We actually took every tour offered by Nat and Sam - they were just that great. Both Nat and Sam are personable, and extremely knowledgeable. We took our kids, ages 18, 17, and 10 with us, and they all thoroughly enjoyed each tour. Nat and Sam even made the "wine" portion of the tour enjoyable for the kids. I highly... More

Spending the day with Nat on the Nude & Food Tour was a perfect way to spend a rainy day. It's rare to find a tour that hits the sweet spot with key criteria: size (not too big, not too small), knowledgeable (historically and culturally insightful - yet not overloaded), fun (Nat loves Florence, loves her guests, and her work)...

We are so glad that we went on this tour in Florence! It was very informative, but also extremely fun. The whole group size was not too big – I think there were about 10 of us total. We started out at the Accademia Gallery where we were able to skip the line and get right in quickly. This gave... More

We visited Florence for a few days in October and went on this food tour with Nat (Mama). Nat was very personable, knowledgeable and entertaining. We tasted a multitude of different food, olive oil, balsamic vinegars, wine, etc. She also took us to a great shop where we tasted many things privately just for our small group tour. She also...

If you love food, this is one thing that you really should try to do whilst in Florence. We were with a really great group, everyone had a super day and 'bonded' over many glasses of wine and AMAZING food. The girl taking us around, Nat was incredible; full of local knowledge, great sense of humour and a very warm... More

We spent an absolutely wonderful day with "Mama Natalie" on a Nude and Food Tour. I have a whole new appreciation for David after seeing him through Natalie's eyes. Then we started our food tour - what an experience! Sfolgias to die for, boiled beef sandwich with wine for second breakfast, a delightfully informative hour spent with Yvonne (after cuddling...

Would highly recommend this food tour with Natalie. Also met her friend Yvonne who had a great shop with olive oils,sauces,wine,cheeses and balsamic vinegar tastings. Bought some nice Italian coffee at her shop and enjoyed the public market. We learned a lot about the culture of the Italian people and had a great time.

We had toured Florence before so we wanted something a little different, something more local. We found it in this tour. We met Sam in town and toured with her for the day. Stopping in the food market tasting a lot of local foods. It was an easy walking tour as all the vendors were all in the same area.... More
