This was a really neat walking tour especially for small town folks like us who don't enjoy the crowds. We were taken to very quaint little wine spots with great appetizers.
This tour was so great! I was traveling alone and this tour helped me feel more connected. It was so fun to see where the locals go and our guide was so gracious. She instantly felt like a friend.
You MUST to do this tour! I went as a solo traveler and couldn't have had more fun! Simona was our guide and she was FANTASTIC. Informative, fun and lively. I liked that when she did teach us things about Venice, they were more the sociological things than the historical things -- like for example, explaining the wells and the water and also telling us about Project MOSE. I got enough history out of my other tours. Honestly, I loved all the little bars we stopped in -- we got to see a university graduation party and learn all about those traditions too. I loved the food, I loved the drink. Honestly, loved this tour. It's a must do and I've already recommended it to my friends visiting next weekend!
Great tour, very interesting and fun. Learnt lots of hints and tips about where to go to get away from the busy areas and how to get about Venice. So good we repeated it ourselves the following day!
This tour was fantastic, not only the food and wine but also for becoming locals for a little while. Highly recommended
Wonderful experience that gave us a sense where residents go to eat and drink.
Fun tour. Small Group of about 10-12. Lots of food and drink in tiny out of the way places.
Manola, ourGuide, filled us in on Venetian history as we walked through the city from place to place. She was energetic, fun and informative about Venice and Cicchetti customs. Very enjoyable.
Was to be a two hour tour but ended up for like four hours. We went to four different bars and ended with tiramisu and dessert wine as a special treat.
This was the highlight of the entire trip! We met couples from around the world and even stayed after the tour was over to get more wine and talk so more! Truly a great experience and I recommend to anyone!!
I highly recommend this tour. Our guide, Simona, was so fun and knowledgeable, and truly showed us some of the hidden gems of the city through delicious local food and wine. This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Venice!
Claire was a wonderful guide. Great fun, great food and wine, and great folks on the tour.
Excellent Urban Adventures guide - a native Venetian, well-educated, warm and friendly. The wine bars we visited were excellent - a great selection of local wines and food. Not to be missed.

Our guide, Francesca was a great host and guide. 45 minute walking tour in the real Venice: residential and a lot quieter than Saint Mark's square. She was informative and had insightful information about the bars we visited as well as the food and wines we consumed. The three hours were well worth the money.
This was a fabulous tour. The guide from Urban Adventures, Simona, was fun, knowledgeable and created a great experience.
Another great tour in Venice away from the tourist track. Very much enjoyed. Tour guide was vey good
Loved it!! - not information overload but great facts. Lovely drink and snacks. We had a brilliant group of all ages and we just gelled!! - we had such a great time that we stayed together after the guide went and had more drinks. My husband and I also did the bars again the next day on our own and enjoyed finding our way around. Our guide was lovely too.
Best tour we did in Venice, the group was amazing anf fun. Got to taste local foods and wines. Highly recommended
We enjoyed our guide's lessons about Venice. We want to small bars that were small, but long on Venetian history. The food was typical Venetian and the wines were good. It was a lovely way to spend an evening in The city.
A fun few hours exploring some of the bars in the back streets of Venice.
Great food, great drink and good company.
Our guide was exceptional!

Giovanna, you were a charm and a blast. Loved the places you introduced us to, the wines, the foods, the people. Also, loved your Venice history lessons as well as the tips and tricks to follow save water, drink wine. My traveling companion and I both agreed that of all the tours we've been on, yours was the best and the most fun. Hope to share some wine and cicchetti with you on my next trip to Venice in one of those wonderful, small bars.
A lot of fun! Learned a ton and had some good wine and cicchetti! Claire the guide was very effusive and knowledgeable about the back neighborhoods of Venice! She had great recommendations for out of the way restaurants and bars!
Yummo, again a great way to get your bearings in a city, learn about cicchetti. Our guide was knowledgeable, and friendly and fun. Participants were awesome and again so glad of the walking
Giovanna was amazing. What a great tour. Owrth every penny. You do not need dinner after all the great chicetti and wine you will have touring 5 places. She also included a traghetto ride across the canal and small tour of the local side of Canareggio. Do not miss. A great way to spend an evening in Venice.
Great tour!!! Francesca is the BEST! We have already recommended this outing to others for their stay in Venice. Thanks again for a fun time!!
