Great guide. Great tour!
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.

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

Amazing local food and wine experience with Anna
Aug 2021
We had a private tour on our last day of visting Venice with Anna and she is the best! After some correspondence with Tripadvisor on whether this tour could actually go on (really good to see how well we were informed by the way, kudos to Tripadvisor!!) we were really looking forward to our private culinary tour. Anna is a true Foodie and showed us the small and hidden places that served amazing food and wine. Because our tour was in the morning, everything was superfresh. We relied on Anna's directions and they never disappointed. We have had a excellent local experience that ended with the best gelato in Venice and a selfie with Anna. If you like food, wine and a really friendly and enthousiastic guide, don't hesitate to book this!

Not to be missed tour
Oct 2020 • Couples
We arrived at the church by the Rialto bridge and Anna was waiting for us. We started on time as we introduced each other.

We walked through the market close to the Rialto bridge, although as we were on a later tour, the fish market was over.

First stop was a cichetti bar close by where I had a whipped salted cod open sandwich. Delicious. Anna explained about the history of cichetti, about the reason why certain dishes have been created, while we ate.

We wandered round the narrow streets of San Polo while Anna pointed out buildings, shops, told stories about food, in between each food stop. We visited a few cichetti bars which each had their own specialties. We sampled wines.

We tried prosciutto, ham, cheeses in a small deli and bought a bottle of a heavenly balsamic condiment to take home.

After the savouries came the sweet - cakes, pastries and amazing gelateria.

All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our 3 hour tour and we will do it again if we revisit Venice. A perfect way to experience the city and one definitely to be a DO NOT MISS THIS tour.

Thank you Anna. We had a great time and ate far too much!! 😃

Real Local Venice
Anna was so knowledgable and passionate about all aspects of the tour. A side of Venice an average tourist would never see. As far from St Marks Sq and the tourists traps as you could get. A chance to meet local shop keepers with a real passion for their products. Highly recommended.

Venice 3 hour eating tour
Sep 2020 • Couples
Host Anna was lovely. Friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about the food and drink of Venice. There was a bit too much ‘stuff on bread’ for us and not quite enough to drink (but we are probably ‘above average’ when it comes to having a drink). It was good and I’d recommend it.

Excellent gastronomic tour of the eateries and food shops of Venice, sampling amazing food with full description by the wonderful Anna, Met on time and moved onto a 3 hour trip. Would recommend, we did it at the start of our 4 day trip and then returned later to eat and shop during our stay, thanks Anna

Amazing food!!
We decided to do this tour on the third day of our four day trip to Venice... the only regret we have is that we didn't do it at the start! Anna was fantastic, really friendly and knowledgeable … she took us to some real hidden gems, if only we had time to visit them all again! It was just two of us on the tour with Anna, we were expecting a larger group but from what I gather there are usually around 10-15 people so i'm guessing there are just less people visiting at the moment. It was actually so valuable to have the 1:1 experience and Anna was so lovely! The food and wine were also AMAZING! We would definitely recommend booking this tour!
