good

Guided tour through historic Florence - entertaining overview, limited to the essentials, as with 1.5 hours only a narrow period is available. However, this was known in advance and was in line with our personal planning. The also 1,5 hour long food tour consisted of three stations (more is not possible in this period), 2x wine with a mixed cheese/sausage plate and at the end of station 3 an ice cream. It was all very tasty, the selected location really authentic and stylish and the small group size was very pleasant. Personally, we would only have liked a little more variety in the tastings. All in all, however, the price-performance ratio is right for the entire offer and we had an informative, entertaining time.

The city tour at noon was very interesting and not too long. Afterwards the culinary tour through Florence was also very well organized and one gets to know many new wines The guide we had on both tours was very good!

The stations of the "Leckermäulchen Tour" should be better to stick to each other, so that one does not get offered the same thing twice. Otherwise both tours were really great and the guides were very competent. The tour is highly recommended

Very informative and entertaining city tour in the afternoon. The evening tour was great. We would not have visited the 3 visited locations without a guided tour.

great

expert guidance, surprising places

great

The city tour was very informative. The absolute highlight, however, was the "Leckermäulchen Tour". We had booked the tour with 3 people and were also the only guests. Our guide Teresa was great. She led us to really good and typical restaurants and there was a great selection of typical Tuscan delicacies with very good wine. Teresa was so sympathetic, we felt very comfortable. She also gave us great tips for restaurants that turned out to be great

There is no better way to show the cuisine of the region! Would book the tour again immediately. The guide was excellent, here I would give the grade 1.

great

Although it was very hot, the guides always made sure that we were doing well and that we were well informed even in the shade. Questions were also answered in detail. The evening food tour was very tasty and is absolutely recommendable.

We had a guided tour of Florence in the morning. It was very informative, interesting and entertaining. Our city guide was a native speaker of German. That made understanding effortless. In the evening we took part in the "Leckermäulchentour" in a small group and that was great. Theresa has led us through 4 places that are rather overlooked as a tourist, and she has explained the Florentine delicacies with sparkling joy and energy. A great experience! Highly recommended!

Description

Have you ever wondered why Florence became the birthplace of the Renaissance?

Discover facts and secrets of over 2,000 years of Florentine history, from the city’s Roman origins to a 15th century palace, from the Ponte Vecchio, through the famous Uffizi courtyard, to the wonder of the architecture of Brunelleschi’s Dome which overlooks the Baptistery's golden “Gates of Paradise”. Have a close encounter with this fascinating city and get a better understanding of the background and context of its place in history.

At the end of the day have a taste of traditional Florentine delights with THE GOURMET’S TOUR. On our way through the city center we shall take gourmet pit stops in typical Florentine bars, shops and eateries. As well as a delight for our eyes, this little excursion, in which wine and typical Tuscan foods are the undisputed protagonists, will tickle our palates.

The assortment of traditional Florentine products, for example cheese and salami, will taste even better with a glass of fine Chianti wine in one of the numerous quaint Osterias. Not to forget the famous Vin Santo with the delicious almond cookies from Prato, and finally, a wonderful Gelato made by a true professional with all the proper fresh ingredients.
