Good, quick overview tour of the Doge Palace, Bridge of Sighs, and Dungeons. We got a late start due to another tour guest being very late.. but guide got everyone on track and off we went. Guide did a good job highlighting the most important spots and stories as well as points of interest quickly and with humor… (it would have been helpful to have read up in advance). Tour is only 1 1/2 hr which is very quick.. Definitely worth the $$ for skip the line access and informative tour.

The guide was great, although we waited over an hour for it to start. Nevertheless, the tour ended at the scheduled time. So the organization gets 0 points.

Our guide was a super nice Ventian woman who made it clear that she had a huge love for the city. She had a lot of background information about the city in general as well as the history and especially the art of the palace, which made us very happy. We had a lot of fun on the tour and brought us closer to the history, especially through the interesting stories of our guide. Only at the beginning it was a bit disorganized because we first had to go to the organizer's office, from there a guide took us to the next one so that we could get the tickets and then this guide in turn dropped us off at our "final stop". Of course, the tickets have to be arranged and the different languages have to be served, but it was a bit hectic.
