We had a brief amount of time in Florence and wanted to make the most of it. So what did we do? We ate our way though the beautiful town with the expert help of Sam, our culinary tour guide! Sam was incredibly knowledgeable about Florence, the food, the customs and the best places to buy great Italian purses, cigars... More

I add my accolades regarding our Florence with Foodies tour. My 20 year old daughter and I ended up having a private tour with Sam of the Accademia, and she was very knowledgable about Michelangelo's life and work. We were then joined by a young couple from Norway and another couple from Holland. We all hit it off immediately and... More

Our family of four met Sam last week at the door of the Accademia.We were introduced to a lovely couple from California who joined us on this tour. We were excited to see the statue of David and learn about Michaelangelo. My two teenage daughters were not looking forward to another boring museum tour but were pleasantly surprised. Sam made...

My girlfriend and I have done food tours in three Italian cities and always enjoy them. In addition to trying great food and wine you also understand the history, culture and tradition of the place which helps you to behave more like a local Italian. This food tour was no exception. Our Italian Mamma was amazingly charismatic, humerous and made... More

We had so much to eat on this tour. We started with a sweet breakfast and then headed into the market for a delicious sandwich and cheese/salami/vinegar tasting. We had a really fun wine tasting as well and what seemed like endless gelato samplings at the end. I loved the variety on this tour. Our tour guide, Samantha, was awesome.... More

Our family of 4 had so much fun on this tour - the highlight of our trip! Mama Nat is such great tour guide, teaching us things about the food culture in Italy in a fun way. The food and wine that we tasted was amazing. My daughter and I went back to some of the spots the next day... More

What a wonderful way to start off my Florence vacation! The morning started with David, oh my! Then onto incredible culinary delights! Can't say enough about Mama Sam, reached out to her before I arrived, asking for help with restaurant on first night. Not only shared wonderful recommendations, but took care of reservation! It's obvious they love sharing Florence with... More

We had a great time on this tour with Mama Nat. We particularly enjoyed seeing the David with Nat as she brought Michelangelo and the David to life for us with her knowledge presented in a fun and interesting way. I was so glad that we included this part of the tour as prior to this I had been fairly... More

Imagine yourself in Italy...wandering through the streets of Florence sampling the best food in the city! Sounds great and it is! This tour was the highlight of my time in Florence and is as good as everyone on Tripadvisor says. Florence for Foodies and our guide Samantha delivered a fabulous and delicious food tour - do not miss out!

Nat (mom) was so welcoming and energetic about what she did, her passion showed through. My only regret was we did not have more time to stay in Florence after this tour to take advantage of... More
