We’ve booked many food tours with this company in the past, and they never disappoint. That being said, this was the most fun we’ve had on any past tour. Our guide, Francesco was amazing, funny and informative. That combined with great location suggestions had us laughing, learning and eating great food all night. Highly, highly recommend to others!
