This tour was a great 'taster' (pardon the pun) for all the market has to offer. Saturday morning is a peak time so full of hussle and bustle but I really enjoyed that. Our guide had cool stories and arranged lots of tastings which was great. Highlight was hearing about Lucia's market stall/cafe deli and the history and the sample pasta sauce to take home. We went back to Lucia's for fresh pasta and cheese and had pasta alla Lucia for dinner which was great. Highly recommend.

Absolutely amazing! Could not recommend this tour enough to anyone who wants a little bit of history, a lotta bit of amazing local food and an amazing amount of good company in the form of your knowledgeable guide.

The guide was very informative and in tune with her group as well as the stall holders as well.

Great tour, very informative guide and lots and lots of great food to sample.

A great way to see the markets!! Excellent guide ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
