What You Can Expect

Sorrento Small-Group Food Walking Tour

Visit a deli market for real buffalo mozzarella

Meet your guide and fellow foodies at Piazza Tasso Sorrento, the seaside town's main square, to begin this tasty 3-hour food tour. Let your local food-loving guide lead you through the streets of central Sorrento, explaining the food culture of the city and regaling you with interesting historical anecdotes.

During the tour, stop at eight different spots: from eateries to delis, markets to dessert destinations. With Mount Vesuvius as the backdrop, stroll the streets of this charming city taking in the colorful sun-kissed houses and palaces.

The first stop is to sample the shell-shaped filled pastry called sfogliatelle at a pastricceria. But don't fill up too fast because next up is a hot pressed sandwich known as a panini and then pali'e riso, a fried rice ball and a Neapolitan version of arancini.

Walk on to a family-run deli to munch on some creamy buffalo mozzarella and some cured meat, known as salumi. Wash it down with a few sips of locally brewed craft beer. Not satiated yet? Good, because the next stop is to sample some local pasta delights and wine at a trattoria. Finish off the meal with a glass of limoncello.

Finish your feast with a stop at a gourmet gelato shop for a lick or two of Italian ice cream before walking off your meal back to Piazza Tasso Sorrento.

Great tour, Tamara was the perfect guide, friendly and informative, the tastings were of good quality and I would advise going easy on breakfast if you choose the morning one as there is plenty of food on the tour.

Tastebuds tickled and tantalised. If you love good food this is a must do trip. Tamara who led the small group has the best job in the world. Taking foodies around her adopted home town and introducing them to independent local food providers, sharing her knowledge of the food and history of Sorrento. Skip breakfast because you will start the tour with pastries and end with gelato from Davide, after sampling a range of locally produced food. Lunch was caprese salad and gnocchi with wine. All the providers she introduced us to were enthusiastic and some had big personalities. Make this the first tour in Sorrento as it helps you learn your way around the town and discover the best food on offer. Skip breakfast, you will eat your way around Sorrento, discover an oasis of calm in the lemon grove and Tamara's love of Sorrento will rub off on you. She is an excellent tour leader. If you love good food, this tour is a must and worth every penny.

Tour guide was excellent and we enjoyed the food and drink at every stop. Total walking distance was probably less than 2 miles and we got to see and visit shops that we would not have gone into on our own. The people in the places we went to were friendly and fun and the food and drink were excellent.

Tamara was a great guide for Sorrento. Her tour selections were great, and her additional details and stories about Sorrento helped enhance the experience. We also appreciated the little pamphlet she handed out which included some of her other restaurant recommendations. We chose one of those recommendations for dinner and frequented the gelato place from the tour regularly afterwards. We will definitely look for similar tours in other cities we visit and would recommend this to anyone visiting Sorrento.
