Toni was incredible throughout the whole tour. We got to try a variety of traditional Italian food and drink. We were so impressed with the food tour that we are booking the London food tour in the next couple of weeks. It’s a great way of seeing the city and trying some good local food!
Extraordinary food is made by extraordinary people. Whenever we find very special food in Rome, we know behind each culinary creation is someone who is very passionate about what they do.
On our tours, you’ll not only taste these delicious treats but you’ll also get a chance to meet the people who prepare them.
Food tastes even better when you know the story behind it.
