Very nice tour guide Sara

Pigneto Area: Street Art & Creative Hotspots Private Tour | Jan 2020
I booked a tour in Pigneto to see street-art because I was interested in experiencing more of Rome than the standard tourist attractions only. Pigneto was a great choice but most of all, my Tour Guide Sara Terrini made it an unforgettable experience. She is really kind and knew all the best places by heart. Her English was great and she had a lot to tell about the paintings and the history of the area. So not only about street art but about Pigneto/Roma in general. Very good, I would recommend also/especially when you are solo!

The tour guide Maurizio was excellent. He had a real passion for food and it was passed on effectively to us. He also has an amazing connecting power which made us feel at home. His ability to give that freedom to us enabled us to enjoy the food tour. His suggestion for take away food was great and the fod items have been well liked by our friends. The three hour tour helped us to find a great Italian friend. Thanks Maurizio.

Scammed by Paari

90 Minutes Kickstart Tour With a Local | Dec 2019
Our guide was over 45 min late and promised we would get a full refund. He then offered to walk us to our next tour free of charge which was starting in under an hour at the roman forums. We tipped him 20 euro because we felt bad for him, he claimed to be late because of exams. Withlocals and viator then refused to refund our tour claiming it just went ahead at a different time. So we were out of pocket by over 60 euros and didn't get anything for it. Paari couldnt even tell us a decent place to buy a sandwich in the area, very dissapointed - highly recommend you avoiding this tour and company.

Private Roman Food Tour: The 10 Tastings | Nov 2019
We misunderstood that we weren’t being picked up then rushed to the meeting spot. Guide left. Phone # didn’t work because we didn’t know + means add two 0s. By the time we reached guide 28 minutes later he refused to come back even though he was only 10 mins away. Very disappointed. Why didn’t he call us to see what happened?????? He was very confrontational on the phone Not impressed ....

Beautiful Castelli Romani Day Trip: Local Countryside Experience | Nov 2019
Our guide, Pier, was so helpful and informative. We had the privilege to share his passion for the wonderful villages in the Castelli Romani region. We learned so many new things about the history of the villages and important role it played in ancient and papal Rome. This apart from the incredible beauty, the very nice wine, the mushrooms and strawberries and so much more. Feast for the eye, heart and body... I think Nemi is my favourite village

Make your own Pizza! Family Cooking Adventure near Colosseum | Nov 2019
This was a fun excursion for my husband, our two friends, and myself. The food was fantastic and the instructor was knowledgeable. It was wonderful to go inside a typical Italian home. The information we were given by Viator was confusing. 1) We were told to be at an address at a certain time, but the instructor was given a different time (30 minutes later). We felt a little uncomfortable standing outside a building (next to the garbage and recycling binds) not knowing what we were supposed to do. I wished that each person would have been able to make their own pizza instead of just one person.

Private Roman Food Tour: The 10 Tastings | Sep 2019
On recommendation of a friend and who like me is a food professional I booked a food tour of Rome. Our guide Gabrielle was amazing! Very well informed, great English,. He filled us with interesting history and great out of the way food stops. We visited 10 places and really enjoyed him and every place we went. We went at 5 pm and made it our dinner was wonderful..I highly recommend this tour and Gabrielle as your guide!

Food first

Private Roman Food Tour: The 10 Tastings | Sep 2019
Knowing how much food plays a part in this culture we wish we’d done the food tour first. Our guide offered perspective and suggestions to further enhance our visit sadly, we left Rome shortly after our tour. My suggestion would be if you’re new to Rome do a local food tour first ☺️

Private Roman Food Tour: The 10 Tastings | Aug 2019
To us - this is a must do. This was the first tour we did when we arrived so we would know what to look out for while dining for the week. Our guide - Gabriele - was amazing. If all guides are like him, Rome will be our best trip ever. This is not just a food tasting tour. You learn a lot of history as well while walking from place to place. Do bring some water with you unless you want to buy at each location are stuffing yourselves. Would highly, highly recommend!!!!

A Local that can't take you to the sights!

Spend a Day Like A Roman: Customized Tour with a Local Guide | Aug 2019
We liked Chiara, she was a very nice person and we got on well with her but... She is a local that can not take us to all the famous sights of Rome because she is not a licensed 'tour guide' and will be fined if caught... Yes, we asked for a local to give us her view of Rome but expected to walk past and hear about the famous sights as well. I thought that was what we would be paying for... A little disappointed by this, and also she seemed a little bored towards the end and cut our walk short by half and hour. Probably because there was nothing else to show us since we could not see the sights!!
