“Totally non-touristy day. A must for anyone wanting to get off the beaten track.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

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.

“Great guide, great food, wonderful wines, and brilliant insight into local customs.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

Elizabetha was a great guide. Entertaining and informative. We did this the evening we arrived and went back to 2 of the places the next day for more food and wine, as we enjoyed it that much. It's both a history, tradition, food, wine and cultural education. Great value.

“Chichetti Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

This is my second time to participate in the Urban Adventures Chichetti tour of Venice. I was so impressed the first time, that I scheduled it for a large group that I was leading (36 in total). Every moment of the experience was amazing from the planning and coordination of 3 smaller walking groups to the tour guides, food, and wine! We learned so much more about Venice that we were able to use on the remaining days of our visit (kegs of wine that can fill water bottles anyone?) and were too full to consider dinner that evening. Salute!

Dear Cheryl,

Thank you so much for your great review!

We are really happy to read you enjoyed the Cicchetti & Wine tour even in your second time on it!

We are also glad to see you apreciate all the organisation in the large group number of people that evening. We wanted to make sure everyone enjoyed it without bothering the local people and the small venues, we got it properly!

We hope to see you back again in the future!

Kind Regards from the entire Venice Urban Adventures team.

“Chichetti, wine and great host”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

The food and wine tour in Venice was a wonderful way to get off the real tourist area and experience local culture. Elizabeth (sorry if not correct) was a tremendous informative and fun guide
