Elizabeth/Betta was an excellent guide! We learned so much about Venice from her. It was fun meeting all the other people in our small group. The food and wine was excellent and gave us ideas for where to go as we continue our stay. I highly recommend this tour and would do it again!
A very informative tour and lots of good food stops and delicious wine only found in Venice not even anywhere else in Italy. Our guide was a local and very knowledgeable, friendly and patient with questions. Definitely worth the money and the time spent. You'll learn a few secrets of Venice to help you get around like a local, not a tourist!
The guide was great and friendly, drinking and eating was great fun. Small group and was easy to get to know the others in the group. A lot of fun, highly recommend!!!
Absolutely wonderful! Met some great people, enjoyed the food and wine and Simone, our guide, was briiliant. Highly recommended
This was our favorite tour of our trip! So much fun! Giovanna was a knowledgeable and gracious host. We visited places that I would have loved to have had time to make repeat visits. Next time!
Brilliant tour! lovely food, lots of wines, and our guide Betty was hilarious, and very knowledgeable.
So much fun. I highly recommend the earlier tour. There are so many local spots we visited. Our guide, Claire, was so kind to take the time to write on our map of local places she suggested away from crouds and tourist. She even shared a spot to get an on tap litre of wine for €3,30!
This is the one thing we cannot stop talking about! Absolutely fabulous! This tour was probably the best part of our entire trip to Italy! Clair was our tour guide ... she was bubbly, energetic, and extremely knowledgeable about the city of Venice. We reserved this tour for our five family members and we missed our reservation because our flight was late getting in and we ended up getting lost. They were very accommodating and allowed us to join the group the following morning. We all had such a good time. I would recommend doing this tour as soon as you arrive. It will really give you a good foundation of knowledge about the neighborhoods of Venice and how Venetians live. All of the food was excellent and the wines were delicious! Don't think about it ... just book it! You won't regret it!
This tour was amazing! Giovanna was very nice, knew a ton about the city and took us to some wonderful local spots. The tour is small so it offers a more personal experience. Also, each stop provides you with a glass of wine, a ciccheti and some great conversations with fellow travelers! Well worth the money as we would never have had the chance to experience these things on our own.
Really enjoyed our tour. Our guide Claire was very knowledgeable about Venice, the wine and the food! It was a great experience and definitely good value for money
This was our very first excursion when we arrived in Venice and we couldn't have asked for a better time. Our guide Claire was incredible - knew all the best places to go and things to see. There was plenty of food and wine everything was delicious. We also met a ton of great people along the way. We liked this so much, we would go back and do it all over again. Highly recommended - especially if you can get Claire!
Clair was our tour guide, and she was an excellent guide through the streets of Venice, introducing us to five of her favorite cicchetterias, or osteria that specialize in cicchetti. With each place we went to, she was able to explain everything from the history of the establishment to what wine pairings work best for the cicchetti you're eating. The best part about the tour is that after you're done, you now have added five great places to your HH arsenal whenever you stop into Venice. Bravissimo!
Awesome! so much fun and what a great way to experience the city. highly recommended!
A really enjoyable and informative evening, enjoying sights if Venice that would might otherwise miss.
Meeting on the north bank of the canal we cross the canal on a stand up gondola and visited 5 chicchette/osteria where we have wine and the Italian equivalent to tapas.
Can't recommend it highly enough, lovely and informative guide and our fellow tourists on the tour made it a great evening
Our guide was very knowledgeable and also great fun. There were 8 of us in total on the tour and all had a great time. We went to some really interesting bars well off the usual tourist track and really enjoyed ourselves. So much so, in fact, that we stayed on for a few hours afterwards in some of the bars.
WOW Francessca was very informative and a wonderful host was worth every cent what a wonderful way to start our holiday!!!!
This tour is a must-do in Venice. Iole is a fantastic tour guide who clearly loves her city and the places we went. Venice is very confusing and this really helps find some authentic spots amongst all the mayhem. Watch out for the annoying Americans. They will talk to you about Trump. We are American so we can say that
A real highlight of our Venice trip. Our guide from Urban Adventures was born and raised in Venice with family going back generations. She was extremely knowledgeable and was fun to be around. We tasted great wine and cicchetti and made sure to go back and hit some of those same spots again. Definitely worth it!
beat wine tasting tour ever. Also, the local culture aspect was fantastic. My younger son and his wife were not wine folks until this tour and now they have begun buying and tasting at home. Guide was the best of any tour we have taken.
What a great time we had. Our guide, Giovanna, was terrific. She took us down back alleys away from the crowds to enjoy some great food and drink. This is a tour you may want to do early on your trip so you can go back to the places you visited to get away from tourists and experience Venice like the locals. This was our second trip to Venice. Wish we had done it the first time.
We loved it!
the guys in my group loved it,
Giovanna was excellent: and fun...
small enough group to visit and learn new things.
