This tour was well worth taking! Our tour guide Marco was excellent - provided so much information about the food culture of Palermo. We were a family group of 6 adults and 1 child and were all very full after the numerous food samples provided. We would definitely recommend doing this tour! Thank you to Marco for such a fantastic experience!
This tour was so informative. I recommend doing it early on in your trip so that you know exactly what tour order throughout your entire stay.
We attended this yesterday and it was an awesome start to our Italy trip. Valeria was our guide and we were fortunate to have her. She was a wealth of knowledge and shared local insight while we enjoyed the amazing seasonal food. Outstanding pasta and gelato among others. Highly recommended tour.
We had a wonderful tour with Antonia as our guide. She is very knowledgeable about Roman food and history. We had so much great food we didn't even need to eat dinner that night. Highly recommended.
Our guide was very pleasant and informative. The right amount of information - not too much to bore us, but enough to learn something. I wish we had spent a little more time trastervere and more information about the sights in that area. Overall a very nice way to spend a few hours in Rome.
The food guide had a PHD in archeology and literally grew up in the areas we visited. Her passion and joy not just for the food but for the history of the locations made this journey fascinating. Be prepared to learn as well as eat. It was great!
If choosing to book this tour, I highly recommend making it the first tour you go on. Our guide, Valeria, was superb. She was very knowledgeable, engaging and personable. I learned quite a bit about Roman food and culture while sampling the BEST buffalo mozzarella and gelato I've ever had. You won't regret taking this tour and if you get Valeria as your guide, even better.
Great time and our guide was great.
Highly recommend. Gave us ideas where to eat and what to see. Great insiders information on the real authentic food of Rome.
The tour was fun, the food was fantastic! I think it would be good to give the guides on these walking tours a radio and headsets for the guests. There is a lot of street noise and it was sometimes hard to hear her.
Georgia was a wonderful guide. She was fun and made the tour very interesting. We learned a lot about Roman history and food traditions.
Terrific food tour! Our guide was fabulous! Very knowledgeable about Roman history and food. We tasted meat and cheese from a sm. grocery, pizza, 2 kinds of pasta, fried squash blossoms, rice balls and gelato. It was all delicious. I would highly recommend this tour, esp. early on your vacation
I decided last-minute to do this tour and was glad I did, as it was very informative and delicious! Valeria was an excellent guide, and the small size of the group allowed us to ask all the questions we wanted. The food samples are very generous, and I was stuffed at the end.
Our guide, Federica was lovely and very knowledgeable. We not only enjoyed the delicious food but we also learned so much about the history of Rome and the neighbors we explored.

Excellent tour and Guide, Antonia. Be aware that the market is closed for to afternoon tour. There is so much food to eat that you will not want to eat for hours before the tour begins, especially the evening tour.
Very tasty, interesting, on your own you wouldn't come across all those places!
To improve: not much really, only a tiny little bit more cultural Information.
My husband and I spent 9 days in Italy in 3 cities and took a four tour in each one. We loved every tour and they were each a little different. I enjoyed the foods of Rome and our guide who had a degree in archeology with a specialty in old coins. I loved hearing about American Italian food and when it didn't make sense. My favorite part was in the Jewish Ghetto and seeing the street plates. It touched my heart. These food tours are a fun value because you get to eat, drink, walk through the streets of Rome with a Roman and ...learn about the people, culture and history.
Fun tour, very worthwhile! Best to do at the beginning of your stay in Rome if you've never been there before. There's a lot of great food, and the history fits in so naturally and logically with the food. All three neighborhoods are fascinating and easy to walk around, and if you're staying awhile you'll probably return to some places on this tour like I did. Also, at the starting time I found out that four other people had signed up for it, and when none of them showed up I assumed that Valeria would need to cancel it - but she was happy to conduct the tour with just me. Thanks Valeria!
