Culinary Guides for Florence and Venice
I'm travelling to Florence and Venice in October, and looking to find the kind of tour guide that'll take you to a few different bars / restaurants / shops / etc for different things to eat over the course of an afternoon.
We've found a couple of tour companies that offer that sort of thing as a larger group tour, but would be interested in smallish (4-6 people) groups or possibly private to us (2 people) depending on the rates.
I can recommend Italy Hotline. They have a great set up in Florence and Venice, and give excellent culinary tours of those cities.
I'd also recommend Judy Witts, www.divinacucina.com. Judy does fantastic market days in a small town just outside of Florence, followed by really fun cooking lessons.
