An excellent introduction to the local food and wine of Tuscany. Karin was an excellent host. Book in advance. Do not eat a big breakfast. Put on your walking shoes and enjoy! We went back to most of the shops to buy food the next day.

We met Alessandro for this tour. He was a great guide with plenty of knowledge. The food was excellent. We were so full before we even finished the tour. We went on our last day and wished we had gone at the beginning of our stay in Florence so we could have gone back to visit some of the places... More

Love doing a walking food tour to get acclimated to the city and of course eat local food. This tour with Valentina was wonderful. First of all, Valentina was knowledgeable, entertaining, and very helpful. The tour included about six to seven stops and the food was plentiful. Coffee, wine, truffles, bakery stops, breads, cheeses, meats, and of course gelato. Loved... More

The tour gets you directly into the city's local secrets. Our guide, Alessandro, was top notch! We did it as a family with our three grown children aged 19, 21 and 25 and they all enjoyed it. Do not have breakfast before! You will be so full, it will kill you!
