The Grand Gourmet Tour will take you on a mouth-watering three hour culinary tour of historic downtown Venice, FL. You will visit 5-6 restaurants all within a 3 block area. Enjoy several tastings and meet the owner/chef at each venue, get a souvenir bag w/menus & special offers.
NOTE:The unfavorable review from ddkingut recently, while both surprising and bruising to our ego, filled us with a resolve to re-examine our operation, to compare it with similar vendors and to seek input from both current and prior guests. While this will be an ongoing procedure in the next few months, our candid conversations with guests on the last 5 tours since that review was published, seem to vindicate our procedures and the quality and creativity of our restaurants delicious tastings.
The comments most frequently heard were "it was so much MORE than we expected" and " our (various relatives) would LOVE this". In fact, one couple from a recent tour, who are soon to be parents of the bride, are arranging for the Grand Gourmet Food Tour as an activity for their daughters bridal party this May. We are also getting referrals from many local residential communities that participated in earlier tours.
Granted, we are still a work in progress as we continue to learn and grow. But make no mistake, we are proud of our restaurant partners and the quality and diversity of the tastings that they prepare and serve.
The content of the souvenir bag that guest receive with menus, local attractions, historical information, and special offers continues to expand as we collaborate with other local businesses to enhance the value of this added feature.
In short, as long time devotee's of the Culinary tour experience, we know that our venue meets and exceeds industry standards, but we will constantly "tweak" our formula when necessary to bring our guests a truly FIRST RATE experience.....
