very good trip
Great tour. Our guide, Catarina, was very knowledgeable and informative. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to have a quick overview of Venice, and more details and insight into the Doge's Palace and St. Mark's Basilica.
Good tour, no time built in for breaks - so be prepared. Also, if you don't keep up, you can lose the audio for our tour guide and miss out on some of the information.
Guide provided a bit too much detail without really brining what we saw to life. Overall a good value.
Wonderfully done--the skip the line alone made it worth it, but the guide was very well informed and told great stories.
Excellent tour guide - the four hours flew by, I would highly recommend!
