We took this tour on the 12th of July with Claire and it was a highlight of our European holiday. Claire's knowledge of the history, culture, and food was extensive and freely shared. The food was delicious as was the wine and we enjoyed the extras such as the walk through the fish markets and the ride across the Grand... More

Me and my daughter did the Wine and Cicchetti Tour the day after we arrived in Venice. Have to say it was one of the best we have ever been on. We had a lovely guide called Elizabetta . The wine and cicchetti were of a very good quality. Our guide also gave us lots of information about Venice as... More

Our tour guide, Elizabeth, was awesome and we got to see and eat at a lot of restaurants that we would never have thought to stop at. The city can be kind of overwhelming with all of the tourists so it's nice to have someone show you nice places where you can go. It was definitely worth every penny and... More

If you are visiting Venice in the summer, I recommend talking the evening tour (5:30 ~ 8:30) since it's always more enjoyable to eat and drink when the temperatures are a bit more comfortable. Plus, since the tour ends around 8:30, it's the perfect time to grab dinner or continue to enjoy the local bars with new friends that you... More

This tour was great fun! It included 4 stops, various cicchetti (which is like appetizers for the locals, we tried llittle sandwiches, seafood with polenta, deep-fried olives, and even a cookie), along with different wines and prosecco. Paired with the wine, the sampled foods were definitely enough to equal a meal. Everything was really good and away from the more... More

We had a fantastic time on our tour. It was my husband's birthday and we toasted him in one of the bars and the entire bar sang Happy Birthday in English and then Italian! The guide was excellent, our group was fun to hang out with, we learned much about the real Venice and their food and way of life.

Wonderful way to see Venice. After a few days in Florence viewing sacred pictures, churches, and sculptures amid throngs of tourists, we were ready for something different on our day trip to Venice. We arrived by high speed train - stress free - and took a 15 minute walk to meet our tour guide, Iole. Iole was lovely (I aspire... More
