Maria Vicari, from Katie Parla Tours, led us through the food scene in Testaccio and Trastevere. She was wonderful, not only in leading us through the terrific Testaccio Market, but also in just her coverage of local history, everything from the history of Trastaccio's now-defunct stockyards to the history of Rome's Jewish population. Lots of bang for the buck. And she's a really nice person, great to share time with. Judging by Maria, Katie has clearly done a great job staffing her operation with good people.

My mum and I had a great time with Arianna! We booked the Centro Storico tour and were not disappointed. Arianna listened to what we were interested in and ensured we got to visit places, hear stories, and try foods that matched our interest. She was so warm and welcoming and incredibly knowledgeable - anything we asked, she had loads of information about. We easily could have listened to her all day! We were also really pleased with the booking process and liaising with Vanessa - she was really prompt at responding and super friendly and helpful.

Arianna was our guide for a 3 hour tour of several food areas of Rome. She was awesome in every way. Could not recommend this more highly. It was a highlight of our short time in Rome. We learned a lot about pizza and street food, but also about Rome its culture past and present. She was articulate, very knowledgeable and engaging. We will definitely do a tour again next time we are in Rome!

We highly recommend the food tour and the cooking class as well. Both are complementary and works well over a 2day period. Staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Fun for the entire family!
