  • Your Venice Food Tour with Tastings Begins!
    _WIT2612 Venice can make a fantastic break from the usual pizza-and-pasta gastronomy of Italy, but with so many touristy restaurants on the island, it can be hard to make the most of Venetian cuisine and wine on your own. Let a local insider help!
  • Rialto Market
    _WIT2676 This is where Venetians have been buying their food for centuries, the same way you will today! Plunging into the vibrant Rialto fruit and vegetable market, you’ll learn how to shop like the Venetians do, recognizing which produce is in season and fresh.
  • Rialto Fish Market
    _WIT2577 This is where the best seafood restaurants in Venice buy their fish daily. Your local expert will point out the kinds you can’t get at home; show you how to determine if a fish is really fresh; and answer any questions you might have.
  • Culinary stops
    _WIT3073 including
    · Four cicchetti of your choice
    · Three glasses of wine/prosecco/spritz
    · One fritti to go
    · Pasta lunch

  • Gondola ride across the Grand Canal to Cannaregio.
    _WIT3021 Once known as the Jewish Ghetto and surrounded by walls to keep residents in, Cannaregio is a favorite among locals today for its great food scene, beautiful streets, away from the tourist route.

FAQ
Expand all
If it rains, or if there is “acqua alta” (high water), will my tour still run?
  • Yes! All Walks of Italy services will run, rain or shine. On some very rare occasions, when the weather is particularly dramatic, some sites may be closed. In these cases we will try to contact you in advance, where possible.
Can you accommodate my dietary requirements?
  • For those with food allergies or other special requirements, please notify us prior at the time of booking and then again, as soon as you meet your tour guide. We will do our very best to accommodate you and find suitable alternatives.
What languages are your tours conducted in?
  • English. This tour does not operate in multi-language, which means you’ll never have to wait for translations.
How will I recognize my tour guide?
  • Either your tour guide or a tour coordinator will be waiting at the tour meeting point 15 minutes before your tour start time. They will be holding up a sign with the Walks of Italy logo on it.
What If I’m running late to my tour?
  • We ask all guests to arrive at the tour meeting point at least 15 minutes before the scheduled start time of their tour. If you have difficulty finding the meeting point or are delayed along the way, please call the emergency phone number, (Italy) +39-069-480-4888 not the regular customer service number.
How far in advance should I book my tour?
  • It’s hard to say. We recommend booking as soon as you can as these services often sell out in advance and have limited-availability. If you know what tour you want to book though, we would always say to book as soon as you can.
The tour description says tour is 'all-inclusive'. What does that mean?
  • It means the tour price listed on our website includes all ticket, reservation and entrance fees. There won’t be any nasty surprises on the day of your tour, so you could leave your wallet at home (unless you felt like tipping your tour guide).
Do you accept last-minute bookings?
  • When we have space! Check the website for availability first. If you can’t find what you’re looking for there is a chance that it's sold out or it may just be off-sale because it's within a day or two of tour running time.
Should I tip my tour guide?
  • It’s really up to you. If you enjoyed your tour and feel like you received exemplary service from your guide, it is customary to leave a tip at the end of the tour. It’s not obligatory though and we won’t hold it against you if you don't – nor will your guide.
Can I take your tours if I have walking difficulties or require a wheelchair?
  • Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate wheelchairs on most of our group tours for a variety reasons. That said, in most cases we can serve wheelchair users on our private tours, to allow the guide to adapt the route to their particular requirements. Please get in touch with us before you book, however, and be aware that guests are responsible for propelling their own chairs – guides will be unable to do this.
I am traveling with a small child – can I bring a stroller with me?
  • Not on all tours. Please get in touch with our us before bringing a stroller on your tour. Some sites will not allow you to bring a stroller inside and we may not have suitable storage options. If you let us know in advance we can help you to arrange a suitable solution.
What should I bring on my tour?
  • We recommend all customers bring photo ID with their date of birth listed plus the confirmation voucher. For all tours involving walking, we would recommend that you wear comfortable shoes. If you’re visiting in warm weather (May – Sep) we recommend that you bring sunscreen, a bottle of water (which you can refill along the way) and a hat. During the cooler months we would recommend that you bring a coat and possibly a rain jacket and/or umbrella.
It’s raining, is my tour still running?
  • Yes! The tours run rain or shine. On some very rare occasions, when the weather is particularly dramatic, some outdoor sites may be closed. On these occasions we will try to contact you in advance, where we have warning.
What’s the difference between a ‘group’ and a ‘private’ tour?
  • A group tour is one where you join a group of other travellers and a single guide – our groups are usually around 12 people, although they can be a little larger, particularly on day trips. Because our groups are so small, you’ll still find it easy to hear and interact with your guide and it's more effective than a private tour, which is when you pay to have your own personal tour guide (and/or transfer) just for you.
If it rains, or if there is “acqua alta” (high water), will my tour still run?
  • Yes! Food Walking Tour of Venice plus Rialto Market & Cicchetti Tasting with Wine will run, rain or shine. On some very rare occasions, when the weather is particularly dramatic, some sites may be closed. In these cases we will try to contact you in advance, where possible.
Is your Venice Food Tour suitable for people with dietary requirements?
  • With enough notice, the guide can tailor the Venice Food Tour to suit most dietary requirements, although this tour is not suitable at all for coeliacs. Please advise at time of booking to allow the guide to prepare. While the guide will do their best to accommodate guests with food preferences or allergies, please note that it will not always be possible to make a substitution, so that guest may enjoy fewer tastings than others. As you are visiting local businesses, they cannot guarantee that there may not be traces of some ingredients. If you have a very severe allergy, we recommend that you do not take our food tour and that you are particularly careful in Italy, where food is often not marked clearly.
