Benedetta is such a lovely person and a wonderful guide. After meeting our small group on a misty morning, she took us on a journey through the city that left us impressed and in food comas we have yet to emerge from. A great experience and even better company in one of the world’s most beautiful cities.

Unfortunately the tour was a complete disappointment. A list of the restaurants we went to would have been just as good. The host was not knowledgeable about food, cooking, or the city. Any knowledge she may have had she kept to herself. The guide also got lost walking between the restaurant which resulted us in walking in circles for a total of 8km and the tour lasting for more than 4 hours. The dishes advertised on the website were not server. We we served the same cold cuts and cheese at two restaurants but never received coccholi and the
Vin santo was missing from the ice cream. Upon being confronted about these deficiencies the guide got hostile and very unprofessional. In short - Save your Money and go to a restaurant.

I'm sorry, but your representation of the tour is offensive and unfair. To begin with, the tour started at 6.30 pm and finished at 10.15 pm, so it was a bit more than 3,5 hours as planned. We sincerely apologise if the tour was longer than you expected, but as the guide kindly explained to you, he only took a longer route to show you a different and enjoyable part of Florence and our local expert was not lost. Also, it's not true that the salumi were the same, the first time you had finocchiona and Tuscan salami and the second sbriciolona and spalla along with the traditional schiacciata. Perhaps the salumi may look similar to the eye but are very different in taste. So we ask you to check better. As for the dishes, the description says that some of the dishes (and not all) will be served depending on availability and season and in summer we also serve ice cream in one of the best ice cream shops in Florence.

We had an amazing time on our tour! Sacha was an excellent tour guide. She was so friendly, informative, and truly gave us an authentic Italian food experience. We went places and ate foods that we otherwise never would have thought to eat. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone!

Visiting Florence with my husband, brother and sister in law, I thought it would be a great way to look around Florence by doing a food tour. There are so many to chose from but luckily I decided to pick this one. Our host Paola was lovely, her English was excellent and she got on well with our English Humour. I was sent a text message before hand telling me where to meet and giving me a picture of Paola, which is a good idea.

Our first stop was a wine shop/bar where we had a lovely glass of wine and some savoury bits. Paola also showed us where the indoor food market is, which is where today’s visit will be!
We then went to four other places having pasta, soup, street food and ice cream. We did lots of walking and had lots of food, so it was perfect . We went round at our own pace stopping to look at things we were interested in..The food was exceptional with great service and friendly Italians .
I would highly recommend this tour for anybody spending a few days in Florence .

Paola was a fantastic tour guide! She was easy to find at our meeting spot given that the Do Eat Better Experience booking team sent me an email that included her photo. Great idea, and I wish more tour companies would do that! We had a small tour group with just 4 of us, Paola, included. We started with a wine and food tasting at a wine shop (Chianti, salami and bread, pecorino cheese and bread with a sundried tomato spread). Then we headed to a local restaurant for a choice of pastas - vegetarian and meat-lover options available. The 3rd stop was my favorite - Il Coccolo for coccoli (fried bread dough), stracchino (soft cheese) and proscuitto - YUM! 4th stop was a restaurant that served 2 types of soup - tomato soup with bread to thicken it and a vegetable soup that was also very thick. And if you have any room left, you end the evening at a gelato shop. So delicious, wonderful conversation and I highly recommend the tour. Oh - and you can purchase a drink card to also have alcoholic beverages at each stop (wine at most with one stop having beer options). I recommend this too!

My husband and I were accompanied by a gregarious Sacha, who took us on a lovely walking tour to various places we would never have discovered on our own as visitors. Be sure to come hungry as there is a LOT of food. Also wear comfortable shoes as you will be exploring the city a bit (and the walking does help digest!). It was a lovely evening, and Sacha clearly felt passionate about teaching us about the Tuscan culinary ways. Would highly recommend this tour!

What a great time! Poala took us to so many unique eateries in Florence and introduced us to local culture. My teenage kids, my husband and I chatted the whole time with Poala as she took us from one yummy place to another. Highly recommend for anyone visiting Florence.

We had a great day! Sacha is very personable and funny. We laughed a lot over the course of the day. I love to indulge in new food experiences, and she took us to places that my niece didnt even know about after living here a couple of months. Everything was tasty. We upgraded to add the extra drinks. Well worth it. We did a lot of walking which counterbalanced the eating so we felt refreshed at the end. Highly recommend for a memorable day! It's fun to be with someone who is passionate about what they do.
