Linda was a fantastic guide, so knowledgeable. We had a fantastic afternoon experiencing the best gelato, cheese, wine, truffle oil, balsamic, ham, chocolate etc. It did not feel like we were out and about for nearly 3 hours. We learned a lot about how to look closely at labels for good oil, wine and vinegar. Also learned a good tip about spotting 'real' gelato. It was good to visit some of the smaller authentic places. Loved the Grana Market. It was a real pleasure being in Linda's company enjoying local produce. The best part of our holiday!

My boyfriend and I, joined by another couple, took the Florence Foodies Walk on 17th July 2014. Our guide was Natale, a Florentine local who took us for tastings of gelato (honestly, some of the best I've ever eaten - and believe me, I've eaten a lot!), wine, cheese, cured meat, balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Natale exudes a quiet, but undeniably passionate love for Florence and its exceptional food and wine. We felt very privileged to join him on this tour and gain a glimpse into some wonderfully authentic, local vendors. We had but one day in Florence, and we're very glad to have spent our afternoon discovering delicious foods with Natale rather than sweating it out in the heat with the huge crowds! Natale also set us up for a fantastic evening with a really great local dinner recommendation after the tour. All in all, we were very happy to have dipped into Florence's food culture with Urban Adventures!

This was my first tour when I arrived in Florence. Linda was a fantastic guide. She was great to talk to and was very knowledgeable about her city, the food, and wine. If I ever find myself back in Florence, I would definitely go on the Apertivo Time! Florence Wine tour again. It was that much fun!!

Our guide Linda was fabulous and she was originally from our home town so we had a lot of laughs. Linda was so knowledgable and easy to listen to. She took us to some wonderful local establishments, explaining the culture and stories behind each one. Loved, loved our tour. And now we are gelato experts we are very fussy we we get it from lol.

This is the "must do" trip to take on your first day in Florence. We had a fantastic introduction to the places to go and what to ask for. Our guide Linda was extremely passionate about Florence, it's food, cultures and the people of Florence. Thank you Linda for firing us up for the rest of our trip, we did manage to get back to quite a lot of the places we visited and my wife has now discovered her love of truffle!! And the cheese and chocolate combination gelati was awesome! We will certainly make sure we do one of these trips where ever we go in the world.
