Fabulous Food Tour!!
, Apr 2022
Valeria, our guide, was fabulous! Friendly, knowledgeable, humorous and she knows the neighborhood very well. The food was fabulous, and the places are those only locals would know. Caution: do not eat before this tour! The food is delicious and plentiful! Do not miss this tour, it is well worth the time and money. Thanks Valeria!! Maria and George

Delicious, Interesting tour!

Fantastic food and great information about the city. We enjoyed the discussion on the city, the people and the food.
Really good!

Really Nice guide who knows a lot about the food and the city :) don’t eat too much before the tour. It is a lot of food!
Great street food tour
, Sep 2020
We had booked the street food tour and our guide was Marina. Marina showed us spots, we wouldn‘t have found on our own and we learned a lot about genova. Of course we ate great food and it was really a pleasure to spend these hours with Marina. We can warmly recommend doing this tour.
Great experience
, Nov 2019
Fantastic tour. Meeting place was a bit confusing to find, but when we'd managed to locate our guide the tour got off to a great start with fresh seafood from a small kiosk right in the harbor. We sampled local delicacies in places we would never have found out ourselves, and our guide was great company too. This was one of the best tours ever, highly recommend!
Best way to see Genoa

Marina was the best host! each stop had delicious food and sufficient to really get a good bite. You shouldn't miss out.
Congratulations, you're going to have a food baby

I'm pretty sure it's impossible to leave this food tour hungry, so that alone is worth it. However, you will also experience some of the best food of your life and learn so much about Genoa in the process. Valeria was an incredible tour guide; such an interesting person with a real passion for her hometown. We would absolutely love to visit Genoa and when we do, we wouldn't hesitate to book another food tour through this company. If you're on the fence about booking, just do it! This was one of the best tours we ever did!
Top tour from our trip, in my opinion
, Jul 2019
The group contacted us the day before with excellent instructions how to find our guide after coming off the ship. The guide was on time, walked at a casual pace. His tour commentary was casual - not too caught up in dates and persons, trying to cram as much history as possible into the time. Spoke more on the culture, what the locals enjoyed, some of the history, and the FOOOOD. We picked the pizza, focaccia lunch tour since our daughter would best like that one. My tip - skip eating breakfast, or eat only a light breakfast. We ate ourselves silly. Small walk - light snack - small walk - sit down restaurant with gourmet pizza, 3 kinds. Small walk - streetside deli for another trial of local fare. Small walk - another restaurant with another type of amazing pizza. Small walk - GELATO! The guide was very aware of the insane-hot temperatures. Kept the water coming to the table as well as soda if we wanted one, we don't drink alcohol, but wine was available. The buildings offered "European AC" which means they were cooler than outside, but not the sub-Arctic temps we US citizens usually see. It was a very pleasant way to while away 3.5 hours and we got to see some beautiful buildings in between eating ourselves silly.

Food + New Friends = Fun Times!

Somehow, we'd totally thought we booked some kind of cooking class through Do Eat Better, so when we arrived in Genoa and realized we'd be eating our way through the city while we walked, we were initially skeptical. But we quickly learned that this was a really unique, delicious way to see the sights from a local's perspective. Our guide was really, really incredible. Not only did she share with us facts about the landmarks and local traditions, but she pointed out personal stories (like the building her family used to manage a restaurant in, for example, or where she attended school on the top floor of a beautiful building). In the best way possible, we felt like we had met a friend who was guiding us through their hometown. Our tour was just us (my husband and me) and a family of four from our cruise ship. It was perfect. Pasta. Focaccia. Wine. Gelato. Show up HUNGRY.

An amazing tour with just the best tour guide Marina. We were promised food and they outdid themselves. Everything we had was excellent. Marina made sure we received anything we wanted. She managed our group of 9 wonderfully. And the food vendors were excellent. Would not hesitate to recommend this tour and give it a 10/10! Fantastic value for the amount paid.
Marina was THE BEST
, Dec 2018
Marina did our food tour in Genoa and was simply the best!! She walked us around to some of the places offering all the local specialties! We tasted Everything! She explained the history and significance of these incredible dishes and mixed in local history and interesting facts about the town as we walked. Totally enjoyed the experience w Marina and left totally full and with great understanding of the local food. She even stopped off at a great market so we could buy things to take home with us!! 6 stars if I could!!

We signed up last minute for this tour and are really glad we did. AnnaLisa was a great guide, easy to talk to and clearly knows and loves Genoa. We tasted some amazing local food and got to see the highlights of the city. You won't walk away hungry!
Delicious Way to try regional food in Genoa!!
, Sep 2018
Our tour on Sun, 9/2, 2018 was a fabulous and so delicious way of trying the different types of food in Genoa! Marina was our guide and we stopped at about 5 different restaurants/ street stands that allowed us to try focaccia, prepared many different ways, anchovies, shrimp & calamari !! It was incredibly delicious! We had wine, and if you didn't feel like wine, you could have a soft drink or water. Marina was very sweet and knowledgeable about the area of Genoa that she spoke about. She was also well versed in all the types of regional foods of Genoa and a very social person to talk to! It was a wonderful day, spending about 3 1/2 hours eating delicious Italian food! Thank you Marina!
Great tour

We had a very good food tour. We visited several small places with very good local food. I recommend all visitors with interest in food to participate in this tour.
Grandissimo evento
, May 2022
Aufgrund der geringen Nachfrage hatten wir das Glück, eine private Tour mit Marina zu machen. Eine sehr herzliche Frau, mit viel Wissen über Genua und seine Küche ausgestattet. Die Speisen waren alle sehr lecker und man war dem platzen nah. Aufpassen bei der Tüte mit der typischen Hafenarbeiterkost. Die hat es in sich. Frittierte Meeresfrüchte oder auch vegetarisch. Sehr lecker, aber da war der Bauch schon fast voll. Da hilft übrigens der heimische Kräuterlikör. Alles in allem sehr zu empfehlen. Danke Marina. Grandissimo evento, gentilissima donna, buonissima cucina. Grazie per la benissima sera. Alla prossima.

Buenísimo tour. Para comer mucho

Excelente y bien organizado tour, conocimos la ciudad y la comida al mismo tiempo. Arrancamos desde el puerto y desde ahí fuimos avanzando por la ciudad, conociendo su comida y sus costumbres culinarias. Super recomendable.
