While I enjoyed the Cicchetti sampling and it enabled me to try some things I wouldn't otherwise have tried, it wasn't really much of a walking tour, which is how it was described. We did one long walk (maybe 20 minutes) at the beginning, but our guide (Giovanna) was walking so quickly that it was hard to enjoy and I... More

Having read so many positive reviews of the ciccetto experience we decided to book it and give it a try. So glad we did. Elisabetha the tour guide was great fun and took us to 5 different bars where we sampled a different drink and snack (ciccetto) at each one. We went to bars which to be honest we would... More

Giovanna was great! Nice stroll through the locals' streets, pointing out some interesting sites along the way. The meat of the tour did not disappoint with a nice selection or bars, wines, and cicchetti!

She gave us some cool details on Venice as we walked from bar to bar. The group it self was a fun mix of people from the UK, Australia and the US. We... More

My friend found this & booked it. It was a very good introduction to Venice, and getting around! It also introduces you to the Venice of the Venetians. The girl conducting our tour was lovely & informative and her English good..... Highly recommended

Signed up for the Ciccetti and Bar tour and was very glad I did. It was an relaxed, fun and informative evening with an excellent guide and a fun group of people. We went to small historic bars in out of the way places - the kind you might not find yourself or not recognize for their unique character. Definitely... More

I've always wanted to try cicchetti at various bacari in Venice, but felt a bit intimidated. After going on the 3-hour tour with Claire, we were able to go back to the places we had visited as well as try a few more on our own. It was a great experience.

We went on a walking tour with our guide Elisabetta and she did a fantastic job. We learned a lot about local Venicians, the cities history, and had lots of tasty food and wine along the way! We highly recommend, and will repeat on our next trip.

This was a fantastic way to get a different feel for Venice, visiting some smaller little local bars tucked away in alleyways. Some lovely food and wines to sample along the way and a passionate, knowledgable local guide. Highly recommended.
