Excellent tour for local immersion
July 30, 2019
A ‘’must do’ if you wish to experience local culture, history and cuisine! Our tour guide was highly knowledgeable, personable and engaging and led us to local eateries that allowed us to experience the hospitality and taste the gourmet specialties of the region.

Amazing tour. We booked this for the evening that we docked at port. It allowed for a nice introduction to Venice. We followed it up with the ghost tour which really filled out the evening and gave us a taste of Venice. The wines and tapas we had were wonderful. I was surprised with how generous the helpings of tapas were. I was so full at the end of it.

This tour was fabulous and the guide was very good. A map would have been helpful to find our way back to the places visited.

Best. Tour. Ever

Do this tour! We had an excellent guide, Manola, who made this tour fun, interactive and enjoyable. We were two people who were put into a group of ten. We went to 5 different taverns where we had a glass of wine and something light to eat. All the taverns were locally owned and "off the beaten path." The wine was quite good. We did a practice walk to the meeting point the morning of the tour as it is a little hard to find. We had to stop and ask along the way to make sure we were going in the right direction. We thought this was one of the highlights of our time in Venice. We met some really engaging people on the tour, learned a lot of local history and about day-to-day life, and got to experience some neighborhood taverns we would not likely have found on our own. Really fun!
Great way to tour Venice

Our guide Giovanni was terrific. Walking around with her was so informative. The Bars and taverns were better than I expected, with there offerings of Cicchetti and wines. Loved it, and strongly recommend this tour.

October 2016 -We chose this tour to get a real feel for the local vibe in Venice. We are delighted to say that our Tour Guide did a great job! She was warm, kind and really pleasant. The various places we visited were just amazing! The history and the pleasant food tastings in each Bar and Tavern are really great fun! We would highly recommend this tour to all!

authentic and interesting

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the informative tour of tapas resto-bars of Venice. It was an authentic view of how locals live, eat and drink by a resident of Venice. It was was much more interesting than the usual touristy excursions and we highly recommend it.

We thoroughly enjoyed getting to visit the bars frequented by the locals. Tasting the different wines and enjoying tasting the treats they provided made this a most wonderful side trip. Would certainly recommend it. Our guide was super.

This was absolutely the best. I would recommend this tour to all that visit Venice. We had a great group of people and after a few glasses of wine they all were our NBF. Our tour guide was the Best, she took her time with all of us and really got us away from some of the very crowded areas and into the were the locals go
