This was my 4th visit to Venice but this tour opened my eyes to a new food and cultural experiences. Our guide Elizabeta was excellent in very difficult circumstances do to poor weather. Professional, patient willing to share her knowledge and love of Venice with we temporary visitors. The bars we visited were excellent - the food and wine fabulous. For an insiders view of Venice this is the tour to take. I can't wait to go back.
I would highly recommended this tour. We went to small local places that we would have never found on our own and had good local wines and food. Our tour guide Lole was very knowledgeable of the area. She was from Venice. Great time!
This tour was GREAT!!! Elizabetta was a wonderful guide through Venice. She not only explained the food and wine at each stop, but also paused along the way, speaking very well of the Venician history and culture. The quantity, quality and variety of food and wine is extensive. No need for lunch!
This was a very fun tour. Great info about Venice, great food and wine tastings!
We booked this tour while in Venice and it was a lot of fun. We met lots of nice and interesting people. The tour guide, Giovanna, was terrific! The food and wine selections were all excellent. We would definitely recommend this tour to others who may be considering it.
Domingo was awesome! Knowledgeable, entertaining, and friendly. Loved the tour!
Great. A lot of fun and our guide was wonderful. We could never have found the hole-in-the-wall places without our knowledgeable guide. We even got a short gondola ride across the Grand Canal!
We took the cicchetti tour our first night in Venice and were glad we did. It gave us significant historical perspective as well as a clue to the local neighborhoods and restaurants that Venice offers. The food and wines were delicious and varied. We would absolutely recommend this tour, and would do it again ourselves. Don't miss this.
One of my favorite tours ever! I've been around the world, and granted, the varying excursions can be like comparing apples to oranges, but this just ranked as one of the unforgettable tours. It was just fun to try the different wines and cicchetti in the various atmosphere. We learned that cicchetti is the Venezian word for what we know as Spanish tapas. The people of Venice have their own language apart from Italian. The group first started out not talking much, but during the first stop we got all comfortable and cozy with one another's company. That made is so much more fun. Our guide was informative and I liked the tour because it helped to familiarize us where we were for later exploring. She gave us good pointers on where and how to visit something else. We also got to go on a gondola to cross over the canal. It was just a great night and our favorite excursion of our 3 week tour thru 10 European countries.....Salute or Cin Cin!
United States of America
Fun tour that not only included the food and wine but also some of the off the beaten path areas that provide a better view of Venice. Great Tour!
Our tour guide Claire was knowledgeable and the group was a good mix to make a fun night. An added bonus we went o 5 places and ended with a dessert cookie in sweet wine. A good variety of wine and cicchetti to experience. For each of us on the trip Claire circled restaurants to try and made sure everyone knew how to get home.
Excellent tour my only recommendation would be to meet closer to the gondola ride across the canal.
Tour guide was exellent,food and wine very good.well worth doing,enjoyed it verymuch 10/10
Excellent guide Elisabeta and the tour was fantastic! Highly recommend Urban Adventures as a tour operator...their staff seem highly motivated and made the tour a highlight to our trip to Venice. Way better experience than other tour providers.
Elizabeth was a great tour guide. She gave us colorful local information. Took us to great stops and th wine and Cicchetti was excellent. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone I tersted in getting off the high tourist areas and experiencing Venice.
This was a very nice tour to learn of the food and wine served. Giovanna, the guide, was very knowledgeable and a delight to be with. I highly recommend this tour to enjoy the wine/food and go to specific Venice bars.
You ain't seen Venice if you ain't been in a Cicchetti bar...a typical bistrot where you eat the Venitian tapas served with a glass of wine....or two...or three...indeed, even though the tour brochure mentions one glass of wine per bar....the lovely truth is that they are very generous....especially if you tour with lovely guide Elizabeth-a! Believe it or not with a name like that...she is definitely a 100 Venetian blonde!
We were met by the lovely Yole at 11.30am on the dot, after introductions there were only 5 of us on this tour we set of on our excursion. Yole was very informative about the wines, cicchetti, establishments we visited and their history. After a short walk and short boat ride across the Grand Canal we reached our first destination. Contrary to some other reviews I would say that the wine and cicchetti provision was just right, we managed 5 different inns in our time, each serving different kinds of cicchetti ranging from creamy salt cod, to sardines and stuffed olives. There was something for everyone. We didn't come away hungry but equally we didn't feeling tipsy, just a really good balance. I would highly recommend this tour, you went to places in Venice that you might otherwise miss especially if you were only on a short break as we were.
Great to see a more Venetian side of this tourist hot spot and Claire our guide was friendly, welcoming and full of information. Good value and great fun. I would highly recommend.
Simona, You rock girl, we started our retirement celebration in Venice and thanks to you and this tour it will certainly be extra special
Our tour guide was the perfect choice for our evening. We arrived tired and hungry and hot in Venice and met the tour. She was fresh and lively - willing to laugh about her adopted city. Shared loving stories about the people who really live in Venice. The cicchetti were fun - different - foods we would not have ordered and the 500 year old bars were priceless. We had a lot of alcohol - interesting flavors- but she was quick to give water since it was very hot. And she taught us how to interact with locals- language - riding the traggetti. A perfect evening to liven us up after lots of travel!
Fantastic tour guide and value for money. Met some really lovely people.
Our Venice Food Tour: Cicchetti and Wine was fabulous. Simone was our tour guide and we had the best time and met several couples, one of which was going on the same cruise as us. Simone was friendly, professional and lots of fun. We were a little late to the meeting spot and she was so gracious about the wait. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone.
