The wine cellar was awesome! Both pastry shops were delicious. The Central Market is amazing between 10-2. The walk to all the stops was very comfortable and easy. Florence is amazing.

An excellent tour, not to be missed when in Florence. Our tour guide Benna was outstanding! Great value for $$

This was an amazing tour and an excellent way to get a 'taste' of Florence and Italy. Starting with coffee and pastry, the tour progressed through the morning culminating with a wine tasting and charcuterie at lunchtime. Each stop was filled with wonderful information about Where the food came from, how it was grown/created, how the locals enjoy it, and of course, a tasting. I was amazed at the number of stops we made and the variety of items we were able to sample. At several points along the trip I was able to purchase small quantities of various items from the local vendors to take home which we found delightful. Our Tourguide, Benna, was very informed, but easy to talk to. It felt more like a day with a friend as she explained different customs and cultural aspects of the food. She is not only great at giving the food tour, but she also provided much history as we meandered through the city. I would strongly recommend this tour for anyone traveling to Florence as a way to learn some history and live 'like a local' for a bit. By the way, all the food was delicious and the tour helped us make our selections at various subsequent meals. We were also given some recipes to try at home as well. An excellent morning.

Antonio was engaging and informative. We tried coffees, wines, truffles, pasta, pastries and gelato and I couldn't eat another thing all day! I learnt a lot too - simply the best food tour I could imagine.

A group of 5 of us went on this tour and we all loved it. Our guide "Vanessa" was a doll showing us around the city while tasting wine and different food examples. I have nothing but high praise for this tour.

We really enjoyed this tour. Bernadetta was a great tour guide and the food was very good. The wine was very tasty. I’m a savoury guy and the tour was kind of sweet oriented but otherwise enjoyable.

Our guide was very passionate about wine, food and Florence. Food was good and just enough. The market area is very good, and worth a visit on its own for the variety of food available there.
