The gourmet tour was great, it could've lasted longer. We even bought some of the things we tasted on the tour for at home. Highly recommendable!!!
Kind, competent and reliable. Anytime again!
A great combination of things to know about Florence and insidte tips for restaurants
By all means a really great two-parts tour. We would recommend to book it for the beginning of your visit of Florence - you will have the rewards for that if you explore the city on your own.
It was a good combination, first the historical old town and then the culinary tour. Anytime again. Our guide was very competent and gave us a good insight into the political and culinary past of Florence. Unfortunately, the last shop had closed, so we missed the culmination about which our guide was very sorry, but couldn't find a solution due to the time.
The culinary tour was great, because we got to know really good local restaurants which we often visited. Also the city tour was good. The guides were both very competent and kind.
The tour in Florence was amazing and very entertaining.
In February, I was in Florence. On both parts of the tour I was the only guest. That was really great and therefore very individual. The first part gives you a great overview and you can decide afterwards what you want to visit on your own. But the best part was the gourmet tour in the evening. Unfortunately, 1.5 hours are over in a flash. It would be great to extend this part of the tour. I would've loved to taste more delicious things.
The tour with Theresa was great. She had a competent answer to all questions. She has a very happy, friendly and funny character and is able to provide the information so that everyone paid attention until the end. The tour at the evening was average.
