Fabulous tour, definitely worth doing.
Diana was a great guide, great food and wine to taste - the pasta was especially good. Certainly didn't need lunch after the tour!
Plenty of information about the food/wine and local area, but not too much so that you get overwhelmed by it.

Good food, good wine. Tour includes information about architecture, including fun facts such as the first advertising sign -- a whalebone hanging from an archway signifying a pharmacist had set up shop there. Food included coffee and ricini rice-based pastry and bombini custard-filled and apricot jam-filled pastries a soft salami called soppressa and Monte Veronese cheese with sliced bread three wines locally produced -- Soave Classico, Lugana, and Amarone della Valpolicella cin! cin! tortelloni large tortellini freshly made that day and gelato. Our tour guide was Kristina. She was very informative and led a nicely paced tour, not rushed and not too slow, with a good choice of local vendors.

This was a highlight of our stay in Verona. We found out so much about the city as well as the local customs surrounding food. Irena was lovely, so friendly and easy to talk to and she obviously had good relationships with all the vendors we visited.We went back to each venue during our stay, to experience the food on offer again and hopefully will do so again when we return to Verona. Hoping you had a brilliant day for your wedding, Irena.

We really enjoyed the trip and Irene was an excellent guide unfortunately it was not the trip that we had paid for. On the previous description at time of booking the trip was supposed to finish with lunch in a delicatessen, this did not happen. Nor did we get to see Tortellini being made which had been included in the description. Having said that, the coffee/pastry, meat and cheese tasting, wine tasting and the opportunity to try polenta with unusual toppings were enjoyable. We also finished with a Gelato which was delicious. A good tour but not at all as described.

We were a few minutes late had trouble finding the meeting place, but an employee very nicely helped us meet up with the group at the first stop. It was nice to learn about the food in Verona as well as learn more about its history, and it was fun to meet the other members of our small group. I also really enjoyed getting to ask questions of our guide to find out what it's like to live in such an interesting city. The different stops were fun, and the food selections were tasty.
