We had a great tour. Ludo, our tour guide, was more than helpful. She not only explained some of the history of venice but also recommended places to eat and drink along the way and gave specific tipps on where to eat outside the scope of the tour. The tour was adapted for my vegetarian needs and I received extra information on where to eat great vegetarian food in venice. I recommend the tour, especially with Ludo as a guide.

Barbara, our guide, was amazing! She was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and such a great host to introduce us to the Venetian culture. The food was amazing — hands down my favorite part of my time in Venice.

The North Marais food tour in Paris is great! Our guide, Stephanie, made it even more special. She was knowledgeable, engaging and patient throughout the tour. We moved at a leisurely pace while enjoying generous and delicious tastings at every stop. Stephanie also provided great recommendations for our stay in Paris. You’ll definitely appreciate this Paris by Mouth has tour!

We loved our food and drinks walking tour of Venice! Our guide, Ludovica, was a gem and made us feel like we were friends from out-of-town. We loved the variety of venues, food and drinks and appreciated learning about the different types of restaurants and food traditions. Highly recommended.

Thank you to Barbara for showing us around your beautiful Venice! It was a pleasure to hear how much she loves her city, learning about Venetian culture, her family and history from someone who has a passion for what she does. The food, spots we stopped at were perfect and finishing off with desert and the view over the water watching the sun go down was a great end. We would recommend this to anyone!
