My mom and I booked an 11 day trip to Italy with three days reserved especially for Florence. Our last day in Florence we opted for Walkabout Florence's Food Tour and Small Group Cooking Class at a farmhouse in Tuscany. I was amazed and impressed with our experience and credit Walkabout and our guide, Mara, with making this day one... More

This was a small group of 12 that met in Florence and ventured into the country side for a hands on cooking class given by an authentic Italian Nana. We met our guide Olivia in the city for a quick trip to the central market for the food, consisting of fresh veggies, pork and cheeses. Olivia was exceptionally motivated and... More

We took advantage of two Walkabout tours while we stayed in Florence: the Best of Tuscany tour and the Cinque Terre Trek. Both were just exceptional. Everyone in our group agreed that these tours were the smartest thing we did for ourselves on this leg of our trip. Great pacing, great guides, spectacular locales. We were able to cover so... More

What a superb way to spend a day. Probably one of the best I've had being on holiday. Walkabout tours is definitely something you should look into when you're in Florence. Our guide, Olivia was so much fun, so knowledgable and a very interesting person who took us on quite an interesting tour through Florence, buying fresh food at the... More

As a solo traveler, I often opt-out on tours due to budget and whatnot. While I was in Florence for a few days I decided I wanted to switch up my routine a bit and went to TripAdvisor for suggestions. I am so glad that Walkabout tours is listed as number one for activities because I had such a great... More

We had a great informative tour. Our guide Olivia worked at our speed, talked about what influenced us and gave us a personal Italian aspect that we would have never gotten without her. She and walk about Florence were wonderful. Worth every penny!

My husband, brother, sis-in-law and I joined a group of 12 others on the US Thanksgiving for a day-long cooking class in Firenze. Husband and bro were the only men in the group. SUPER experience! A grey, rainy day was turned sunny by the personalities of the guide , cooking teacher and assistants. We met at the Walkabout office before... More

Olivia was our tour guide, and HANDS DOWN she was THE BEST. She was very knowledgable, very well prepared, and very helpful. Olivia made the tour experience very personable and fun. There was plenty of downtime to look around and shop, too. I HIGHLY recommend this tour, especially with Olivia. Thank you for a memorable and amazing experience, Olivia!

I traveled to Italy last Memorial Day week with my boyfriend. We did Rome, Florence and Venice and took several tours. This tour was by far the best in any city!!! This is an amazing experience especially if you are traveling to Italy for the first time. There is so much to see in this beautiful country and it can... More
