Rating:★★★★★ "We did a private pizza making and wine tasting with Curious Appetite while visiting Florence. Coral was extremely helpful in suggestions before we arrived and knew exactly what we were looking for in an experience. Once we arrived everything was organised perfectly complete with a few surprises too and we had the most wonderful and informative class on Pizza! After that we took in the sights and sounds of Florence on our way to a wine bar where we got a lesson in the wines of Tuscany. Overall it was a fantastic day, ran seamlessly and mostly was great fun. Coral was an amazing guide. We would recommend anyone looking to not only see Florence but feel and taste it too to do one of these tours, it will totally bring out the vibe and culture of what is more than a beautiful city” - Chris & Sam, South Africa

Rating:★★★★★ "I recently referred Curious Appetite to my clients for a personalized aperitivo tasting in Florence. Not only were they so thrilled with the experience, they were talking about it all the next day! Coral is not only an expert in her field of food, wine and specialty cocktails, but she tell stories and provides background info that truly explains the artistry behind what makes the Italian culinary experience so special and unique. Curious Appetite Travel will take you to some of the best and hidden locations in Florence and you get the feeling they are enjoying it just as much as you! I will absolutely work with these guys again without a doubt!" - Shari H.

Rating:★★★★★ "Our day in Tuscany was absolutely the highlight of our trip. First of all, we felt like we were hanging out with old friends all day. Coral's choice of locations to visit was superb. There is no way we would have found such charming and delicious family run places on our own. I have been raving about our day with you and will absolutely recommend you to friends and family traveling to the Florence region. Thank you for an amazing day we will never forget!" - Leah & Nick, USA

Rating:★★★★★ "So glad I took the dinner crawl! One of the chefs described all the different types of pasta they were currently making, and he explained what types of food go with certain types of pasta. The chefs spoke decent English but our guide was able to help with the translation. She was very good about accommodating any dietary needs/requests. The stops definitely felt more authentic Italian than other trattorias in Florence. We felt like we enjoyed an amazing dinner with good friends. Even though we just met that night. Overall it was well worth it and our guide was so great at explaining everything and answering all of our questions, plus she was great company. Thank you!" - Julia & Julian, USA

Rating:★★★★★ "Throughout our Aperitivo experience in Florence, the wonderful Coral provided us with a wealth of information and knowledge of Italian wines, food and Florence. Any traveller would be well advised to get in touch with Curious Appetite and request something similar - it is well worth the investment to see some of the city you might never reach."  - G & A Young, Canada

Rating:★★★★★ "I had such a great time with the Aperitivo crawl, really learned a lot and ate the best cheese and ham and drank some amazing drinks and wine. I thought each stop was so well thought out and being a foodie myself, I can be super picky! I'd love to do more the next time I come to town."  - Traveler, London, England

Rating:★★★★★ "Curious Appetite's recommendations for restaurants and gelaterie in Florence were spot-on, and her assistance for our trip to Italy was invaluable. With her guidance, we didn't have to worry about getting caught in a tourist-trap restaurants, even though we were eating in one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. We had a wonderful time in Florence. Great service and delicious food at every restaurant and the olive oil tasting was fabulous. These services are great for first timers to Italy. Our trip to Italy was the best, best, best. Thanks so much for your help." - J & M Hornby, Washington, USA

Rating:★★★★★ "Our trip was amazing thanks to your help!  Our Aperitivo tour in Florence was fun and our food tour was delicious! The Chianti wine and food tour you recommended was everything we were looking for -- intimate and tasty! In addition to the delightful Tuscan wines, local cheese, cured meats and olive oil we sampled, our guide shared his wealth of knowledge about Tuscan wine making, local agriculture and artisan food production. Thank you for the great experience and attention."  - Lisa & Amber, Canada

Rating:★★★★★ "When looking for a private food and wine experience, it created a certain sense of comfort knowing Coral was both American and Italian and would know exactly what we were trying to communicate and that we could trust in her to translate our specific needs to our new, local friends to make sure we received exactly what we were looking for. She also impressed us with her research and preparedness. Asking us a number of intelligent, probing questions to get to know me and my wife better, our likes and dislikes, and organized a food and wine experience to our needs. In the end, it was exactly what we were looking for.  Even now, several months later, my wife and I still talk about that three hour food and wine lunch we had in Florence, which included the guided expertise of the establishment's sommelier. It was the best dining experience we ever had.  We are grateful to the team for their investment in our experience and we will certainly look Curious Appetite again the next time we go to Florence." - L & S Rogers, Massachusetts, USA
