We went on the Doge's Palace tour with the Roman Guy and it was excellent. The guide was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. The guide was considerate when we fell behind a few times she slowed to tour so we could catch-up..

Skipping the line in and of itself is worth the money! But Chiara was a great guide also. Covered A LOT in 2 hours. Tour was very informative on history and art and well presented. Despite the crowds, the Doges Palace is a MUST SEE in Venice.

We booked our tour with Avventure Bellissime and it was very good. Christina was very knowledgeable with an easy-going approach - a visit to the Doge Palace that was loaded with information but unhurried and relaxed.

The tour of Doge's Palace seemed to focus more on the art within the Palace. I was hoping to learn a little more about the history.

This was a great short tour of Doge's palace! We got a lot of information on the political, art and architectural history of Venice while we toured the palace. We really liked having a small group tour!

The Palace was gorgeous. Let me start by saying we are NOT fans of history; much prefer scenery so that will explain our review. The guide for our tour was pleasant and knowledgeable but there was too much history for us, LOTS of standing around listening (not good for someone with 2 knee replacements) and, since it was very hot and humid, it was stifling to the point I felt ill and just wanted out. We enjoyed visiting the Palace itself after the tour and didn’t feel we saw enough worthwhile areas to warrant the Secret Itineraries tour.

The Secret Itineraries tour was a lot of fun. You get to visit much more of the palaces dungeons, including Casanova's cells, as well as some of the behind-the-scene offices of the important political bodies of the Venetian republic. Our tour guide (English language tour) was excellent and added greatly to our enjoyment of the tour. Once the tour is finished, you can then go directly into the palace and see all the regular rooms, having not only had a great tour, but skipping the lines.
