My family including 4 teenagers will be in Venice June 18-21. I had planned to included the Secret Itineraries tour as part of a several hour private tour I am working on with a guide. However, I just found out that private tour guides can only take a maximum of 5 people on the tour. If I book a tour through Doges Palace the groups are a large as 25. I realize we have to be on a guided tour for the SI tour one way or another.
My question - Should I just book my entire family on one of the guided SI tours offered or is it worth using the private tour guide for my kids and my husband and I will just go on the group guided tour?
I want the kids to have a good experience but don't know if it is worth the hassle to split up.
