Alessandro, a Florentine native, met us on time, was very pleasant, spoke excellent English, and was very comfortable in his knowledge of the foods, shops and markets that we visited. Every stop was amazing. We not only sampled many things at each stop but either Alessandro or the merchant took the time to explain processes to us. We sampled a... More

This was my 4th tour with Toni. I am a food tour specialist and she is my go-to girl in Florence for all of my small groups. Great personality offering great food tastings and loads of fun, personal knowledge. Do not pass this opportunity up - great value for $.

Group of 6 amateur cooks, ages 16-59. Mid Feb, 2014 visit. Tour was led by Alessandro who was fun, informative, attentive and provided us with a great introduction to Florence! We visited and sampled the fare at butchers, bakers, a cafe, a gelateria, a fascinating wine cellar and the Mercato Centrale. We chatted and walked at a comfortable pace learning... More

Alessandro was our guide. Very friendly and personable. All of the food that we had was excellent from the cured meats to pastries to chocolates. For my husband and I, the wine tasting was the highlight of the tour. The establishment had a nice vibe and listening to the the owner/sommelier describe the wines that we were tasting with such...

Our guide, Karen, was... More

We booked this tour shortly before our trip to Florence, and were we glad to have booked it! Martina (if I don't recall wrongly - it was a month back) was an energising tour who made effort to take care of the 4 guests (us included) on the tour. We love, love, love the places that Taste Florence planned. We... More

My husband and 2 other couples took this tour in October. In total the group was 12. Our guide Tina was amazing. She was the best tour guide we had on our 4 week trip of Italy. You could really tell she enjoyed her job, very knowledgeable and entertaining. This tour was a wonderful introduction to Florence, the areas of... More

Four of us toured Tuscany in early September celebrating my sister's 50th birthday. I highly recommend the Taste Florence food tour. Our guide, Martina, was excellent; very personable, knowledgeable and welcoming. They remembered it was for a birthday and took time at one the pastry shops to sing happy birthday! Nice touch. Definitely don't eat before going heading out on... More
