Both the organization behind the tour (Toni) and our guide (Silvia) were excellent. Silvia has a great knowledge of the history of Umag and gave us a real insight into the recent history of Istria and what sets Istrians apart. The food and wine showcased some of the best locally sourced produce and we were introduced to 3 local restaurants (all very good). This was a high quality experience and a great introduction to Umag. There are many things that we‘ll be buying from local producers and not from the supermarket while we’re here.

The main topic of the company are walking tours through the old town, so the food tour is what I would say a walking tour with stops in different stops in restaurants, witch doesn't mean that I didn’t like the tour, but it was different from what I accepted to be.

We were lucky to have our guide Anamarija all to ourselves for the tour, the old town of Porec is beautiful and Anamarija had a wonderful knowledge of the towns history. The food and wine was really good and a excellent selection of what Croatia can offer, loved the truffle pasta! Make sure you arrive with a empty stomach, the portions are very generous! Wish we had had the tour earlier in our holiday so we could have gone back to the restaurants again.

We did this small-group tour as a day trip from Rovinj, not only to highlight authentic Istrian cuisine but to see Pula's sights, including the amazing Arena. Maja, our wonderful and knowledgeable tour guide combined both in a great day's tour. Stopping at several restaurants and eateries, we were able to sample the abundant, various dishes, so much so, I remember not being able to finish the dessert at the final point (a travesty, I know). There were lovely pairings of wine at each place, and we ended buying the recommended organically produced sparkling moscato at the final bar (it did not last long, btw :)) I very much recommend this tour, to get a glimpse into the cuisine and sights of Pula. You'll have a great time, I am sure.

Great tour! Good combination of sightseeing and food experience! People from the agency were very helpful and our guide Maja was fantastic! Apart from the main sightseeing attractions(Pula IS quite interesting due to its past!), we visited three restaurants of which the first two offered us a starter and main dish (we got quite full at the end) and the last was offered more of a wine+cheese tasting occasion accompanied with dessert. Why not five stars? Unfortunately it was veeery hot on that day (we had to move indoors with AC instead of cosy street terrace) and some key persons were absent(due to pregnancy etc). Providing a complete but balanced overall food experience in many places in a row is not easy but Istria Gourmet Food Tours did a fairy good job here. I highly recommend anyone visiting Pula to join the tour!
