Experience Rome like a local in the city’s original foodie neighbourhood.
Wonderful Rome food tour in a non-touristy area of the city. Our guide Gianluca was enthusiastic and informative who brought this neighborhood to life!

Luca (Luke) was a fabulous guide, friendly, superb English and very knowledgeable. The food was fantastic, we only had room for small portions of the enormous and utterly delicious main courses, as we had eaten so many ‘snacks’ along the way!
I thought the guide was great and that we learned a lot as opposed to just eating.
Absolutely loved the food tour with Valentina. The tour is well-designed, with amazing food, such interesting bits about the history and information about the food and set in a great, off-the-beaten-track part of Rome which is lovely to discover. This was actually my second time doing this tour and I would still highly recommend it to friends.
Emma took us through her neighbourhood Testaccio, just like a good friend hosting and sharing the wonderful experience of her day to day life. We learned about the true Roman culture, and tasted wonderful food, along with beer and wine. The tour was fun and Emma was amazing!
Sarah was a lovely person, we felt very welcome, could learn a lot of things and had generally a great tour! The visited places are an experience worth
One of our favorite tours we’ve ever taken. Nasim was an amazing guide—so knowledgable about the neighbourhood, and Roman food in general. He made the tour really fun and enjoyable, and we feel like we walked away with real insight into daily Roman life.
The tour was really good and our guide was very knowledgable – he gave us loads of tips and told us all about the history of the area too which was really helpful!
