This tour was not at all what we expected. This is more like a bus ride to Cortona and Montepulciano, with not so good food samples. My husband and I made the most of it, because we were already there but in hindsight, we should have enjoyed our last day in Rome walking around. There was no food tour. It was just a sampling at the restuarant prior to lunch, with three pieces of bruschetta, a piece of cheese, and a tiny glass of wine. If you're looking for a food tour then I would recommend the Rome Food Walking Tour. The wine stop in Montepulciano was a brief 30 mins. Overall this was not worth the time or money.
My husband and I LOVED this tour and our tour guide Alexandra! This was the perfect way to start our vacation in Italy. The food was amazing and I was excited that some of the place and food food featured, I had seen on Anthony Bourdain's The Layover. Our guide gave us the ins and outs of REAL local food, the difference between really good gelato, bad gelato, Roman cuisine, and Tuscan cuisine. We would recommend this tour to anyone. It was worth the money and the time.
