Great food, great wine, learned a lot!

Claire, our guide, was very knowledgeable and extremely friendly! We had questions, she had answers! Really made me feel like I was learning how real Venetians live!

Had a wonderful time despite pouring rain. Our guide, Claire, was a great source of insider information about Venice and the cichetti tradition...the food and the wine were memorable so we returned to several places we visited later in the week!

Elisabetta was a charming and informed guide and we really enjoyed her insights into Venetian life. The traghetto ride was brilliant and so were her nuggets of information. The actual Cichetti were all delicious but for what we were paying we felt one each of each flavour offered, rather than one between two, would have represented better value, and made... More

I really enjoyed living like a real Venician for an evening. Elisabetta was a fun guide, who loves her city. She showed us how to get off the beaten path and blend in with the locals. The chiccetti tour was lots of fun and we got to taste some foods that otherwise one would never try on their own. Riding... More

Met some great other folks on the tour and hung out with them and enjoyed some wine after the tour. Our guide was great and told us other places to go to be like a local for the remainder of our trip. Great food, great wine. Recommend for anyone in Venice.

This is a fantastic walking tour of the city that exposes you to delicious lunch and wine. Out tour guide was fantastic and very helpful. I would recommend this tour, and would suggest it be done on one of the first days of the trip as the information acquired is helpful to enjoy more of the city.

Chiara was an excellent guide who knew Venice well and as very helpful. The tour covered a range of bars, wines and food types. It was very well put together. We visited well known bars (from No Reservations), older / more traditional bars and finished at a newer, more trendy place. I highly recommend this tour.

This was my first chicchetti and wine tour in Venice, and I couldn't have been happier. Our tour guide Roberto was very informative about the local culture and history. Being that he was a local we got to see and experience restaurants and wine bars that we would have never found on our own. Food was amazing and wine was... More
