Enjoyable and Thorough

Don’t waste your time!!

Horrible tour guide. I thought they had higher standards for their guides. Rude, hard to understand and didn’t seem to care much about making it a good experience for the group. Waste of money!

The tour Guide was fun and with a lot of knowledge. You can skip the line and enjoy scenery. Both the San mark church and dodge palace are worth visiting
Tall tales of Venice with Raphael
, Aug 2021
We absolutely enjoyed the tour with Raphael. He should be in the movies. Both the Doge and basilica. He had great perspectives we enjoyed on the historical and theological significance of Venice. Multo bene

Worth every penny!

The Doges palace should NOT be missed! It is spectacular and being able to skip the line was great. The tour guide was wonderful and helped us to understand what we were seeing.
Well done tour
, Jul 2021
The guide was excellent; very knowledgeable of Venice and the history behind it. The skip the line at the Doge's palace was valuable, but recent COVID restrictions made the skip line line impossible for St. Mark's Basilica (for all tour guides in town). Still, the wait to get into the Basilica was not long, and felt even shorter as our guide continue to provide us information during the wait. I would book again if I return to Venice.
