I absolutely loved this tour. Our guide was so knowledgeable and friendly. I felt like I was getting an intimate tour of Florentine food with a friend I've known my whole life. Great variety, super personal touches, was my favorite day in Italy.

Great day, so educational and fun. Terrific samples in each of the small, local businesses we visited. We would recommend this to all. Toni, led our tour and she had so much knowledge and knew the business owners we met.
