Tour was good. Did it as a self guided tour. Missed the group because we could not find the meeting location. A map showing the meeting place would be helpful because it is outside of the Piazza where all the others groups are meeting. The royal garden is closed due to

Dear Client, Thank you for your review and recommendation - we appreciate your comments. Tours are operated directly by our company, Viator is one of the resellers (tours can be booked also directly with us). I am sorry to read you missed the first tour including Doges Palace - our directions are pretty specific and from what I can see also Viator vouchers provide detailed info on the location. Did you have the voucher with you? Our tour meets at the entrance to the Royal Garden (Gardini Reali) - our meeting point assistant has a sign with our company's logo and tour name on it. We meet at the entrance, we do not enter the garden so any maintenance works being carried inside are in this case irrelevant. Except for Sundays our office is open from 8.30 am so if you have any trouble locating the place you can give us a call and we will try to do our best to direct you to the correct location. The Garden is located just 50 m from St Mark's square. there is one big entrance gate and this is where we meet, right next to it. I am happy you managed to join the remaining two tours - if you would let us know the guide's name I will certainly forward your kind comment to her/him. Thank you for joining our tours. Kind regards, Aleksandra Sales Dept

This tour was very educational where we learned a lot about the history of the Doge Palace and St. Mark's Basilica. Pictures were allowed within the Palace but were not allowed in the Basilica. Both are beautiful to look at and well worth the money. Our tour guide was very
