Georgia was our guide for a group of 7 and she was very knowledgeable about the area we toured and the various shops and eateries we visited. Her enthusiasm helped keep the chill out of a cold evening in Rome as did the friendliness and wit of our fellow travellers. The tour is ideal for finding out more about Roman pizza, sandwiches and ice cream. There was just the right balance between walking and stopping to sample a fair amount of food. The visit to the Jewish quarter was also insightful. The small number in our tour helped us get to know each other and none of us were shy at asking questions. Georgia got the balance right between being group leader and knowing when to let us chat among ourselves. She made it look easy and was a very accomplished host. This is a great tour if you want to see more of Rome than the main tourist sights. Highly recommended.
This was wonderful tour. Francesca was the guide and she was extremely personable, informative and fun. As it turned out I was the only tourist and we spent the time walking and talking as friends would do. She explained everything in detail and answered all my questions, and of course, the food was beyond delicious. Each stop was better than the next. if you like to walk and see the sights as well as eat excellent food I would highly recommend this tour.

We enjoyed this walking tour very much. So much food to sample and it was all delicious. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed learning so much about the produce at the market. Well worth the time and price.

Great tour. Early AM meeting with our guild who explained the foods and the area. Great tasting in the Jewish Ghetto and Trastevere area.
It was such such a great tour! All the food was delicious - we watched how to make a roman pizza, how to order it like a roman and then tasted it the can-not-stop-eating buffalo mozarella in a 100-yrs history shop surprisingly good kosher food all kinds of weird biscotti with weird names and after all, pasta and gelato. the tour guide gave very informative introductions of the tour, not only about the food itself, but also comparison with similar items in other regions, fun facts, neighborhood history and funny stories. Sorry I have difficulty in names but I remember the guide has a doctor degree in ancient coins, that probably made the trip with so much historical information. Anyway, love it and totally recommend to anyone who would like to travel to Rome.
Valeria was great, her exuberance and insights into roman cuisine was wonderful to hear and it was a real pleasure to have her as our tour guide. Hearing her knowledge into traditional roman dishes, ingredients and the growth of both roman and Italian cuisine was much more interesting than I had anticipated. The amount of food we received was ideal, we had the correct amount which left us able to continue tasting more and not leaving our stomachs overwhelmed. We later visited a couple of locations from the tour and we were not disappointed. Definitely would recommend travellers to take this tour. Thanks Valeria for a wonderful experience!
Giorgia was an amazing tour guide and this was probably our favourite tour in Rome. Recommend doing this tour at the start of your trip!
I had initially booked it with my boyfriend in mind, so I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Make sure you don't eat beforehand as there is so much to try. Well worth the money.
An excellent way to enjoy the hidden treasures of Rome :
This trip was out of this world. I loved it all. Great experiences. Will always do a food tour in any major city I can from this day on.
Valeria was charming and the best tour guide ever. Her local gourmet and archaeological knowledge and relationships with the various bakers, delicatessens, stall holders, ice cream parlour and restauranteurs made this tour extra special with no question of her or the proprietors too much trouble! We tasted so many delicious examples of authentic Roman food we could not eat for the rest of the day! Her advice including authentic Italian restaurant locations allowed us to fine dine inexpensively on Roman Cuisine for the rest of the week away from the tourist trips! When in Rome do as the Romans do! I recommend this tour as a must without reservation for anyone visiting Rome. PS I tried to submit this review immediately on my return, but could not submit it on your web site.
Wonderful and intimate tour for our family. Enjoyed the insights and surprises round every corner!
incredibly knowledgeable and personable guide. Claudio helped make the history of Trastevere come alive.
Would highly recommend this tour.

This was my first tour with Viator. It was so much fun. I booked 3 tours before we left and I am soooo glad I did! First big trip for us. So Viator was a great choice for us in getting to know what was out there. Our guide Antonia was happily greeted by the shop owners. They had tasty treats for us to sample. Go on this trip very hungry because there are so many good things to sample and also at least 3 sit down tastings besides the shops we entered. The open air veggie, fruit and flower market was fun too. I would take this tour again.
Francesca our tour guide was just amazing - this was our best tour of the entire vacation. We had never done a food walking tour before and it was absolutely terrific - so much so that 2 days later we went back to the same area to explore some more, and enjoy some of the food we tasted on our tour. It was also such a treat because it was just my husband and I and one other guy. We all got along famously. It was a great day - Recommend this tour to everyone
This tour was amazing!
This was a great tour! Our guide was amazing, so knowledgeable and friendly! There is so much food provided on the day and we got to see places we would never have thought of going into. Really recommend it!
Francesca was super knowledgeable and friendly! loved hearing about the cultural history of the different regions, and of course all the food we tasted were so yummy!
Another great experience. must do.
Food was delicious, tour guide was very knowledgeable and very congenial. Wish we could have gone into the Synagogue in the Jewish Quarter.
Excellent tour guide, small group, excellent food samples, interesting history provided
This tour was the best of my whole experience. It was different and with the Tour guide Miquel Martin make it so interesting and it was really a pleasure meeting him and make everybody so comfortable. He is by far a really positive person and make the experienced unforgettable. Thank you so much. Will definitely recommend this tour - with Miquel.
Such a wonderful experience. Our tour guide was such a sweet, knowledgeable lady with many tips and stories of the Rome food scene. You really get value for your money. Our stomachs were full! Special thanks to our tour guide who made this an amazing trip to Rome I will never forget.

This was a fantastic little tour. Make sure you are hungry before you start because by the conclusion, you will be most satisfied.
It was fascinating to learn of various food making techniques, history of the stores we visited and a little bit about the Jewish quarter.
If you love food - Italian food - just do this tour. Excellent value for money and good memories to take home. Very good guide too.
This tour provides lots of food. Don't eat ahead of time. Learned how to buy pizza and other foods at an Italian bakery.
