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

Our tour guide was named Alessandro who clearly has a passion for food. He taught us things about food we didn't know before and took us to stalls and shops I would certainly have passed by without barely a second glance. I loved this tour. The guide had impeccable English and was charming. A historian by profession, Alessandro is destined... More

We chose Taste Florence based on excellent reviews, and we were very please that the excellent reviews were right on. First of all, follow their advice and do not have a lot for breakfast, all the food from the tastings will carry you almost to dinner. During our booking process they were very informative and responsive (we had just a... More

As instructed didnt have much for breakfast and this proved to be a good idea. The tour was well paced and the food was of a high standard and so tasty and varied. I had my two teenage kids with me and they loved everything including the olive oil and balsamic vinegar ! The Gelato they of course loved !... More
