Unbelievable! Bo(Sarah) is a wonderful guide. She has a wonderful personality and obviously loves what she is doing. This tour is amazing in more ways than one. Not only are you shown different kinds of food typical of Roman life, you're educated as to the history behind the food. Each locale you visit is family operated, and welcomes you with open arms providing full size tastings of their specialties. You definitely won't go hungry!

When I first saw that our guide was a very young American who grew up in Rhode Island, I second guessed our decision to take this tour. But Alexandra was charming, and as knowledgeable about food in Italy as anyone could have been. We had a nice sampling of seven or eight different food stops, and tasted everything from the typical quick, standing, sweet breakfast, to small but renowned cheese and meat purveyors, to market vendors, and a sit down pasta lunch, all interspersed with some cultural asides. But my crowning moment came not just with our final stop for homemade gelato, but Alexandra's explanation of how to tell real gelato from the powdered mix stuff sold in 85% of the gelato shops in Rome. It made the rest of our trip significantly tastier. Alexandra was great, and the tour was well worth taking.

This was a fun and interesting tour. I probably wouldn't do this tour if I was only in Rome for a couple days, but for anyone in Rome for 4 or 5 days, it is a great way to get away from the tourist areas and learn something about the local food and culture, and the food we sampled was very good. Our tour Guide was excellent and very entertaining.

We were a family of three and we all enjoyed this tour immensely. Our guide, Emma, was terrific! A natural with a crowd, Emma was informative, funny and engaging. The tour was packed full of experiences. All of the various foods we sampled were very good and the pace of the tour was comfortable. Also, "Hi" to Emma's mom, who we hear will be readin

We had a wonderful time with Alexandra on the tour it was so informative and we learnt lots of traditions and ate lots of delicious foods. We made a trip back to Volpetti to buy lots of delicacies to bring back to England. My two children thoroughly enjoyed the tour and learnt lots. Thank you xx

Dominico our guide was great, he really involved everyone and made it very friendly. The food (and drink) was fantastic also. You learn some surprising facts about origins of certain foods (and Gelato!) and the history of the local area. A fantastic day was had by all. Thanks again to Dominico!!
We also did the walking food tour in New York and we will definitely be doing another one on our next jaunt... some time soon! :-) Highly recommended!

Excellent. Testaccio is a hidden gourmet base unknown for tourists. Tour guide is an American girl living in Rome for years. Very informative for understanding Italian cuisine tradition and specialities.

This was a great tour. Domenico and Emma were fantastic guides and made our food tour fun and educational. Wine, cheese, pasta and REAL gelato. Now, we are totally gelato snobs, knowing the difference between powdered gelato and fresh based on color and height. So fun! If you are into learning about food, local food and market history and meeting the folks that make it, this is for you. Thanks again Domenico and Emma!
