Scrummy food, delicious drink & informative tour

This was a fantastic way to start our visit to Venice. We did it on our first day, in the hopes that we would get recommendations of food and places to try whilst we were staying. And we certainly did. The tour is very informative about the history of food in Venice and also about Venice itself. Just make sure not to each much for breakfast, as within 10 minutes of the tour starting you're having your first bite to eat and first Spritz!! We had a great selection of food to try, and was great to have a local take us round the food markets and give us some insight into them and also how Venetians eat, and why they tend to eat small plates. Our tour guide was wonderful and happy to answer all questions that were posed to her. This is a great tour, and I would highly recommend it.

A thoughtful overview of the Rialto Market and the Cecchetti shops around it. Kristina was our guide and she was passionate but easy to understand. We left with full bellies and smiles on our faces.

Great tour, obviously eat and drank plenty of fantastic food and wine. But it was very interesting as we got to understand about the culture of the city and the people there. Also got to see parts of the city which we would never have found if on our own. The markets were brilliant. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and easy to understand.

Our tour started in the rain but that didn't dampen our spirits. Christina knew all the secret spots and was friendly with the vendors in the market. The food, its history and the wine samplings all added to a great tour. I only wish that we had more time .

Barbara was so enthusiastic about her city. There were just three of us so we really got an intimate detailed tour. The restaurant chosen for our lunch was wonderfully quaint. It's a great way to see and taste Venice.
