What people are saying about Rome

Overall an excellent trip. Quite expensive but you get a lot for the price. Pablo the tour guide was excellent and great at topping up drinks and ensuring that everyone was included with lots of stories and anecdotes. Some really great produce on offer- lots of small local venues we would not have found on our own. Think we thought the restaurant meal may have included more BUT by the end we were very full as lots of dishes were tried. Overall well worth doing as a food tour in Rome. Thankyou Pablo!!!

Fun! This pizza making experience was just that. Vincenzo instructed us on the art of dough making which we got to try ourselves, provided us with ingredients to make our own custom creations, showed us the technique needed to get the pizza in the brick oven - harder than it looks and then we ate the best pizza Ever. Vincenzo is an incredible host and a wonderful instructor.
