My family and I had a wonderful time on this tour, it was a rainy day, but still very enjoyable! We met up at a butcher shop and learned about the different kinds of prosciutto, which was really informative! Then we stopped at a pastry shop, one of the originals, very tasty and even picked up a few treats to... More

Based on other reviews we booked the tour for the start of our break and we were so glad that we did! It helped us to get our bearings in the city but also know where to visit for a quick snack or meal during our stay. The highlights were the Wine Tasting in the cellar, the bakeries and of... More

We did a tour with friends of ours on a first visit to Florence. Martina did an excellent job explaining what we were sampling and answering all of our questions. She is a very patient and knowledgeable person. But be prepared that while the "tastes "are very good, they are just that; small. I feel that for the money paid;... More

Our small group of 4 booked into this tour of a total size of 10. It was the highlight of our florence stay. So entertaining AND educational, and Allesandro was a fabulous guide. The tasting was phenomenal. Well worth it .... Highly recommended !

Well we took this tour in 2011 and liked it so well we did it again and were glad we did. They have changed some of the stops on the tour adding some bakeries and some food vendors in the Central Market. The selections were wonderful and we had so much fun with our group. We all enjoyed each other's... More

My husband and I attended this tour along with another close couple and had the best experience! Our guide was Martina, who was a true native if florence. She was very knowledgable of the food, wine, olive oils, balsamic etc. and you could tell she really enjoyed her job. We also tasted some of the best food on this tour... More

My husband and I took this small group tour with Allesandro and enjoyed every bite. Go hungry ! Allesandro spoke English well and was very personable. The tour gave us a good bearing of Florence and we returned to Eduardo's gelato daily. Couldn't believe how great the boiled meat sandwich was.

I was in Florence for the first time ever in early September. I am so happy I booked this tour ahead of my visit. I will echo everything user turks101 said below. This is the kind of tour that really explains Tuscan cuisine, and in broader terms, explains Tuscan history and culture in a way that is delicious, fun and... More

My husband and I did this tour on one of our first days in Florence. We loved everything about it. We visited places that we would have never gone to on our own and learned about foods that we had never heard of, even with all of the Italian food in New York City. Tour guide was fun and engaging... More
