This was our first tour in Venice (on the evening of our arrival). It was a most pleasant way to get a feel for the city and have some nice eats and wine too. Francesca (with the darker hair) was a delightful hostess and guide - she took us to some very authentic eating/drinking establishments. This experience and history lesson was a great start to our vacation. I recommend this tour and Francesca.
Fun tour! Tour guide was very knowledgeable about this area and Venice as a whole. Good wine, good walk and ample delicious snacks.
The guide was very informative and the three stops at local bars were great fun
The tourguide was knowledgeable and personable. The small size of the group (4 plus guide) was also a plus. Snack quantity was ample enough to be called "dinner."
Turned in to a pub crawl and had to buy extra drinks and food as not enough food given.
Great area of venice. 9 of us on tour. Didn't learn a lot about Jewish Ghetto but thoroughly enjoyed the tour. More like a pub crawl withTapas. Great group of people. Would recommend this, atmosphere in bars was great, it was a Saturday evening when we went so not sure what mid week would be like? Caught the vaparetto to stop recommended. Was very busy lucky to get on first one and arrived with minutes to spare! Directions supplied were superb. Considering how easy it is to get lost in Venice finding meet point was easy. Walked back to St Marks square took us about 30 mins after end of tour. Do it you will enjoy.
Guide was very knowledgeable and nice evening walk around the Jewish quarter which I thought was one of the best places to visit and even stay. I would say the only problem was the "tasters" were 4 out of 5 fish and out of the small group of about 10-12 of us - not many were fish lovers and therefore we were left with not nice alternative. I think the guide was embarrassed about that but the places we visited were really unprepared for anything else but fish. It was however a really good way to meet people coming together from different countries so we did enjoy it we just did not like the tasty bites and even the fish lovers struggled one or two offers. All in all it was a nice way to spend the evening but I wouldnt do it again.
4 of us (2 couples) took this tour. OK intro to small businesses of Venice selling appetizers with your selection of wines. Post tour we all felt we could have done it on our own. A brief history of the Jewish Ghetto was included. No better than average.
Guide was lovely, but wine n food only good at first location, I swear the last place tried to pass off vinegar ...yucky!! very little description of the wine etc too.
We've taken walking food and wine tours before through Viator in Barcelona which we loved! The restaurants and bars that were on this tour in Venice were not of the same quality even though the price was more... At one of the restaurant stops my husband got a look at the kitchen on his way to the bathroom and refused to eat or drink anything there because it was so incredibly filthy!!! The guide was just ok.
