Chef Vary is a fantastic chef and her husband is a superb host. We had a fantastic time at their house. Our guide that brought us around Florence for tastings was knowledgeable and fun to chat with. This tour is well worth it and one of the best things you can do in Florence.

Very nice tour with 3 stops in different places around Florence city center, tasting truffles, wines and oils! The guide was friendly and knowledgeable and at the end of the tour we had a fantastic truffle dinner (3 courses) together with other guests in a real Florentine house. Very local experience and look at the pictures that speak for themselves!
