Thank you, Luca, for the fantastic food tour of Testaccio. Beginning at L'Oasi della Birra, we hit a well-curated selection of food and sites in the neighborhood. Although it was hot outside, the walks between each place were short, and all the stops were organized.

My husband and I had a great experience on this tour. Our guide Chiara was so knowledgable, engaging and fun. She made the tour that much more enjoyable. We had amazing food and really got a good sense of the local scene. Testaccio is not touristy, so you really felt you were experiencing what the locals do. Chiara also provided us with a great list of restaurant recommendations as well. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone traveling to Rome who loves food!

A friend of ours recommended Eating Europe's Trastevere Twilight Food Tour. They raved about it so we had high expectations. They were met and then some on our tour. Our tour guide Giorgia was fun, knowledgeable, and engaging and guided us through this fascinating and delicious tour. We made about 5 stops and enjoyed truly unique food and wine at each location. Though we arrived at the tour a bit drained from a long day of touring, all of that was forgotten by the time we reached our first stop and we thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the tour. Can’t recommend this tour enough!

Val was the most amazing guide! She was knowledgeable and charismatic. I felt immersed in Italian culture and welcomed. I learned a lot of history about food and wine and Val was so friendly and sincere. She was considerate of my elderly grandparents who were also walking with the group and fun and lively at the same time. This was the highlight of my trip to Italy and I would recommend this tour to everyone.

Spectacular! Our guide, Ariana was an absolute joy!! Highly, highly recommend the market tour/tasting and pasta making and eating adventure when in Rome! Tasting our way through food vendors in the Trastevere neighborhood, learning about food choices and how to make pasta was such a wonderful way to learn about daily gastronomic life in Rome/Italy. Our 10-year old daughter loved it - come hungry!!

Thank you, Luca, for the fantastic food tour of Testaccio.
Beginning at L'Oasi della Birra, we hit a well-curated selection of food and sites in the neighborhood. Although it was hot outside, the walks between each place were short, and all the stops were organized. We opted for the addon for a few extra drinks, which was fun. I'll be sure to look into anything the tour company does in future visits to Rome and Europe!

Unbelievable tour with Luca, this guy knows his history and on top of that does it all with a comical flair . The food was plentiful and delicious! We started with artichokes and burrata then pasta then porchetta then a risotto ball then pizza then biscotti and Italian custard and I forgot wine and beer !! The tour In itself was worth every penny but Luca made this an unforgettable experience !!!

This tour was amazing. Valter was an awesome, funny, very knowledgeable guide. We learned so much about Roman food and the history of the places we visited. Each place was special in its own way and we got to enjoy authentic foods, and we visited the beautiful Santa Maria Church. This was a perfect ending to our trip. Definitely reccomend it. Thank you Valter ♥️

We had a lovely evening with Emma as our guide. The places she took us were intimate and authentic- exactly what we were looking for in this tour. These were places local families own and where locals go. Emma was knowledgeable, friendly, funny, and spoke perfect English. She really connected with our family, making the evening even more enjoyable. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone coming to Rome.

Oh man! Francesca was amazing! She gave us a tour of some fantastic restaurants. Not only did we have good food, but she showed us little treasures throughout Trastevere. An underground wine cellar, fantastic cheeses and meats, and more than welcoming restaurant owners. Our tour group consisted of people from around around, so sharing stories and experiences was great to listen to. Top marks all around! We ended our tour off with some "Vitamin G" and I recommend trying the pear.

Luca was amazing!! The best tour guide and tour we have done. We have done several in Europe. The food and hospitality were outstanding.
We had a wonderful time. Luca remembered all 10 of our names after only being told once.
I would give 100 stars if I could.

This was the best food tour I have done! Fabio was an amazing tour guide, and the food we had was delicious. My wife and I have been of many food/drink tours in the past, but this one was the best. The amount of food and drinks we had were almost TOO much, and again, Fabio really elevated the experience to another level. 10/10 Recommend!

Amazing way to spend an evening in Rome...do not hesitate to book this fabulous VIP Rome Golf Cart Food Tour in Rome. Their gallery pics truly reflect the evening. We enjoyed spectacular food and drinks for four-plus hours while in the company of our guides Luca and Mario with only three others guests. We had such a great time my wife has already secured an upcoming tour with the same guide(s) for her mom later in the fall. Come hungry, leave happy!
