Our guide, Jennifer, was very friendly and knowledgeable about all the local food in the Travestere region. We went to a cheese shop, a pizza shop, a meat shop, a gelateria and a bakery. The food was great and it was nice learning about the culture and history of Roman cuisine. Would highly recommend to anyone who would like a local food experience!
This was an amazing experience (one of the main highlights of our entire Italy trip) and I suggest it to anyone that is travelling to Rome! Our guide, Nicole, was so passionate about the food, history and culture in Rome. It was infectious! She was extremely knowledgeable and provided the history of a couple different places that we passed while walking. She was also very personable and shared her personal life experiences while living in Rome. It was like spending the afternoon with an old friend! This is a must-do activity!
Andrea was simply amazing. His openness, love for food, and attention to detail was contagious. He clearly is not faking it, his knowledge and love for the art of food making was clear and illuminating. My wife and I went on the food tour of trastavere and testachio with 'the eating Italy' food tours and found there service to be more complete and developed. Also, both times we left their tours, we both were very full and not hungry. The portions on your tour were about half of what we had in the other tour. Because of that, I felt that the value was not as good. However, Andrea was much better than the guides on the other tour, who seemed to just have a packaged presentation. I hope this feedback helps.
