“This tour is a MUST do!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2012

Previous reviewers are absolutely correct. You should do this tour the first night you arrive in Venice. Cecelia is fantastic. She has traveled extensively and lived in a number of places around the world. An interesting piece of information regarding her tour, her father is a sommelier and she has already passed the first test to become one herself! Her knowledge of food and wine was matched by her knowledge about the city. Cecelia takes you to a number of different sections of Venice and offers advice in getting around. You will finish this tour full of wine, cichetti and practical knowledge about visiting Venice. We enjoyed Cecelia so much that we spent an hour talking to her after the tour!

“Fantastic! Do this before you do any other trip.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2012

Cecilia makes Venice even more awesome than it already is. She knows the city inside out and her love for this adopted city is obvious as she takes you around and plies you with delicious food and wine.

We learned so much about Venice and Italy and the local food and wine and culture from her and had a fantastic evening.

Such great value for money and I can't think of a better way (or better local) to spend an evening with in this beautiful city.

Book this tour NOW! I loved it so much that I'm writing this review right after our tour with her earlier today!

“A must do tour for your first night in Venice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2012

I would highly recommend one of these tours for anyone that hasn't been to Venice before. We did the Chicetti and wine tour which took us off the tourist track to restaurants and bars where the locals go. This is a great way to see the city and plan where you want dine for the rest of your trip without being stung!

“When in Venice, take the opportunity to be a "Venetian" for a night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

My husband and I took the Cicchetti tour with Cecilia- we ended up being the only guests on the tour and it was hands down the best tour of our trip! Cecilia was very knowledgable and shows a true love of her adopted city! Take this tour on your first night in Venice- that way you can go back to the places she takes you and/or recommended sites! We enjoyed all the "bites" of food and wine- we didn't even have room for dinner after the tour. Cecilia took us to 6 total cicchetti and made sure we knew how to get back to our hotel in the foggy streets of Venice. Can't say enough good things about this tour- you won't regret it and really do get to see how Venetians relax!

“Pick this Cicchetti tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2011

We selected the Cicchetti tour by Urban Adventures after extensive research on the internet of other tour operators. This tour offered the best value for money at Euro 35 per pax, and we were able to get a 10% discount by visiting their Facebook page. Although it was a saturday, we were the only persons on the tour that day and got our own personal tour guide, Giulia. Our advice is to book this tour the first night that you arrive in Venice for an introduction to various bars and restaurants which you can later return to, if you're staying for more days in Venice. We visited 5 bars, and got to try a drink and an appetizer at each bar. The tour lasted for about 2 hours, and involves a air bit of walking. It's a wonderful way to try out different foods and drinks which we otherwise wouldn't have known about.
