Our tour guide (Teddy) was fabulous. She went above and beyond to share her knowledge of Florences history, architecture, arts, culture and of course local food. I was so impressed with her ability to relate to each of us and her genuine interest in learning a little about each of us during the tour. This was by far the best food tour I have ever taken and we cannot thank our guide enough for the incredible experience she provided us. So grateful.

Exceptional tour. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Florence, whether for the first time or after many previous visits. A great way to sample the life of the city through its food and culinary traditions. Laura was a delightfully informative, entertaining and knowledgeable guide. She makes a point of tailoring her tour to meet the needs and interests of everyone with her.

Awesome food tour in Florence! Lorenzo was great! Most important advice is to start the tour hungry. Small bites from many places and it will fill you up!
