We'd taken food walking tours before, but didn't expect to eat this much! It was fantastic! We stopped in 5 different places, sampling delicious local food, ending with gelato. We walked from Campo de' Fiori and ended in Trastevere. We never would have gotten to the beautiful neighborhood of Trastevere were it not for this tour. Well worth the price.

We had a such a great time on our Food Walking Tour! Lisa was our guide, and she was so fun and personable. She gave us great background on the neighborhoods we visited, and about the different foods we tried.All of the food was delicious, and we had a chance to explore new areas of Rome we hadn't been to, yet. We had a great group, and we enjoyed a delicious dinner.

Claudio (our guide) was great- explained everything and was fun to be around. The food was great everywhere. Walking through the Jewish Ghetto in Rome was a highlight.
• Submitted 06 Nov 2019
Highly recommend this tour, our guide Claudio was great. He made the tour fun, the food, the places we visited, it was all worth while. He made us feel at home, we did not feel like tourist, we felt like a family just strolling through some of my favorite neighborhoods in Rome.

This small group food tasting tour started in the market, went to the Jewish quarter and ended across the tiber. Each neighborhood we visited was put into context by our excellent guide and included stops for food tasting. The food was excellent. This was the perfect tour for a rainy night in Rome.

Great tour. Tasted a number of special Roman dishes. Guides were very friendly and informative. We were lucky to have been the only two tourists for the tour
• Submitted 04 Nov 2019
Our guide Lisa was hospitable and informative. This tour is like a progressive dinner where you go around to different restaurants/food shops in the Trastevere area. Maybe I didn't read the description in full but two of the stops included some wine as well, so that was a nice bonus. I only wish we did this earlier on during our stay in Rome because we wanted to go back to two of the stops on the tour for a meal on our own.

Our guides were very personable and that encouraged us all to interact. We went to many different and eclectic tasting and historic venues in Rome - places we would not usually visit. Food tasted ranged from buffalo mozzarella to thin crust pizza to Jewish appetizers to gelato. All good. A good way to spend time in Rome.

My husband and I were so grateful for this wonderful walking tour. What an experience to walk around in three Roman neighborhoods and taste local Roman foods while learning about the history and the tradition of each place. We especially loved the small group. Lisa, our tour guide is very informative and had interesting stories each step of the way.

This tour was fabulous definitely one not to be missed especially if you are lucky enough to have Claudio as your tour guide, his knowledge was amazing. Each place we went the food was fabulous and the servings very generous. We would never have found these places on our own
• Submitted 18 Oct 2019
We have taken about a half dozen food tours while traveling over the years and found this one to be among the best. Leader was friendly, knowledgeable and made sure everyone in our group was accounted for as we made our way through crowded streets. Visits to each restaurant was fun and although some of the things we tried were better than others, all were at least good, if not great. Recommend this tour highly.
