They seemed slightly confused by the voucher we had with getyourguide but eventually sat us down with the diamond menu, the list is pretty small to choose from we ended up getting onion rings for starter, salmon and BBQ combo for our mains and cheesecake/brownie for our desert and honestly the food was nice considering the price of places in venice id recommend especially if you want a meal you know what you're getting. Worth the money for sure

wonderful photographer ! Messua feels exactly what you need. we wanted to have a romantic walk and private gondola ride , but dreamt to keep these memories filmed. She was very polite , discrete - we have many natural photos without posing . It was raining like crazy - still we had great pictures with her - way beyond expectations! Bravo!

The street food tour was 10/10. Learnt so much about Venetian food and drink history and culture. The guide was super knowledgeable and the food was delicious and there was plenty of it. There was not one dish that we did not enjoy and there were loads of options to choose from also. Very good value for money. Would recommend doing!
