Our group of 11 (ranging in age from 16 to 56) had a fantastic time with Elisabetta. She started off with a fascinating short walk through some non-tourist sections of Venice, and gave a great description of what it's like to live and work in this unique city. We then crossed the Grand Canal via gondola, "non-tourist" style (standing up... More

That was a great beginning of our short stay in Venice - thanks to our very authentic guide Elisabetta who we liked very much. The snacks and different kinds of wine were delicious. Highly recommendable!!!!

A great way to try and find some excellent tapas places. Roberto was helpful and showed us other places to eat after. An excellent introduction to Venice tapas and wines

We ended up on the day tour which we were originally disappointed about because felt the evening one would be more interesting but how wrong were we?! Our group was exceptional, all great fun and really got into the whole experience. Started with a wander in the back streets, then to the local market (only open in the mornings) selling... More

Fantastic way of learning something of the real Venice. Off the beaten track indeed; informative without any touristy embellishment; a small group of 12 who were all best friends after the fifth glass of wine; tremendous chichetti and a real dip into Venetian life. Elisabetta is a terrific guide - my friend and I have been to Venice seven times... More

Elizabetha was a great guide. Entertaining and informative. We did this the evening we arrived and went back to 2 of the places the next day for more food and wine, as we enjoyed it that much. It's both a history, tradition, food, wine and cultural education. Great value.

This is my second time to participate in the Urban Adventures Chichetti tour of Venice. I was so impressed the first time, that I scheduled it for a large group that I was leading (36 in total). Every moment of the experience was amazing from the planning and coordination of 3 smaller walking groups to the tour guides, food, and... More

The food and wine tour in Venice was a wonderful way to get off the real tourist area and experience local culture. Elizabeth (sorry if not correct) was a tremendous informative and fun guide
