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 in the boat), and began our visits to the wine bars.

And those visits were terrific. Very interesting food, good wine, and outstanding explanations and storytelling by Elisabetta. She learned a bit of the personalities of our group and made it fun for everyone. The stops she chose were excellent and we felt very welcome.

Do follow the recommendations here and do this tour early in your time in Venice. It'll pay off.

Highly, highly recommended.

Thank Arthur V

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 amazing fresh fish and incredible selection of fruit, vegetables, herbs etc. After this we started on the tour of the local (and I mean local!) bars serving Venice's style of tapas as well as sampling the local wines. By the end of the tour our whole group was very 'merry' and we all spent the next couple of hours together sipping more vinos! Our guide Elizabetta was great and the restaurants she took us too were well chosen. Recommended to book well in advance and prepare yourself for needing an afternoon nap afterwards! Try to do earlier in your visit so that you can go back and try the other restaurants recommended by the guide and to visit the bars for more tastings.

Thank you for your great feedback!

We are glad you enjoyed our tour with Elisabetta.

Also, happy to read that even if you prefer to do the evening tour, you discover that the morning departure is even greater because includes a visit to our local food market!

We hope to see you in Venice soon!

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 and walked every street and yet still found this a new and refreshing experience.
So good, I tried to book on the same tour for five weeks time when am returning with my husband. Sadly for me, the date is booked up but that itself speaks volumes about the quality on offer here.
