The tourist hordes can be overwhelming in Rome. Here's your chance to explore a more "neighborhood" area, with an expert at your side! Hande managed our questions expertly and we ate so well! Different areas of the city are toured on different days, so if you can manage it I recommend going when you first arrive in Rome in an area convenient to your hotel or apartment. Then you will be set for your stay on where to shop, coffee, gelato, etc. Alas we took the tour on our last day in Rome but we just had a wonderful time. I appreciated that the maximum group size for the tour is 6 and I thought the price point was very fair especially compared to some other options out there. I look forward to returning someday soon for more food and wine with Hande!

Hande was wonderful!.....very knowledgeable about the food and the culture of the region. Not only did we get a local feel for the food culture, we ate our way through the entire tour! It was some of the best food I've had! Highly recommend. You will not be disappointed. Go hungry :)

Hande did a great job! We knew Rome is difficult in August but still wanted to do this, hoping we can also get recommendations for our week - we stayed at an apartment. Yes, there were many places closed and our guide did point out some places she would normally include in her tour of the area, but honestly we didn't miss anything. She showed us around Prati (close to Vatican) and it was great. Don't want to give away her secrets obviously but there was a market, a bakery, a cheese shop, a cafe, a pizza place, a wine and beer store and two gelaterias. we ate great things, learned a lot and the rest of our week was saved, too. Fully recommend.

This tour is AMAZING. Hande, the guide, is an excellent Roman foodie - she knows where to find the most delicious cappuccinos, the best pizza by the slice, even the most scrumptious pastries from the Jewish ghetto. Hande not only encourages her tour to savor delectable cheeses, melt-in-your-mouth chocolates, and in-season fruits and vegetables, but she also teaches the group all about the importance of the quality and freshness of Italian food. I recommend this to anyone who wants a truly unique, educational, and enjoyable experience in Rome!

Hande lead us on a fabulous tour through Prati. Great value for the money...we learned a lot about the market and about how to pair wine with food. We loved the other family that took part in the tour and we will definitely take another tour with Hande in the future. Ciao Lana and Doce
