Fabulous tour! Giovanna, a local Venetian, showed us the best Bocaro's with excellent wines and chicetti, to go along with our tour of Venice. She even recommended great restaurants popular with the locals that we took advantage of later in our trip. Definitely a must do! Very professional, lots of fun, and met some great people!

It was really interesting to experience the whole cicchetti and wine 'thing', but even more interesting were the places we walked to and the information we got, both historical and current. Walking through many of the narrow calles and fondamentes, without feeling lost, was a treat, and seeing the large groups of people at the bars in the late afternoon... More

Wonderful tour with Urban Adventures. Our tour guide took the group to 5 wine bars for ombra (wine tasting) and cicchetti. She provided information on the culture of Venetians and the wine bars visited were off the tourist map so a sample of real venetian life. Do Spade (behind the Railto markets) is a bacaro dating back to the 15th... More

My wife and I went on the morning food excursion on Tuesday April 15, 2014. Our guide to food discovery was Ioulie. She was fantastic and brought us to 5 sites in and around the Rialto Bridge. This included a traghetto crossing the Grand Canal. We had 6 drinks and plenty of food so that we were able to try... More

Fabulous Cicchetti tour in Venice with Urban Adventures! Cecilia waited for 45 minutes for my wife and I to arrive at the meeting location. Amazing! It was our first visit to Venice, and we got lost. The group was happy for our arrival, and off we went into the night! We visited 5 wonderful spots to sample the wine and... More

We did the bar crawl with aioli and it was so much fun. She was great and took us to the non touristy part of Venice. She gave recommendations about restaurants, etc to check out. Gave us the feel of Venetian living. We met people from US, UK, Germany and the Phillipines. Our group had so much fun we went... More

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!
