Thought my review was posted 2 weeks ago, but I guess I didn’t do it right! I must have been still on my Sorrento and Amalfi Coast high! We booked this tour with friends and it did not disappoint! We first met Vanessa and Lee in town, and right away I knew this was going to be an exceptional tour! Vanessa is quick to respond with any questions, and cancellations. We actually cancelled Italy but rebooked a week later and the first thing I did was email Vanessa if we could rebook. She made it work for us! After we met in town we went for some sandwiches and Prosecco to a cute restaurant with amazing sandwiches. We had a nice chat and plenty of laughs. What a great job they have I thought. Moving on to another of the girls favorite was a yummy bakery. The owners were just recently married and so welcoming. We all felt like family already. Then lunch. Mamma Mia! The food! It was enough for 12 people. There were 6 of us. Cheese and meat platter from local farms. Out of this world. Homemade pasta, vegetables, oh and wine. And more wine. Needless to say we were officially in a food coma. They say there is more to come….”We still have 2 more stops”. At this point, I looked at my husband and asked if we could move to Sorrento. Next place we tried the most amazing rice balls( sorry can’t remember formal name). The best I have ever had! Then a surprise after the rice balls. Chocolate pizza. Amazing!!! Never heard of such a thing. We have made it since. Our grandkids are hooked! Last stop the best expresso I’ve ever had and more wine. This tour just keeps on going and going. Vanessa and Lee have poured their heart and soul into their tours. It shows! I’m sorry we weren’t there for their new dinner tour! Have to book that for 2022. This will not disappoint. You become family instantly. Don’t wait to book this as it does fill fast. Best to Vanessa and Lee. Truly amazing women! Ciao Bob and Kathy

Back around Christmas 2020, I won a food tour with the Gourmet Girls through the Untold Italy podcast. This giveaway was during lockdown, so we'd all have something to look forward to when travel would be possible after the pandemic. The dream did not disappoint and I was SO ecstatic when I found out that I had won! Vanessa was wonderful about keeping in email contact with me over the months to figure out if a tour would be possible/allowed when we were in Sorrento. I was so happy that everything worked out for my husband and me to experience the Bella Sorrento Evening Food Tour. It was so enjoyable to have an evening with Vanessa and Lee, especially since they have just been able to begin hosting tours again. Both ladies are ex-pats, married with children to Italian men. So, because they call Sorrento home, It wasn’t just a food tour, they helped us experience what life is like for the people of Sorrento. They took their time at each restaurant. We got to meet the owners of each establishment and we learned history we never would have learned otherwise. We drank amazing wine, we ate deliciously authentic food, and we felt as if we were spending an evening with good friends. It was one of those unexpectedly fantastic nights we feel so lucky to have experienced. If you make it to Sorrento, you simply must put this food tour on your list!

We had a wonderful afternoon with Vanessa and Lee. They are warm and welcoming and we feel like we’ve made new friends. The food was so delicious we went back to a couple of places on the tour before we left Sorrento. Our only regret was that we didn’t do the tour on our first day so we could get the scoop on the best restaurants earlier! We noticed people at adjacent tables definitely had food envy!! Thanks to the Gourmet Girls for an amazing afternoon of food, fun and lots of laughs!

Wow!!!!! You must take this food tour if you are in Sorrento!! I’ve been on a lot of food tours over the years and this was one of my favorites. We started with a Prosecco and these focaccia sandwiches ( my mouth is watering right now)… so delicious!! Went onto stroll a few areas of Sorrento which I would of never found by myself. Tasted some lemonchello right in the lemon tree area ( so beautiful)!! Had at least 6 different kinds of cheeses and meats. I got to try pumpkin which I have never had. Delicious!! I had the best gnocchi I have ever tasted.. ( along with wine) in fact I will definitely go back and find the restaurant!! There was more meats, cheeses, vegetables, and eggplant Parmesan. But we were not finished… went on to some arancini with a beverage of choice ( nice with Italian beer). Then a large pizza pie like scrumptious dessert with chocolate inside. Off we went for a huge cappuccino along with some lemonchello and a lemon filled yummy mini croissant. These gals really know how to do a good tour. The food and drinks are amazing and plentiful!! But the company and genuine passion and friendliness is outstanding. I read about these gals on a blog, and hoped I would get a chance to do their food tour one day!! I am so grateful for an outstanding day!! I will do it again when back in Sorrento!! F**** OUTSTANDING!!!THANK YOU!!!!!

Vanessa and Lee explained that they wanted the tour to feel like we were joining their Italian families to spend time around the table eating, drinking and enjoying each other’s company and they certainly nailed it! Our group of 4 loved the fabulous food ( and there was so much we were stuffed) but really enjoyed their company even more. It was an outstanding afternoon and highly recommend!
