The Florence Centrale Market is always amazing, but this trip was great with the stops before the market and the city information as you make your way down to the market. Our guide was charming and knowledgeable.

I have been on several food and market type tours in different countries and this is by far the best ever.

Our guide Benedetta was excellent. The businesses we visited and their staff were also fantastic and the variety was sensational.

The samples were very generous and I doubt you would be able to eat lunch - I couldn't even finish my ice-cream and that was pretty sad as it was delicious.

The tour states small and it is - only 8 people in our group so it was a very personal experience.

I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. Don't hesitate make your booking before you leave home!

This was so much fun! Christina was very fun and informative. We had eight different stops on the tour. I was so full afterwards though that I wish I hadn't eaten breakfast! Definitely a highlight of the trip! Thank you to one of the members of our group that gave me a flyer on a specific kind of balsamic vinegar that I was trying to find for some friends. I searched on google maps and was able to find the shop.

My husband and I very much enjoyed the Small group food walking tour with Angela. She provided much insight and background about the many wonderful foods of Tuscany that we tasted as we moved to different shops. We had opportunities to sit down and for restroom breaks. Angela did a masterful job with her excellent English and command of the history of Florence, Tuscany and the food. With just 6 participants the experience was even more enjoyable.

Tour was amazing, our guide was so informative and took us to so many different places where we could try a variety of food. Made sure there was time to use the bathroom and provided us restaurant recommendations and directions to where we wanted to go at the end of our trip.
