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!
What a wonderful experience followed by a vertical tasting and great food. I would do it again.
Francesca and her family were the perfect hosts. Informative, enjoyable and I felt like I was being welcomed into their home. Truly a remarkable experience from the moment they picked us up from the hotel straight through. It will be a high light of your trip. Shout out to the movie star dog Chocolate that helped us find the truffles. Regards to the family, grazi.
