Experience made fabulous by our guide Francesco. Great way to spend an afternoon
Amazing tour and the guide Francesco was superb. Boccadasse is minutes away from the center of Genoa but is a beautiful small fishing town. The pesto making lesson was excellent and you realize there is a real art to get just the right balance of ingredients. As for the gelato, well, best place ever

Well.................I didn't actually go on the Pesto making tour - there was a family emergency so they had to cancel. However, my guide and please forgive me friend as I lost you name - I wrote it down and now cannot find the paper - asked me what else I may want to do. I told him I was a foodie and he said he normally does a walking food tour in the mornings but he'd be glad to take me on an afternoon tour. I was the only one on the tour that day so I had a private tour and loved it!!!!
He took me to some amazing places to sample the local food and when he said the place he normally takes his morning group on would be closed at 3pm was there any other food I wanted to try. I told him I want to go get some meat - he took me to the coolest place and I had Lardo and a few other amazing meats.
We ate small fried fish, focaccia bread, meats, gelato from the place voted the best gelato in Italy and finished off the tour with the local cookies at a wonderful bakery.
I couldn't have had a better time - I got to see a lot of the old city and eat some awesome food. I would recommend this trip to all.
Nice lady and the weather was lovely. We went on a nice walking tour of Boccadasse but I felt like the food tasting part was short, not very hands on and the lady was nice but a bit boring. I felt like for what we paid was a bit under-rated. When we did the pesto making part she was basically just making it for us. Ive done several food making tours before and i feel like we did more hands on work and learned more about how to make it. And the gelato tasting was more of going into a gelato shop and getting an ice cream. We didnt sample the flavors or learn what they are/what goes in on them.
