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

It was a good tour, showed us florence as well as it's food. Our host was lovely and knowledgeable - Martina. The food was pretty good and it took us to places we wouldn't have otherwise known. I recommend this tour! The only thing is it is a little pricey!

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
