    Anna our guide was absolutely wonderful. She really took her time to pick out the very best places for us to visit and eat. I highly recommend her and this tour.

    Our guide Anna was a fountain of information on this excellent guide to Venetian food and wine. The tour represented excellent value for money and is highly recommended.

    Fabulous and delicious! Every stop we made I would go back to and eat there again! Excellent tour guide (Anna) took time to answer all our questions about the food, culture, and history. Very well rounded food selection including wines and liquors. Definitely recommend!!!

    Excellent guide called Hollie. Food and wines excellent. The risotto was out of this world. Good crowd with us

    Wonderful tour! This was an excellent experience; we had seven stops along the way with amazing food and wine throughout. Our tour guide Anna was excellent and went out of her way to make sure everyone in the group was happy. All the food was incredible and there was plenty of it so be sure to come hungry.

    This is a great trip and we would thoroughly recommend - our guide, Anna, was wonderful and made the experience very memorable. We were expecting a little more general information about Venice and its history (as this is what we’ve come to expect having done similar food-themed tours in other cities) - our misunderstanding given the tour description. Good mix of samples - you won’t end the tour hungry! - and interesting insight into Venetian food culture. Enjoy!

    Anna was a wonderful guide who took us to some wonderful establishments. We were in a group of only five and tried a variety of beautiful cicchetti and drinks. We were able to make our own choices of what we would like to try to eat at some of the bars. My tip would be not to eat a big lunch if you are going in the evening like we did as you get surprisingly full!
    We went on a Saturday so most places were extremely busy, Anna was still able to get us in and clearly had good relationships with the people that work there. Completely worth the money, I would certainly do it again!

    The guide Anna was very nice and passionate. She tried to let us taste as many as possible. And the whole tour was arranged very well. All of us were very enjoyable.
