This tour was a blast! Our guide Claire was very knowledgeable and fun to be with. The cicchetti and wine was excellent. Great way to experience places you'd never find on your own, and learn about the local scene and history, all while drinking great wine and eating delicious food!
Travel Guide Elizabeta was excellent. This is exactly what we were hoping visits to various pubs in Venice would be like. Highly recommended.
The guide was knowledgable and the food and wine choices superb! We came for the food, but got the added benefit of getting to tour the out of the way areas of Venice at night. What a magical experience!
Loved the tour we received on out the way places to enjoy appetizers with matching wines, our tour guide was friendly and very knowledgable about the community we were touring with very good english.
This lunchtime tour was one of the highlights of our trip to northern Italy. Our guide Giovanna, a native Venetian, started with a tour of Canareggio and a number of tips of how to see Venice best. She led us to the Rialto Market area by crossing the Grand Canal on a traghetto and brought us to five bars. In turn each served us wine and cicchetti, small hors d'oeuvres size snacks. What a delicious outing. Our group was international, from the US, England, Australia and Colombia, and sociable. The only negative was waiting for a couple who was lost to arrive at our starting point. Giovanna was knowledgable, friendly and made sure we were happy! It was more efficient and fun than it would have been to go on our own. If we are so lucky as to go to Venice again, we will probably take this tour again.
Great tour! We took 4 tours on our trip and really enjoyed this one. Unfortunately we did this one on our last night in Venice and wish we would have done it in the beginning of the trip so we could have gone back to some of the restaurants. Highly recommended!
Exceeded expectations...would highly recommend this tour.
Group very small, food was excellent and the wine delicious.
And the guide was genuine.
We really enjoyed this tour. We went to some of the oldest establishments Venice and had really good food and wine.
Clare was very knowledgeable and a very fun host. She did a great job. We will definitely take another tour.
Took this tour first week of October and could not have been more pleased. It was a great evening meeting people from all over the world and the guide was so pleasant and easy to understand. She made every stop memorable and fun. Yes, we would highly recommend this tour as one to enjoy while you are in Rome.
A very social and enjoyable way to sample food and wine and wind one's way through Venice's fascinating maze of side streets and narrow alleys. Our guide, Elizabeth, was knowledgable and engaging and went out of her way to make the event very informative and most fun.
Good food, good wine, good people who could ask for more?
Great insight into Venetian social life as well as the wine and food
This was a brilliant walking tour and Simone was an excellent guide....I can definitely recommend this tour
We sampled some really lovely Italian foods accompanied by a variety of wines, finishing with a dessert wine with a biscuit
Our group was fun and by the end of the tour it felt as though we had known each other for years.... Great company
Some real gems of drinking and eating establishments were introduced to us, in the back streets of Venice. We would never have stumbled across them in the short time that we were there for, so this tour was excellent in showing us these hidden treasures
A truly wonderful experience that has such brilliant lasting memories
Thanks very much to Simone and the group that we were with .... For a most amazing time xx
Our tour guide was fun and very knowledgeable of the history of Venice as well as the restaurants and their proprietors. The food was very good and we had some nice surprises with the wines!
We booked this trip as we had been on one in Rome last year and really enjoyed it. We was not dissapointed the group was a good size , our guide was local so new the area very well and showed us where the locals ate.The wine and food was very good ,this gave us the confidence to explore smaller local places to eat ourselves, we found the food and prices so much better than in the main tourist areas.Thankyou Viator for a excellent trip .We will book another next year when we go to Barcelona .
Claire was an amazing tour guide. Loved the 15th century bar that has been in continuous service since the 1500s! Wine, food, and company were great!
Our guide was excellent and very well informed!!! I would highly recommend this tour, 5 stars!!
Our tour guide, Elisabetta was very good - entertaining and informative. I would highly recommend her and this food and wine tour.
Our tour guide Giovanna did an excellent job. The tour was well organized, and featured a wide variety of 5 differing locations for cicchetti and wine tasting. Being a native of Venice, she gave us great insights into the history, pronounciations, neighborhoods, and excellent recommendations. The tour included a brief gondola crossing of a canal, which was unexpected and enjoyable. The amount of walking and pace were just right for us. It's certainly worthwhile to get the services of an expert for our introduction to Venice. Highly recommend this tour.
Due to our train arrival time, we missed this tour even though they very graciously agreed to meet us 45 min later at Rialto fish market with the group. PS travel time takes longer in Venice. If I get back to Venice, I would skip Poldi-Pizzolli museum in Milan and take an earlier train to try this tour.
Elizabetha made the night extremely enjoyable. Food was great, the wine magnificent and the company wonderful. I strongly recommend this tour.
Francesca was terrific!!! She gave us an insight into life in Venice for average Venetian. We met some very nice, interesting people and had a great evening.
The only criticism I have, and it is a personal one,is that the wine could have been a little more varied. I highly recommend this tour and especially Francesca.
This was exceptional. One of the best foodie tours we have taken and we have taken many around the world. The guide was great, filled with local history and great stories. The food and wine was excellent with more than we could eat and drink.
