On your site you have the disclosure of Doge's Palace and Doge's Palace. I bought both, one for 3/10 and one for 4/10 and only realized on the day that it was the same. Unable to cancel, I lost tickets. I suggest you change and leave a single name, not to confuse the tourist. Is there anything you can do in my case?

Great tour. The guide was very informative and pleasant.

Excellent tour. The guide was very informative and knew her history and answered all questions with ease. She was also very pleasant and likeable. The only criticism at the start is the TOUR sign was put up a little late so we were a little anxious until we found the right tour group.

Der Treffpunkt war gut zu finden und der Ansprechpartner mit einbem Schild Tour gut zu indetifizieren. Die Führung war in einer kleinen Gruppe und damit angenehm. Der Guide hat uns dann in der letzten halben Stunde aber ziemlich schnell durch den Dogenpalast geführt. Der Guide war gut verständlich durch die Kopfhörer, die zur Verfügung gestekkt worden sind.
