Don't miss it while in Rome!
Tour was fantastic! I came by myself and had a great time with Selene and other guys, eating best italian specialties, discovering interesting stories and places about amazing Rome. Selene is full of positive energy, highly knowleadgable and very passionate about the city. I would reccomend this tour to everyone, don't miss it while in Rome! :) Laura

WOW...CUISINE AND CULTURE AT ITS BEST
Max and his wife entertained us for hours with excellent food, wine and lots of great insights pertaining to Rome and it's culture. Six course meal was so wonderful , very tasty and beautifully presented. This was an unforgettable experience to take back home to the United States complete with pictures. Max picked us up from the hotel and delivered us safely so we would not get lost.
THANK YOU, PHYLIS AND MARY

I cried during the cheese tasting...in a good way...
We were in Rome for 3 days this past July and decided to book this tour last minute, the morning of our tasting. Like a Local Guide was able to confirm the reservation by the afternoon. We met Stefano at a local family owned restaurant that had been a part of the family for 150 years. We started with a glass of wine and a local sparkling beverage for my mother and my sister as they were not drinking. Stefano was very knowledgable about Rome and Roman history. We went to places that I would not have gone into on my own.
My favorite part was the cheese tasting. I have a soft spot for cheese and wine in general and we went to this local cheese shop. The owners were so kind to let us come into their store. Stefano had a map of Italy and as we tasted the different cheeses, he talked about the region they came from. The owner let us try this soft blue cheese that was out of this world. Maybe it was the heat (we went during the heat wave), maybe it was the wine, maybe it was the passion with which the Stefano and the owner were discussing the cheeses, but it literally brought tears of gratitude to my eyes. An excellent way to spend the evening that I would not have been able to do on my own.

Gratitude, love, and light!

Don't leave Rome without doing this tour!
My boyfriend and I decided to book this tour for our last day in Rome. We started off the morning on a different tour that was just awful and put us in such a bad mood. However, this tour was so wonderful and it just erased all the bad memories from the morning. Our tour guides were friendly, fun, courteous and SO knowledgeable! We toured some places located off sides streets just a little away from the touristy areas and discovered some amazing food. We got to try some authentic Sicilian pastries, wonderful cheeses, and other foods as well. In between the food we walked to some areas and learned some fascinating facts. To finish the night we had a WONDERFUL dinner. Another thing to mention is that my bf is gluten and lactose intolerant and they accommodated for him and the gluten free bread he tried that night was hands down the best gluten free bread ever. It was warm and fresh out of the oven. I just cannot recommend this tour enough. It was a beautiful way to end our trip to Italy.

Beautiful night in Rome
Riding a bike through the Eternal City as the sun set is one of my favorite memories of our time there. We started at the bike shop hopped on our bikes and took off! I will admit that it was a bit scary trying not to run into people in some of the busier areas. Our guide led us through the city, stopping to share information about the monuments. We learned so much. She made Rome come alive for us with her excitement for her hometown. We ended the night with a great pizza. I only wish our guide could have shared dinner with us! We also thought we'd be seeing the Coliseum as we ate, but it was not in view from inside the restaurant. We also ran into bad luck after dinner. The trains were already closed because of the late hour! We had to hire a car back to our hotel. Seeing Rome at night was exhilarating! There's just something about seeing it all lit up. Thank you Sarah for the great time! You are an awesome host!
Rome by Night: Pizza & Bike
Wonderful, Multi-course meal with wine
My niece and I just had the pleasure of spending a lovely evening with Max and his girlfriend. They picked us up at the train station, and took us to his family home, where they cooked us a sumptuous home-cooked, chef-style meal paired expertly with the most delicious Italian wines. Max and his girlfriend were everything you could hope for in hosts: kind, attentive, generous, excellent conversationalists, and, of course, great cooks! We were extremely pleased with the experience and highly recommend you reach out to Max when you are in Rome next. He even has a YouTube channel for his music! After a delightful evening, Max even drove us back to our hotel. Truly a magical night!

