No queue and interesting guide.
Helen_J
, Aug 2022
Guide was informative and funny. Really well organised and worth not standing in queue in baking sunshine. Shoulders must be covered and legs above knees to go in basilica . I think these should be made clearer in info sent as a priority. It probably is mentioned but since it is make or break for entry it really needs a big highlight. Our guide and group were happy to wait for a lady to buy a scarf from a stall but a bigger group or different guide might not.

OK

The church is beautiful, and very busy. We waited for at least 30-45 minutes for our guide arrive then we waited in another line to get into the church, which for skip the line tickets I'm not sure how much time it really saved us. Then there were enough people in the group (probably about 15) that he was often talking about something that we couldn't see yet. Our guide was also hard to understand with his accent and he spoke softly. We are glad we got to see the church but not sure I would pay for this tour if we went again.

Email said the ticket would show the meeting place. Ticket said “Skip the Line” so we met at the skip the line entrance. Guide was not there. They never contacted us. So we were unable to tour. I requested a refund and they told us we were late which was not true.

The Basilica experience and sights were much more than I expected. Paying the extra to skip the line and stay longer on a guided tour was worth it.

Good to skip the line as the queue was long. Tour rushed, I would have liked to see more. It was only after the tour I realised how much we had missed. An hour is not long enough.

The history given by the guide, Marco. His humour and joy fullness. A few more fetwiks would be a must. I would have liked to see the gold room, ut it was sold out.

Very bad organisation
Michele_W

There was no one waiting to find us. Your started without us despite us asking everyone who looked like a guide if we were on their list. The guide was not clear and forgot so much of the information. Would never use this company again.

Well organised tour

The tour was perfectly organised. We had a tour in English with a tourguide who could vividly tell the history regarding the San Marco's Basilic. We enjoyed it very much. Worth the money and great to skip the line.
