Massi was great! My friends and I scheduled a tour before the food tour that ran a little longer than expected. We were running late to the food tour, so I reached out to GetYourGuide who put me in touch with Massi and we were able to meet the group at the 2nd stop. The food was tasty and the gelato *chef's kiss*

Loved our tour! We had 10 in our group and they were a fun bunch. Our Guide was Ricardo and he was fabulous! Every place we went he stopped and explained the history of the buildings in the neighborhood and how Roman culture shaped life in that area. The tour was definitely not just about the food, and our guide was very knowledgeable. But… The food was fabulous!

Amazing tour! Our guide, Massi, was incredible, fun and engaging! He shared some of the history of Rome as well as the history of the foods we were eating! Even thought it was pouring rain for half of the walking tour, we had an amazing time with Massi and the delicious cappuccino, pizza, cheeses, pasta, wine, gelato and more! We would definitely recommend this tour!
