I decided last-minute to do this tour and was glad I did, as it was very informative and delicious! Valeria was an excellent guide, and the small size of the group allowed us to ask all the questions we wanted. The food samples are very generous, and I was stuffed at the end.
Our guide, Federica was lovely and very knowledgeable. We not only enjoyed the delicious food but we also learned so much about the history of Rome and the neighbors we explored.

Excellent tour and Guide, Antonia. Be aware that the market is closed for to afternoon tour. There is so much food to eat that you will not want to eat for hours before the tour begins, especially the evening tour.
Very tasty, interesting, on your own you wouldn't come across all those places!
To improve: not much really, only a tiny little bit more cultural Information.
My husband and I spent 9 days in Italy in 3 cities and took a four tour in each one. We loved every tour and they were each a little different. I enjoyed the foods of Rome and our guide who had a degree in archeology with a specialty in old coins. I loved hearing about American Italian food and when it didn't make sense. My favorite part was in the Jewish Ghetto and seeing the street plates. It touched my heart. These food tours are a fun value because you get to eat, drink, walk through the streets of Rome with a Roman and ...learn about the people, culture and history.
Fun tour, very worthwhile! Best to do at the beginning of your stay in Rome if you've never been there before. There's a lot of great food, and the history fits in so naturally and logically with the food. All three neighborhoods are fascinating and easy to walk around, and if you're staying awhile you'll probably return to some places on this tour like I did. Also, at the starting time I found out that four other people had signed up for it, and when none of them showed up I assumed that Valeria would need to cancel it - but she was happy to conduct the tour with just me. Thanks Valeria!
Federika was a great guide with an infectious love of Rome. We were a very small group 3 people and even though it was an afternoon tour, and the market was already closed, felt we got great explanations about the products used and typical Roman dishes. We were certainly not hungry by the end actually middle of the tour, having tasted gelato, pizza, cheeses, a salami, suppli, a fried artichoke and a pasta dish all in different locations. We went to the market the next morning and knew what to look for based on the evenings descriptions.
Lovely day spent talking about food and learning about the Roman perspective
Very fun tour. A highlight of Rome experience. Super friendly and fun tour guide
We had a wonderful guide Fredericka she was very knowledgeable and helpful. She made sure everyone who had different food requirements that they were all met. It was a very historic view of Rome with great food thrown in. We have done other food tours and this was a nice pace and the food outstanding. Make sure you don't eat before the tour though or you won't be able to fit everything in.
This tour was excellent. We really enjoyed the small group experience. The guide was very knowledgeable and the food was wonderful. We especially loved the fried artichokes in the Jewish Ghetto.

Amazing experience. Our guide was a true Roman with great insights and shared amazing foods with us throughout the tour. We were definitely stuffed by the end. Highly recommend!
Great tour! Great guide I think her name was Francesina! She was very spunky and knowledgeable. We enjoyed every bite.
As a fellow traveler: The afternoon tour does not go to the market, but is worth it nevertheless.
This food tour was exceptionally good. Georgia was amazing sharing her wealth of knowledge with us. We would highly recommend this tour as it was a highlight of our trip to Italy. Thank you to Georgia Louise and Tim
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this walking tour. Our tour guide, Valeria was an absolute pleasure. She was knowledgeable and thorough in covering all the areas we visited. There were only 5 of us in the group and we hit it off with the other 3 people. It was a beautiful day in Rome which added to the positive experience we had. This was our 2nd Walking Tour, having done the Testaccio one 2 years ago. I recommend this tour and Viator in general.

This was an EXCELLENT and very highly recommended. Our tour guide was fantastic and we loved the food as well as the history. Our guide was so knowledgeable and learning about the various areas like the Jewish Ghetto was fascinating. We chose this tour since we had been to Rome before and done the Vatican, Colosseum, etc. already. Definitely recommend!
Fabulous tour. Georgia the guide offered great knowledge of local food as well as interesting observations and historical tidbits along the route. The food stops were EXCELLENT. Doing this tour on one of your first days is a good idea so you can apply the knowledge to enhance your dining during your stay.
Excellent and fun tour. Knowledgeable guide. A lot of food to taste--go hungry.
My wife and I participated in this wonderful tour. The tour guide was excellent as she was knowledgeable and was enthusiastic and humorous. The various food we tasted was really good and we went back and bout biscotti at the wonderful 'forno' that we visited. Highly recommended.
What a wonderful experience! Our guide actually grew up in the area and was very knowledgeable. I wish I had taken this tour the very first time I visiting Rome. Highly recommend.
This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy, thanks to the guide Valerie. Her passion for her heritage, her city, and her food was evident throughout the tour. The food was amazing, and the stops were obviously thoughtfully chosen to showcase not only the wonderful diversity of food that is Rome, but also the unique characteristics of each neighbourhood that it visited. I highly recommend this tour.
Wonderful experience.....good food, good people, good times. Wandering the back roads and neighborhoods was the best!!

Daniella is a the best tour guide we've ever had and we've done quite a few tours through Viator. She was on time, friendly, knowledgeable, and very fun. She shared interesting information on everything from the produce in the market to the history of the Jewish Ghetto's architecture. We tried so much food and every bite was an experience to remember. The prosciutto that was seasoned similarly to salami was to die for. There is nothing in the world like fresh buffalo mozzarella. Mortadella makes for a surprisingly delicious pizza topping. Do yourself a favor and buy a Brutti ma Buoni or two. If you get a chance to enjoy the squash blossoms, rejoice! This tour was a highlight of our trip.
Loved this tour, especially the small group.
Would definitely recommend.
