“Best Part of our Venice Excursion”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Cecilia met us on time and as planned, and right off the bat, had to deal with a "situation" related to other participants in our group. She handled the problem with grace, keeping everyone happy and ready to enjoy our night in Venice. With Cecilia's help, we quickly came to understand the benefits to backing up, even just one block, from all of the tourist hubbub. She showed us places that were uncrowded, but awesome, and got us up to speed on local customs such as the proper way to greet the proprietors, how to express our appreciation (in ways the locals would use) for the food we were tasting, etc. This evening was absolutely the highlight of our brief Venice excursion. Without a doubt, you should book this tour. You will be so glad you did!

“Only do this if you like to have fun...”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

I would do this again on another trip to Venice. Everyone on the tour ends up being friends by the end and usually continue the after tour on their own. This tour isn't just for foodies but anyone who enjoys good company and a good time. We've stayed in touch with a few people on the tour and look forward to seeing them in the US this fall.

“Most fun we had in Venice”
Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

Cecelia was simply perfect. This tour is a must if you want to do as locals do. Great company, wine, and food. Best money and time spent on our 5 days in Venice.

“Great introduction to Venice.”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Did this on our first evening in Venice (21st May) and loved the tour and loved Cecelia.
Not only does she show us some great places (loved Do Mori) but is very informative about her home city. If you fancy a Gondolier ride, try the Traghetto first for 2 euros. Tell her where you are staying and she will draw on your map (provided you take one) great places for you to try. Cecelia is very passionate about Venice and you will be too. Have a chat whilst walking from bar to bar and give her my love.
