We loved this tour! We did it on our first night in Rome. We went to 5 different restaurants where they brought food out to you, and got to have some wine and beer at 2 of the stops. Our tour guide was wonderful (I can’t remember her name!). We still went out after to get more food because we were hungry after not eating for a while earlier in the day. Overall it was great to tour around and try some classic Roman food!

The tour was excellent!!! The tour guide, Monica, was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and fun!!! We were late for the tour and she went above and beyond to locate us so we could join the group. The tour included wonderful history of Trastevere and delicious food samplings!!
