Angela was the most personal, genuine and delightful host for such an unforgettable experience! My husband and I dream to go to Italy and we were blown away by the tasting experience we had through Viva Italia to say the least. From the educational insights to the food itself but most importantly our time with Angela, we had created memories for a lifetime! Also, for those who are really thinking about the food...100% worth it!! Highly recommend this experience to anyone who is considering it!

Angela's Italian food tour was beyond what we could have expected. It was a multi sensorial experience that was both delicious and educational at the same time. She showed us the beauty of Italian culture through food and her amazing stories. She even taught us a few Italian phrases to really transport us to beautiful Italy. She welcomed us so warmly into her beautiful home and made us feel like family. It was the perfect way to spend our anniversary. If you want an experience that you can keep in your memories forever, take the time, come hungry, and enjoy Angela's Italian Food Tour.

Angela was very friendly and engaging. She had a lot of things to teach us about Italian food and culture that most people wouldn’t know otherwise. Would recommend her tours to others.

Angela's "tour of Italy" was a heartfelt sharing of her own Italian heritage. She is charming, gracious, and showered us with poignant information about the local area, her culture and the obvious pride she had in it, and her genuine caring for our comfort and the experience we hoped for. Bravo Angela! We will SURELY be back in the summer to experience your Niagara Falls open air tour!

This was our third tour with Angela during this trip and it was amazing! She is so knowledgeable and very friendly, I love how she adds personal stories and connects it to her tours. If you’re visiting Niagara you HAVE to meet Angela trust me. Book at least one tour with her and believe me you will book every single one she offers because you will love her. Can’t wait to come back with family and friends and introduce them to Angela!
