Our food tour was fantastic. Julia, our tour guide, took us to various eateries, where we enjoyed the excellent food of Italy. For some of the food we ate, Julia would share the history behind the dish. Not only was the food excellent, but Julia was also a wonderful guide. On the SecretTours website, was the meeting location as well as the last stop of the tour. We mistakenly went to the last stop instead of the meeting location, at the beginning of the tour. Julia was very understanding and guided us over the phone to a location, where she came to meet us. She then walked us over to the rest of the group. I highly recommend this tour!

Really amazing! Everyone should do this kind of tour in Rome. Julia our guide knew so much about the food and also the history! She also have some good recommendations for restaurants and shops. The food places we went to were delicious! I did this tour by myself and was really happy i went!

Fiammetta took us on a wonderful trip trough the best areas in Rome. Wonderful streets, great food and an amazing guide. Would definitely do it again.

Ben was absolutely great! Very knowledgeable and funny. He made the tours fun and interesting.

Julia was a fantastic guide in this delicious and exploring tour.
