Simona was awesome. We thoroughly enjoyed the food, conversation, history, and laughs. Even though this was not a tour for gluten free, Simona called ahead and arranged uptions. Did i mention she was awesome?! Would happily join Simona on other small group food tours.

We had a fantastic time. Food was great and our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and the food. My teenagers enjoyed their evening a lot.

Taking this tour was a delicious way to introduce us to the foods of Rome. The variety was good and the historical information made these locations come alive.

Very pleasant activity that suits most people. You get both a city tour, history and food experiences - recommended!
