Camilla provided lots of local knowledge to guide us around interesting locales and tasty providores. Definitely a tour to do on an empty stomach as the food and drink is plentiful. Couldn’t think of a better way to start the day.

So glad we signed up for this experience! Since it wasn’t peak season for Venice and we visited a few weeks after the recent flooding we ended up getting a private tour! Camilla was an excellent guide and was able to show us parts of Venice that we would not have found on our

The guide was a very sweet lady. I have no complaints with her at all. Our first stop was at a coffee/pastry shop. This stop was nice. Chocolate shop was great. The rest of the tastings were not so good. The cookies were hard and dry. The tiny tiny cold pizza was tiny and

Thank you for your feedback, although we disagree with it. We are happy you loved two stops out of three and our guide knowledge, charisma and passion. That’s why we believe is a bit too much such a negative title for the review. The stop you don’t like happens to be one of the most important Pasticceria in Venice. It’s a historical one, loved by locals (expect to queue for your panettone in Christmas) and still family own for generations! We passed them the feedback and they were surprised. There is no chemicals in any of the snacks provided: neather the savory brioche with prosciutto & cheese or the “pizzetta” baked small pizza with mozzarella cheese and tomato. We served with the Spritz cocktail to introduce you to this famous Aperitivo drink and letting you know the Cicchetti scene in Venice. The “dry” biscuits, are indeed “dry” as in the recipe. They come from the Kosher oven in the Jewish Quarter and have a special meaning for the Jewish community. I believe you did not understand the guide’s story about them. It’s a pity the used of such a disqualifying title for a tour that you did like. Regards, The entire Venice Urban Adventures team.
