“rome, food, fun”
Reviewed 10 January 2013

lovely, laid back walking tour with a ton of food, dispersed with info on everything food (and that is a lot in ITALY!). there was only one other couple with us which was a crass difference to another tour we ran into (more than 10 people). Hande made us try foods we had already know - but in much better versions; or things we had never had before (horse salami, anyone?). We could taste the difference of quality and she gave us also background info and commentary on everything food related. If you wish you had a friend in Rome to take you through the markets and food shops, this is the tour to take.

“Great food tour!”
Reviewed 29 November 2012

Really enjoyed this food tour! Irene is a great guide to Romes food related history - and to the food itself! Found it interesting and tasty. And not exhausting at all. Was worried we would be stuffed before the end, but the portions were kept small & it was very doable. Also I think Irene took account of the fact that we had done a wine tasting the night before that included a lot of cheeses and cold meats So I think she changed the tour to accommodate for this (there was only us 2 on the tour).The tour gave us more of an idea of the lay out of central Rome. And a place to go back for a "roast pork sambo", just out of this world! Only complaint was no "gelato". Did she forget? We did, only thought of it after! Went for one after. But would have liked to have known good place to go, and which one to try...

“the best”
Reviewed 26 November 2012

Enjoyed the tour with Irene during our october visit. She is another of the valuable members of vino roma and has the same high standards - for food. We had a delightful 3 hours, with just one other couple, in her company, through the historic center of Rome. Got to understand what we are eating, what is on offer, why and how. Recommendable, also for getting restaurant recommendations for the rest of your stay.

“Entertaining and delicious”
Reviewed 22 November 2012

We have done afood tour in almost every city we have visited, this ranks certainly at the very top. We got an overview of the neighborhood (testaccio) we stayed in, the history of the area was explained, we found great places to do our food shopping and got great food to taste. The interaction the guide had with all the vendors was great, it made us feel like we have been living here longer (instead of just 10 days!)
