I really loved this tour! Our guide, Lara, was excellent! She was funny, very informative, and we really enjoyed chatting with her! I would definitely do it again!
Delightful tour, set at a nice relaxed pace. Our guide, Sabrina, was great...charming, knowledgable and professional. I highly recommend this tour.
Good, informative tour of the Jewish ghetto with an excellent guide. The food, included with the tour, was interesting
Excellent tour! Would never of toured the Jewish Ghetto otherwise. The Cicchetti and Wine was fabulous as well. Highly recommend this tour.
Franccesca was amazing showing us around the un-known parts of Venice. She is a Venetian, so she knows where to walk around. The bacari that we went to were really cool. That day was raining a lot but it didn't matter because hearing about history and looking at the beautiful buildings made the rainy day enjoyable. City Wonders is a great company, if you can book tours with this company go for it.
Lara was great. Perfecto. Sorry I rated Lara in the Murano tour- mistake the. Tour guide on that tour was difficult to understand. Lara was great.
This tour provides quick and essential tour of Venice.
You can have time to chat with travelers from different regions/countries with glasses of wine and local food.
The tour leader, Lara, is so nice and friendly. You are going to like her!
Great tour not only of some great Wine bars and appetizers, but very informative of Venice off the beaten path. Donata was wonderful.
Beatrice was an excellent tour guide with an answer to all our questions about the area.
Run and informative tour. Three couples were led on a tour of the Jewish Ghetto district. Along the way, we stopped for wine and appetizers in three different bar type places. The guide was informative about the area history as well as the custom of cicchetti and wine. A really pleasant time was had by all
Great evening, highly recommended. Francesca was brilliant and really knew her stuff. Fabulous food and drink too.
This tour was so fun! Just the right mix of info about Venice and relaxing drinks and snacks. A good time was had by all!
We thoroughly enjoyed this informative and relaxed tour. Lara our guide was knowledgable and affable, taking time to ensure everyone was comfortable and enjoying themselves. Each of the 3 bars we visited was different and presented a different type of Cecchitti and wine for us to taste and we were satisfied with the amount of food. Hearing the fascinating history of the Ghetto helped explain an important part of Venetian history and yet was not a heavy history tour. Highly recommend this tour!
This was so much fun. Small group and enjoyed the wine tour and the Jewish ghetto. My only regret was not doing it earlier in the trip so we could of went back to some of these bars. The tour was interesting and point out some interested items in the area. Especially the place where you can take your empty bottle and the will fill it up with wine.
tour very informative drink food a walk and nice company this is a must we had Francesca as our guide who was brilliant.
Our guide, Chiara, was very knowledgeable about the area. The food and wine good. It is a good way to meet people from other countries.
We really enjoyed our Cicchetti and Wine Tour of Venice's Jewish Ghetto. Lara was very personable and knowledgeable and did a great job. We enjoyed that the tour wasn't rushed and that we were able to enjoy our time not only learning about the Jewish Ghetto but meeting and visiting with others on the tour as we enjoyed our visits to the three wine bars. We recommended this trip to other friends who will be visiting Venice!
This was a terrific tour. The guide was really passionate about her tour. We enjoyed each location enjoyed the tastings and enjoyed the wine. We walked through the Jewish Ghetto which was very interesting and again the guide was very passionate about the history.
My boyfriend and I got into Venice from New York at 11:30am on a Friday, mid-September. This was the first time for both of us in Venice and this was the first tour we took. We thought it would be a good idea in order to learn about the city, explore the Jewish Ghetto, and taste some local cicchetti and wine. It turned out not to be a good idea, but a fantastic idea!!!
Lara was our tour guise and she was really great. She is very friendly, personable, engaging and has a vast fund of knowledge. She's from Venice at each place we stopped, she'd give us the local perspective on things. She was very candid and truthful in her answers to all of our questions about the city and what it's like to live in Venice compared to where we all live. We had a great group of 8 2 ppl from South Africa, 2 from Australia, and 4 of us from the USA which I think that added to make the tour even better. This tour started at a cicchetteria for food and prosecco. From there we walked around the Jewish Ghetto and Lara told us the history of the Ghetto and the Jews in Venice. After the Ghetto, we went to the next 2 cicchetteria for a glass of wine in each and more food. All of the places we stopped were in Cannaregio. We were all having such a good time in each of these places, eating, drinking and talking, our tour lasted a bit longer than scheduled but no one complained. Lara told us how Venice was built and why the meanings of the names of the streets/canals and introduced us to a Spritz.
I would definitely recommend this tour and Lara to anyone who wants to experience not only some delicious Venetian food and wine and prosecco, but also learn about some of the history of the Jews in Venice. It would have been nice to have one of the kosher places as a stop on this tour, but since it was given on a Friday evening and everything closes for Shabbat, that wouldn't work. I do think it's something the tour company should consider including.
Our tour guide Francesca was pleasant and very, very informative. She was excellent and would highly recommend this tour! The area is beautiful, quiet, and relaxing.

Excellent tour - we really enjoyed it. Yummy food and very good wine. Really gives you a taste of Venice while learning about the history of the Jewish Ghetto. A good substitute for dinner. Our guide was knowledgeable and easy going. We really enjoyed this tour.
, Riccardo was very knowledgeable of the area we had good time
Will do it again if back to Venice. Grazie Riccardo
This was a very informative tour and our guide did a very good job. I was a little disappointed that there was a 15 fee to change the date. It was pouring down rain the day we were to tour and we changed the date. There was not way to pay the fee except by ccard and there was no way to email it to the company through a secure site or email. We had a phone plan that charged by the minute and we did not want to use this. They would not allow us to pay the guide and so the guide called them when we arrived and we clarified the situation. Fun tour and good information given about the Ghetto also. Jack and Carolyn/Dallas
This was a fun and informative tour. Ricardo was great - patient, engaging and well-informed. The small group size enabled us to get to know each other a bit and enjoy the evening.
