Good
The tour was fun because we had a fun group, but I am not sure I would recommend it to others. The itnerary when we booked this stated that we would go to 5 locations and we only went to 4 (the pasta part was skipped). To me, it seemed like we missed it because our tour guide didn't move us along at some of the previous stops. Our group was very chatty, which was fun, but our tour guide could have told us it was time to move on so we did not miss the stop. To be honest, the missed pasta meal was not even mentioned by the tour guide at all, so I am not sure if it was skipped due to time or it was closed or something. Regardless, it just like didn't happen and nothing was said about it. All of a sudden we were eating gelato and it was over. Also the food was not that remarkable and I did not learn very much (just about Select Spritzs which I really liked). The food was fine, but we found better chiccheti on our own.

Our tour guide Luda is from Venice and took us to amazing places for cicchetti. She also gave a list of recommendations for osterias and it did not disappoint!

The food tour by Devour Tours was overall enjoyable. Orsola was a great tour guide. Very personable and knowledgable. The food was quite rich and it was hard to enjoy the food at the end of the tour because of how rich the food was from the beginning - but for some this may not be an issue!

Our Venice at Sunset tour was fantastic. We tried a variety of food and drink while being told about the history of the areas we dined in. Our guide Jennifer was great and very knowledgeable of the city!
