    We were one large group split into 3 smaller groups to facilitate restaurants and seating. We visited 4 different locations and sampled various kinds of food and wine, each of which were amazing. All the locations were within a short walk of each other, so the distance was nothing to complain about. It was about 4 hours in total, and we started a bit late to accommodate all the guests arriving, so plan ahead. Our tour leader Dory was amazing, kind, and incredibly knowledgeable.

    The food was excellent and towards gourmet! The tour took place in the lesser known district of Prati and was new territory for a Rome connoisseur like me. Our guide Ashley was very professional in telling stories about food and drink so that product, be it wines or food, brought you closer. Too bad that in the group the fun factor and who drinks more Chianti was more in the foreground. But on the whole recommended for food fine lovers.

    Ari our guide was great! She could tell us a lot about Rome and Roman food, was very friendly and authentic. The food was very tasty. The only pity was that the route was changed spontaneously and we - not as planned - visited other restaurants. Otherwise a must-do in Rome!
