Fantastic tour! Due to train strikes we didn’t make it to Naples on time. Our emails were not received but Martina reached out to us on WhatsApp just before we were due to start the tour and we managed to convey that we wouldn't make it. She kindly agreed to rebook us for the next day! Thank you Martina! Our guide Mario was very knowledgeable and we felt we learnt a lot about the food we were trying. Also plenty of extra about Naples history as a whole. Definitely worth every penny!

AMAZING street food tour 😍 If you're a foodie, this is definitely your jam! The food of course is amazing and you'll be full by the end, won't need to go out for another meal afterwards. Our tour guide Mario was incredible. Very personable and informative. Made us laugh and enjoy our time. Money well spent!
