Great combination of history and snacks!

Our guide Antonella was exceptionally knowledgeable about Lecce and we very much enjoyed the tour. Highly recommend especially early in your visit to Lecce as a great way to get familiar with the city and to identify the best places to dine and shop later. We found this to be a reasonable amount of food (mostly small snacks) and found everything to be delicious!

Great tour with very informative guide. Lecce is a very nice town that has a lot a lot to offer in history and architecture.food experience was very pleasant as it makes a small pause to relax and enjoy local food tradition and learn as well. Antonella, our guide, Is very knowledgeable and has excellent communication skills that enhance their experience. We brought our son of six years old for this trip and he has he had a great time as well, tasting, walking around and participating during whole three hours trip. I would highly recommend this experience if you’re interested in history, architecture and delicious Italian food

Antonella is an excellent guide and we learned so much more about Lecce than we had from wandering around alone with our guidebook. The street food stops were an interesting way to learn about life in this part of Italy.

This isn’t a food tasting tour

If I were rating this solely based on it being a city tour, I would rate it as 6 stars without question. The tour was extensive and so informative. Our group just loved that part of it. But it’s not priced or advertised as that - it’s priced and advertised as a food tasting tour and because of that, it isn’t worth five stars. Do not expect a street food tour that you may have experienced in other cities, these are a few snacks. You will receive a small tasting of wine at the first stop but then the expectation you will buy any drinks (including water) for the rest of the tour. Again, if you are wanting a city tour - this one is absolutely phenomenal but the company does a disservice by trying to pass this off as anything but.

Dear Andrew, Your review gives us the opportunity to make a clarification that we hope will be useful to those who want to buy this tour in the future. This tour was born from the idea of offering a smart guided tour of Lecce, rather than a classic walking tour based only on history. For this reason, we decided to add tastings of local food, in this case "street food". As such, the tastings can only be based on snacks, as specified in the tour description. Regarding the drinks, we preferred not to include them in this specific tour-product (as specified in the tour details) to allocate the whole budget in favor of as many food specialties as possible and allow each participant to drink (or not), according to his/her own preferences. Additionally, it is also necessary to emphasize that the price that each guest pays is determined not only by the food costs and the guide's remuneration, but also by service costs which we must pay and which have a significant impact on the final price. A food-tour, which might be what you expected instead, is a different type of product because, in addition to snacks, it would also include a stop in a restaurant for a 2-course meal + wine, with additional costs for at least $25/$30 and a longer duration (minimum 3h 30). We do offer this kind of tours also, but only on request. Based on what you have pointed out in your review, we will evaluate whether to reduce the number of food tastings in favour of an extra drink. Therefore, we thank you for your feedback, which gives us a chance to improve! Rosy

Disappointed

Our guide, Antonella, was a well informed, competent, and friendly guide. Unfortunately, because we were tired from a day‘s cycling, we were less receptive than we might have been, but we were satisfied with her tour. We were, however, less satisfied by the „street foods“ which were included in the packet, and in our opinion, the arrangement was overpriced. I am hesitant about writing a negative review, because I am aware of how damaging it may be, but in this case, I feel obliged to.

Great day in Lecce!

We had a great morning with Antonella—we appreciated her deep knowledge of the city and her food stops had us too full to finish the gelato at the end! She was also very patient with our 6yo daughter.

Antonella was a great tour guide. Really interesting tour of the history of Lecce, important buildings, and details of the little things about the city! Lots of tasty treats/snacks, more than filling, regretted having a large breakfast!

Zeer leerrijke tour met hier en daar een proevertje. Als je de stad op een aangename en toch leerrijke manier wil leren kennen is dit de ideale tour.
