Amazing Food Tour!
I did the food tour with my girlfriend and I our guide was Giulio. Giulio was an amazing tour guide, he was very informative and incredibly friendly. He showed us one of the best places to get cheap pasta, I'm glad he took us there because we went back to that restaurant everyday until we left Rome. I definitely recommend taking the tour on your first day in Rome, so afterwards you know the best places to eat. Also Giulio can give you a list of other great places in Rome to check out depending on what you're looking for.

Fabulous Experience
Nov. 2020 • Couples
" We had 2 days to spend in Rome so decided instead of trying to figure it out on our own we'd use Tour With A Local. We chose the 10 Tastings of Rome tour with Elena. Had an amazing time, saw many amazing sites, tasted some delicious food and enjoyed Elena's company as she shared her many stories or Rome. We would definitely do it again and highly recommend it. Thank you Elena! Hope to see you again soon! "

Perfect Experience
Nov. 2020
Maurizio is the man! We talked about many things beyond food, it was an amazing experience thanks to him. We learned not only about Roman food, but also Italy country. We really appreciated the honest and respectful approach that he had with me and my girlfriend. The food and cultural knowledge that we acquired will never be forget by us. Thanks a lot!

Perfect Introduction to Rome!
Oct. 2020
Although the menu below won't let me record a date earlier than 2020, we visited Rome in October 2017. This was the second tour we took with Matteo during our week in Rome. We had our one year old son in a carrier for this walking tour around the Campo de Fiori and Pantheon area. Along with taking in a few iconic sights, this tour was the highlight of our visit. We had trouble getting on a bus (take the metro wherever possible and walk) but Matteo was gracious and never made us feel rushed, though we were a few minutes late meeting him. We tasted some iconic Roman street food, truffles, suppli and zucchini flower, along with tasty gelato, espresso among other bites. We went back to some of the restaurants later in the week to enjoy them again. This tour was great value and fun and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it or take another withlocals tour again.

Wonderful tour
Oct. 2020
Roberta was very engaging and helpful. We (3 couples) enjoyed a great tour through small sides streets and tried a wide range of food. Pizza rossa, cheeses, traditional sandwiches, cafe, chocolate, cannoli and so much more. Some of the shops had been in business for over 200 years. She also gave us recommendations for places to visit during the rest of our stay. I would highly recommend this tour and Roberta. This review is from our trip to Italy in 2017.

A Unique Roma Experience
Dec. 2019
Although the menu below won't let me record a date earlier than December last year, I first posted this review in 2017 " We had a free Sunday in Rome before joining a cruise and so arranged this trip before we flew out. We had visited the city last year and wanted to do something different and more personal. The morning of the tour, Rome was hit by torrential rain and thunderstorms, public transport was affected and it looked like we would have to cancel. Matteo kindly offered to move the tour to the Monday (which we couldn't do). However, by midday, the weather brightened up and we were able to go ahead. What a lovely way to experience Rome! Matteo was so friendly and enthusiastic about his city. We tried all sorts of foods, from pizza to ice cream, visited some iconic spots plus some that were off the beaten track. We've since told so many people about our experience and would recommend both this tour & Matteo as a guide. We've given a "10" because Matteo really went the extra mile to make this happen. I gather that Withlocals is a fairly new enterprise, we wish them every success and we'll definitely check out what's on offer next time we travel. "
I'm re-posting the review to support the travel industry staff who've been affected so badly by this year's pandemic. I'm looking at visiting Rome next summer with my daughter and she definitely wants to do the food tasting tour if we make it.

Great introduction to Rome's food and dining customs!
Feb. 2020
A friend recommended this tour and Francesca for the guide and it was a wonderful way to introduce ourselves to Rome. Meeting up at Campo di Fiori was perfect, as it's the foodie center of the city. We were absolutely stuffed after our wanderings and tastings. Street food, upmarket, and overall dining customs were explained, along with history of the city. Our tour went past places we intended to visit later, like the Pantheon and Piazza Navona, and we collected the cards for the eateries we wanted to go to again. When we foolishly left them behind in the room one day, she quickly answered a chat request for the name of one place - service above and beyond the tour! Francesca was very knowledgeable and friendly. If you're not fluent in Italian, listen to her audio you'll see that you won't have any trouble following her English as she spent much of her life in England. She was also well aware that travelers are looking for value, i.e., not cheap or snobby eats, but good quality eats and worth the asking price. We did this tour the day we arrived in Rome and by the end felt like we could handle this busy city on our own. Highly recommended!

Loved the experience!
Jan. 2020 • Friends
Amandio is a terrific food tour guide! He knows his information from history to where the locals go for the best quality foods. You'll have samples of different types of foods throughout the tour and you'll also learn how it connects to Rome's culture. My friend and I went on a tour with him during the off seasons and we were lucky to have a private tour with him. We got the opportunity first hand to ask as many questions as we liked. Super friendly, humble, and funny. You'd be lucky to book a tour with Amandio!
