A great tour and one of the highlights of several weeks in Italy. Our guide was very good. A big breakfast before the tour is not necessary as we were given the chance to sample about a dozen local dishes during the tour, plus lunch and a couple of glasses of wine - and they were all wonderful. We are quite fit in our mid-60's and had no trouble with walking - but one person in a wheel chair found the lack of ramps at intersections to be very difficult.

This was an outstanding tour. The nine food tastings were fantastic, everything from prosciutto to tiramisu. Our guide Luna was excellent. Luna gave detailed explanations for every dish including preparation and history. Luna also took us on a surprise tour of a cemetery that contained Keats and Shelley's grave sites. Luna was the best! I can't recommend this tour enough. It is simply a must if you are in Rome.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Sarah - she was a great ambassador for local produce and we loved being in a different area of the city which had a real foodie focus. The food was (of course) amazing and the entire tour was fabulous. I'd recommend this to anyone visiting Rome and would definitely do it again.

5 stars is not enough for this tour. Going to an area where tourists would not find on their own made this the most memorable part of our trip. Our guide Sarah was AWESOME! The experience of trying all new things as well as the stops and history along the tour were just amazing. So many benefits to this tour: what to look for in good cheeses, balsamic, how to spot fake gelato, and what makes carbonara real or fake! The food and the people on this tour make it so awesome. Recommend doing this and the night one(We did not get the chance to do the night) but we are sure its just as amazing!

We have raved about this tour, absolutely fantastic, we love italian food and we had the chance to try a great selection, we are telling all our friends and groups in our community who organise small overseas trips.
We would certainly do it again. Our guide for the day was marvellous, unfortunately I cannot recall her name all I know is she is an American with superbI Italian she made it so very interesting and had a great relationship with the shops/stall holder.
Thank you we would do,it again

This tour was one of the best we've ever taken! It was a nice small group led by a wonderful guide who made it memorable. We stopped at a variety of different markets and shops and sampled some of the fabulous food in the neighborhood. After a lifetime of despising tomatoes, I tasted some on this tour that were sweet and absolutely delicious. The cannoli was like no other I've ever had-awesome good! Do this tour! Trust me!

This was our first Food tour ever and now we've decided we want one wherever we go! just hope we will be as blessed with a guide as we were on this one.
The group was small and very diverse, however we were the only europeans there (there were also people from Australia, USA and Brazil). Our guide - Sara was very knowlegeable, told us a lot of interesting facts and stories about food and local surroundings. She seems to know well and love italian food, has great sense of humour, so it was a real pleasure to follow her on this food adventure.
We had all the typical italian food you may think of and luckily the tasting places were spread around the Testaccio neighbourhood, so minor walking in between was appreciated. The tour itself took about 4 hours and there were absolutely no rush.
We were also taught how to differ a real gelato from all the fakes out there in tourist spots and how to judge if its an authentic italian cafe by the price of espresso ;-) As well as given recommendations on restaurants of Rome in a form of brochure.
If you are a foodie and have a spare day in Rome this tour is a must!

one of the best tours I've ever taken. Domenico is an excellent and energetic host, herding our motley group carefully, like a father hen, to make sure everyone kept up and on one missed out. He took us to some excellent places all of which had a fascinating history and all of which served excellent samples of Roman cuisine. A highlight, among many, was lunch in the mountain of amphorae in Testaccio. If you can only do one tour in Rome, do this one, and ask for Domenico as your guide.
