What a great time had by all. This was a lovely walk with Giovanna through some of the local parts of Venice sampling some of the wines and tapas of the area. Good fun and a new perspective on a lovely place. We would do this again.

Behind the scenes tour of best of Venice's local restaurants. Wish we had taken the tour on our first night as it revealed a special venue of wonderful food and drink.

When we arrived in Venice I thought "Wow this is fabulous !". Then we met up with Elizabeta and it just got better. First of all she is great very funny and very knowledgeable. She treated us like friends rather than tourists. I liked her approach as she made a real effort to encourage the group to fit in and... More

Did this tour on my 1st night in Venice and was glad because it opens your eyes to the real Venice. Our guide took us off what she called the zombie track (the main tourist streets) and gave a short tour of the back streets. Then it was a quick stand up gondola ride across the canal to start the...

This was fun. Small group of just four couples, my husband and myself included. Elizabeth was our tour guide, and she was lively, full of info. We regretted not having taken this tour near beginning of trip as Elizabeth gave us some valuable info such as how to take the standing gondola across Grand Canal, etc. We had quite a... More

What a fantastic time with our tour guide Elisabethe This was probably the best day we had in Venice ( a fabulous city). We knew it centred around food and drink and it didn't disappoint! All of the places we went to we probably would not have maybe even noticed yet all of them were great. The food and wine... More

Honestly, this was the best thing we did during our 2 1/2 days in Venice. Imagine, sampling vino in a tiny eatery dating back to 1492! Our guide Elizabethe was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. Strolling the backstreets far from the tourists, we learned all kinds of interesting things about Venice, and especially enjoyed the company of the 8-10 other guests... More
