Very enjoyable and informative walking tour with some delicious food along the way. Our tour groups was only 4 plus our guide (Isabella), which was a perfect number. We all got along really well. Isabella was a great guide, keeping things interesting and entertaining, with lots of good anecdotes. I would highly recommend this tour if you enjoy good Italian food and an interesting but not too taxing walk.

Cynthia was a great tour guide! We easily made friends with her and she facilitated a friendly rapport among the group! She knew a lot of history about the neighborhood and all its Italian restaurants. We never would have learned all their back stories had we just been walking around ourselves. Very enjoyable! We recommend whole heartedly!
