We have been to Florence a few times and it was the second time we have done the food tour. Today was different to our last visit and introduced for us some new places to eat, if we had done this on arrival in Florence we would definitely have eaten slightly differently during our stay. Our guide Martina was very... More

We booked this food tour based on a recommendation. We were given explicit instructions as to where the meeting point was and the time. We arrived a little early and got to look around the macelleria where the tour started. Our tour guide Martina was a native Florentine and knew Florence inside and out but also had extensive knowledge of... More

Great food, great guide, great day. We learned tons about the local fare. My only regret was not doing the tour sooner so we could have applied more of her recommendations/knowledge throughout our trip!

We had a fantastic food and wine tour with a real florentine! The tour was very well organized and the group size was small enough. We got to experience wine tasting, balsamic vinegar tasting, olive oil tasting, florentine comfort food, gelato, pastries, salami... You really can skip the lunch! The booking system was easy, the meeting point was easy to... More

I am not going to rehash what others have said but would strongly recommend you take this tour. If you like food this is going to be a highlife of your stay. I suggest doing it early in your stay as you will get insight into the food scene which is helpful. Alessandro does a great job of introducing Florentine... More

This was by far one of the most memorable things we did on our 2 week trip to Italy! My husband and I were traveling with our two children (ages 14 and 11), and were a little nervous that they would get bored and make the tour miserable-but they loved it!! Allessandro was wonderful with the boys and did a... More

We loved this tour!! Recommended to us by a fellow foodie friend, we signed up last minute and made an early morning trip to Florence from Lucca for the 9:30am tour. There were two other couples on our tour and Alessandro was our very well-informed guide (also, his English is perfect). We followed the suggestion to skip breakfast and arrived... More

There were three of us on the tour and Alessandro was our guide. We started out at a meat market. We visited a local bakery where we tasted several pastries, a café where we tasted a wonderful type of croissant, the main market where we tasted a boiled beef sandwich, a shop where we tasted wine and vinegar and finally...

This is a great guide to some of Florence's best food places (some of which are hidden in the list of Tripadvisor's recommended restaurants but deserve the top spots). Every place we visited had simply great food and we tried to come back to each and every one of them later on. We even bought a special vinegar to take... More

A wonderful way to experience Florence and learn so much about meats, cheeses, breads, pastries, wine and balsamic vinegars. Allesandro was terrific and made a genuine point of trying to get to know all of us. Every stop was well planned, informative and tasty! Beware of knock off companies - I've been told they have taken this tour and then... More
