Wonderful tour in a non-touristy part of Rome, a short walk from the ancient central area. John Luca was an enthusiastic and informative guide who brought this neighborhood to life. There was plenty to eat and drink, so come hungry!

It was wonderful to learn so much about food from a knowledgeable and passionate guide. The food was fabulous. We are empowered to make really excellent food choices in the future.

We had a wonderfull tour with our guide Rich. He was relaxed, but enthusiastic. We tasted a lot of different foods and our stomaches were completely full after the tour. Extra bonus: after the tour, at the last stop, Rich gave us a list of more authentic restaurants that he and his fellow tour guides had made. We tried a restaurant that evening and the food was delicious. For me personally, I was pleasantly surprised that at ecey stop, they had made a lactose free version, without compromising on taste or experience. I told the tour guide beforehand however ;)

We had a great morning tour of Testaccio with Valter! Delicious food. Wonderful tour guide who kept us all entertained and informed. Great way to see a non tourist side of Roma. Grazie mille Valter.

Gianluca brought great energy to the group and was an absolutely amazing guide. It was clear that he loved the neighborhood and wanted everyone to enjoy their time. We came away with a lot of respect for all the establishments, for the neighborhood in general, and for Gianluca himself (as well as happy stomachs of course). Definitely recommend this experience to anyone who enjoys food and wants to see a piece of Rome that so many others never glimpse.

Obviously all the food was good, but the fact that we sat down for a meal with wine was exceptional. It gave us a chance to bond with the rest of the group. Valentina was fabulous. Very friendly and approachable with questions. I liked that as we walked she gave us local history.

Go with Rich - it's more than worth it! Our tour guide Rishad Noorani made this tour an unforgettable experience. His talk about history of the area, food, and all the other details was very interesting. We had a lot of fun, besides the wonderful tastings. Thank you Rich!

The tour was well beyond my expectations. Our guide, gianluca, was exceptional - warm, fun, and super informative - sharing lots of interesting details not only about the food, but also the history of the area, cultural “curiosities,” and the many places we visited. As the tour recommends, definitely arrive hungry! I couldn’t recommend this experience more highly!!

I loved the variety of food, shops and restaurants. While you don’t need the drink package, I recommend it to enhance the experience. This opened my world to a gastronomical experience I know I would not be able to do on my own. I can go back armed with some knowledge of the food and the market of Testaccio. Gianlucca was a wealth of knowledge and personality of the area. I highly recommend!!!

Nesim the tour guide was brilliant at illustrating the relationship between food, social history and local culture. His knowledge of food production and preparation was informative and delivered in an engaging and enthusiastic manner. Testaccio's location adjacent to the River Tiber meant it played a strategic role as a warehouse for food imported into Rome. An association with food continued with a slaughterhouse open until the 1970s that employed five thousand local people and resulted in the development of the neighbourhood as a residential location. The tour began at a local bakery where we sampled small pizza pieces and got to view the vast range of biscotti. The next stop was a delicatessen where different vintages of balsamic vinegar were sampled along with cheeses and cured meats. The indoor market provides a wide range of produce - meats, fish, cheeses, fruit and vegetables and an array of food stalls selling paninis (which we were given accompanied by a beer) suppli (a fried rice ball with mozzarella and tomato ragu) and bruschetta that we again got to enjoy. The tour visited a local restaurant where three traditional Roman portions of pasta were served ( and explanations were provided about ingredients and how to prepare these dishes) with carbonated water and wine. The tour then concluded with a trip to an authentic gelato shop where we again sampled the produce. Throughout the tour, we were provided with suggestions of where to eat and what to look for when buying food and drink. Rome is full of historical monuments and artefacts and this food tour highlights the social and cultural significance of food as well as provides practical advice to enhance your experience when visiting! We thoroughly enjoyed it, great value for money if you like food, history and sound advice! Testaccio is an area we would look to stay in next time, we liked the vibe and the food connections and the eateries!
