Awesome to walk and visit the small shops and learn! John W. Atlanta GA
We can't say enough about this tour. Our guide Linda was fantastic, she gave us such detail while walking from place to place, things we certainly would have missed just walking around ourselves. the tidbits of history were a highlight and something we're still talking about! We were lucky enough at one of our stops at a bakery to meet the baker, all the people in the shop seemed to know out guide which was great because they welcomes us even more. She allowed us plenty of time if needed to purchase things from the shops we stopped in. We only had one night in Florence so it was the perfect way to experience as much as possible in our brief stay. By the end we felt like we had spent an afternoon with a family friend touring us around their city. We would definitely do it again and we use the company overall for other tours!
Alice was a wonderful guide. We had an excellent time even in the rain.
This tour had a small group which is great for my comfort. We walked a lot but mostly on flat surfaces and had great food and wine at the shops that were welcoming and with great service. The guide had many years of experience and knew the Tuscan food and drink well. She was very personable and was fluent in Italian and English. We learned a lot and interacted with the local owners of the shops which was great! Some in the group were frequent travelers and had many stories to share of their travels and knowledge of food . I would love to do as many food tours as I could.
Marco was our guide. I will post more on trip adviser. You really do see some back streets where there are few tourists. He was very knowledgeable and eager to have questions about his city, We had everything that is mentioned in the description of this tour. Truffles, chocolate, Gelato, Olive oil, balsamic vinigar, breads and pasty, wine and secco. We had previously done a wine tour and still learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed the more in-depth knowledge and tastling of different olive oil.
There should be a 10 star option, that and #39;s my choice. Our guide who actually was one of the owners was phenomenal. Her knowledge, kindness, willingness to discuss all topics, and spent more time than was allotted. Linda was the best, and won over my husband which is rare. She made our trip a success.
Tour guide was great - not a native Italian so she had the benefit of an outside perspective, but has lived in Florence for many years so she had insider knowledge! We sampled prosecco, wine, gelato, cheese, charcuterie, vinegar, olive oil, and truffles - I didn't need dinner! Lots of fun and a great value.

Very enjoyable our guide Francesca was great.The only problem about the tour was that we did it in the middle/late afternoon so we could not eat that evening. We should have done it over the lunch time period.
