icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
Dear Sofia_B, Thanks for writing us a review. First of all, I would like to say how sorry I am to know you did not take the tour with us. I have checked the tour date and I can confirm the tour went ahead with other people that joined the guide. As your booking is marked as a no-show, it means you did not check in with the guide at the meeting point. We would like to investigate further and find out if you were at the correct meeting point at the correct time. Please contact us at feedback@devourtours.com. We can always reschedule your tour for another date. Even when our clients miss their tours, we try our best to offer alternative options. Thanks again. Kind regards, Jhonas.

Great value and interesting tour plus lovely food
Robert_S

We wanted to understand more about the food history of Venice and this tour was amazing. A lovely mix of history, food and locations within Rialto, st marks and cannaregio. The story of Chichetti and Tramaezzeni as well as spritz and cuttlefish ink were all fold while eating the goodies. The inclusion of a gondola traghetto ferry ride from Rialto over to Cannaregio was a great way of experiencing a gondola. Our guide was informative and very good.

Scrummy food, delicious drink & informative tour
Bev_L
, Oct 2019
This was a fantastic way to start our visit to Venice. We did it on our first day, in the hopes that we would get recommendations of food and places to try whilst we were staying. And we certainly did. The tour is very informative about the history of food in Venice and also about Venice itself. Just make sure not to each much for breakfast, as within 10 minutes of the tour starting you're having your first bite to eat and first Spritz!! We had a great selection of food to try, and was great to have a local take us round the food markets and give us some insight into them and also how Venetians eat, and why they tend to eat small plates. Our tour guide was wonderful and happy to answer all questions that were posed to her. This is a great tour, and I would highly recommend it.

A thoughtful overview of the Rialto Market and the Cecchetti shops around it. Kristina was our guide and she was passionate but easy to understand. We left with full bellies and smiles on our faces.

Venice Food Tour Including Rialto Market and Cicchetti

Great tour, obviously eat and drank plenty of fantastic food and wine. But it was very interesting as we got to understand about the culture of the city and the people there. Also got to see parts of the city which we would never have found if on our own. The markets were brilliant. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and easy to understand.

Our tour started in the rain but that didn't dampen our spirits. Christina knew all the secret spots and was friendly with the vendors in the market. The food, its history and the wine samplings all added to a great tour. I only wish that we had more time .

We loved this tour, despite the intense heat and humidity. Francesca, our guide, was wonderful, giving us an historical overview before beginning the tour. Be prepared to eat a lot of food as there are several cicchetti for each person at each stop, followed by a pasta lunch! My only wish is actually that there had been a bit more variety of cicchetti as I'd rather taste smaller portions of more types. This was a nice, intimate tour with only 4 couples and as it turned out, one was newly engaged, one was newly married, we were celebrating our 20th anniversary, and the other couple was celebrating their 30th:-. I definitely recommend this tour and like we did, you might want to consider skipping dinner that night!

What a great tour -- I think it is new for Viator -- and I hope they keep it! Our guide, Christina, was so knowledgeable about Venice and clearly loves her city very much. Her passion for Venice and for its food and its people was infectious. She was very much fun, had a wonderful connection with the sellers at the fish and fruit/vegetable market, and answered every question! And then there was the food! What a great way to learn about some of Venice's secret culinary treasures and see part of the city as well! Would highly recommend this tour!

Für das gebotene war diese Tor zu teuer. Die Führerin hat sehr viel erzählt, hatte dadurch aber ein zeitliches Problem. Der für das abschließende Mittagessen reservierte Tisch war bereits belegt, daraus folgend eine längere Wartezeit auf das Mittagessen. Das kann man sicherlich besser organisieren.
