This tour took us to the very best places for authentic espresso, gelato, and tiramisu. We learned what real gelato is and tastes like with very generous portions. We also got introduced to The Place to go to for espresso, and I learned that granita di caffe con panna is my new favorite food in the whole world. You don't really know this food until you've had it in Rome under the guidance of an expert. The experience from top to bottom was so worth it.
We highly recommend this tour in Rome. Antonia was amazing and immediately made us feel comfortable and welcome in her city. We loved weaving our way through some parts of Rome we would not have seen on our own and learned so much about the coffee culture in Italy. We were both pleasantly stuffed at the end! Thank you for such a great experience!
Recently enjoyed this tour with my parents on 3/6/2016. My parents and I had a very short time in Rome 3 days so we were incredibly grateful to find a tour on a Sunday.
Federica was waiting at the square, very easy to see with her sign and red umbrella. We've experienced tours with radios and big buses, but it is always the smaller tours like this that are the most enjoyable. What was even better is that its was affordable too! Federica was amazing, full of knowlege, and truly passionate about the food we were eating. Other food tours may only let you taste or look at the food, but with Gourmetaly you learn and get a real scoop at the gelaterias, best cups of espresso, and a wonderful portion for tiramisu.
The tour was perfectly paced, not rushed, and even if you have a hard time walking as my dad does with bad knees its a pleasant stroll so you can enjoy the food. Ends near the Spanish Steps and Federica was helpful with showing us how to get back to our hotel, whether is be taxi or metro. I would book again with Gourmetaly.
Loved this tour. Great guide, really enjoyed the various places we visited and the tastings the granita!, the pine gelato...!!. A nice easy pace and had a good walk around the city centre. Recommended.
Great tour we thoroughly enjoyed our three hour walk and information obtained about Expresso, Gelato and Tiramisu. Our guide was very informative about historical sites we passed.
This was our favorite tour on our honeymoon!!! I cannot say enough good things about our espresso/gelato tour. Antonia ? our guide was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. We were lucky, in that, even though its a small group tour--we were the only ones who booked that day, which basically turned it into a private tour!! We visited Casa D'oro, and Sant Eustacchio. Of the two famous competing espresso joints, Eustacchio was by far our favorite. The gelateria across the street was amazing too! At this point in our tour, it started to DOWN POUR. So here we were three young adults running through the flooded streets of Rome. We had such a great time. When we left our second gelateria the ran had slowed down enough for us to make it to the tiramisu shop. A very yummy tour and a great way too see Rome like a local. Thank you so much for the amazing memories we will never forget!!

Daniella is a foodie's dream tour guide! She's not only knowledgeable about the foods you sample and their histories, she is also very knowledgeable about the city and its history. She's fun, sweet and very interesting. She loves food and is happy to discuss it with you throughout the tour and she'll even send you a list of her favorite restaurants and shops in Rome as well as personal recipes. Every sample that we tried was delicious and we were grateful that it was a walking tour as we were stuffed by the end. We cannot express how much we loved Daniella and this tour. It was certainly a highlight of our trip.
Fab little tour - brilliantly knowledgeable and friendly guide.
You must try the Granita and the Buffalo Gelato with tomatoes if available, really interesting.
We did this on the afternoon we arrived which was fantastic timing to learn about the best coffee and the best ice cream. We happened to be the only ones on the tour so this was great! our lovely tour guild was a young lady who was so nice and we had a great time.
Very good way to understand and appreciate what goes into making the type of espresso and gelato that Roman connoisseurs approve of. Also a nice way to walk through central Rome with a knowledgable local guide.
Oh my goodness -- my wife thought we died and went to Heaven! Valeria Sp? has a PhD in Italian history, and her knowledge of the coffee, foods and customs made for a delightfully enjoyable evening!
We had great fun on this tour. We did admit that we were in the coffee business and knew a lot about espresso, however it was great to see the small local roasters. The gelato and tiramisu stops were great as was the young lady who was our guide.
Valeria was our tour guide for this tasty tour! She took us to places that the local people flock to for gelato, espresso and tiramisu. We were given generous samples by the shop owners while Valeria explained the process used in making their products. This is a fun and tasty tour that's sure to please your taste buds! Be sure to include this tour on your next trip to Rome! Thank you Viator! Donna Irene
This tour was a lot of fun and very delicious. There were only 4 of us on the tour so we had an even more personalised experience. Our guide was Anna. She was lovely and very personable. There's a LOT of walking involved so make sure you wear comfortable shoes.
I'm a foodie + have a sweet tooth so this was a great tour. The timing is funny (as it's around dinner time that is if you're not European) but if you're willing to have dessert for dinner it's amazing. The plus side of the timing is that the coffee places are way less crowded. Our guide was great and was great, informative, and enthusiastic. You won't be disappointed!
This was great! They take you to all these great little places to try samples. You won't need dinner afterwards and you'll be on a sugar high! We first of all went to a place and tried granita.. Just beautiful, then espresso... We then went to 2 gelato shops and it was amazing! They give you big samples so you're so full, and then you try the most amazing tiramisu I've ever tasted!!! :) If you are a foody definitely do this tour :) You learn a lot about the coffee making, gelato making and tiramisu making processes too. Very interesting.
This was a fun, informative, experience. We loved the tastings of coffee, gelato and tiramisu yum and would definitely suggest others seriously consider this tour. Many thanks Andrew and Helen Taylor
What a great few hours spend in Rome. Local guide very helpful and knowledgable. More that we were expecting with lots of history thrown in as we were walking. Receommend this trip.
A lovely tour of the best gelaterias in central rome area. Also a useful introduction for a non Italian into the mysteries of buying coffee in rome! The coffee granita from the cafe by the pantheon was amazing, I went back twice before leaving rome. Tour guide was so friendly and knowledgeable.
Absolutely loved this tour. The best guide and local information. The best tiramisu and gelato I have ever eaten. The frozen granita was to die for. So pleased I did this tour.

Our tour guide, Daniela met us on time and surprised us when she said that the 4 of us were the "small group" for the tour. We set off on the route she had planned for us with the first stop at the espresso bar serving the most amazing treat of crema, espresso and shaved ice...we all wanted to stay for more! There were more samples and the historical info to come. The artisanal gelato locations really educated us on the fine craft of producing "true gelato" that had tastes never to be forgotten. The highlight of tiramisu concluded the trip with a twist of strawberry that made the ending most memorable for all of us.
Daniella was an absolute delight, and this tour was not only fun, but educational. 2.5 hours of walking, but at an easy pace, and the small group makes it very personal. Daniella is not only knowledgeable, but her pride in Rome is readily apparent; we appreciated all of her insider knowledge and put it to good use during the remainder of our week in Rome.
Valeria was fantastic. She was extremely knowledgeable and just so pleasant to be around. The explanations at each destination was thorough and the treats were delectable. Great conversation great desserts. A must!
