The tour was good, I liked it, but I have to admit it was not so much interesting in information. I was expecting a bit more about local specialties, traditions, Chianti wine and Florentine meat, I thought, its worth mentioning a bit more history about it. Food tasting points are way too many and some are not really worth it. The guide was very good and easy.

The favorite part of our Florence stay!

Cristina was fantastic! Much high praise for her. The tastings were delicious and varied plus it made for a great walking tour of the city. Do this first and you'll really have your bearings. We went back and bought some wines, balsamic, and olive oil based on our tour experience. You WANT to do this tour!!!

Fantastic tour

We had a great time and Christina was brilliant. She was funny, knowledgeable and spoke great English. The tour was well organized and the different stops were really good. I have certain food allergies and before the tour Christina made sure that I would not have any problems on the stops. I loved it and would do that tour again if we came to Florence.
