We really enjoyed our Devour Tour of Florence, which got away from the standard city center. Great way to explore and learn about other parts of Florence. Our tour guide was very friendly and interactive, and he and the restaurant owners were very engaged when we asked questions. In addition to enjoying the tour, I really appreciate how the small size of the Devour Tours allows the chance for the people on the tour to get to know each other. Overall, we continue to enjoy and recommend Devour Tours as a great way to learn about and explore cities- with the added bonus of really getting to learn about these cities in an informal setting from people who live there. We have loved every tour we have done with Devour, and look forward to more in the future-

Fantastic guide and tour! Generous food and wine tastings at each stop, lots of contextual information about the food and wine of the region. Takes place in a less touristy neighborhood of Florence but within a short walking distance of the town center. Guide Jessica was amazing! Thank you!!
