Francesca was fantastic nothing was to much trouble- we where travelling with our 83 year old father who has difficulty in walking. She organised a wheel chair and ensured he was with us to enjoy the doges Palace. We found her to be knowledgeable and informative Would highly recommend taking this tour with her I definitely will when I next come to Venice again
This tour is not to be missed ! Best described as a living museum, Francesca really made it come alive. She had such wonderful insights that made the history so very interesting. We're not normally museum people, but this was 3 hours that had us enthralled. Highly recommended.

This is fantastic tour as you see parts of the Doges Palace not seen on the standard ticket and on a timed entry you have the rooms to yourself! Francesca is a brilliant guide. As a qualified historian she brings everything to life. Her English is perfect and she talks around the subject and answer all your questions. I've been with other guides who can only keep to a prescribed script - not Francesca. She told us so much about Casanova that my daughter is now inspired to find out even more!

Francesca was very knowledgeable about the Doges Palace. Highly recommend the tour especially if you are a history buff. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Francesca and also learned a lot about the secrets of the palace.

Felt very lucky for our group to be in the hands of such an experienced guide as Franchesca! She was very attentive to our interests and we packed a lot of experiences into the day. We had a rather rainy fall day but thanks to her expert knowledge of the city we barely noticed the weather Unfortunately we just ran out of time to see everything so we will just have to come back! Thank you again

This is a wonderful tour with a great guide. Very informative. She was very interesting and was able to hold the attention of my 17 year old son the whole time. I would recommend this tour with this guide. Great last morning in Venice

Francesca is an amazing guide!!! She really brought the Doge's Palace to life. Her knowledge is incredible and we absolutely loved the secret parts of the palace.
This was a fabulous tour! Francesca has in depth knowledge of history and art and a deep passion for her work which she generously shared with us. Our family of 4 including two teenagers were enthralled with Francesca's commentary. We learnt so much and thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the secret Doge's palace. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Venice.

If you want a tour guide with boundless amounts of energy, brining history to life and describing it so clearly you'll believe you are there, then this is the guide for you. When she finally left I felt I knew the Doges palace as if I had been born there. Five stars is not really enough.
