It was very interesting learning about the city and visiting some older establishments . Being private was excellent , I just don’t believe the tasting we had came close to the price we paid, as mostly bakery type items

Elisabetta was so welcoming, smart, fun and kind. We all (ages 18, 18, 22 and 53) enjoyed our time so much we truly forgot to take pictures! We were very much 'in the moment', and would take another tour with her, for sure!

Antonella was a fantastic guide. She made arrangements for us with vegetarian options, and it’s not just a food tour it’s also local history. She sent us a long list of recommendations for restaurants. Couldn’t have been better - thanks Antonella!

Matteo was first class in his tour guide experience. First he asked what I wanted to eat, I asked for local Firenze style food and he took care of it. The food selection was next level amazing, the ‘Papa pomodoro’ changed my life, I would of never thought to even try this dish, thank you so much! Wow!!

I always enjoy doing food and wine tours when in a new city. This one was spot on! We went to a part of Florence I have never been to before. The food choices were all amazing and A LOT! And the drink was spectacular! If you are in Florence, I highly recommend doing this tour.

What a great way to see and enjoy the flavors of Florence. Gianni was an amazing guide and we thoroughly enjoyed our day with him. We met at 10am and couldn’t eat any more after our tour had ended! In fact we took some leftovers up to Piazza Michelangelo for sunset!!

Great Florentine food tour with Christy!
KristineA_R
, May 2022
Christy was our guide for a wonderful food tour of Florence. We started at one market and ended at the Central Market with several delicious stops in between. With Christy’s help, we tasted coffees, pastries, pastas, olive oils, aged Balsalmics, sweets, cheese, and wine. Along the way, Christy provided insights into Florentine life, history and food customs. All eight of our group enjoyed her tour and speaking with her about Florentine life. She is a very professional guide who factors in her audience’s preferences and interests. We highly recommend her tour.

This was an excellent food tour to take! Stefania did a great job taking us around all the little hidden food places in Florence. We tried some things we never would have found on our own and had some excellent little bites. It was a real plus to have a local to explore with, tell us some history, and give us a perspective we wouldn't have had otherwise!

We had a wonderful experience on our Food & Drink tastings tour in Florence. Our guide Elisabetta made the day special with her friendly demeanor while providing historical and cultural insights during the tour. We felt like we had met a friend who gave us a personal tour of Florence. We’d highly recommend this Viator tour.
