge. Our group was very small with 4 persons in the Doge's Palace, which gave us the opportunity to ask more questions and to follow the explanations even better. By the Markusdom joined to our still another 8 headige group to the guidance. Time flew by and we had gained a good and comprehensive overview of the sights. We can only recommend the chosen leadership.

Guide we liked a lot.

We found the leadership very good. The tour guide told a lot about Doge's Palace and St. Mark's Cathedral, it was very beautiful. I'd book it over and over again.

Due to high water, preferential entry into St. Mark's Cathedral was not possible, but the tour guide did everything she could to guide our group to the sights as quickly as possible in these crowds and to de-escalate the tension - very well done :-) Very pleasant way to give a lot of information and also to package ironic remarks nicely. Gladly again...

great

It was a great tour

good

Irritating was "city tour". This remark tells us that besides the Doge's Palace and the Cathedral there is also a small guided tour of the city. Our Guido was very good!

The gondola ride wasn't good. It seemed like boiling off, only lasted about 20 minutes, the route was anything but 'romantic', the singer too far away. The gondola ride was unfortunately not worth the money. Too bad!!!
