Our family of five had this tour in June and it was a memorable part of our visit to Florence. The breakfast pastry was amazing and the snacks that followed just as fun. We were baptized in grappa and even learned where to buy true Florentine leather--not the mass-produced stuff in the market. We finished with some pretty amazing gelato.... More

My wife and I enjoyed our "Food and Wine Tour" with Mimi. It's an easy, recreational walking tour. Great for couples and families. A great introduction to the food culture of Florence and Italy. I am a foodie, and I like to think of myself as pretty knowledgeable about Italian food and wine. That said, I learned some new and... More

We had a great 4.5 hour tour with Mimi. The pace, level of information, and variety was perfect for our family, who are serious about food but not obsessed. I appreciated that Mimi did what we expected (i.e., introduced us to everything from Florence street food to the best of the best balsamic vinegar). Along the way she shared her... More

The experience is beyond anything you will ever expect! Come with a lot of energy because it will only enhance your experience. Mama Natalie is energetic and amazing with her extensive knowledge of traditional Italian foods. She takes you on an unforgettable journey through food and drinks, and you will leave happy and fulfilled.

Our family of 5 (3 teens) did this tour with Mama Sam. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour; our teens especially enjoyed the boiled meat sandwiches - so much so that we returned to have them again a few days later. Sam was very knowledgeable and fun. This is truly a “must do” when in Florence.

All the positive TA reviews are spot-on. Mama Natalie takes care of her ragazzi and if you listen well and taste everything, you will learn how to survive and enjoy your Tuscan vacation. By taking the tour early in our trip, we could come back to several spots later....and some of the vendors even remembered us! Real café experience, working... More

This is an experience that I so highly recommend on your first day in Florence! My 16 year old daughter and I did the Nude and Food tour and cannot stop talking about how great it was. We were met by Nat in front of the Accademia promptly at 9:30 am along with the other members of the tour. It... More

We did 2 with Mimi - a nude and food on one day followed by an Uffizi tour the next day. She was an excellent guide and did a great job keeping my teen and pre-teen interested in Renaissance art... The nude and food tour was very fun and delicious, we tried coffee, pastries, veal sandwiches, wine and all sorts... More
