Gastronomic delights & more in Genoa
Kathy_S, Sep 2023
Wonderful excursion in Genoa! Our delightful guide, Marina, introduced us to a delicious variety of food of the city. She also shared some history of Genoa & suggested other sights to see. Especially good tour for those who have limited time too see Genoa (such as cruise ship travelers). I would enthusiastically recommend this activity!
Awesome excursion
Cory_S, Sep 2023
Marina was a terrific guide (kind and personable) and made the excursion very enjoyable. Food was excellent at every stop. Pay a little extra as the drink card is worth it and makes things easier.
Sabine was a very good...
Maureen_R, Sep 2023
Sabine was a very good knowledgeable guide. Learned many things about the area but just about the food.
Great experience!
Brian_S, Sep 2023
Food was delicious but our tour guide, Samantha, was delightful, knowledgeable and it was so enjoyable listening to her and chatting.
Amazing food and walking tour
stacey_h, Sep 2023
Sabine was a total gem, and made our walking tour of Genoa a great experience. She took us around the old and new parts of the city, and had lots of great information to share. And the food! Delicious fritto misto, the best focaccia I've ever had, amazing pesto pasta, focaccia pizza, and gelato. We are all totally stuffed by the end of the tour. Sabine gave us a tip about how to get to a free lift that would give us a great view of the city after the tour, and it did not disappoint. We took several different food tours in France and Italy during our trip, and this was one of the best ones. Don't hesitate to book it!
Excellent tour for families

Enjoyed our tour of Genoa with Valeria. Great food and learned a lot about Genoa history and the best food spots in the city. Thanks Valeria!
Enjoyable walking tour
kjbobo47, Aug 2023
Marina was very knowledgeable. She explained a lot of details during the tour. I wish she would have let us know at the beginning on how many stops and foods involved. We ate too much at the beginning and was full by last stop. We did enjoy the tour.
Great way to get to know a town
Michelle_M, Aug 2023
This was my favorite excursion of our entire 12-day Europe trip. I love how we got to try such a wonderful variety of foods - places where the locals eat, not the tourists. We also got some great information about the area too. I didn't know anything about Genoa before this trip, and based on how great this excursion was, I want to come back. Marina was our guide and she was fantastic! I highly recommend this tour!
The food was great and...
Lynn_M, Aug 2023
The food was great and really enjoyed leaning about how it was made, food history, and how to enjoy it Italian-style (who knew you could dip focaccia in milk foam?). Marina was a terrific guide and made the trip even more enjoyable
Great food

Eating our Way Thru Genoa
Alicia_L, Jun 2023
We easily found our tour mtg spot. Our guide messaged a few days before with the mtg location & a picture of her. Sabine our tour guide was informative & very knowledgeable about Genoa. We went to five delicious food spots while learning about Genoa. Sabine took us to a fried seafood, focaccia, some type of Italian cheese quiche, pizza, & gelato spots. All were delicious! Such a great way to see Genoa!
One of the Best Food Tours we ever experienced in the world!
John_D, Jun 2023
Valeria was a great tour guide. and made this one of the best food tours we have gone on in our traveling history. She lived in the area that we toured and had great information about the history of the port area and downtown. Every eating establishment that she took us to was top notch. There was not one bad tasting that we had. They were all exceptional.
Loved our Genoa tour!
Leigh_J, Jun 2023
Tour guide was great! Very informative and friendly. We stopped at 5 different places, including one for a more sit-down meal with wine. Great food, interesting info on Genoa. We’d do it again! 10 in our group.
Genova Food Tour Experience
JanaL_M, Jun 2023
Marina our guide was wonderful. She was knowledgeable and interesting as she walked us through old town. She went out of her way to get to know each of us. The food and wine were so good. We would recommend to any traveler to have this experience.
A wonderful way to get to know the city!
Pamela_M, Jun 2023
Sabine was great and it was so nice to get some history and see some different areas while experiencing the local cuisine. Everything is taken care of and you can just relax and follow along and enjoy. Everything was so delicious and Sabine gave the history and context. Highly recommend!
