I’ve done several food tours but this one did not hit the mark. The tour guide was good and very friendly, but the food experiences were disappointing. We were under the impression the tour included several alcoholic drinks (like most food tours across the globe)...More

Nice blend of sites, good bites, and local history. Easy walk (no stairs), a fine way to spend the morning.

Thanks for you nice review! That's exactly what we wanted: take you where the real Florentines go, for lunch and dinner, for a glass of wine or for a quick espresso. Hope to see you again, maybe on our amazing food tour in Milan! Regards
