Roman Food Tour: The 10 Tastings

We thoroughly enjoyed our food tour with Francesca. It was a unique way of getting to know Rome and Roman cuisine. All the places that we visited throughout the tour were gems. Our favorite part was the introduction to several types of truffle and balsamic oil... a must if you are interested in italian cousine.

Off-the-Beaten Track Rome

Valentina gave us a wonderful tour of areas in Rome which we had never visited. We are a well travelled couple and have been to Rome many times. We visited an area which was architecturally fascinating that was developed in the 1920’s. Valentina was full of information and gave us a comprehensive background of the two areas we visited . We were pleased with the choice of neighborhoods and found her to a lovely person. Highly recommend. Estelle

Skip the Line: Colosseum&Hidden Spots of Rome Tour

40 minutes prior to designated meet Cecilia sent a message asking to bring forward the tour by Hal an hour, we were still at lunch.

It was clear to us all she wanted to be somewhere else and didn't seem that bothered. She could not answer a lot of questions that I had and it was all over in 2 hours and for €249 frankly it was a rip off.

I will be telling as many people that ask me not to take this tour, just do it yourself without an expensive guide.
