Small-Group Florence Food Walking Tour

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Meet at the designated point and meet the rest of the group, and the guide and set off, the first stop was a really cool coffee shop, they take there coffee very seriously here, the owner of the shop gave us a real insight to the different types of beans and roasting, this was a lovely start to the day and we bought even bought the cutest little coffee Percolator, it is bright orange! From there we walked through the city and went to a tiny little shop that sold all things truffle, OMG! The little truffle spread sandwich was amazing.
The food market was next, and we tasted Cheese, wine, olive oil and balsamic this was wonderful, the wine and food was really good, we also looked at all the fresh food, the meat looked amazing. We then went to a local eatery in the market and ate a traditional dish, which was very tasty. Next was a bakery to taste some local fresh bread, it was sort of crusty and salty, we also tasted a liqueur and biscotti type of biscuit. And to finish....gelato! I must say that the Italians really know how to make this icy treat, it is addictive, so good. This was a lovely tour, and I would recommend it if you have the time. A couple of tips, take a map with you to ensure you can find your way back to you accommodation, wear good shoes as you will be walking on cobble stones. The market has a amazing restuarant/eatery up on the second level so if your hungry after the tour, make your way back upstairs and enjoy.

Florence Cheese and Wine Tasting

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Loved this tasting, the sommelier has a real love of local produce and wants to share this with you. The tastings of wine and food are a good size and the way they are matched really enhances the best in both the food and wine. Lovely way to spend time in Florence, and would highly recommend this tour. If I am ever lucky enough to come back, I will defiantly do this tour again.

Murano Glass and Burano Lace Tour from Venice

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a good tour, especially if you have limited time in Venice. The guide was outstanding and gave a really good commentary about each area as we passed. The glass factory was amazing, and even though we didn't buy anything the artistic pieces are well worth a look.
Burano was lovely and the buildings with all there vivid colours were beautiful, the lace is amazing.
On the way back to Venice our guide took the time to recommend places to eat and other sites to see.
Highly recommend this tour.

Bavarian Beer and Food Evening Tour in Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Great way to learn the history of German beer and to enjoy a couple of brews. Beer and food were excellent and Kevin from Texas our tour guide is very knowledgeable. The only part that that I didn't enjoy was the film in the museum, but that is a personal thing, and I am sure some people would enjoy it. The food was very good, at the stop were you had to buy your own beer, and we didn't get into the Hofbrauhaus as it was very full at this that time of night. Would recommend this tour.

Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Small Group Tour from Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was an amazing tour, our guide Steve was very knowledgable, and his commentary was interesting and included stories from some of the survivors that he has spoken to over the years, which gave this tour a insight I was not expecting. The only problem was I was expecting a small group, but this tour had 32 people on it, so a not so small tour. Having said that this tour is defiantly worth doing.

Brussels Beer Tasting Tour

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Really enjoyed this tour, Stefan our guide was very knowledgable. We went down some really small allies that opened up into amazing hidden, bars that we would never have found or experienced if we didn't do this tour. We went to a private apartment to taste some specialty beer and try some matching food, this was a nice touch, and made you feel a bit special. Highly recommend this tour, even if you don't like beer.

Nice tour, informative. While it is advertised as a small group tour, there were several small vans in the group, so while it was not a huge bus, the group was bigger than we expected.

Tapas Evening Walking Tour of Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We meet our guide Maria, at the designated bar, meet the rest of the group and enjoyed the first of the Tapas and wine, we then started walking to the next point. Maria was very knowledgeable and recommended local places to get good food. This was a really good introduction to Barcelona and I am really glad that we did this on the first night as it really orientated the city for us, and highlighted the areas we wanted to visit again. Do this tour your first night in Barcelona!

Loved this tour, my husband and myself were the only two on this day, so a private tour! Marcia was lovely and very knowledgable, and described the history in a interesting way, that bought the area really into perspective. The food samples were lovely and the coffee was very different, but nice. Highly recommend this tour.

Amazing! Loved this tour, my favourite tour in Singapore that we did, during our stay. If we come back, I will want to do this again. The meal at Yum Cha was lovely and you had time to enjoy the meal and trade travel stories with other members of the tour. Then came the highlight, the trishaw ride! Loved it, our rider was 68! Amazing, if your going to Singapore this tour is a must.
