Our guide shared his knowledge & love of Caravaggio with us, along with outstanding recommendations for books, more pieces to visit and where, along with Milan recommendations for churches and historical sites. Couldn't recommend this tour more! I have nerve damage so we had to make frequent stops along the way but he didn't act like it was ever an issue or tried to rush the experience, which was so appreciated!

This was a fabulous tour. Most food tours have you standing up and eating a small portion as you go. Not this one! We sat down at multiple places and even when we stood, it was for short periods of time and the food was worth it! Hilaria was our guide and she had so much knowledge! So not only did we eat, we learned so much! I would highly recommend this tour and especially Hilaria!

The tour was excellent but the only thing I wanted to add was that it was just a tad difficult to find the tour guide. Maybe better indication for the guide at the meeting spot. Otherwise I fully recommend this tour as it was insightful, fun and really beautiful.

I loved this tour! Even though Rome has a big nightlife, the sights had way less people around and were really cool to see some lit up. The stop for gelato was fantastic and the guide was knowledgeable and had a great personality!

This was a great experience and we highly recommend you do it. Very interesting and great fun. There is a lot of food so go hungry. Also the food was amazing. Be aware there is plenty of walking.
