Delicious tastes of Como whilst seeing & learning about the city!
Nick_M, Aug 2022
What a great way to see & hear a bit about Como whilst enjoying delicious local Italian food along the way. Josephine was a great guide, very knowledgeable with an equal love for all things tasty!! Small group, intimate tastings at venues (no pressure to buy their products) & topped off by an above average pasta lunch on the waterfront. Highly recommend.
More than a food tour!

Perfect food/history tour of Como.

The tour was incredible, and our host Josie was so knowledgeable about both the town of Como and its history, as well as the local food scene. I would definitely recommend if you have a few hours in Como!

My husband and I truly enjoyed our time with Christina touring around Como. She was informative and very friendly. The food was delicious and we ended up taking quite a bit of goodies home with us to enjoy later with our family. Cannot recommend this tour enough!

My fellow travelers and I had the pleasure of taking a tour this past week in Como with Maddalena. She is a lovely, personable young lady who has an extensive knowledge of all things Como. She told us all about the history of the city itself, shared in-depth information on notable historical sites Iike the Duomo, and shared many wonderful culinary delights with us. I cannot recommend her or the tour highly enough! We took the twilight tour, and we completely sated with delicious food from dolce to antipasti, pizza and focaccia to vino and salumi! Then....a lovely traditional pasta dinner! Grazie mille a tutti per una serrata bellissima!

There was ALOT of food! Many stops with a small group and a fine guide who really knew her town. There is an add-on for lunch or dinner, depending on the time of your tour - believe me, you will not be hungry. Everybody in our group had opted out of the additional meal. Save your money and go for a gelato instead. We had made an independent lunch reservation which we kept out of courtesy and struggled through a shared appetizer. The tour meets exactly in front of the tourist office in the Como square you will see other larger tour groups around the square - these are not yours just FYI.

This tour was excellent! Our guide was so friendly and knowledgeable, and the group was small so we didn't feel like we were in a massive mob. The food was good, and created a nice break between walking through the city and getting all the fun facts!

This is so much more than a food tour although by the end you will definitely be ready to pass on lunch. Madallania, our charming and engaging guide, knows the Lake region well and was able to share history, architecture and culture as well as bringing us to sample some of Como's enticing treats. It was an enlightening and fun 2.5 hours leisurely strolling the pretty city of Como with someone who felt like a native. Highly recommended.

Our guide was local and knew the city. We are foodies so thought this would be a good way to walk around and taste the flavors of the town. She took us to a number of food establishments but her food selections were not good examples of the best local cuisine! Take a boat or lift tour of Lake Como to really soak in the ambience. It is a nice town.
