I recently had the pleasure of taking a food tour in Florence, and I must say, it was an incredible experience. The tour was led by Kopal who was such a knowledgeable and friendly guide who took us to some of the best food spots in the city. The food was fantastic, the guide was excellent, and the tour was well organised and enjoyable from start to finish. 5 stars!

Amazing! I learnt so much about the food of Florence and Tuscany and all the history, traditions and stories behind it. The food was outstanding and our guide Kopal was so knowedgeble, but also great fun. We feel like we made a new friend!

Lisa was exceptional in describing the Florentine culture and pairing the food tour to the cheeses and wines of the region. The tour was entertaining and well done. Good job!

I got really excited! It was a beautiful sunny day in Tuscany. Not only the leaning tower, there is so much to discover and I was very surprised by Saint Gimigagno!

Fantastic guide and great time was had by all. We loved it
