I booked the tour to treat my two 80-year old aunts - big foodies and we enjoyed ourselves to the fullest. The places we visited, the tour guide's wealth of (cheeky) information, the quality and quantity of the food and booze offered and the composition of the group itself. It was simply wonderful....

This was such a fun tour with Ludo! We did food tours in Rome and Florence and were beginning to wonder if a third food tour on the same trip to Italy would be too much. We were so glad we did it. The food was great and well organized at each stop. We really liked learning the history behind each stop along with other tips and suggestions to make our stay in Venice more meaningful. I would highly recommend the market tour!!
