    There was plenty of great food and drinks as well thanks to the drink card. With more interaction and stories such as Grandmas 7 hour lunch and where the rooster symbol comes from on the Chianti bottles our guide has the potential to bring the tour up to 5 stars soon!

    Our guide was excellent! She knew where to take us for the best food experience in Florence. We had a great time and ate some wonderful treats. A lot of food, we were so full at the end of the tour. Skip dinner or you won’t be able to enjoy all there is to offer. I would do this again or recommend it to anyone going to Florence. A must do!
