Silvia was a lovely person, extremely enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The food was interesting and tasty
Amazing Variety of Local Dining
ROY_W, Aug 2022
There was an amazing variety of food at each stop. Our guide, Anna was outstanding. She was very knowledgeable and able to keep a good pace to the experience. There were multiple choices at each stop for anyone who didn’t like the planned items. We made 5 stops and every one of them was different and enjoyable. There was plenty of wine and alternatives for kids and those who didn’t want wine. Thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this tour.
Wonderful way to see Venice!
Amy_S, Jul 2022
Fabulous experience! Anna was welcoming, fun and so knowledgeable. While the food was delicious, the best part for our family was getting to see so much of Venice while learning about the history and culture. The tour is super organized and perfectly paced (time to enjoy the food and drink, served very quickly, etc.) I highly recommend this experience!
so much fun
Chad_A, Jul 2022
Alicia was fantastic. Very knowledgeable. I think I am now addicted to Cicchetti and I already adored the Italian wine and landscape of the water city. Cheers!!
Highlight of our trip
Jordan_N, Jul 2022
We loved this tour, it was truly a highlight of our trip in Venice. The food and wine was seemingly endless so it's definitely worth the price. We got to walk across the Rialto bridge and see the Venice fish market and a fruit and vegetable market, as well. Our guide, Anna, was amazing and incredibly knowledgeable. Not only did we learn about the food and the restaurants we were eating at, but we got a good insight into the city and it's culture.
Eat a true local in Venice
Angela_N, Jul 2022
As first-time visitors to Venice, it’s hard not to explore every bar and restaurant that awaits. But my friend and I were only in the area for a few days and wanted to make sure we focused our time on the must-eats. The Rialto Market Food and lunchtime tour was one of the main highlights of our trip! We were part of a smaller group (4 total) which made the experience feel all the more exclusive and private. Ana, our guide, was everything you could hope for in a tour like this. She was so welcoming, charismatic and passionate about what she does that it made our tour feel like we were getting the inside scoops. She made each stop even more enjoyable, with her rich history and knowledge along with her genuine relationships with restaurant and bar owners. She also made it clear that if we didn’t like something we were eating, to tell her so she could offer us something else. Sure enough, we liked every thing. The tour itself went by so fast and it was more like meeting up with a friend who’s excited to take you to all the best stops! All we had to do was show up and eat. All the food and drinks were already curated for us. Overall it was a great balance of flavors, drinks and history — but the best thing about it all was our guide Ana :).
See Venice through food!
George_M, Jul 2022
Our tour guide Anna was incredible!!! Made us feel like we knew her forever. :over the small group experience (6) and the food was SOOOOO good! What a terrific way to explore Venice and what a value!
Great way to explore a small area of Venice
Nigel_A, Jul 2022

Such a great tour!
Alex_C, Jul 2022
My husband and I did this tour and it was so much fun! It was the best thing we did on our trip! Anna was amazing!!! She was so informative about the history of the city, the different food stops and all the food and wine. She really made the tour special for us. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who likes to try authentic Venetian food and likes to drink delicious wine! We tried many things that we probably wouldn’t have tried on our own. Very happy we did this!
A Great Tasting Experience!
Cherylee_H, Jul 2022
My husband and I decided to give this food and wine tour a go after a recommendation from our daughter and we were not disappointed! Our guide was the lovely Anna. We were so impressed by her local knowledge of all the sampled products and the Venetian food and wine history, especially being quite young. She really is a credit to your company! We were very fortunate that the group was small and made the experience feel more personal. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour to my family and friends when visiting Venice. A special thanks again to Anna who has left us with some wonderful memories of our time in Venice!
Great Food and Experience
Cyndy_P, Jun 2022
Our guide, Silvia, was informative and personable. We had a great experience and highly recommend it.
Amazing tour
Alice_D, Jun 2022
The food and wine was excellent, local and off the beaten track (and there was lots of it!). Alice was an incredible guide, she knew what she was talking about, was very friendly, gave us lots of history and was so knowledgeable. Couldn't recommend this tour enough.

Inside glimpse into the real Venice
Ruthann_A, Jun 2022
This tour was a true highlight of our trip to Italy. Super fun and informative. Also a great way to feel like you are experiencing Venice more like an insider. The history tours are great, but your definitely a tourist. With this tour you feel more like a local who is out for the afternoon with friends visiting your favorite food and wine haunts.

Great tour
Christine_G, May 2022
Great being led by Anna through winding streets, popping into hidden away places for a glass of wine and tasty nibbles.
Fantastic food tour
EmmaN, May 2022
After a disappointing last minute cancellation of our tour the day before we were luckily free the next day due to another cancellation of a different tour, with all these changes it is easy to imagine that we were not in the best of moods. However Ana’s sunny disposition soon had us all smiling and ready for a great day of food and wine. We were not to be disappointed the tour was really fantastic and I could not recommend it enough. Ana took us to some lovely places and the wine was really fantastic, we got to try all sorts of local food. My suggestion, don’t expect to want a full dinner afterwards. I think we were all tempted to book another tour for the next day! Thanks Ana!!
Fantastic guide and amazing Food and drink
Karen_T, May 2022
Our tour guide Ana was brilliant, she was very knowledgeable telling us so much about Venice and it’s people. We went to the fish market which was amazing and all of the local people that we met along the way were so friendly and we were given such a warm welcome in all of the local bars that Ana took us to all fabulous places that we didn’t know existed and where we had lots of amazing food and wines that we never would have had the opportunity to try if we hadn’t come on this amazing tour. So a big thank you to Ana we will never forget you or our wonderful tour of Venice. We can’t recommend this tour or this great lady enough if you visit Venice you should definitely book this tour Thank you Ana Best wishes Karen and Filippo
