    Wonderful experience
    My friends and I were in Rome for the first time, so we decided to do a few tours just to orient ourselves. Not expecting much (we’re not generally tour people), we were delighted with the no-pressure, leisurely pace of the food and wine tour of the Jewish Ghetto. It was small; it was friendly, and it was a great start to our visit. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and accommodating, and stayed with the group well after the scheduled end time. Recommended!

    Food tour with Greta
    This tour was a great way to see the sites and experience the local food on our first night in Rome. Greta was very knowledgeable, easy to talk to and ask questions. We had lots of fun and a smaller group which made it a bit easier to navigate the streets.

    Unforgettable food tour in Rome!
    This was easily one of our favorite tours- ever! Roberto was fun, very informative and accommodating. The food was fantastic- we went back to a couple of the restaurants on our own as they were THAT GOOD! Unfortunately there was so much food on the tour that some members of our group didn’t have enough room for the gelato at then end :). We were also impressed that the kids remembered a good amount of the Roman history we learned- Roberto was very engaging. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone who is a fan of food and history!

    2nd time !
    My wife and I took this tour a couple of years ago and enjoyed so much that when we decided to return to Rome again this year it was on the top of out to to list ! Again the tour exceeded our expectations with a couple of new spots and a few favorites the food was great from the fried Artichoke, Pizza, and pasta but the topper of course had to be the Tiramisu which could only be described as the best. the tour itself takes throughout the old Jewish Ghetto district our guide provide many interesting facts about the area answering all of our questions along the way. the tour is a great way to see a part Rome often missed but make sure you go hungry!

    A truly great experience!
    My adult son and I loved this tour. The Jewish Ghetto held great interest for us and we were not disappointed. Roberto was very knowledgeable about the area and the history. The food was phenomenal! We made several stops along the way on this foodie tour. Each one was special with wonderful wines, meats, cheeses, pastas and desserts! This was definitely one of the highlights of our stop in Rome. We were a small group of strangers and were like family by the end of the evening. We were tasting each others desserts with the same spoons!! This was something very special....a real 5 star experience. Don't miss it. Thank you Roberto!!!!

    One of the highlights of our recent trip to Rome. The gluten free pizza was as good as any pizza I have ever had. Also, the ability to see some impressive sites while on the way from stop to stop was impressive. Giulia knows her stuff and her food. She is an outstanding guide, and I would recommend her to anyone.

    Great private review with charming and informative guide.
    I'm awful w/ names, have forgotten our guide. My wife and I did a private tour... Owing to traffic we were late, she was very gracious about that. Her knowledge of the local area is ridiculous... Learned of the Italian inquisition which I was ignorant of. The market tour with fresh meat, fresh pesto was excellent. Our pasta restaurant was great, her education on where Caesar was actually murdered(fake news!) was excellent. Do it, simply put.

    The best way to start your Gluten Free visit to Rome
    As a coeliac I had some concern about our visit to Rome. My wife found this tour and we thought I would help us identify places we could eat for the rest of our stay. We went on our day of arrival and met our guide Gaia. There was only the two of us on the tour and we spent a fantastic 4 hours wandering around delightful restaurants, cafes and gelateria. Gaia was so helpful and friendly with nothing being a problem to her. It as like being with a friend. The quantities of food and quality were superb. The pizza is the best I have ever had accompanied by gluten free beer ( went back twice). You can be sure that you will not go hungry on this tour. A many course meal spread around some fascinating roman historical areas. Gaia also gave insights to many hidden gems of Rome, the basement of the restaurant where you have pasta is very revealing. In conclusion you would be mad to miss this tour especially if you are a coeliac. It is brilliant!

    Taste of Rome
    Wonderful tour with Giorgia! Many different things to taste and try. I especially liked starting out with the sausages and wine. What a way to kick off a tour at 10 am! No arguments here. Besides sampling delicious things to eat, Giorgia also shared her knowledge of Rome and it's history . She was also open about what it's like to live in Rome today. We really enjoyed her company as well as the food we tasted.

    Phenomenal Tour
    Food tours are our favorites. This was one of the best ever. Our guide Giorgia was passionate, knowledgeable and has an effervescent personality. And she took an interest in us as people and not just tourists she was herding from site to site. We learned a lot and enjoyed many different types of local oils, wine, beer, expresso and food dishes. Skip breakfast and come hungry.
