We booked pretty late and spontaneous which is why we had a pretty private tour with Pier.

He was incredible as a guide and for anyone who is interested to get to know the local cuisine, regional differences for cuisine in Italy or simply some
funny discussions about the latest food trends - he is the guy.

The food and wine we received was delicious and after spending a couple of days in Como exploring a lot of restaurants, bars and cafés- we are convinced that the selected places represent some of the best and most traditional places in Como.

Last but not least having an owner of a shop as the guide gave us the feeling that we became local for a short while as well - receiving the warmth and hospitality of the owners of the restaurant, the staff and just local neighbors greeting us friendly.

We really enjoyed the tour and can highly recommend it for anyone interested to get to know both the cuisine as well as the city history.

Wonderful little walking tour of Como it’s such a cute town. We really enjoyed ourselves and would recommend it (even my kids 14 & 17 enjoyed it). Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable. The food and drink (I ordered the extra drink card) was great we were totally full at the end. If there was anything I’d change it would be the pizza - I’d have much preferred a thin crust margarita I didn’t love the Sicilian.

Great Como food tour. The food was wine and charcuterie starter, followed by square pizza, then main course, then dessert, and finally coffee. Each course at a different location. You get to see some of the Como city center, but don’t expect to go anywhere beyond minimal walking distance. I would say 80% food/20% sightseeing. Piergiorgio was our guide who was very knowledgeable and passionate about food. He also owns a spice shop and has experienced food throughout the world. The amount of food was not overwhelming, and I was happy that the dessert course was takeaway rather than sit down. If you get Pier, you’re in good hands. He was even helpful after tour with advice on Como such as the funicular and the best viewpoints. :)

This was a private tour with Piergiorgio and he did great as a guide. He's very knowledgeable about the area. On the tour, you start with wine and some charcuterie, then move to pizza, main local dishes, dessert and coffee. The experience was good, but light on wine. I would definitely include wine with the main course, especially a locally-grown selection that paired with the local food. The desserts were outstanding.

Pros: Great guide, good selection of wine to start with, lots of food, great setting that keeps you moving between courses

Cons: It's one glass of wine in a country known for being the world's largest exporter of wine. The pizza size is perfect, but it's premade, not fresh. Took away from the experience a bit.

Had such a good time on this tour with Fabia. She was very engaging and was very knowledgeable about Como and its history. Absolutely loved the first stop for wine and charcuterie. The main meal at the restaurant was delicious and definitely something we would never have tried. Was a thoroughly enjoyable morning spent in como.

Really enjoyed this tour yesterday morning. A great group of people and a wonderful host Pierre Giorgio. We sampled a few local specialties and had a lovely leisurely tour of the area ending in our host’s spice and coffee shop. We would not have tasted any of the things we did had we not gone on the tour and I would highly recommend this if you are in the area with a few hours to spare.
Many thanks.

We had Pier to ourselves, as it was just us. We really enjoyed the tour and he was very knowledgeable on Como and was easy going and a good guide.
We got amazing recommendations for places to eat, that helped us make the most of our stay in Como. The places he recommended weren’t the obvious tourist restaurants and we found the food was amazing.

It was a great way to see more of Como but the food we tried was a little disappointing and didn't feel like good value for money.

We had a fantastic time on this tour. Our guide Pierre was top notch. He was friendly and knowledgeable and would definitely recommend requesting him if you do this tour.
