Really wonderful food tour. Delia our guide was very helpful and insightful and gave us an excellent tour of some local Genovese restaurants along with additional recommendations. Would recommend to anyone looking to get excellent local recommendations. A lot of food is given on the tour so Id recommend skipping breakfast beforehand!

Wow! This is a great way to know the city and it's food. We had a terrific time with Marina. We only had one day in Genua and wanted to get to know the city a little bit better ánd we love food, so this tour was THE tour to book! We were flabbergasted, the city of Genua is rough, but so beautiful. We loved every aspect of it. And Marina took us to the best places to have local food. We tasted a lot and it was all GOOD :-). Marina is a very nice host, she really loves her city and she can tell you all about the local food habits and why it is the way it is. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! (And if you meet Marina, please say hello from us, Willeke and Lydia)

We could not be happier with our tour in Genoa. Valeria was so knowledgable and personable. It was like we had a cousin in Genoa! Out of all the tours we have had in all our travels, this one was the best! We thought we were on a food tour and we were- great food and excellent variety and selection of local authentic food, but we also got a great historical city tour too. What a wonderful experience! Highly recommend Do Eat Better and Valeria in particular.

Our guide Francesca, was very knowledgeable about the food during the tour and also knew so much about Genova, it’s history and customs. We really enjoyed her company. The food was delicious. We were absolutely stuffed by the end of the tour. There was just the right amount of walking too, not too much or too little. We learned so much on the tour and would highly recommend it.

My wife and me were lucky enough to have our guide Beatrice exclusively for us. She showed us some eateries which we certainly would have overseen by ourselves. And the food was absolutely authentic and wonderful. Certainly the best focaccia and pesto we've ever tried! And Beatrice is a very friendly and communicative person. Being from Genoa, she knows a lot about that city. For us it was like meeting a local friend who shares some of his favourite places with us. Highly recommended!

Nice walking tour through the old city of Genua. Tour lasted about 3h, we had Marina as a guide. She was very friendly and she was able to answer all of our questions, she definitely knew a lot about the city. During the tour we stopped at 5 locations for a bite (more like a small meal as the portions were pretty large, so you won't be hungry afterwards!). The food was extremely good.

Simply amazing! Our guide Marina was super nice and friendly, she truly made us feel like we are touring with a friend. The food was amazing and the tour was very informative and interesting - exactly what we were looking for. We went to 4 restaurants, and had a bit more food than the picture shows (plus wine and an amazing cappuccino)! :) Highly recommend!!

We’ve done quite a few food walking tours in various European cities, and this one was up there with the best of them. Beatrice was a fantastic guide. It was like spending three hours with a friend as she guided us through the network of medieval streets. We had sooooo much food - way more than on other tours we’ve done - and it was all amazing. We did the Traditional Food Tour which differs from the Streetfood Tour because you get to sit down in restaurants rather just walking as you eat. Beatrice took us to some hidden gems, which we’d never have found on our own (and we’d done our research too). I can’t recommend this tour highly enough as a great introduction to the town and its food. Thanks Beatrice x

What a fantastic experience! Marina showed us around the city and fed us some absolutely delicious and wonderful meals. It was so much fun to get the local perspective, hear some history, and, of course, eat! We were stuffed by the end, but thoroughly happy. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone in the area.

We had an amazing tour with Valeria! We only had one day in Genoa and we started our day with this tour. The food was amazing, and she gave us so much information about the city as well. The perfect way to introduce yourself to the city and learn about the food of the region! Highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting!
