Experience Sorrento like a local

What's included?

First and foremost, we just love to linger at the table during this immensely popular 3-hr lunch experience.
Menus includes antipasto, primo, secondo and dolce–all washed down with wine, Italian beers and limoncello.
Visit authentic eateries much loved by locals and enjoy multiple tastings of seasonal Sorrentine/Neapolitan dishes.
Enjoy the warm, genuine hospitality of our Italian hosts who delight in serving our guests the kinds of food they would eat at home.
Learn about local life and soak in the culture while sampling excellent wines.
What sets us apart is great company around the table, amazing food, wine that flows, and the feeling of a truly personal experience.
Finally, all venues on this tour offer extremely generous portions, so we suggest not to plan anything more energetic than a siesta after!

What to expect?

This popular progressive lunch tasting shows you the truly authentic side of our town, it’s down to earth and as realistic as everyday life gets in Sorrento.

Accompanied by your Gourmet Girls host, you’ll walk within a residential area to discover the traditions and history behind Sorrentine culture and cuisine via authentic eateries and locally loved trattorias.

Very much a part of the community, there is little Gourmet Girls don’t know and love about the culinary scene in Sorrento. We enjoy genuine relationships with our restaurateurs and it’s that knowledge and friendship we want to share.

Eat like a local: Sample dishes typically served up at an Italian kitchen table. Cooked with fresh, seasonal ingredients, tastings are accompanied by acclaimed wines from the Campania Region to enhance the flavours. Be sure to bring a healthy appetite as there’s a generous amount of scrumptious food to try on this tour.

We embrace the changing of the seasons and ensure our guests are immersed within a truly authentic experience, not only with regard to seasonal dishes, but all that embodies the local culture of everyday life in Sorrento. This tour seamlessly adapts to accompany the seasons throughout the year.

Meet the locals and experience southern Italian hospitality first hand as we introduce you to the owners of the four venues we visit on this tour. Real people with interesting and entertaining personalities who are delighted to welcome you.

Gourmet Girls are fun, easy going and extremely knowledgeable about the food as well the general area surrounding Sorrento. Well-travelled and somewhat amusing–or so we like to think–you are sure to find common ground with us so that you will leave feeling like you made some new friends.

We are different. When it comes to food tours, Gourmet Girls offer an entirely unique experience and are unlike most others you might have tried anywhere around the world. They are meticulously designed to bring you a glimpse of Italian life as it revolves around food and wine. It’s just that very personal touch that make ours stand out over other tours.

Important Notes;

  1. We recommend that you book our food experiences early in your stay as we visit many places that we feel entirely sure you would want to return to. Jot down your favourite foods and wines en-route so you know what to order next time.
  2. While we do reach our venues on foot this is not a walking tour. We focus on food tastings and wine pairings and especially on this experience our venues are very close together in a small residential area.
  3. If your date appears sold out or unavailable always drop us a line and we will see what we can do.
