'Cocktail and Ghosts'

The evening of wine and snacks in three locations was great fun. The ghost tour, not so. We actually departed early when the stories did not prove too interesting, especially since we had to return to the Hotel in the late, rainy evening.


Wine and snacks delicious and fun and the Guide was very capable and friendly.


Ghosts not very scary, or interesting. Guide not very welcoming or friendly. Getting around unfamiliar Venice on our first night in the rain and darkness was intimidating and difficult.

Dear Nancy,

we are pleased you enjoyed the first part of the tour but sorry you didn't appreciate the second one. Maybe the bad weather prevented you from enjoying the whole experience…

Best regards,

'Not very indicative of actual experience'

We went on a food tour in Rome that was a far better experience than the one we had in Venice. Food was not really the focus of this tour. We had three small appetizers in one place and one small appetizer in another. All in all not good value for the money and certainly not a tour I would recommend to others. Also not sure where ghost stories came into the tour.

After your review we contacted our staff to verify what happened on the day you were supposed to take part in the tour and they assured us that the tour took place exactly as described on the product page on "in the first part of the tour you visit three typical venetian bars to taste a glass of wine and a small appetizer per each bar; during the second part of the tour the guide accompany you in a mysteries and ghosts guided walk through the lesser known areas of Venice". We are sorry you did not enjoy the tour!

'Venetian Aperitivo and tour'

This tour is good if you wish to experience the atmosphere of Venetian 'aperitivo time' and be around locals. We enjoyed wine in three wine bars and then started a ghost tour of Venice, which was interesting. We went to less crowded areas and I appreciated this choice. Booking was easy and the guide very nice.

'Bad food and crowded tour'

The food and wine portion of the night is advertised as follows "The Venice food walking tour begins with one of the best cocktails in Venice. During this food tour of Venice, Italy you will be accompanied in three typical Venetian wine bars where you can sample delicious Cicchetti - crostini, meatballs and other small typical Venetian cuisine that traditionally accompany the aperitif - and take part in three different wine tasting in Venice." First we did not have a single cocktail so the tour definately did not begin with one. We did go to three wine bars but at each of the first two we were given bread topped with stock fish and in the third a calamari skewer. It was really disappointing. We did try three glasses of wine, but our tour guide although interesting from a history perspective, was not a food and wine expert so the tasing experience was left to discuss amongst yourselves and even if you liked someting (which I doubt you will) you wouldn't know what you were drinking. Then the legends and mysteries portion of the tour began. The tour was very crowded 20ish. Our tour guide called her boss to try to get another guide to meet us and split the group, but her boss didn't answer so there was nothing she could do. Then because she was expecting her boss she answered her phone more than once on the tour. She wanted to split the tour becasue this isn't one of those tours where the guide talks into a microphone any everyone gets a headset it is just everyone crowding around and trying to listen. Becasue of where the tour starts it is impossible to hear. So you miss the first part of the tour. Then the tour goes down more residential streets so it would be possible to hear her, but she was trying to respect the quiet of neighborhood so much of what she said we were not able to hear. I am not kidding you when I say by the end of the tour half of the group had dropped out. It was so bad.

Dear MPralle,

we are sorry you did not enjoy the tour. Anyway both on the schedule details of the tour (Inclusions) and on the textual description of the tour it is clearly indicated what is included in the food and wine portion of the tour ‘Visit to three Venice bars with one glass of wine and 1 'cicchetto' per person for each bar’. We are sorry you missed this important information. As for the criticism about the second part of the tour, unfortunately you happened to do it during peak days in Venice and therefore the group was larger than usual... The guide tried to do her best using the time at her disposal! We are sorry you had different expectations about it, however, we thank you for your review as it might help us to improve our services.

Best regards,
The staff
