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!
