I would recommend this guided wholeheartedly. Not usually interested in mass organised tours following an umbrella wielding guide, this tour could be no further from what we experienced. The group was small and informal, The meeting place was a gem Sant Iganzio church unassuming from the outside a wonder inside Our guide was knowledgeable interested eloquent and enthusiastic not just in the desserts but all things Rome. We gleaned small nuggets of information not just on traditional street food that would have just passed us by, The Madonnas protecting citizens, the marble plaques commemorating the height of the flooding of Rome to fantastic restaurants to eat. The tour was well paced giving us time to taste the wide variety of desserts.From small pastries through tiramisu best you'll ever taste to ice cream with a couple of limoncellos thrown in for good measure.Talking to our guide we have decided to spend our summer break in Sicily so yes truly converted to all things Italian Would I go again yes but the same guide would help. Would I recommend it to a friend Yes. Because all those extra calories consumed are easily burnt off

This tour operated in the afternoon and was a wonderful walk through Rome discovering its sweet pleasures. The meeting point was at a lesser known church and that was such a delight! If it wasn't for this tour I would not have known it even existed. While exploring the streets of Rome we enjoyed dolce such as gelato, tiramisu, cannoli and so much more. You will be on a sugar high after this tour :

This tour was awesome and it didn't just involve food. We were able to go inside a couple of churches as well as learn about the history of several important places. All of the desserts we had were delicious and I had a great time.

OH YUMMY! This was so deliciously fun! I was the only per son on the tour. Walking with my guide Virginia was like have a friend show you around. Her knowledge of the area's history was fantastic and she was so gracious and answered all my questions in wonderful detail. AND THE SWEETS - well, they were out of this world. A great variety of taste treats, each one divine!

We were confirmed for this tour for 4 pm, but the tour leader was not at the assigned meeting place until after 4:30. We would have left and missed the tour except that 2 other people were there waiting for a 4:30 starting time. We were never informed of change of time. The publicity for the tour indicates information about the desserts, but we were given only the ingredients and asked to make choices of tastings. Background information was lacking.

I spent an awesome afternoon with Rosaria beyond my expectations. So much information about history and culture, all connected to food! I discovered new flavours and a range of high quality cakes and desserts. And I "met" Tosca.
Highly recommended!
