What a great tour!! What a great tour guide!! What amazing food!!
Miguel was incredibly knowledgeable about food, about the history of the food and about the history of the areas we visited. Be prepared for a lot of walking. But you won't realize how far you walked until you realize look at a map the next morning. This is a great tour and one which I highly recommend.
I am so happy my husband and I did this tour. Fiona seems like an incredibly intelligent and interesting person, so as a tour guide, it was wonderful to listen to every bit of knowledge she had to offer not just about the food, but of history and art and Rome as well. Great value for what you pay!!!
Tour with dinner and wine? NEWS FLASH--no dinner and cheap wine. basically the tour consists of six stop at local food places. Our first stop was at a meat and chees market wher we got to sample a few small pieces of chees and an ounce of Proseco. The second stop was at a local fish place that's even Bacalla. Salted cod deep fried.not at all appealing. The next stop was at a place for Bruschette...we were served samples with unappealing toppings. Nextwe went for a slice of cheese pizza..yep just one small slice. Our guide told us we would finish the evening with a bowl of spaghetti then on to a gelato shop. At that point my wife and I had enough. None of the places we stopped at were place we would have chosen to eat. We were re very disappointed. It seemed others were as well. So we excused ourselves and went back to our hotel. Our guide was very entertaining and pleasant but overall the tour as nothing like the description. Don't waste your money.
The evening food tour was fantastic. Definitely start out hungry! The guide was wonderful, and it was great that it was a small group there were 7 of us, as we got to know everyone else. The food was wonderful, and there was lots of wine to go with it! A little history added in too. It was one of the highlights of our time in Rome! I'd recommend it very much!
A great way to both get away from the tourist mobs at the famous sites and to sample some bona fide small Roman restaurants. Trastevere is charming and cool. The walk over the bridge is wonderful, a great photo op. Very good value for the . The last stop, the formal dinner was somewhat meh however. The sampling of different cuisine is excellent and the breaded and quick fried cod is truly a treat, don't call it fish and chips, nope. The butcher shop, an old school non chain is a nice tip of the hat to a semi vanishing breed here in the 'States.
