Well worth the money and time. It was our first tour and it gave us a great feel for the city and some good tips on where to purchase great food and snacks at very reasonable prices. One of the bakeries we visited over 5 times and the market more than 5 times as well.

Being our first time in Florence, we wanted an insiders view of the city and food. The Taste of Florence did an excellent job explaining the history as we walked through the market and sampled from select shops. The guide was very knowlegable and the tour was very well organized. Many of the samples had been prepared for our arrival... More

The churches are amazing. We heard the monks chanting in one of the churches. I would go back in an instant! We had lunch in an old castle. The... More

Toni was incredible in taking us through the various shops and tastes of Florence. You can tell she loves the people and the food and sharing it with visitors. Her relationships with the local shop owners was fun to observe. Food was excellent and knowledge was impeccable.

In addition to taking us to a butcher shop, bakery, central food market, wine store and gelato/ chocolate shop, Karin told us a lot about eating and restaurant customs in Florence and Italy generally. That helped us a lot in terms of distinguishing the different types of bars, restaurants and cafes and what we might expect as far as service... More
