There are two words that you may hear a lot in Venice - "Cicchetti" and "Bacari". The word Cicchetti comes from Venetian dialect, meaning "a small and savory snack", something eaten by locals in various little Bacari (local wine bars).  The variety of cicchetti is amazing and you get to tuck into several as your local foodie guide leads you to the best and hidden bacari on the island.
Prosecco for Breakfast! - If you're visiting the most magical island on earth, why not drink prosecco for breakfast - it's made in the surrounding region after all!  The first stop on this local food tour introduces you to your first taste of cicchetti, with some local bubbly wine to accompany. 
A Hop, Skip & a Gondola! - A trip to Venice wouldn't be complete without a ride on a gondola. Instead of taking the bridge to cross Venice's Grand Canal, your local guide will take you across the water on a short 2-minute gondola ride!  Cameras at the ready!
The Spritz - After sampling some cicchetti and prosecco at your first stop, you'll progress onto another variety at your second Bacaro stop. Enter the Spritz! Whether you have a sweet tooth or like bitter drinks, there is a Spritz for everyone, along with some other delicious cicchetti to sample alongside.
Ombra & Lunch - The slang word for a small glass of wine is called an "Ombra".  This means “shade” in Italian and your local guide will explain why the wine has acquired such a name.  Stop number three will give you a taste of the local favorite Ombra, but now you've sampled the local cicchetti, it's time for something more substantial. Bring on the pasta!  A food tour would never be complete without a local lunch included.
Cooling Down With Gelato - No matter where you are in Italy, there will always be a number one favorite gelateria.  You’ll learn how to spot the best gelato in Italy as you choose from some local favorites in one of Venice's best "Gelaterie".
At the end of the tour, your guide will happily show you where to catch the nearest "Vaporetto" (water bus) or Water Taxi so you can cruise back to your accommodation or explore a little more.

Good introduction to venice.

The guide, was friendly, knowledgeable, and kept us entertained. There was adequate amount of food, and wine ! The lunch was rather disappointing though. Would do the tour at the beginning of your trip yo Venice, so that you have an idea of the good places to eat without breaking the bank, which is easy in Venice ! Overall would recommend.
Best excursion of the trip!

Since no one else signed up for the tour date that we selected, my husband and I wound up getting a private walking food tour! It was very easy to find our meeting location and the guide had a clear sign. The food was phenomenal and our guide was a true Venetian and had so much insight into the city and how much it's changed over time. She was accommodating to my vegetarian food restrictions and helped us pick authentic cuisine to try from several different restaurants. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for authentic cuisine - you'll end up very full, but the food is simply divine and the perspective we were able to gain from talking to our guide was just incredible! This was by far our favorite excursion of the 7 excursion items we had booked for our trip.
This was our second time in Venice...

This was our second time in Venice so we were looking for something a bit different this time around. We did this tour and it was fantastic. Our guides were great. The weather was a bit rainy and cold, but that didn't stop us from having a good time. We got to see some nice local locations and have some great food. We learned a lot about Venice and the daily life of a Venetian, which was quite nice. I would probably do this tour again since the locations may be switched up from time to time. Even if they weren't, it was a nice enough experience that I would repeat it.

This tour was great - really informative not just about Venetian food but also the history and culture. The food itself was excellent and was great to get a small gondola ride as well! I highly recommend this to everyone visiting Venice.
