Great way to taste food and drinks while learning a bit more about the culture, history and stories of Rome from an experienced local guide. Elisabeth Pettinari, our guide, was absolutely amazing by accommodating a bit of a last minute request as it was my wife birthday! Prosecco went down nicely with a "thchim thchim"!

We did this tour on the first day and that way you get to know a lot about the city right away. Our tour guide was Elisabeth and she did such a good job, she knew everything about the city and its history. Highly recommended and especially if she can show you around

So glad we chose this tour! Our tour guide Natasha was very knowledgeable and super friendly and the food we sampled was amazing. This tour is a must for anyone visiting Rome, the information passed on definitely helped make our trip even better.

Natascha led the tour very well, had an open ear for all participants and informed a lot about history, the country and its people. With her again and again.
