Our guide was Matteo and he gave a marvelous tour, very knowledgeable about the origins of the food and drinks but also about the historical significance of the areas we visited. I would definitely recommend the tour . It was 4 hours in total , we covered a wide area but at a leisurely pace and all on level ground. Excellent


Matteo was an outstanding guide and so much fun-informative, interesting and delicious! We had a great evening!


Our guide, Mattia! The food was excellent! Suppli at Roscioli, and pasta at Origano was superb! The tour was fun and Mattia took us to the best places and gave us some great background and stories about what we saw! Thank you!!! Highly recommend!!


Great tour with lots to eat and see Greta was a great guide Recommend this tour and ask if you need something different to eat if you don’t like cheese like me!


Our guide Marco was knowledgeable, helpful and made it easy to identify the different food presentations. We also loved the little known historical sights between each location. It was a local view of the city. So much fun and delicious.


We had a small’ish group so it made it more personable. Greta was very knowledgeable about the city’s history and she made it interesting. All of the food choices were phenomenal!
