We ate so many amazing cicchetti and drank delicious apertivo. The mortadella with pistachios was our favorite! The guide was friendly, helpful and informative. We did this tour on our first night in Venice after landing that morning and it was a perfect I traduction to the city and its food. Highly recommend!

Was contacted late ( i was already in Venice - took a train from pordenone - and walking to the venue ) to inform me that there was a change in time. I was unable to shift my schedule to accommodate. Was told they will offer a refund, after I said ok to the refund, they never replied. Two days later and they have still not replied.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Dear Lesley, we contacted a few days before the tour first of all, And we only asked you to move 15 mins later ! when you arrived late to Venice as your train was delayed and you wouldn't have made it to your tour at 10:45 am on time anyway nor the later tour , you decided not to join the tour. The change is on your end. If you are making up all these lies to get your refund then please rest assure that your refund has already been processed !!!! And we told you you d get a refund. I don't know what else to say when we already told you you d get a refund? The refund takes about 7 business days to process and it s only been 2 days ??!!!!

Wonderful experience. Our leader took us to some great places to eat. I don’t drink and I like how she got me extra food instead of the wine.

We had a great time walking around Venice and trying food and drinks at restaurants we would never have found or paid attention to on our own. Holly was a knowledgeable and friendly guide who gave us lots of tips!

This was an absolutely fantastic tour! We follower our guide around to multiple amazing local restaurants, where we got to sample their best dishes and drink their signature wines. There was sweet, salty, fried, fresh, pasta, seafood—something to satisfy everyone! I felt the price was extremely well worth it. I felt well educated as well as well fed!

We loved this tour! Tiziano was a friendly and engaging host who showed us parts of Venice that we had never seen or experienced. The local foods and wines tasted were all new to us and delicious. The local business owners were also very kind and welcoming. We highly recommend this tour.

Venice Food and Wine

Had a very good time on this tour. Stopped at about four places for small bites and wine, then a place where we sat down for pasta, polenta, anchovies, and wine. Finished with gelato. Fun way to meet people, learn some history about the city, and eat some food.

Great food and wine

It was a great tour, but sadly they changed the time of the tour in the early hours of the morning. This wouldn't have been a problem, but we were a very large group due to being two groups put together and it took longer than expected. This meant I had to leave early as I had another tour booked. Otherwise it was great.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Dear Poppy, thank you for your review. I'm so glad to hear you thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We asked you to change the time was due to the fact that it would rain at that time . We gave you an option to move to another time / date or a full refund, and you chose to move forward with the tour. The tour you were on actually was our average group size these days as we are in the summer: about 15 people. Sometimes the tour might take longer than expected because if every one in the tour is having a great time, and chatting, we didn't want to rush anyone, but definitely if you have somewhere you need to be at certain time, please communicate that with the tour guide and we will get you there on time. Thank you

Holly, our host is very knowledgeable as an ex culinary chef. Takes us to historical and popular places and how to spot a good place to eat that works for Venice and anywhere. Sour sardines and pistachio gelato were the greatest
