The tour started rather badly, it was chaos because there were so many people and not enough ear pieces. I rolled my eyes and braced myself for misery. Instead, the guide was exceptional. We were escorted to the central nave to sit and listen to her stories whilst the other visitors wandered around the perimeter in a timed line, looking bemused. She was funny, incredibly knowledgeable, and some of things she told us I am still telling others to this day. If you do one thing in Venice book this tour!
