This was an excellent guide experience by Fernanda - she was entertaining and informed throughout, great storytelling and it felt like a "real", local and authentic experience. Small group too. The food bites throughout were delicious and well-chosen, including the legendary Checchino Dal 1887 (seventh generation restaurant in the neighbourhood). This was among my most enjoyable experiences in Rome and I'd highly recommend it - especially suitable for return visitors to Rome looking for an off the beaten track experience. (You can book it on takewalks.com or devourtours.com).

Federico expertly led Devour tours Testaccio Food and Market Tour. From the very beginning Federico set the tone by drawing 7 of us together as a group.
Information was given about how Romans today go about their lives and also gave us a glimpse into the past. All information was relevant but not so much as to be overwhelming.
It is very clear that Federico has developed a good relationship with the vendors at the Pasticcieria, .Testaccio Market, restaurant and gelateria. We were warmly welcomed at all stops and provided with generous samples. Frederick provided us with interesting stories about the origins in the food and how has developed an now fits into Roman lives today.
Federico is a natural at leading this tour. His knowledge of and his enthusiasm and passion for Rome shine throughout the tour. We also received tips to help make informed food decisions during our stay.
Well paced tour. Arrive hungry! You won’t be disappointed.

Abbie was such a fun guide on this neighborhood tour. We really felt her passion for Italian food and the way of life in Rome. She did a great job of providing information not only about what we were eating, but the connections to the local establishments and the people that owned them. You'll leave full of food and with your curiosities satisfied! She is also the guide for the Trastevere food & wine tour, which I also highly recommend! Can't wait to see how Devour expands in Rome & beyond.

Ciao Victoria and Kylie! Grazie for your kind words and for joining us on TWO of our food tours during your trip to Rome! I had such a great time showing you around my favorite local spots—it's great to know that you appreciated getting to know the fabulous family-run establishments we work with. I can't wait to see you both back here to join us on our Rome Like a Local tour :) Un abbraccio forte! Abbie

On Sept. 13 I booked Devour’s Testaccio Rome: Food & Market Tour for Oct. 7th, 2022, paid $73.83. According to their website, they have 24 hours free cancellation. On Oct. 3rd, my plan changed, I emailed the company to cancel my tour. I made follow up emails with the company, they said they didn’t receive my cancellation email, refused to refund me. Several back and forth, no result. To me, $73.83 is not a big deal, but the company doesn’t honor their refund policy is a big deal. I want people to know this is how they do their business.

Dear 25yd, We are extremely sorry that you had to change your plans and were not able to enjoy Testaccio Rome: Food & Market Tour with us. After looking through our systems I was unable to find your initial email and the agent acting in your case followed our cancellation policy. With this being said, as you had contacted us at least 24 hours in advance a full refund will be issued. You should receive a separate email confirming your refund. I have additionally flagged your case to our training manager to review. If you have any further feedback or want to discuss your situation, please write to me at feedback@walks.org. Best, Sasha

A wonderful food tour in the very lovely and authentic Testaccio-neighbourhood. Manuela was a knowledgeable and very accommodating guide who oviously had an excellent relationship with all the vendors and restaurateurs we visited. We were a family of three generations, ranging in age from 10 to 87 and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Much recommended.

Manuela was our guide, and she is enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We had 8 in our group, and we met in the park as instructed, then walked to a pastry shop for pastry and espresso. After breakfast, we entered the market where we learned about the various foods and tasted them. There is A LOT of food on this tour! In August, some of the vendors were closed, but there was enough variety to keep us happy. We had a vegetarian on our tour, and there were some special offerings for her. After the market, we tasted pasta at a restaurant, and finished the tour with gelato at another spot. Manuela was terrific and the tour was a lot of fun. Come hungry!

We took this tour on Christmas Eve morning with our fabulous tour guide Abbie. Best tour we have ever been on and we have been on many all over Europe. Abbie was just a delight and so knowledgeable. Being American and knowing Abbie was also from American it was amazing her knowledge of the city, the restaurants we went to and loved hearing her speak Italian, just like a native. The food and wine we tasted was the best in the city and loved going to places that were true local and not just another tourist attraction. If you are visiting Rome, please take this tour, you will not regret it! We are hopeful to visit Rome again and see what other tours Abbie has to offer, or we will just have to do it again, can't say enough how much we enjoyed it. Happy New Years Abbie, thank you for a great Christmas Eve in Testaccio!

Buongiorno Simone and happy New Year's to you as well! I couldn't have asked for a better group to spend Christmas Eve with and I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed our festive tour around Testaccio. Our food and market tour in this neighborhood is really fantastic for anyone looking to experience authentic eateries in Rome and interact with locals and their businesses. I can't wait to see you all back here (potentially on our food and wine experience in Trastevere??) and thank you for lovely review. Best wishes, Abbie

I did this trip with extended family - children, teens and a grandparent. Everyone enjoyed it. The food and drink elements were really well chosen and Abbie, out tour guide, went out of her way to make her information relevant and accessible for everyone. I'm now planning a Devour tour in Seville - they really help you to get under the skin of a place.

Hello Alis! It was such a pleasure having you and your family on tour with me in Testaccio this week and so great to hear that the entire family enjoyed themselves :) We do our best to communicate the story of this wonderfully traditional Roman neighborhood through the food, drinks, and vendors that we choose to work with. I know my Devour Seville colleagues can't wait to have you along on a tour on your next trip! Best wishes, Abbie

This was easily one of our favorite activities while in Rome. Federico was absolutely amazing, we’ve taken 2 tours with him now that have both been so much fun. He’s so knowledgeable and it’s clear that he’s passionate about what he does. It was a pleasure to roam around Rome with a local and learn about the history and culture about Testaccio.

Our tour of the Testaccio, we loved exploring the local shops and market with Abbie. She was full of wonderful information and had a terrific rapport with owners of all the places we visited. Generous food tastings were delicious and i learned so much. Make sure you do this tour. Friends of ours also did devour tours in Spain and loved them too.

Jay! Grazie mille for your kind words and for joining me on our Testaccio neighborhood market tour. I don't think I've ever laughed so much with a group and it was truly a fantastic experience. I know our partner Sandro enjoyed it even more when he discovered how open your group was to trying his local products! I hope you can join us in Spain (Madrid, Barcelona, Seville or San Sebastian) in the future or in one of our other Devour cities :) Best wishes, Abbie
