What foods is your city known for?
Rome: Pasta, such as bucatini all'amatriciana Florence - Bistecca alla fiorentina
London: Fish and chips (but there's so much more!)
Amsterdam: The Indonesian cuisine
Prague: The amazing beer!
What neighborhoods should people visit when they come to your city?
We're actually in Rome, Florence, London, Amsterdam and Prague! So lots of neighborhoods to choose from. However, Testaccio and Trastevere in Rome, and the Jordaan in Amsterdam, are important parts of our tours in those cities. They're the slightly less-known places where we help you discover the best food secrets.
What is the best time of year to visit your city?
All year round?! Ok, that's not helpful! I think just off-peak season (or the 'shoulder season' as travel industry geeks say), which is usually Autumn/Winter, is very often a great time to visit. The flights are cheaper, the weather is actually quite romantic and the touristy spots are quieter.
What can people expect on your food tours?
Our tours are funny, interesting, eye-opening and satisfying! They're small groups of no more than 12 people, so you get a warm, friendly experience with a trained and trustworthy guide. Our customers are more than satisfied with the amount and variety of food and drink, and the tours are incredibly well-reviewed - do please just Google for Eating Italy, Eating London, Eating Amsterdam or Eating Prague, and you should see quickly what people think about us. My favorite thing about our tours is how you get really interesting bits of local history as you go round, which - combined with the local food - really brings the city to life.
