    Our food tour was wonderful, start to finish. Our knowledgeable guide met us at a convenient location, and she led us through a perfect blend of history and delicious, authentic food as we walked the city. The tour gave us the orientation we needed to better enjoy our stay in Florence.

    Started in the San Lorenzo market where we Tasted several kinds of delicious hand made ravioli and then stopped in a shop for tastings of truffles, olive oil, aged balsamic vinegars and pistachio cream. (We picked up a bottle of 10-year old balsamic to take home.) Next we walked through the city stopping at interesting historical points including the Duomo. Final tastings included authentic stops for lasagna, eggplant parmesan and the best place for hand crafted gelato. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable and this was a great way to see some Florence sites, learn about Florence and taste some authentic Italian food. We only had 4 people in our group so it was very personal tour. The meeting point was easy to find.

    Alice was a passionate and delightful guide. We discovered first in Mercato Centrale, than in a nice restaurant what are the specific dishes of Florence and Tuscany. We finished with a great gelato.

    We had a great time with Caterina and she was very thorough. Yummy ravioli, outstanding truffle olive oil, and delicious gelato! She shared what real Italians eat and why. Lots of walking so wear your walking shoes!

    We had an excellent tour guide. I learned so much and I wish we had done this the first day we got to Italy. It would have definitely helped narrow down our choices of food we wanted to order. The food was great and our tour guide was happy to answer all our questions!!

    Highly recommended. This is the best way to taste local food and to get more insight into the history and culture of the city. Also the perfect way to get to know your way around.

    Our guide, Claudia was fantastic. Extremely knowledgeable and very nice. We sampled many different and unique types of food and learned the respective background.

    This is a tour where you can eat the real food of Florence and Tuscany. Claudia was an excellent guide, chatting to each visitor and making sure we all were enjoying ourselves as we made our way around Florence. The quality of the sampled food was really good and more plentiful than expected. It was excellent value and would strongly recommend.
