    A group of 5 of us went on this tour and we all loved it. Our guide "Vanessa" was a doll showing us around the city while tasting wine and different food examples. I have nothing but high praise for this tour.

    This was incredible. Vanessa is the kindest sweetest most charismatic tour guide ever. This was 10 stars! Do not miss the food, the people, the history

    The food walking tour took us to places that my husband and I have walked past, but never noticed before. The food was good and the history / information provided gave us a better insight of the city of Florence.

    We really enjoyed this tour. Bernadetta was a great tour guide and the food was very good. The wine was very tasty. I’m a savoury guy and the tour was kind of sweet oriented but otherwise enjoyable.

    Our guide was very passionate about wine, food and Florence. Food was good and just enough. The market area is very good, and worth a visit on its own for the variety of food available there.

    Loved this tour! Chirstina was a delightful tour guide and we had the opportunity to sample a variety of specialties including pastry, espresso, truffles, a caprese sandwich, pasta, olive oil and balsamic vinegar you could drink from a spoon, topped by a visit to a gelataria! HIghly recommend!!!

    While in Florence for three days we decided to spend our first evening tasting the sites. Our guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable. The sites we visited provided super tasty specialties of the area to include wines, balsalmic vinegar and olive oils. Other selections included meats, cheeses, tiramisu, gelatto and more. I thought the portions were a bit small.The sites visited are worth remembering and revisiting...they are that good! Our group had a deliciously appetizing evening!

    Small group, personalize service. Great food spots.

    Great tour guide and experience for first time visitors to Florence. Slightly lacking in food variety, but helps with learning how to get around the city.

    My boyfriend and I enjoyed the tour. I like that we saw places at different price points and there were options to go back and try more things later. The coffee shop was a spot we went back too a couple of times.
