The whole experience with Daniela is marvelous. She will meet you in town, but the market tour may be minimal depending on time of day as it’s primarily at morning market. No worry she has already got more food planned and prepared then you can eat. Multiple courses, cheese, meat, deserts, wine and grappa. She will drive you to their appartment and on their patio you will enjoy a fantastic meal. Use google translate to communicate. Her husband is a character and he collects paintings and is happy to talk about art or cars (former mechanic). Easily the most memorable experience of our vacation. We felt like we were at home with our Italian grandparents. Just one more desert before you go! And then yet another :) She took has back downtown to our car afterwards. In total it was a 4 hour experience. They do this multiple times a week and have hosted hundreds of guests. They love meeting people and it’s incredible how friendly and open they were. Enjoy !

We had an amazing trip from Florence to Cinque Terre. Luciana was our guide & is an incredibly warm, intelligent guide who took excellent care of us. She was very thoughtful, proactive, incredibly well organized, & gave us options at multiple junctions. She gave us so much good historical background on each city we visited & those we drove thru. She is so knowledgeable about the vegetation in Cinque Terre & provided excellent info,p that was invaluable I can’t say enough positive about how wonderful Luciana is to her clients. She made our day so incredibly special & that has given us lasting memories. GetYourGuide n no Tours are very fortunate to have such an effective ambassador representing them.

Daniela was an excellent host. I really enjoyed going to the market with her and then back to her home to cook and enjoy a great lunch. Daniela even purchase a couple of items I had pointed out that I liked while touring the market.

The tour was great and Daniela was an excellent tour guide. She was very personable and friendly.

Extraordinary experience, real flavors, passion and local products! I recommend 100%
