Our tour guide, Bene, did a fabulous job and gave us great insight into the way Italians eat. Because we did this tour we were able to discover things we wouldn't have been able to find otherwise. I highly recommend this tour to anyone.
This was a really fun tour and a great introduction to the local food culture. We got to sample a number of tasty food and beverage items...I went back to several of the shops afterward for wine and other goodies. Valentina was a knowledgeable, enthusiastic guide!
Great tour guide - very knowledgeable and humorous. Small group which enhanced the experience. This is a worthwhile tour!
Excellently organised and a very good and helpful guide
We all enjoyed it
This tour is well worth the time and the money. Really enjoyed ourselves. Lots of great food and beverages. We had a great guide and we enjoyed her company.
This tour was amazing. Veronica, our guide, was both very knowledgable and entertaining, and the shops and stalls we visited were excellent. Ended the tour very full of samplings from a wide range of delicious local produce, and spent the next couple of days revisiting the places to do our shopping. Highly recommended tour.
Food was fantastic and the tour also helped you discover more areas in Flourence.
Lots of fun. We went to a variety of places for caffe, gelato,wine, cheese, and many other delights. You will feel like you have had a deliciious meal when the tour is finished. My favorite was the Mercato - the public market with a huge variety of grocery type foods and restaurants. We ate ate four different vendorsi n the Mercato. Locals come to shop there. It's quite an experience. Our guide Benedetta was fun and knowledgable.
This was an incredibly enjoyable introduction to Florence and the unique foods they excel at. We were traveling with two children and this was the highlight for them. My 11 year old daughter rated this as one of the best tours ever. We joined with another family for a party of 9. It was a nice size to allow everyone to mingle and enjoy without being overwhelmed. Do it early in your stay so you can use all the helpful hints and tips. It was well paced and had even more than we expected. Our guide Benne was wonderful. She was a great source of knowledge and just fun to be around. Thanks Benne for a great tour!
Valentina was a great guide and added in information about the city as we walked between stops on the tour. Good selection of traditional dishes and wine was included!
