Our market tour with Rita was excellent! We did great tastings of Olive oil, balsamic vinegars, sauces, cheeses and meats. She was so knowledgeable and had a wonderful cheerful personality! After the tour we went to the restaurant and learned how to make dough with Leonardo. He was also amazing and we learned how to make the perfect pizza dough. It was an amazing experience and we loved every minute!!!

Amazing !! I was a bit nervous at first but after the demo and the guidance of Marcelo I was super confident at the end of the tour. And what a tour ! We saw everything and had lots of stops for photos, we basically did Rome in 2 hrs without getting sore feet. Would highly recommend this trip 10/10

Fantastic experience for our first night in Rome. Dario was our driver and from the first moment to the very last, was so enjoyable with him! He was engaging and interesting and very knowledgeable. He took us all over, showed us some sites that we wouldn't have seen otherwise. Highly recommend!

Karolina was so sweet, knowledgeable, and went at the perfect pace. We got to appreciate everything we saw and she had amazing information to share. This was a great way to familiarise ourselves with Rome - I recommend booking it for one of your first nights in the city.

Rita was the perfect guide, telling us about the history around us and the food we were tasting. The pasta class was fun too, what a great venue!
