I got really lucky depending on your viewpoint on this tour. I was traveling solo and the other couple scheduled for the tour did not show up so I got a private tour! My guide was a doll and we had a great time - since I was by myself we had extra time to take a few little detours to some extra historical spots as we moved from one food venue to the next. Highly recommend!

I was the only person who had signed up for this tour, so the tour company contacted me and asked if I wanted to move to a wine tasting tour later that same day. I said that was no problem. And, I'm glad I did!

Linda, from the tour company Urban Adventures was so warm and wonderful! Made everyone feel at home as we walked the streets of Florence tasting food and wine.

Would definitely recommend this tour!

We absolutely loved this tour..... Lucca, our guide took us all around Florence, to many of the shops where we could sample everything from truffle sandwiches to prosecco, gelato, all the delicacy meats and different wines of the region...... Everything we tasted was delicious and Lucca was incredibly
Knowledgeable and charismatic..... We highly recommend this tour..... Ask for Lucca he answered all of our questions with great enthusiasm and was the perfect host......

If you want to get an abbreviated walking tour, history lesson, and food combined in to one I highly recommend this tour! We loved all of the places our tour guide, Francesca, took us to. She was wonderful to talk to and grew up in Florence so she was able to give us cultural and history lessons as we walked through the city, not to mention neat things about the specific areas we went to...none of which were tourist spots. Our first stop was for wine, meat, bread, and cheeses all cured or made in-house of course in a historical building. Then we went to a very cool bakery and got to sample several different pizzas and treats, then to have wine and truffles, then to have real gelato where we learned how to spot the fake and not-fresh gelato. Our favorite part was going to the small shop where we got to taste test balsamic vinegars from different years as well as truffle oils. The shop was very cute with lots of neat things to purchase such as oils, and all handmade items from Italy. The owner or the person doing the taste-test was great and informative and it was such a neat experience! Tour stayed on-time but only one location had a restroom...so use it when you can and we were glad to get the information on each location so we could come back.

Loved this walking tour! We enjoyed touring with Luca very much. He knows a lot about the local wine and he gave a great tour of some of the nooks and crannies in the old part of the city. There are some hidden gems that you would never know about without this tour and the guide. I would highly recommend this tour on your first day in town.

This was a wonderful way to end our time in Florence. Our guide, Linda, was very knowledgeable and fluent in both Italian and English. She took us to many small, local shops that we wouldn't have been able to find ourselves, including a chocolate shop, an olive oil shop, and a cheese and meat shop owned by three generations of the same family. It was a great way to see more of the small back streets of Florence compared to the mostly touristy sights that we had seen for the rest of our trip. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone!

Our tour guide, Francesca was fabulous! She was highly knowledgeable about the history, area, and of course the various foods and wines we enjoyed. The tour takes you to some great places that would otherwise be difficult to find while exploring the city. Many of the shops and cafes are on the smaller side which has it's pros and cons going in as a group, but Francesca seemed to manage this well. The shop proprietors were all expecting our arrival and each one was gracious and welcoming. The food and wine was very tasty and we were allotted a bit of time to shop around at each stop. Great tour to get a break from museums and try a little something different!

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!
