Got to experience Rome as the locals do! Guide Holly was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and accommodating!
This tour was amazing. It was just my partner and I on it. The guide was very knowledgeable about the food and the city! the stops and the food were amazing!
We had an amazing time and eat a lot of wonderful food. One of the best things that we did on our trip.
Holly was awesome - she had a ton of knowledge to share about Rome, the Testaccio neighborhood, and food and wine. The tour was very delicious and a TON of food. I would definitely recommend the tour...make sure to come hungry!
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!
The tour was great!!!True authentic food great stops our guide was very knowledgable of Italian culture and history.
I would highly recommend this tour.
Just go and do it. Wonderful guide. Wonderful information on the area as well as the food. Food was plentiful and everything I had hoped for. Bring your appetite.

This food tour was a lot of fun. It was a nice small group filled with great food and our guide was great. Would definitely recommend!
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
A tour not to be missed. Great itinerary with fabulous food tastings. Above all our guide, Holly was probably one of the best we have ever had on a tour. She was full of facts, very engaging and a joy to be with. This really is a tour doing.
A perfect tour, led by Holly, an amazing and knowledgeable guide. The tour allowed us time to ask questions, experience delicious foods and learn about the visited areas of Rome. We stopped at a beautiful shop with cappuccino, croissant and tiramisu. Having our names put onto the top of our cappuccino cream was such a nice touch. The next stop allowed for tasting rice balls with mozzarella and tomato sauce, salted cod and some pecorino which was a great lead-in before tasting two kinds of pizza. Visiting the open air market to taste test several types of Italian ham, mozzarella, cannoli and a taste of white wine with biscotti was a treat. The creme de la creme was going to Perilli for two types of pasta dishes, bread and wine and then off to Giolitti for some much needed gelato. This was truly a great tour that was made amazing due to Holly. We highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Rome. Definitely a day to remember.
A good opportunity to visit some great foodie venues you would not otherwise find. We had a very small group only 3 people, which was nice. Definitely bring your appetite, there is plenty to eat on the tour!
Holly our guide was delightful and a pleasure to walk around with. GOOD AFTERNOON SPENT IN GOOD COMPANY. FOOD PLACES WERE INTERESTING AND VARIED, with not too far in between stops.
