We’ve booked many food tours with this company in the past, and they never disappoint. That being said, this was the most fun we’ve had on any past tour. Our guide, Francesco was amazing, funny and informative. That combined with great location suggestions had us laughing, learning and eating great food all night. Highly, highly recommend to others!
The tour had a great variety of drinks and dinner items that represent the uniqueness of Italy and Florence. Omar our guide has a true understanding of not only the food but also the culture and history of Florence.
I took my kids on this tour and we had an amazing time. Lisa was very personable and very knowledgeable with all the local history, culture, food and wines she took us too. This was a great memory for us and I would highly recommend it to any of my friends and family. I would definitely book this tour again in another city if it was offered.
Our guide Beatrice made the group feel very comfortable while showing us how the Florentines eat and drink. As I’m not a drinker I enjoyed all the selections she introduced us to. I’m now a fan of the negroni. Hopefully I will be able to enjoy it in the USA. She opened our taste buds while giving us a history lesson about life on the other side.
Beatrice was full of stories on our walking food tour. The foods (and drinks) were interesting and part of good memories of time in Florence. Meeting some of the shop owners made it very authentic. Thanks!
