My wife and I are all about the private tours. What a better way to go than with a private tour of FOOD (and wine)! This was such an informative tour. Getting to understand why I got a weird look when I asked for a cooffee "to go" in Italy really comes in handy. She completely explained the mindset behind the foods, Why when we go to a restaurant at 8pm, the restaurants are empty! Things like that. She drowned us with wine, so by the time the tour was done I was barely walking, lol. FLorence is a walking town, so dont think youre gonna be hiking all over the city. The tour was excellent. Im a balsamic expert now!

From the first email received from these nice ladies, we knew that it is going to be memorable experience. We were guided by Sam that was more than amazing. We first visited museum where David is located, it was very nice and educational. After it the tour through fodd starts with espresso and goes on and on, through wines, cheese, olive oil etc. This should not be missed when visiting Florence. Thank uou Sam.

This was hands down the best food tour!!! Nat was an amazing host and we loved her enthusiasm and passion for all things Italian. We could not fault the food tour and loved visiting the oldest coffee shop, fruit & vegetable markets where we sampled a range of antipasti, delicious pork rolls with salsa verde, aged balsamics and wonderful gelato (the best in Firenze!!!). We also visited a wine shop and sampled lovely wines (as you do when in Italy). It was the most memorable tour and we will not forget it. Hats off to the girls for running such a well organised fantastic food tour in Firenze. 10/10.

My husband and I did the "Florence for Foodies" tour, and we could not be more pleased. Sam was so great. We ate/drank our way through it all. The variety of food/drink and culture throughout the tour was great, cappuccino, pastry, cheese, salami, balsamic (yes so many vinegars), wine, gelato.... The list goes on and on, so don't eat before the tour. The majority of our time was spent in the market, amongst the locals. After the tour, we tried several of their recommended restaurants and were not disappointed. If you at all like food, this tour is worth your time.

My daughter and I went on a food tour of Florence "Florence for Foodies" with Samantha. It was a rainy day but t didn't stop us having a wonderful time. We covered and tried everything from coffee, pastries, biscotti and wine, truffles, cheese, olive oil, balsamic, appetisers, veal sandwiches, meat, chocolate and gelato. The tour took 4 hours but Sam stayed with us for 5 hours. We bought some treats to take home like Vin Santo and truffle honey. Most of the tour was in the Florence market. It was, fun, informative and at 69 euro was great value. It really was a highlight of our trip.
