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.
This was one of the highlights of our trip. Our guide, Linda of Urban Adventure, was very good and made it very informative and enjoyable.
THE VERY BEST TOUR EVER LOVED IT

This was a very good tour with an excellent guide who gave us lots of interesting information about the history of Florence, the food and the way of life in Italy. The tastings were quite ample so don't eat much before you go.
Tour guide was excellent, she presented us with many historical interested facts about food and wine in Florence and the important families who shaped Florence's history.
