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.

Beatrice was full of stories on our walking food tour. The foods (and drinks) were interesting and part of the good memories of our time in Florence. Meeting some of the shop owners made it very authentic. Thanks!

Francesco was awesome and did a great job explaining both the food and history of the great city of Florence. We enjoyed our time and tastings.

Touring Oltrarno with our knowledgeable guide Omar was an excellent experience. The tastings of true local foods, meeting the authentic owners of most of the shops & learning about the historical background of the food was very enjoyable.

- Twinmon (TripAdvisor Review)

Awesome experience! Highly recommend. Great for families as well. We have done several Eating Europe tours in other cities and they never disappoint.
