    Our guide Ileana was amazing. Very knowlegeable, pleasant and kept the tour going at a leisurable pace. You get quite a few goodies on the way. All the places we visited and items we tasted were exquiste. It is a good value for money tour. One little thing, maybe better directions with regards to the meeting place. Rather than eg San Carlo square, which is 'huge' when looking for someone you don't know, you could be more specific eg underneath the statue facing the Royal Palace. Alternatively guides could hold a placard with the company name. Just a few suggestions.

    Spend a wonderful time in Turin tasting exquisite local fare that will give you a unique perspective of the area through its food. While the city is known for its mixed Baroque, Rococo, Neo-classical, and Art Nouveau architecture and other attractions – it’s the authentic food of Turin and Piedmontese territory that (literally) takes the cake.

    Along with an expert guide, you’ll explore the city on foot and take part in food tastings to really get to know what makes Turin tick. Savor local gastronomical masterpieces such as gianduiotto. It’s said to be the first solid form of chocolate, invented right here in Turin. Considered to be the ‘king of Italian chocolate’, each ingot-shaped chocolate is wrapped individually in gold foil and tastes heavenly. The result of mastering a centuries-old recipe. Savor zabaglione, a classic foamy dessert that’s been delicately whipped to perfection and is usually made with Marsala wine. As you go through these tastings, listen to interesting anecdotes and information about the area’s food history and timeless recipes like the curious legend behind breadsticks and the praline candy, cri-cri.

    This immersive food experience ends in a historic cafe with a tasting of milk ice cream and vermouth – a bitter liqueur flavored with an infusion of plants and citrus fruits – or bicerin, a traditional drink made of espresso, drinking chocolate, and milk.
