This tour was amazing and I highly recommend it. Lovely food and wine and you really learn how the Venetians eat. Our guide was lovely and very knowledgeable about the history of Venice and all the food. Great fun.
Our Tour on August 6 was perfect. We had a nice tourguide and 2 nice companions from the UK. The information about the Jewish Ghetto was very interesting. The 3 stops at the local bars with cicchetti were perfect stops to sit for a little, drink a sip of wine and talk about lots of stuff. Thank you!
Our fabulous tour guide Lara provided lots of historical information and brought us to some fantastic spots popular with the locals. Would definitely recommend. Thanks
This was a very nice introduction to the somewhat hidden area of Venice.
The guide was quite nice and funny.
We got stuck in the rain, but it all worked out in the end.
Wine can do that.
Bernadette was a really wonderful, friendly tour guide who spoke English very well and was kind, fun and communicative. She looked after us very well. It was a great start to my 6 day visit to Venice. I went back the next day to the Jewish ghetto area to take a closer look at art galleries, shops and restaurants that Bernadette had pointed out. I really enjoyed eating and drinking with the other group members. A very pleasant evening. I highly recommend this tour.The main thing is that it shows you the kind of place to look for for cheap wine, coffee and bar snacks. It was also here that I first came across the fried orange balls of rise: Arancia di Riso. These make a good supper substitute, with a few cicchetti bar snacks, which will save you dining out . After the tour I felt more confident to choose the local bars and know that the snacks are good value, fresh and tasty and won't make you sick! Leave plenty of time to get there. Crossing venice can take two or three times as long as you think. Two people missed our tour. I was nearly late, and the company had phoned me to see if I need help getting there which impressed me. We went to the lovely quiet back waters - such a delight. This tour was one of the best parts of my trip to venice
Delightful stroll in areas I wouldn't otherwise have visited, terrific leader, delicious cicchetti at places I would never have found on my own. The tour members remained chatting and several of us walked back to our hotels together. A good taste of the culture of Venice.
This was a very intimate later afternoon tour both interesting with wonderful tidbits of information and food / wine tasting at three locations. Well worth it.
This was the best tour we did in Venice. Lara our tour guide was excellent and made the tour a big success. Very pleasant evening. Thank you
this was a lovely tour with a very special guide. She gave us good insight into the history of Venice and the areas we were in and explained all of the food as we were served. We really enjoyed this tour and would recommend it to anyone visiting Venice. A bonus is we got to see some lovely areas that were not so tourist oriented. A all around!!
This was really fun and I wish I could remember the name of our tour guide. She was so knowledgeable and nice! It was a fascinating history of the Jewish Ghetto and there were three stops for drinks and excellent cicchetti. Excellent tour from beginning to end.
I really loved this tour! Our guide, Lara, was excellent! She was funny, very informative, and we really enjoyed chatting with her! I would definitely do it again!
Delightful tour, set at a nice relaxed pace. Our guide, Sabrina, was great...charming, knowledgable and professional. I highly recommend this tour.
Good, informative tour of the Jewish ghetto with an excellent guide. The food, included with the tour, was interesting
Excellent tour! Would never of toured the Jewish Ghetto otherwise. The Cicchetti and Wine was fabulous as well. Highly recommend this tour.
Franccesca was amazing showing us around the un-known parts of Venice. She is a Venetian, so she knows where to walk around. The bacari that we went to were really cool. That day was raining a lot but it didn't matter because hearing about history and looking at the beautiful buildings made the rainy day enjoyable. City Wonders is a great company, if you can book tours with this company go for it.
Lara was great. Perfecto. Sorry I rated Lara in the Murano tour- mistake the. Tour guide on that tour was difficult to understand. Lara was great.
This tour provides quick and essential tour of Venice.
You can have time to chat with travelers from different regions/countries with glasses of wine and local food.
The tour leader, Lara, is so nice and friendly. You are going to like her!
Great tour not only of some great Wine bars and appetizers, but very informative of Venice off the beaten path. Donata was wonderful.
Beatrice was an excellent tour guide with an answer to all our questions about the area.
Run and informative tour. Three couples were led on a tour of the Jewish Ghetto district. Along the way, we stopped for wine and appetizers in three different bar type places. The guide was informative about the area history as well as the custom of cicchetti and wine. A really pleasant time was had by all
Great evening, highly recommended. Francesca was brilliant and really knew her stuff. Fabulous food and drink too.
This tour was so fun! Just the right mix of info about Venice and relaxing drinks and snacks. A good time was had by all!
We thoroughly enjoyed this informative and relaxed tour. Lara our guide was knowledgable and affable, taking time to ensure everyone was comfortable and enjoying themselves. Each of the 3 bars we visited was different and presented a different type of Cecchitti and wine for us to taste and we were satisfied with the amount of food. Hearing the fascinating history of the Ghetto helped explain an important part of Venetian history and yet was not a heavy history tour. Highly recommend this tour!
