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.
This was a great tour and Tamara was awesome. I would highly recommend adding this to your itinerary on your next Sorrento visit. The food selections were delicious and the portions were very generous.
We loved this tour! We went to places in Sorrento we had never been before! Thank you Tamara for your knowledge, insight, stories, and for being such great company! We definitely recommend this experience for sure! Keep in touch if you come to Boston, we would love to show you around...

Tamara is exceptionally knowledgeable and very friendly. Knows the city and it’s properties very well. Easy to talk to and conversant in English or Italian. The tastings were good and the location of each tasting allowed for a fulsome tour of Sorrento. We felt this format allowed us to decide where we wanted to have a dinner, so we were pleased with the small plates.
Tamara was great fun & so knowledgeable about the many shops & restaurants we visited as well as great recommendation for surrounding cities. The portions were really generous I left very satisfied.
Definitely recommend this tour!
Thanks again Tamara!
We started our first night in Sorrento with this tour and it was one of the best things we could have done. It helped us get familiar with town instantly. We visited a great variety of local shops restaurants that we came back to visit most of them again to buy gifts or have lunch or dinner.
Our guide was so friendly, she knew all the shop keepers and when we came back we got a discount just from saying we were on her tour.
We had just traveled over 24 hours to get to Sorrento. I was unsure if we should even go out and do the tour that we had booked. But it was a great way to see the city, experience the local shops and restaurants . The best part is that we tasted so many good things along the way, we didn't even need to think about dinner.
Thanks so much.
So glad that we did this tour. Tamara was fantastic. There were only 10 of us on the tour, so it was easy to interact. We walked around the town and stopped in for food samples at several locations. We learned about the food and history. We were so full when we finished. Tamara also provided good references for shopping. Would highly recommend.
A must do in Sorrento! Tamara was a great/knowledgeable guide- a couple arrived late and she saved them samples from the first 3 stops that they missed. It was the perfect assortment of bites and treats. We saw parts of Sorrento we would have otherwise missed.
This was a great way to learn about the food specialties of the area. In addition, for our first night in Sorrento, gave us a bit of a tour of the area so we had a better idea of the lay of the land. Our tour guide was very good, and we would definitely recommend this tour to others, and would possibly even do it again ourselves!
