Jessenia Jess was a great tour guide small group made this tour very interesting for the foodie who wanted to ask question about the food we were sampling would recommend this tour to anyone
I highly recommend this tour it is a great way to get to know Rome and to experience some or should I say a lot of fabulous food!! Our guide Jessie was great fun and very knowledgeable about the food were eating. She really made sure we all had a great experience. A must do tour.
Perhaps the best part of our entire trip to Italy! What a perfect way to get the real flavor of this incredible city. And we cannot say enough great things about Jess, our tour guide. Her knowledge of the intricacies of Italian food was topped only by her tremendous personality and passion for her profession. From Bonci's unique Pizzarium to the inimitable Paciotti Salumeria, this was a truly perfect four hours in a wonderfully local part of Rome. ABSOLUTELY recommend this tour to everyone!
I really can't say enough about this tour! We had a small group, but somehow that made the experience more intimate. Every stop was an event, which was exactly the desired outcome of the guide, Jess. Her enthusiasm for food and wine was contagious! Well done Jess, it was certainly one of our highlights of Rome! make sure your mom knows you're the best guide ever
Our whole family, including two teenagers, loved this tour. Our guide Raluca was awesome - very energetic and with a real passion for food. We were glad we did this our first day in Rome - she gave us lots of great tips about where to eat and where not to eat, how to order, etc. And the food we had throughout the tour was all amazing - coffee and cannoli, cheese with truffle paste, aged balsamic, prosciutto, pizza, pasta, buffalo mozzarella and risotto balls from the market, and gelato including how to tell real gelato from fake gelato from powder, it was all amazing and I am forgetting several things!. We were stuffed by the end. All the stops were fairly close together, so there was not too much walking longest distance was maybe 10 minutes, but most were 3-4 minutes from each other. And she did a great job handling some of our family with special dietary restrictions one vegetarian, one nut allergy. We highly recommend this tour.
This was our favorite tour by far in all of Italy, and our only regret was that we didn't do it the very first day we were there! Raluca, our guide, was so friendly and such a wealth of information. We started with breakfast in the morning, consisting of a fresh Canoli and coffee, where she blew us away with her depth of knowledge on the history and production of Roman cuisine. As she took us from restaurant to trattoria to restaurant, we learned so much about the processes of wine production, cheese curing, truffle farming and much more- it was quite the crash course! We learned how to distinguish real gelato from the fake ones- something that would have been helpful our first day in Italy- as well as some local tips and tricks which were super helpful in saving money when ordering food or coffee. Her passion and joy for her field, along with the outstanding mix of flavors that we tried, made this tour such a pleasure. You will not leave dissatisfied, and you will definitely be full and feeling like you got every bit of your money's worth.
We love the tour and our guide Raluca, she was very enthusiastic and friendly. We learned so much more about Italian food and enjoyed every bite! We highly recommend this tour. Martha and Andrew
Jess took us for a food tour on June 29. What made this tour outstanding was not just the enormous range and quality of the foods and wines we tried, but the guide. Jess was passionate about Italian food and she knew details and truly understood and shared her knowledge enthusiastically. She was friendly and helpful. Cannot recommend Jess highly enough.
This food tour was absolutely amazing!! We were only in Rome for 2 days before setting out for our cruise and we wanted to eat as much food as possible before leaving and we were able to do just that! Not only was the food amazing but so was our tour guide. She was so personable and so nice. Her english was very well spoken and she kept us entertained the whole time. I highly recommend this company and this tour. Definitely worth every dollar.

Our tour guide Jess was amazing. Knowledgable, informative and passionate about the local food. Friendly and well organised. A good introduction to some local delights.
I chose this specific food tour because it was outside of the tourist area and it was the best decision. That food tour was just amazing. We got to taste so many things and also some wine. We learn a lot about food and Rome. Jess was the best guide we could have had. She is very knowledgeable and also very passionate about food. The 4 of us felt in love with her energy and smile.
This food tour is simply the best!!!!!!
I can and #39;t say enough about this trip!! I and #39;m not much of a and #34; foodie and #34; but my husband is. I signed us up for him but I LOVED every second!! Our guide Jesse was adorable! Very sweet, entertaining, and so knowledgeable! Such great food, with Jesse explaining all the history and tradition. Don and #39;t miss this!!
What a pleasant surprise this tour was! A fun, informative, behind the scenes tour of one of the food capitals of the world.
Greta Tour with knowledgable guide. My wife and I were fortunate enough to be the only two booked for the morning tour but we hasd a great time. Raluca, our guide was very knowledgable and had a great personality. Plenty of delicious food to sample along with some greta wines. We would encourage all our family and friends to take this tour teh next time they are in Rome. Thank you Raluka.
One of the best tour I and #39;ve ever taken. Our guide Jess was wonderful, knowledgeable and fun. We learned so much and ate fabulous food in very special shops and markets. I highly recommend this tour to everyone visiting Rome.
Among the 3 Rome tours that we booked from Viator, my wife and my two sons 19 and 22 liked this tour the most by far. My older son said that he liked it so much that he will consider joining food tours when he travels by himself in the future. The food that we had were awesome. The description of the tour on the website is accurate. We learned a lot about all different kinds of Italian food including coffee and wine and were able to apply what we learned to the rest of our trip in Italy, like how to pick good gelato, vinegar, truffle and cheese. Our tour guide Jess is fantastic. She is funny, knowledgeable and passionate about every food that we tasted and worked very hard to make sure that everybody enjoys the tour. We highly recommend this tour.
I have been on several food tours in Europe and I think this was the best one yet. Jess was enthusiastic and knew everything about the food and the neighborhood. The selection of food was interesting and good! I loved going into the market and seeing all of the different fruits and vegetables, an Italian breakfast, Bonci's pizza, cheese, prosciutto, several pasta tastings and gelato. The tour director was awesome!
Jess was great! We've been on 2 other food tours in Rome and this one was another outstanding trip. Lots of interesting history about the people and places we visited plus great food . The pizza was so good we returned for more a couple days later. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend it!
I truly love the entire Tour . This was my first FOodie Tour and it's great for the whole family. Every location I would see again if I was able to Return to Rome.
WE LOVED THIS TOUR!!!!! Our tour guide was fabulous and we loved every minute of the tour. Very educational and a neat experience! HIGHLY recommend this tour!
Excellent tour, our guide Jez was amazing so knowledgeable, fun and enthusiastic. We learnt lots about Rome's food and great places to eat and buy good produce. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Rome, especially first time visitors. Don't eat before you go as all the food tasting fills you up. Be prepared to have fun while learning more than you thought you would. Enjoy!
This was the highlight our our trip to Rome. We ate our way thru back streets of Rome where the locals eat and we toured/tasted food and wine at a local farmers market. Very informative and the food was awesome!! Jesse is top notch...extremly knowledgeable, enthusiastic and a sweet person.
