What To Expect

After meeting your guide in the historic city center, you'll begin your gourmet food tour of Florence by learning about how Tuscany's culinary history and respect for quality produce carries into how Tuscans continue to make food to this day.

Your first stop is at a delicatessen that specializes in truffles, a particularly sought-after commodity in Tuscany, and learn how locals forage for the valuable fungus. Here, you'll sample a panino tartufato, a pâté sandwich topped with shavings of those prized truffles, accompanied by a glass of sparkling prosecco.

The next stop at an artisan chocolatier allows you to treat your sweet tooth. You'll taste different chocolates in a guided tasting session, learning what sets handmade chocolates apart, before heading to a very popular shop selling Tuscan olive oils and balsamic vinegars. Here, you'll have another guided tasting, learning about the variation olive oils can have from fruity to peppery.

Wandering further from the olive oil shop, you'll indulge in a gelato treat from a beloved local gelateria and finally end your tour at a wine bar. Enjoy some warm-from-the-oven focaccia bread and a glass of one of Tuscany's most famous wines – Chianti – while you review what you've tasted and plot your next meal.

Wonderful tour!
Amy_M, Mar 2023
This was one of the highlights of our family trip to Florence! Our guide, Ava was so informative, nice and personable. She took us to several wonderful unknown local spots. Highly recommend this tour.
Perfect way to start your stay in Firenze!
Larry_E, Feb 2023
Our guide, Laura, was wonderful, very helpful, knowledgeable, and more than patient! Even though all the stops were practically within a few blocks of our meeting place, each was unique with insights and information we certainly would not have gotten otherwise! Afterwards, we had hoped we had taken this tour earlier as it would have given us some excellent options for us to return for another full meal as all were delicious!

This tour was a lot of fun and our guide was very knowledgeable. I could have done without the extra virgin olive oil
This Tour Was Well Worth the Money
Patricia_A, Nov 2022
This experience was the best. Serena (not sure about that spelling) was charming and knowledgeable. Our group was small—only four of us—and it was perfect. We did wine tasting, stopped for gelato and chocolates, cheese, olive oil tasting, sandwiches and more wine. There is also a toilet break (no charge lol). Serena gave us tips and suggestions for finding the best food in area. Book this one early in your stay for a heads up while in Florence.
Linda’s inside track
Jennifer_L, Oct 2022
Linda was great- she gave us great pointers, talked about landmarks, helped me find a red wine I actually like. We got lucky and had her all to ourselves!
Highly recommend Serena!
Jane_F, Oct 2022
Serena was wonderful!! We had such a nice group of 7 people. The pace was perfect! A little walking, then a little rest with tasting and then on to the next one. Highly recommend!
Great tour & guide!

Fab Food Tour in Florence
Charlotte_P, Mar 2022
Italy is known for its great food and you really get a chance to sample the best bits on this food tour. A great variety of food tastings included and a guide that really knew her stuff, all topped off with a lovely glass of wine at the end. The perfect tour for any foodie who wishes to learn the history of the local produce and try some of it too!
The guide was amazing...

A walk with food and wine through Florence
Donald_D, Nov 2019

Wouldn't do this again - not worth the money
Jeremy_S, Oct 2019
I've waited until our month long tour of Italy until doing my reviews so I can compare all of our experiences and unfortunately this was the worst tour of about 10 we did in Italy. You don't learn any more than you would walking the streets yourself & experiencing the food yourself. Spend your money on the walking tour instead & ask some foody questions along the way. Oh & our guide was late!
Response from Host, Feb 2020
Thank you for taking the time to write a review about our Florence Gourmet Food Tour. We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the tour and it was the worst ! All of our guides are local and certified you stop at five places to taste delicious local and seasonal fair and our guieds are never late so I find it strange that the othe people in your group left on time ?

We were looking for something fun to do in Florence with a teenager. Nemi was a great guide and shared history and food facts with us. She has a great attitude and energy. The food was tasty, too.
