Our initial guide was taken ill, so we were offered a couple of alternatives, one one a different date and another in the area of CampoDei Fiori, which we decided to take. Our guide Monica, was warm, friendly and very knowledgeable. She looked after our group of 9 so well - making sure we were in the shade as much as possible (temps in the mid 30's, super hot), making sure we could all hear her and that we kept together as a group. Monica had a lovely sense of humour and shared some of her background with us as well which was really nice.. It's the first time we have been on such a tour. It is a great way to taste lots of local, tasty food (cured meats, rice balls, pizza and gelato) and drink (red wine and beers) and learn more about the area you are visiting. The tour was also well timed, in terms of length and time of day. From now on, I will try and do a tour like this everywhere I go, although any future tour guide will have a challenge to beat Monica :) Mille grazie!

Unfortunately I was unable to go on this tour since the tour guide got sick, but they placed me on a very similar tour in camp di fiori at the same time! The tour guide was extremely nice and knowledgable, providing lots of information about the local food and some history about the sights near the tasting areas. Overall the food was delicious and the information was informative and fun!

The tour was a nice highlight of our trip, we did it right at the beginning of our trip and then had a lot of tips for further visits to this district. Our guide Matthias offered us a great mix of history, culture and of course Roman cuisine. Everything was very tasty, we didn't need dinner anymore. The tour is a nice change from the classic Colosseum etc. Five stars from us.

Our whole family really enjoyed. Great way to see and learn about a part of Rome that we would not have been able to do on our own. Food was great, this was dinner for us and introduced us to some places that have other locations in the city such as Gunthers Gelato.

Amazing tour! Excellent guide! Unmissable tour for first timers in Rome! Definitely 5 starts
