I have not stopped raving about the Florence Gourmet Food Tour! We had a very small group which allowed for personal interaction with our phenomenal guide. The tour was a wonderful blend of historical tidbits and delicious gourmet bites from local artisan shops; places we would not have discovered on our own. I enjoyed learning about truffles, olive oil, and Florence's ancient wine "drive through system". It was a brilliantly conceived tour!
The. Best. Tour. In. Florence.
Our guide was amazing, the food was spectacular, and it really gave us a good foundation for how/where to eat for the rest of the trip. I highly highly recommend this to everyone that goes to Florence.
Without a doubt this was the hi-lite of our trip. Linda was super knowledgeable and fun. My husband and tours don't usually mix but he had a blast, and didn't want it to end. What more can I say.
our guide Linda was very informative and we enjoyed it very much
Great tour! Interesting, informative, fun guide and most important tasty!
Our guide Adrienne was very well informed and had a wide knowledge of Italian food and wine.
We learned a lot about regional differences in food and the customs involved etc.
The tasting of all the different delicacies was fantastic, such delicious flavours!
It was a bonus that she also had a pretty substantial knowledge of the general history of Florence too, giving us lots of miscellaneous facts and pointing out details on buildings we may have missed as we went from one place to another.
The group consisted of just me and my partner which was great and apparently the groups are kept to a minimum anyway, which is more practical as the the shops we went to were very quaint and small which would have made it a tight squeeze had there been more than 6 of us.
We couldn't resist buying some of the produce we tasted, the Olive oils and Balsamic vinegars were particularly good. All the shopkeepers were charming.
This is a mini tour not to be missed, made all the better by our fantastic guide.
This tour exceeded our expectations. It included a nice walking tour of some smaller streets of the city we had never seen, multiple stops at wonderful little shops and great food. I particularly enjoyed a private chat I had with a butcher while tasting different meats.
The guide was so knowledgable and friendly, this was our favorite tour!
EXCELLENT - We had a private tour guide and she was excellent! She walked us all over Florence and we tasted yummy foods while learning about the culture and history of Florence. Would highly recommend this tour it anyone I took my two daughers 18 and 22 and they loved our guide's info.. It was the highlight of our 18 day trip to Italy....
This was lots of fun. Our guide was very knowledgeable and planned our tour to include tastes of Florence including information about locally grown food. Thins was a great way to spend an afternoon and learn more about the local food and wine preferences.
We thoughly enjoyed this tour. It was a great mixture of historical, foodie and quirky bits of information. It was interesting to go arouddn the city learnign about its "food history" and sampling a great vareity of food, from traditional baked goods, to oils, gelato, cheese and truffles (both the chocolate and the fungus type). the tour guide had a good knowledge of not only Italian food but the history of Florenece in general. This tour was one of the highlights for our 12 year old daughter.
This was a great way to explore Venice. Our tour guide was not the greatest but the tour itself was wonderful.
