Good Tour but could be better
Odyssey48537127639

In general the tour was pretty good and the guide was good, but not great. However, there were some annoying moments. The tour was supposed to be from 12 Noon to 1 pm. We were told to meet no later than 11:45. However, they were disorganized and the splitting into groups and getting the receivers for the tour took forever. Most annoying of all was that after we were completely ready to enter the Basilica, the guide said that people with backpacks had to leave them in lockers about 150 meters away. I just can’t understand why that couldn’t have been done before 12 Noon. Instead we all had to wait for the 3-4 people who had to check backpacks. So the tour actually started at 1220. So we paid for a one hour tour but in reality the tour was only 40 minutes.

dear guest, we are sorry for your inconvenient but is you look on your voucher in the notes you can see that for this tour backbags are not allowed for security reason • Please be at the meeting point 15 min before the departure time; • Knees and shoulders MUST be covered in the Saint Mark's Basilica; • Backpacks and large bags are NOT allowed inside the Basilica and the Doge's Palace; • Parents will need to have an ID for the children on the date of travel to prove they are under 6; • Not wheelchair accessible; • On very few occasions Saint Mark's Basilica may be closed due to religious ceremonies, public holidays, private events or high water and we are not always informed in advance; • From the 1st of November to the 31st of March there is no skip-the-line entrance to the Basilica; If clients arrive with backbags the guide needs to stop the group for the deposit and that's the reason why the tour was delayed best regards maria rosa

We greatly enjoyed our visit and were happy to skip the line. The information was well presented and we had enough time to really see everything we wanted to see. It was quite warm that day and warm inside the building, but that was none's fault.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your good feedback. As we are in high season in Venice arranging tours with skip the line tickets is indeed strongly recommended in order to avoid the long lines to access the sights. We are pleased to see that you had a nice experience with us and we look forward in seeing you again. Kind regards, Venice Events Team.

One of the best tours I've ever done.

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!
