Daniella was outstanding!! It was like hanging out with an extremely knowledgeable friend. She is a sommelier and it is obvious. We saw the sights, tasted some tasty bites and overall, got to see a whole lot more of Milan than we would have on our own.
This company is wonderful- a MUST for all foodies- ask for Linda G. for your guide- she is so knowledgeable about everything food, and Rome and its neighborhoods as well! Our custom food tour (Walking Palates included EVERYTHING we asked for) took us to Trastevere to meet Piero the King of Porchetta, then to Testaccio for amazing food stops with craft beer and wine tastings, and lastly to an epic bakery with a Linda arranged amazing birthday cake for my wife! Four hours of great food, local learning, and laughs! Linda even stayed in touch afterwards and via emails directed us to the best in restaurants on the Amalfi Coast, Florence, and more great food shops and restaurants in Rome- she truly is amazing, and Walking Palates was a pleasure to work with in setting it all up
This was a wonderful evening tour with Lucia. She explained the history and production behind all the different foods we tasted, going to places I would never have found on my own. We sampled brushetta, two kinds of pasta, charcuterie, delicious wines, sweets at a local bakery, and gelato. We even explored a small bio/organic grocery store. Several of the stops were in the neighborhood of Sant'Ambrogio, which is adjacent to the historic center but a "regular" neighborhood off of the beaten tourist track. Lucia was thoughtful and excellent company, and made me feel most welcome in Florence. This tour is an excellent value and a delightful way to spend an evening.
