This food tour was fantastic, and one that everyone in my family enjoyed. I was a little thrown off when I saw that our tour was through a Segway company, but it was clear early on that it didn't matter at all. We went to several little places and then spent some time touring the food market. We had both wine and tasty food! I would be totally willing to do this same tour again. If you leave hungry, it's your fault!

This is a MUST DO while visiting in Florence. I can not recommend this tour enough. Our guide was a passionate local who helped us discover the lesser known pleasures of food and wine while in Florence. The tour based on the other side of the Arno and is only a short walk over the Ponte Vecchio. This area comes to life at night so this sunset tour was perfect. So much food, so many insights... do this tour!
