What You Can Expect

Florence Gourmet Food Tour: Truffles, Chocolate, Gelato, Olive Oil and Wine

Enjoy a glass of Chianti with your expert guide!

After meeting your guide in the historic city center, you'll begin your gourmet food tour of Florence by learning about how Tuscany's culinary history and respect for quality produce carries into how Tuscans continue to make food to this day.

Your first stop is at a delicatessen that specializes in truffles, a particularly sought-after commodity in Tuscany, and learn how locals forage for the valuable fungus. Here, you'll sample a panino tartufato, a pâté sandwich topped with shavings of those prized truffles, accompanied by a glass of sparkling prosecco.

The next stop at an artisan chocolatier allows you to treat your sweet tooth. You'll taste different chocolates in a guided tasting session, learning what sets handmade chocolates apart, before heading to a very popular shop selling Tuscan olive oils and balsamic vinegars. Here, you'll have another guided tasting, learning about the variation olive oils can have from fruity to peppery.

Wandering further from the olive oil shop, you'll indulge in a gelato treat from a beloved local gelateria and finally end your tour at a wine bar. Enjoy some warm-from-the-oven focaccia bread and a glass of one of Tuscany's most famous wines – Chianti – while you review what you've tasted and plot your next meal.

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!

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.
