Great activity, especially if you are solo traveller like I was. There were 8 of us from different countries. We had 4 stops and tried 4 different Italian traditional drinks. I would highlight caffè correto. Our guide Aida, with her humbling personality, told us some interesting stories about Roman history. Guys from the group were so nice and after the tour ended we continued to hang out and stayed out until 3 am. One of the best nights in my life undoubtedly.

The tour was great, much more than just drinking, the guid helps create a great fun dynamic between the travelers and teaches all kinds of fun facts about the city and the drinks! We had Anastasia she was great!!!
