What To Expect

Explore two of Venice's most beautiful and historical landmarks in one day with this guided tour of Doge's Palace and Saint Mark's Basilica. Start with a tour of Doge's Palace at Palazzo Ducale - the pinnacle of Venetian political power, and a symbol of the city's wealth and status, where once, centuries ago, the Duke and his Council controlled the fate of the entire city of Venice. Together with a knowledgable tour guide, walk in to find rooms plastered and packed with hundreds of masterpieces including "Il Paradiso" by Tintoretto, the world's longest canvas painting. Learn about the history and context of the palace as your guide takes you through the hallowed halls and back to the European Middle Ages. Find yourself mesmerized by the rich details of the gold staircase, and the art that decorates the entire building. Next stop: the notorious Bridge of Sighs - its name a reference to the prisoners that entered the Venetian prisons, including the legendary Giacomo Casanova. The tour ends with a guided tour of Saint Mark's Basilica, a masterpiece of Byzantine art and architecture. Sit on its marble inlays and admire its beautiful gold mosaics while your guide tells you about the history of the ancient basilica. While you're there, don't forget to drop by the Treasury, where religious art works collected from all over the world are located. Finally, feast your eyes on the the beloved Pala d'Oro, one of Venice's most prized possessions, made up of thousands of gems and precious stones - a fitting end to a tour of two of Venice's most elaborate and beautiful landmarks.

    非常糟糕的經驗!電子憑證上寫集合時間10:45 AM,集合地點:聖馬可波羅廣場鐘樓下的Yex購票中心。但聖馬可廣場的鐘樓一般指的是比較高的Campanile di San Marco,廣場另一邊有一個比較矮的“鐘塔” Torre dell' Orologiio,但是Yex購票中心其實是在"鐘塔“下不是鐘樓,會被誤導!11/6當天我就因為被誤導耽誤了一下時間,雖然仍在10:45到了YEX購票中心,卻不見任何導遊,等了半小多不知所措後,只好打國際電話回台灣的客服。但是客服中心的電話大概打五通才會接通一次!而且客服電話是妳已經打進去轉接中,但忙線他會直接終止通話,所以打了好幾通才接通第一個客服人員!結果客服竟然要我自己打給威尼斯當地的tour供應商,我在國外人生地不熟耶!到底要客服幹什麼?當下雖然生氣,但為了解決問題就打過去,結果當地供應商的電話根本已經停用了!語音說"this number is no longer available",傻眼!只好再打了國際電話回台灣客服,接通後客服說幫我查詢,結果在等待的當中電話竟然自己斷了!又生氣又挫折的當下,只好繼續打!終於在不知道花了多少錢的國際電話後,接通了,這次客服總算給了較明確的答案,說可以幫我試著改到隔天,但是也是要用email回 (不知道為什麼他們不肯電話回覆,萬一我沒網路不是就看不到了?)。當下也只好接受並等待,光處理這件事已經花了一個小時,旅遊的好心情全被破壞了。當天下午有接到email說幫我改到隔天11/7,有了前一天的經驗,我們提早10:25就到集合點,結果等到10:40才有拿著非常不明顯Tour牌子的導遊出現(集合點人很多,但是導遊既沒有穿明顯衣服,拿的tour牌子也很不起眼),當天因為潮水太高所有行程都被取消了。因前一天已經打太多國際電話了,我寫了email給Klook客服詢問退費,結果11/8發的email完全沒回應,11/12回國後再發,到今天11/14一樣沒回,只好硬著頭皮再試著打客服,打了8通終於接通,跟他說明了我的問題,結果還沒講完電話再度斷線,為什麼客服電話這麼難打,接通又這麼容易斷線?至此我已身心俱疲,充滿挫折!斷線後客服有回email說會幫我詢問退費,不知道結果會如何,但經過這次經驗我以後不敢再使用Klook,這是我第一次應該也是最後一次使用了!
