If you are visiting Florence, I would strongly recommend you do this tour on the first morning there. Our guide, Elenora was absolutely amazing and full of energy and fun facts. We started off by having a typical Italian breakfast (croissant with a cappuccino), we then visited a shop and had a little more food with a glass of Prosseco, we toured the San Lorenzo Central Market and then proceeded to an olive oil an balsamic vinegar tasting. We then had lunch at a local restaurant and of course, finished off with a gelato. Overall experience was super. We also got luck in that no one else signed up for the tour that day and ended up having a private tour. DO NOT have breakfast before you go.

I surprised my fiance with this tour for his birthday during our trip to Italy. We absolutely loved it! We ended up on a private tour with Alessandro and he took us on a fun, food-filled tour around Florence. We learned a lot about the typical cuisine and tasted a delicious variety of food and drink. I would definitely recommend this to any foodies coming to Florence!

Firstly, learn from our mistake and skip breakfast. With this tour you'll only need to find your own dinner. Breakfast and lunch are covered.
Lara introduced us to the flavors of Florence. She was an excellent guide explaining the nuances of ordering and eating breakfast while standing...a traditional Italian thing. She also taught us the Italian way to eat and drink. At lunch time we had pasta which was prepared al dente (slightly undercooked). Had Lara not explained this was intentional, we would have naively asked them to finish cooking the pasta. All in all a worth while experience introducing you to the culture of Italian cuisine.
