The tour group picked the WORST meeting spot for this tour. We arrived early, but there were about 1,000 other people meeting in the same spot for other tours, and our two "hosts" were more interested in looking cute, and they were not holding up their sign! So it took us a while to find them. We tried to call the number provided, and the operator was no help, and eventually hung up on us. So we just kept walking around asking each group for our tour and we eventually found them about 1 minute before they were taking off, and they were angry at us for being late!?!

Our actual tour guide was knowledgeable, but he was super drab & boring. He talked in monotones the entire time, like he was reading from a book. He did not engage the group at all. He just kept droning on and on.

The Tour was great. You ideally do not need a guide as this can be more expensive. The trick is to walk along with the other guides and listen. Although there have a description in each room/area. You can also hire a audio guide which provides all the History. Make sure you take an ID to hire. A must place to visit in St Marks Square. Would certainly recommend booking online before you travel as the queues can be quite long especially if travelling during the hot summer days.

At the start, you need to join a long queue (aka an 80 person bun fight) to be given a token so you can join another long queue to be given a head set. After this, you wait for the guide depending on the language of your tour. Then you are taken to the entrance of the Doge's Palace. The 'skip the line' queues were ridiculously long so we had a long wait to enter the palace. Once in, anyone with a backpack had to go and check it in.Therefore, although we'd been instructed to be at the meeting point at 10:30, we actually began our tour at 11:25! Having said that, the guide still provided us with a one hour tour, but bear this in mind if you are restricted for time. The tour is satisfactory, with interesting information provided about the history, art and interiors which was well delivered by the guide. I'm not convinced we learned much more than if we'd picked up a leaflet and wandered around on our own - but I was under the impression (maybe incorrectly?) that a tour is the only way to experience walking across the Bridge of Sighs.
