    Stop: 3 hours
    There are 8 stops on this tour with plenty of food to make sure you do not need breakfast nor dinner. You will start your day with some coffee, like the Italians do. Venice has a tradition that goes a long way back in time in making tasty pastries, and you will get to try some of the heavenly delicious pastries that the Venetian has to offer. After your sweet tooth has been satisfied, stroll through some wine bars and savor typical Venetian drinks accompanied by the famous cicchetti. Try 5-6 different types of fish and learn how each dish is created. Even Venice is known for seafood dishes, there are some delicious local cured meat that you have to try too! Then go to the backstreet, visit the oldest bar, find out where the famous lover in history used to frequent and of course try their signature dish. After that, crawl your way to get some traditional Venetian cookies and learn why they are so good, and the tour will end with some authentic gelato! During this gelato stop, the guide will explain how to identify good quality gelato shops even in a middle of a touristy place. The wonderful food provided on the the tour are all in season to make sure all of our clients try the freshest recipes.  (On Tuesday morning, and Saturday afternoon tour, or on a special holiday there is a possibility that there would be no risotto, but we will replace it with another local favourite or dish of the day!)

We came hungry and we left hungry. Aside from a very expensive history lesson by a very knowledgeable guide there is not much good can be said about this lack of "foodie" tour. Also the time we booked it for was canceled and we had to schedule for the next day. Changing all our plans. The food and wine offered was minimal, underwhelming. And likely didn’t amount to over 20 Euro per person. This should be advertised as a historical guide to Venice with some food and wine tastings. And charge half the price. Overall a giant disappointment for the Money.

Dear Rick, I am so very sorry that you still feel hungry after the tour. We always ask you on the tour if you are full, and will offer extra food. This says on your voucher. With dinner or lunch included in the 7 or 8 stops , with wine alone , if you can find a company offer for less in Venice, we can fully refund you. Venice is an expensive city. And for you , and others reading the review, if you were still hungry after our last stop, we offer more food always if you can eat more and most of our reviews , as you see, customers are really full

After rereading the other reviews I think the guide can make or break the experience. We have done food tours in other cities in Italy and been impressed. This one was disappointing. Our guide was a gentleman who seemed to be going through the motions as he ushered us in and out of places. The portions were small and the explanations pretty basic - along the lines of here’s some sweet salami and 24 mo cheese. No introduction to the shop owners, no explanation about what’s special about the single slice of salami or pebble size piece of cheese we were offered. At the restaurants it seemed no one was expecting our group. The pasta con vongole was ok but we could have done just as well finding similar food on our own and asking a waiter who cared about their food. I think this tour would be a different experience if you get one of the guides others rave about…,

This tour was so nice, thank you Anna for the helpful insights and tips for the Venetian cuisine! The timing, pace and amount of food were just perfect, it was such a good start of our Venice experience. We went back to some of the places to try more of the available cicchettis and it was such a yummy choice. We definitely recommend it!

My husband didn’t have his EU Covid pass so he couldn’t eat inside any of the restaurants - ensure you have your EU covid pass. We had our 6 year old with us, and that was manageable. I would say this is family friendly. The stop times felt a little rushed to me but the food and wine were delicious. We were supposed to have the tour on Friday but the company messaged us and asked if we could do it another day - luckily we didn’t have plans for the following day and it worked out.

We had a wonderful time learning the history of Venice and experiencing Venice through the eyes of a local. We sampled a variety of Venice cuisine and were able to ask lots of questions during the tour. It was equal parts history and food and was the perfect length of time.

Anna was so awesome. We booked this tour the night before and everything went smoothly! She knows so much about the local cuisine and everything we ate was absolutely delicious. I cannot stop thinking about it! If you want to truly experience fr Venetian food, book this tour and request Anna!

The food choices are excellent. It is a great thing to do early in the trip so you can learn what to look for in the rest of the stay. The history about the local food and traditions complements the food experience.

Great tour! Small group. Super friendly and informative guide. Stopped at 5 or six places, with food at all & a wine pairing at most. I really liked our guide, and I learned a lot too! Totally recommend.

We highly recommend this tour! It exceeded our expectations. Our guide, Guido, was knowledgeable and friendly. We tasted wonderful wines and great food. We went to local places we never would have found on our own.

So much fun!!

Also a great value for the price of the tour.

Anna was great. Enough food you don’t need dinner, lots of wine. About half of the savory food was seafood, everything was delicious.
