This tour is perfect if you would like to immerse yourself into Tuscan culinary tradition and discover which its typical food and drinks are. To really understand a foreign culture it’s very important to learn what, how and why people eat in a specific way and what better place then a city food market would help you do that?!?

We will be walking through this food market so that I can show you how we do our grocery shopping and how we interact with the vendors so that they can suggest us what to buy and how to cook it.  We will stop for a while in front of the best stands so that you can see what they are selling and I can tell you the history that it’s hidden behind a specific food or recipe and you will be surprised to learn how old some of our food tradtions are.

This tour will help you understand how food represents culture for us italians and that all processes behind a cooked dish are as important as its taste: that’s why I like to call it a food experience tour.

Hosted By Martina

Martina

Hey! My name is Martina and I'm a licensed tour guide and Personal Shopper of Florence in Italian, English and Chinese. I grew up in Naples where I graduated in International Relations and Asian Studies but I also studied in Florence to become an offical tour guide and that's where I have been living and working fot the past 6 years.
Since I was 15 years old I have started to travel around the world by myself both for study and for pleasure and I had the chance to live in South Africa, Switzerland, Germany and China for a while.
These experiences helped me develop a great ability to adapt and interact with different cultures and habits which are also the reasons why I have always wanted to work in contact with other people.
I am very passionate about food and craftsmanship which are some of the most distinctive features of Florence and Italy in general, so I love discovering new little shops sellings special local handmade products and tasting some delicious typical food with my guests.
Florence has so many things to offer and I can't wait to show you around!

How does it work?

Live Tours are carried out by our hosts, who are outdoors, on location and connected live to you via video call at all times.

Live on Location

Live Tours aren’t virtual, they are live! Meaning we don’t use Google Streetview, nor will we show you a Powerpoint presentation.

Our hosts will walk around with you whilst being connected live via video call at all times. If we offer a Live Tour in Lima, it really means your host will actually walk through the streets of Lima with you!

Personal, Private and Exclusive

Even more personal than a regular phone call, your host will be connected to you via video call - and they will be connected only to you!

Live Tours aren't conference rooms full of strangers. Your host will be there exclusively for you, so you can ask them questions at any time, ask them to look at some details or even to quickly turn into a street off route - just for you!

Not only will you be able to travel the world, you will also get to know a local professional who is going to be thrilled to show you around and share their knowledge and experience with you :)

Invite your Friends along for free

Your host will only be connected to you, but you can invite up to 5 friends to enjoy the experience together - as long as you are all in front of one device, your device: your phone, tablet, laptop, or computer.

If your friends can't be with you, add a Group Ticket to your booking for an additional 5 devices!

Free cancellation up to 48 hrs

If you cannot reschedule, you can cancel your booking up to 48 hrs for a full refund.

Stabilised Camera

Some of our hosts use a gimbal to stabilise their phones for a super smooth experience! Look out for this feature in the listings.

What about timezones?

If you're in a different time-zone to your host, the website will show the selected time-slot in your local time in blue.

But not to worry, your host will double check the booked time with you and you can adjust timings if necessary!

How do I pay for my booking?

We accept all major Credit Cards, Apple Pay, Google Pay and PayPal. WalkWithMe Tours will act on behalf of the host, so once you've made the payment, you don't have a payment obligation to the host anymore.
