Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

Wouldn't do this again - not worth the money

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!

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.

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about Florence and about the local shops that we stopped in. However, the tour itself was just not exactly what I thought it would be. I would certainly not call it a gourmet food tour as you essentially try things you can get from any local store. For example, the "food" part consisted of Prosciutto, which you can get anywhere in Italy. I have had wayyy better local gelato. The tour is in a very touristy area so all of the food is not as good as if you go deep into Florence and experience local eating. All in all, I would give the guide a 5, but the overall tour (the stops) should be wayyy better.

My daughter and I did this tour the day before we left. What a great way to end our vacation! Our tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable. Shared little tidbits of information about Florence we would have otherwise not known. Took us to the cutest little food shops that were fantastic! Left us wanting to return soon!
