Elizabetha was a wonderful guide who gave us a history lesson and a friendly introduction to bars we would not have had the nerve to visit otherwise. It was like friends going out together and I loved it. Just glad I didn't have to cross the canal after all the wine! Just go on this tour - you won't regret... More

We did the same type of tour with Urban Adventures in Barcelona (Tapas Tour) and this was not even close to as enjoyable. Portions were small and we were rushed. Complained to Venice office of Urban Adventures and even though we told them that we loved the Barcelona tour all they could say was that the tour "must not have... More

Dear George R., As already mentioned in the several emails we share, we do believe our product, itinerary and inclusions were to the regular level of quality & service on tour. Five fantastic historical & family own venues with 5 sample of local organic food and 5 local wines included on the price of the tour. We also believe our... More

A hugely enjoyable tour of places where Venetians live and eat. Our guide, Elisabetta, gave us a real insight into Venetian food, drink and history.

Fantastic idea-but unfortunately we did not visit all the areas we were promised. The bars we visited were interesting. Expensive evening for what it was. However, we may have been unlucky with our experience on our particular, so I'd say give it a go.

Elizabeth was our guide and she brought to life the tastes and history of Venice. Our midday tour took in a number of historical eating/drinking houses used by Venetians for generations and off the main tourist route but yet never that far away. It opened up a side to Venice we undoubtedly would have missed had we not done the... More