Lovely, lovely, lovely!!!
So happy to have found this experience! The sweet treats were amazing, but the tour and all the insider information we got, was even better! This was the first thing we did while in Rome and I’m so glad, now we have a staring point and some great recommendations on things to try and places to go back and explore more. Having these guys as guides felt like we were meeting up with some old friends and catching up rather then being lead around by strangers. They are passionate and love what they are doing and it absolutely shows. We can’t wait to come back and do one of the other tours Roma Eat (check out their website) provides! Thank you so much!

Fantastic Meal and Evening
Max and his girlfriend were extremely warm and accommodating to my friend and I. Max picked us up and dropped us off at the metro and was right on time. The food was very authentic and nothing short of spectacular. Warning though, there’s a lot of courses and the portions are hearty so pace yourself so you can enjoy everything! The chicken dish, pollo alla cacciatore, was the highlight of the meal. Also, Max’s choice of wine was a fantastic red and we made it through two bottles throughout dinner. These are great people with great stories and food! Can’t recommend dinner at Max’s highly enough. Grazie from Jacob and Claudia!

A Treasure!!
This was an AMAZING experience. The guide was so knowledgeable and a genuinely nice person! They take us to hand picked places mostly family run and have been around for almost 80-90 years and are authentic to what they are doing. We did a bit of cheese tasting, meat, Olive oil tasting (so good), local jams (got four flavours for myself and it was home made), bruschetta, pizza, lunch with some really nice red wine and gelato . Every single stop was totally worth it. If you are in Rome and if you are a foodie you HAVE to take this tour! Thank you for the incredible food journey!!

Amazing experience!
Tiramisù in a cup of chocolate: AMAZING” I am a tiramisù lover and the small tiramisù served in a cup of chocolate is something I will not forget! Almost two hours tasting different sweets and listening to really interesting and funny stories about Rome. I appreciated that the guide, Selene, is a real local and also an archeologist (but she said all the team are archeologist). We were in a relatively small group, with 5 other people, and the organization was perfect. Selene took care of every aspect and all the tastings were well organized

5 star experience, said by an Italian
What a real Roman experience. I did this experience with foreign friends (I am Italian) and I have to say that these guys knows what they do. Considering how much amazing food you eat, this experience worth the money you pay. But if you also consider all the hidden gems that you discover during the tour, all the historical information about Rome and the traditions of the people leaving here… well, this tour really goes beyond expectations.
I will try more experiences with Roma Eat when back in town, this is sure.

Incredible... A MUST!!!
This experience was incredible -- I just loved it! I'm back home and haven’t stopped raving about this experience yet. I visited Rome many times since and just started doing these experiences to try something new and this one was so worth it. We learned, ate and laughed so much, it was just the most perfect day. The hosts were extremely knowledgeable, friendly and engaging. I think this experience should be on every Rome visitor’s to do list. I highly recommend this and can’t wait to do it again!

Excellent
“A family tour” I joined the tour with my wife and two kids. Considering the price, that is not too high compared to other tours I did, we decided to book the food also for the kids (9 and 4 years old) even if they usually do not eat that much, and… It ended up with them eating also our food!!! Everything was superb, but the tiramisù was the best. Especially because… You will eat it in one bite (no spoiler, but there is a surprise on how it is served). One hour and half of pure pleasure

We have been to Rome numerous times and after seeing just about all of the historical sites we were looking for a different experience. Well, the Savor Italy Tours with Holly is definitely the thing you have to do.
Aside from eating your way through some of the best establishments Rome has to offer, you get the pleasure of Holly who without a doubt is a wealth of knowledge and is just charming. You definitely well not be disappointed or leave being starved.

Awesome, fulfilled tour.
I did this tour with my wife and two teenage sons and we had the best time. Ericka our host was so much fun and interesting. We ate and learnt about the foods from all regions of Italy and visited great places in Rome where we tasted cheeses, canoli, Michelin star pasta, pizza and tiramisu. And to top it all off we made a whole bunch of new friends from the USA and Israel. Do yourself a favour and book one of these unforgettable tours. Ciao to Ericka xx.

Wonderful Team!!!
I would recommend RomaEat to anyone traveling to Rome- especially first timers! Our tour guide made my first visit to Rome a great experience. I felt it was more of an authentic local experience. We ate amazing foods and met wonderful people. Another plus - the groups are kept small. Making for an overall better experience. Thank you RomaEat for a wonderful time! I'm back in the states but dreaming of Roma!! :)
