This was a wonderful experience. Pablo was such a knowledgeable and friendly guide and the places we went to eat were outstanding. I did this solo and would highly recommend it for solo or partner travelers. The $45 price tag for this is a STEAL. Seriously, book it.

We couldn’t have asked for a better food and wine tour around Rome. I would highly recommend booking this trip as you get to see different parts of Rome that you usually wouldn’t think of as a tourist. We visited 5 places where we were able to try the local delicacies which were all really tasty and the wine was continuously topped up which we didn’t expect. It was the perfect end of a perfect trip to Rome.

We really enjoyed this food tour. Lucrezia, our guide was nice and full of information. We were a rather small group, so we had time to discuss and talk a lot. Although the weather was a bit chilly, we were moving from one spot to the other and enjoying the variety of food to keep warm. The place I enjoyed the most was the little shop were we tried old balsamic vinegar and Bonci pizza, of course! Amazing taste! I totally recommend this experience!
