Wonderful wonderful tour. It says small group, and we got small group alright - it was just us, the three of us, which worked out fantastically! Our guide, Holly if I got it right was so sweet and patient and full of knowledge of the food and the lesser known history of this lesser known neighborhood. We started out going to the wrong place to meet, but she offered to come to where we were to meet us, which was a great help since we would probably have gotten lost trying to find it.
We visited a local market that has almost everything under the sun, food and not food. We got to try some not so common touristy food items, which were excellent and very tasty a particular cheese that is in the same family as mozzarella.......gosh I wish I remembered its name!!.
The wine tasting gave us plenty to drink, and the food samples........abundantly available and all for the taking. Please DO NOT eat breakfast before you go, because you will need all the room in your stomach to take it all in. Desserts were amazing two stops just for that. You really can't go wrong with this tour.
One last note is that because we had such a small group it just happened to work out this way, Holly was able to give us extra time in a shop that allowed me to purchase some really really good cheese, olive oil and truffle salt to bring home. I really appreciate all of her patience and help with that. It was not part of the planned itineary. All in all, we highly recommend this tour!

Absolutely the BEST food tour in Roma! It is outside the city center, but so easy to get to the meeting point via the metro. We toured in the Testaccio neighborhood of Rome, quaint and ever so friendly. The food was divine and Holly , our guide, was so much fun! We will never forget the tiramisu , buffalo mozzarella, pizza, pasta, vinegar, truffles, suppli, meats and cheeses, wine and gelato!! You MUST book this tour! I wish I had more stars to rate it!

An excellent tour, which gave us many more food tastings than we expected. The guide was brilliant - knowledgeable and personable female, sadly can't recall her name as she deserves credit for her guiding. We were originally intending to book on another of your Rome food tours, for which we'd seen good reviews, but it was full/unavailable on our date. We feared that 'off the beaten track' might be second best, but it certainly wasn't - it was brilliant. If this is a sample of your tours we'll certainly look you out for future destinations
