I can not recommend this tour enough! My husband and I were able to see Rome in a completely different light. Our OUTSTANDING guide Nina was not only knowledgeable, but she was engaging, friendly, and really knew her history. Even without the pizza making class at the end the tour was more than worth it! The pizza class made this tour just that much more unique and amazing! This was by far worth every Euro! If you are looking for something truly one-of-a-kind then you should definitely book this tour!
Nina, our guide, made this outstanding. Great information about sites we were walking around. Nina gave us,enough time to enjoy what we,were looking at. We ended switching to a pasta class and we can't rave enough about Nina and Chef M (can't get his name right). The fun, Chef speaking and showing us,what to do in Italian and Nina keeping right with him, translating all into English! Best time, thanks so much to Nina, we absolutely loved it!
This was a good tour, and the guide was great, but for our tour, the pizza class was mixed in with the pasta class. They do both at the same restaurant, and the classes happen at different times. The pizza class was much quicker than the pasta class, so we had a lot of time just sitting around. It was still a good experience, but just be aware you may have some downtime you weren't expecting.
This tour is really great if you arent staying in Rome long. We only had one full day in Rome and this tour allowed us to see so many things that would have taken us forever to find on our own. I would caution anyone taking this tour on a Sunday as we did because several sites were closed or had a church service in progress however our guide Chris worked hard to find other options for us to see if something was closed. Our tour was small 6 which was really nice and we all got to know each other. If youre someone who wants to spend hours at the Spanish Steps or Trevi Fountain this tour is not for you. Each stop is very brief for pictures and to take in the moment. This was perfect for us because we have no desire to stay in one place for a long time. If more time was desired though, Chris accommodated that. Pizza making was super fun and delicious!!!!
I have 2 complaints. First we couldn't understand the tour guides accent. They should have a native English speaker. Second, they didn't show us how to make the dough. We learned to roll it. They should at least model how to make dough. I also agree that the guide asks us too many questions.
