This was the highlight of our trip to Italy! Antonio was our guide and he is incredibly knowledgeable. Every place we visited was extremely interesting and welcoming. We went to many places - coffee, truffles, oils and vinegars, wines, cheeses -- it was a fabulous adventure, and went way beyond my very high expectations!!!

Fantastic tour. Feda is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. Learnt a lot about the food and drinks we tasted. Would have been better to do it at the start of stay in Florence, due to the local knowledge gained from this tour. Would highly recommend.

Benedetta was a great guide. We had a jam packed tour of culinary delights mingled in with facts about life in Florence. We were so full by the end - having eaten and drunk at every stop - but we still managed the gelato! Great tour, great value for money and so glad we did it - even my reluctant husband...

Antonio, our guide, was fantastic. The tour was fascinating, even for a non coffee drinker at the first stop. Each stop host was enjoyable to listen to and did an excellent job communicating. Well worth the time and a great introduction to the city of Florence.
