“Eating like a local.”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Francesca was a fabulous guide. Passionate about her home town and the food.
We had the mozzarella di bufala, piazza Blanca with mortadella. Delicious gelato in Trastevere; try the donkey milk sorbet...delish! It was the perfect walking tour and food tour on a sunny October day.

“Authentic food and fun on foot”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

How much fun could it be to walk around in Rome with a Roman guide (Valeria) to introduce and explain some of her favouirite local food experiences? Starting in Piazza Farnese by the newspaper kiosk we went to; cool bakeries, local specialty shops, norceina (pork shops), Jewish ghetto specialities, pasta serving then finishing with gelato. All the time reveling in the local history along the way. The walk was easy paced and fairly level with regular breaks to taste something else. We learned so much about the Roman interpretation of food and also mined excellent information to follow up on later for other meals getting suggestions for other authentic restaurants. Valeria was just awesome!

“Entertaining and delicious...a must do!”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

I can not think of a better way to start exploring Rome that Gourmetaly’s Food Crawl Tour. Our guide, Daniella, did a wonderful job of explaining not only the history of the food we tasted at each stop, but the history of the area and of Rome and Romans in general. You could tell she had a real passion for food and good flavors. Of course the food was wonderful… cheeses, salami, suppli, pasta and gelato….but the personal care and feeling that you were walking along the streets with not only a guide, but a friend made it a great, intimate experience. Plus, it was nice to do this tour at the beginning of our trip. We learned a lot about the local foods and were able to look for and try them at various restaurants throughout our trip.
I would recommend the evening tour. Yes, it is too late to see the food market at that time, but walking the streets in the early evening and basically eating a delicious, multi-course meal is well worth it. Plus, it ends in the Trastevere area which has great, local nightlife. Besides, you will want to return to visit some of the spots (and eat more) then next day and you can see the market on your own then.

We were so glad that we did this tour the first night in Rome. Our guide, Valeria, was very knowledgeable and charming. We experienced samples of food that we would never have tried. We even went back to a few of the places two days later. One of our very favorite tours.
