This tour was fabulous! My husband and I were the only ones on tour, so ended up with a private tour from Linda. We went to some great spots, that we would never have found on our own - all very different from each other. Linda also pointed out the sites along the way as well as collecting the business cards of all the places we went to, as well as some of her recommendations along the way - so that we could find on our own.

We had some amazing aperitivo and tasty snacks at some amazing local hangouts and hidden away places. Linda even sent us an email with other recommendations for other places that we visited throughout Italy.

Great host, great city and tour. I highly recommend this tour!

We met our tour guide Linda who was fantastic at Piazza della Repubblica. The directions to the meeting spot were very accurate and Linda was right on time wearing her identifying lanyard. Our tour ended up being very private- it was supposed to be a small group but I guess no one else signed up. Linda walked us to the 3 sites- at each site she helped us order a snack and drink based on our preferences. The tour includes these purchases so Linda would just handle the interchange with the vendor- to get the most Authentic/Local experience we just let Linda select our items for us. At our first stop we went to a tiny store that was established in 1875 and we had some red wine and Crustinis with unique toppings- DELICIOUS, second stop was a rooftop terrace with beautiful views, there we had traditional cocktails Negroni and Aperol Spritz, the final stop was at a winery storefront owned a one of the oldest wine families in Florence- there we had some prosecco and truffle sandwiches.

The food and drink were great, but the real value in this tour is the guide: Linda. Throughout the entire tour she would talk to us about everything Florence, from the architecture, to the history, to current/pop-culture facts, to information about the locals, to tips on what souvenirs to buy where. No question was off-limits, Linda was very friendly, fun and knowledgeable also spoke perfect English- so do not worry about communication. Linda even went out of her way to help us a couple days later when we had an issue with an un-related tour in Rome.

This tour was a perfect way for us to explore and get to know Florence. We truly were surprised by this experience and highly recommend it. Wear comfy shoes, plan on a 2.5-3 hour experience, bring a camera. Enjoy!!!

Really enjoyed this tour! It felt like going with a friend who was taking us to her favourite local places and getting us to taste great food and wine! Definitely recommend it!

This was by far my favourite tour in our trip. Our guide was from Australia but has been living in Italy for many many years. My friend and myself arent wine drinkers so Linda catered the tour to more of a food tour for us which was brilliant. I have to say it made us so much more confident going into bars and small foodie places as we were able to experience how it all works. This is a big MUST on anyone's list!!!!!!

Great tour. Our group was very small and our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about Florence, food and wine! Amazing. She took us to different places that are mainly visited by locals. Really good tour!

Although we were the only ones on the tour, it was so worth it! We went to fantastic rooftop restaurants, sampled drinks and had snacks. A great intro night to Florence

Adrienne was a very knowledgable guide. She gave us a lot of good information, including some cooking suggestions, restaurant recommendations and a tip on where to find the best gelato. All good advice! The walk along the Arno River was nice and went at a relaxed pace. Had some excellent sangiovese at Il Borro.

Very knowledgable and friendly guide.

We were taken off the beaten path into some wonderful small bars and were served some excellent local foods and wines.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

Guide was excellent! Tour was weak. Stayed too long on second stop...served crackers and wine. So many interesting sites could have been added to this tour.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this

We unfortunately did not get to do this tour because the Uffizi tour went linger than anticipated. When we attempted to get in contact with contact number provided to us for this aperitvo tour we never heard a response back.
