Whatever time trip you choose don't eat before you go on this tour, this is not a tour you will leave feeling hungry. Sample very Roman food in one of the less touristy parts of Rome.
We missed the day tour because our train was late. They were so helpful in helping us book a tour for the evening. Our guide was amazing, the tour went beyond our expectation. We learned about the local foods, and drinks of the locals in Rome! The tour we took was the Supper Walking Tour!
Wonderful in every way. Superb experience. Our guide, Emma, was not only thoroughly knowledgeable about food, Rome, and the intense food culture of the neighborhood we visited, the food-shop vendors and merchants knew her well, addressed her by name, and showed a lot of warmth--all things that convinced me of their mutual respect, professionalism, and humanity. The merchants could not have been warmer to the group members as well. The food itself was astonishingly good and quite varied, and the introduction to the shops alone worth the price of admission. How would we otherwise guess, for example, that a very unassuming storefront houses some of the best breads and pizzas in Rome, and has for generations? Very grateful that Emma also took us through some related historical sites along the way, such as the lovely Protestant cemetery where famous poets are buried, also giving us a lovely respite to re-gain our appetites between tastings.
This was the highlight of our trip. Emma, our guide, was fabulous. Each of the destinations was exceptional and all of the owners seemed to genuinely enjoy having us there!
This was so much fun! Our guide, Anna, really knew her stuff and made it big fun. We visited butcher shops, bakeries, a fish market, ate our fill at a notable pasta restaurant, visited John Keats grave in a wonderful botanical garden cemetery, sampled all kinds of cheeses, meats and basaltic vinegars in a fancy deli and had a wonderful time! I would definitely recommend this one!
This was so much fun. Great to see a part of Rome that only locals see. Learned so much and had samples of great food. Would highly recommend and can't wait to try in other countries. Viator tours are terrific, they made our first visit to Europe wonderful
Really enjoyed this tour!
Our guide was excellent and provided just the right amount of information!
And so much wonderful food to learn about and taste!
Enjoyed learning about the neighbourhood and it's history and particularly liked our visit to the cemetery to see Keat's gravesite.
Highly recommend this tour!
My wife and I absolutely loved the tour. Our guide Sarah was very knowledgeable and a fun person, and the food was just great. Definitely recommended.
Loved this tour. Lots of fun seeing the less touristy side of Rome, as frequent visitors to Rome, we now feel as though we have a new neighbourhood which we will return to. Insightful info, delicious food, definitely worthwhile. Kids loved it too.
Saw the reviews on this and decided to sign up even though not foodies. The BEST part of our trip to ITALY! HIghly recommend this as it take you away from the tourist parts of Rome and you get to experience and eat like a local Luca was are gastro- guide and took us from trying balsamic vinegar, to gelato and everything in between. Small group tour that starts as strangers and ends as friends- hard to be strangers when you eat together
Our Food Walking Tour was really good. The tour guide was informative and had a passion for food. The tour was organized and all the food vendors were really nice. Also, all the food we tasted was great.
Our guide Gigi was fabulous! Loved every moment! Highly recommend.
We loved the tour! Our guide was outstanding. She enjoyed her job and transmitted her enthusiasm to the group. We did nine food tastings which were much more than a tasting. We learned about the shop owners, their lives. We met them all and our guide interacted with all of them. It was a wonderful walk through a Rome neighborhood!
This is a great tour, perhaps one of the best we did while in Rome. Francesco was a tour guide, he was charming, humorous and full of great information about places to eat in Rome. The stops we made during our tour were filled with amazing food, we actually went back to one of the shops after the tour to purchase some goodies. You can not go wrong with this tour, worth every penny!
This tour was VERY fun. The food was awesome as well as our guide.
I absolutely loved this tour and would do it again tomorrow if I could. My 10 year old foodie granddaughter Lucy also enjoyed it and was 100engaged at all times! As for our guide Domenico ... Well we loved him also. The whole tour was fun, informative, interesting and a very enjoyable experience. Domenico even concluded the tour with a rendition of Lucy in the sky with diamonds which was something Lucy will always remember! Thank you Domenico from Marg and Lucy from Brisbane Australia. One of the highlights of our trip!
We thoroughly enjoyed the food walking tour and our lovely guide, Anna, provided a great commentary. This was just a small taste of the true Rome, and my husband, and two children aged 21 and 14 also had a great time tasting their way through prosciutto, fritte, pasta, and gelato to name but a few of these wonderful foods. Another highlight was seeing a Pyramid in Rome - who would have thought. Highly recommended.
The food was amazing and you felt as if you got a real insiders tour of Roman cuisine. Loved it!
Testacio is a bit off of the tourist path. It was wonderful to explore this rising food Mecca. Our guide was absolutely fabulous
This was a great tour....well worth the money! Tour guide was quite interesting and knowledgable and we thoroughly enjoyed all the stops, especially the market! Tour landed about 4 hours Nd as others have warned....do not eat before you go!
This was our favorite of the 3 tours we did in Rome, Francesco was a wonderful guide -- funny, warm, energetic, and with a nearly native command of English. Walking around Trastavere was really cool, since that's a part of Rome not many tourists see, and the food along the way was delicious. Our tour group members were a lot of fun as well. I would even do this tour again.

Great tour. Thanks Chiara for such a wonderful experience.
this was our second time on this tour. The guide was excellent, the food delicious and the history interesting. It was a hit with our 16 year old granddaughter as well. I highly recommend this tour. One of the best in Rome!
What can I say? This tour was made for me. As a chef, I'm sure others on the tour learned more than I did, but there was still a lot of interesting information. The guide was just fine, and all the foods we sampled were above average. You can get full, so plan accordingly. It's not so much trying things you've never had before, but having a wide variety of Italian food in Italy...like a giant Best of Rome buffet great for people only in town for a short time. We also made interesting stops at the neighborhood cemetery to view some famous graves and the Pyramid...which totally appealed to me but may have confused some others on the tour.
