Our guide was late. Not the perfect start. He said he could not park. We were only 4 so that was nice.
The food was amazing and the places we went interesting. I would have liked a little local history along with the food. I have done several food tours and that was always included.

This food tour was great, definitely no shortage of food! There is a big range of food for everyone's taste buds. We had 30 min of free time during it which was well needed to let food settle. We loved that we were the only 2 in the tour, was more personal.

A good introduction to food and markets in Rome. I have done this tour previously - did not find this time quite as good as lots of the previous tour had been removed. However, we had an excellent tour guide and what we did see was excellent. Lots of food tastings so highly recommend you don't have breakfast before the tour. And opportunities to purchase products to bring home with you.

Really enjoyed the places that we went to on this walk. Great way to see how the locals live away from the tourist areas of the centre of Rome

We enjoyed the tour with our guide, he gave us a good insight to a variety of food and the history about the food and everything was very good tasting.

Highly recommend a food tasting tour as a way to explore other areas of Rome that as a tourist with limited time and knowledge, you often don't see. We had a small group of our five plus another couple, and our guide Nina was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and really made an effort to spend time with and chat to every person in the group. The only slight disappointment was the restaurant we went to for lunch, which was not our choice but one arranged by the tour operator. The owner made it fairly clear to us that he didn't really regard our group as worth spending too much effort on, and gave our table a half finished bottle of wine, telling us we could drink the wine out of water tumblers....a small complaint in the grand scheme I know, but it was a jarring note in an otherwise very enjoyable day. The only thing I would suggest to the tour operators is that they find another restaurant I'm not naming the restaurant, but you know who you are!!, but Nina was terrific. We had a great day and the chance to see a part of Rome which is very much off the tourist trail was wonderful.
