Communication with the company was promptly answered, which when you book anything overseas like this months in advance, it is always appreciated. When we booked the tour we specified that one of us cannot drink alcoholic beverages, the request was accommodated along with a discount on the tour price. The tour gave a good overview of local delicacies, including learning... More

We arrived in Florence on a Sunday and it appeared that most of the museums would be closed on Monday, so we decided to fill in that gap by booking a non-museum dependent tour for that day. After reading all of the Florence "food tour" reviews, we settled on this one. (It was very easy to book and pay for... More

I've taken many tours over the years, and this was one of the best. This tour is definitely worth the money - eat your way through Florence and learn a few things while you're at it. I highly recommend doing this at the beginning of your trip, as food is such an important part of the culture and enjoying your... More

I booked this food tour after reading such incredible reviews - and I was not disappointed! Alessandro took myself & my two best friends to the best local stops Florence has to offer. The sfoglia pastry, parma & Tuscan prosciutto, various balsamic's, and surprising local wines... everything was delicious! Alessandro's intimate knowledge of the food and area mixed with his...

I booked this tour at the last minute after hearing about it from people at a wine tasting in Venice and I'm very glad I did. There were only three of us on the tour so we got really individualized attention from Martina. As other reviews have stated, we visited and tasted meats, pastries, wines, olive oil, vinegar, chocolate, gelato... More

On the recommendation of our travel company, we signed up for the Taste Florence tour and were so glad we did! Our party of four met our delightful and knowledgeable guide Alessandro at 9 a.m. and, with six other tourists, spent the next five hours eating our way through the historic district. Stops included a meat store for prosciutto, the... More

My sister and I took this tour on our second to last day in Florence - and wished we taken it sooner. Our guide, Alessandro, was so knowledgeable and entertaining. We had a small group - 7 total - and that was great. We learned about local meats, sweets, wines, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. We toured the market and... More

We read about this tour last winter in travel section of our newspaper and booked the tour a few months before leaving for Europe. It was a terrific tour. We only wish we could have done it on our first day in Florence! We recommend it to all our friends.
