Our guide was very informative and knowledgeable, and made the visit a really pleasurable one. The Doges palace is a fantastic piece of architecture and well worth a look at, the history and stories told by our guide about the palace and adjoining prison increased the enjoyment. I would highly recommend this trip.

Our guide Elisabetta was delightful. She was very knowledgeable about the history of Venice and the palace. It was very easy to focus on the information because of her excellent presentation with maps, pictures and humor. She wove everything together with interesting facts about people and culture and time just flew by. The palace itself was grandiose and a true representation of the spirit and glory of Venice. We were also only 7 people and the 4h30 time slot had the advantage of less people in the building. The audio system worked perfectly and made it easy to understand Elisabetta from a distance. We highly recommend a tour with Elisabetta.
