We had a wonderful evening on this tour. Our guide, Iole, was very informative, friendly, accommodating and entertaining! The other members of the group were lovely (five couples in total) which made the evening even more pleasant. The actual wine and cicchetti offered was noteworthy - all the wine was wonderful and the cicchetti was varied and tasty and, although possibly not to everyone's taste, it was good to try local fayre. We enjoyed it all, though!! The servings weren't stingy, either - a good size glass of wine and small serving of food at each serving - I think we had six servings over 4 ostaria!! We learnt a lot and enjoyed it immensely! A good way to visit parts of Venice which perhaps you wouldn't find independently, too. All in all, thoroughly recommended and thanks again to Iole!
Really enjoyed this tour. Claire and Sarah our tour guides were brilliant. Met some great people and visited local bars you would never of found. Got introduced to some local wines including "Raboso" and had a real great night. - Recommended.
I had been to Venice a couple of times before, and still really enjoyed this tour. The guide was very nice and took us to some of the typical Chichetti places. She also gave us a couple of recommendations of places to go later on, which we really enjoyed.
The guide was a young woman who was born and raised here, in Venice, and knew the area and still lives here. She took us to four places where wine and cicchetti are served and we tasted a variety of cicchetti and wines. I never would have tried some of the cicchetti on my own, but am glad I did = and I didn't know of some of the wines [Robusto?] and am glad I learned. Interesting and fun evening.
All the best night spots, lively conversation, great wine and tapas, and you don't have to worry about driving home toasted. We really enjoyed this guided night on the town.
Recommended...It was fantastic, Elisabetta de tour guide was super nice... At the beginning we got lost looking for the meeting place, we call to the company, and the lady on the phone from the tour company was really nice and patience to guide us through the city, my husband and I had a wonderful time!!!
Very friendly and knowledgeable guide who gave us some great tips on other places to visit throughout our trip. Good food, plenty of wine and great company!
I love doing food tours and this has been one of my favourites. Every place that you went to was authentic - in fact sometimes we were told that we would need to 'elbow' our way in like a local, to get through all the locals having their ombre and cicchetti.
Good tour, it is difficult to navigate Venice and find good local places to eat and drink. I do not remember the name of our guide (She was originally from France), but she showed us parts of Venice only known to the locals. Im not really a wine drinker but I enjoyed all 5 wines and 5 chicchetti.
We really enjoyed this tour visiting the little cafes/bars and tasting the wines and the nibbles, even the salted fish! Our guide was very informative and we had a great group for a lovely evening wandering in Venice.
Fabulous tour with local Claire who has a wealth of knowledge about way more than food and wine. Can recommend
Outstanding real feel for the people of Venice. Good place to get away from tourists meet the real Venetians and sample the food. Loved it
A brilliant introduction to Venice and the culture of its residents. Our guide was excellent and we sampled amazing wines and some really yummy food! We did this tour on our first evening in Venice and it meant we learnt about local traditions and really helped us over the next few days to enjoy even more food and wine! We met some lovely people and have kept in touch since which was an added bonus. We would highly recommend this tour!
Met our guide at an easy to find location. She had good english and was very knowledgeable. She spoke to all couples in turn during the trip as well as a group. Tour lasted nearly an hour longer than scheduled as we were all enjoying ourselves. Would recommend this trip. Good value for money.
Fab! Fab! Fab!
Where do we start...
This was, in agreement to my party the absolute highlight of our time in Italy!
Our tour guide Iole, was superb in every way! Her knowledge was inevitable and interesting. The wine and foods were amazing. And you get full glasses! There wasn't any hard sales (which we did expect) however we did buy lots as the wine was soooo good!! We met some lovely people and generally had a wonderful evening! Highly recommended!!!
