      e sat in the meeting area for 1 hour waiting for the guide. I called the number on the booking and it went to an answering machine. I also sent a text message and the did not answer for over an hour. Was told guide was there at the meeting spot on time. If he was at the meeting place as they claim he made no attempt whatsover to find us. Also if he was there no sign indicating the tour as said on ticket. I believe this tour is a scam, do not book it. They are refusing to refund my money.

      Our guide, charlie was very knowledgeable about the spots we saw. She was also very sweet and funny. However, when we got to the restaurant, they were clearly not waiting for us,, so it passed some time while they fixed up something at the restaurant and we we able to start. The class was also nice

      I would not recommend this tour because this was poorly organized and the contents were not up to the tour description.
      One of the worst parts was that it was once cancelled after 9PM previous day of the tour.
      They asked me to reschedule it last minute. Then when I agreed with the new timing suggested by them, the guide was late like 20 minutes.
      As tourists, we are paying money for every minute in Rome, but the guide or the company did not seem to be aware of this.
      Walking tour was fun and educative, and the guide was nice.

      However, the cooking class was again not very good. We had to wait for like one hour in total because the restaurant was busy and the cook who would teach us was busy, too.
      We made pasta (very quickly) but sauce was prepared by the cook. The guide promised us to send the recipes, but they never arrived.
      What we leaned was "how to mix egg and flour and cut the dough to make pasta" and "how to put chopped tomato on toast to make bruschetta"....well, I don't know about what tourists are like in Italy, but in my case, I kind of know these things. Putting tomato was not cooking, either.

      All in all "authentic Italian cooking class" was an overstatement. We ate Tiramisu, but we did not make it either.

      Finally, the tour description said we will end somewhere near the Colloseo, but the guide left us just in front of the restaurant, which was like 30 minutes walk from the Colloseo.
      I would not mind saying good-bye there. Not at all.
      But if this was as planned, the tour description should be more accurate.

      All in all, it was far from what we had expected from the tour description.
      I have joined cooking classes in various countries, but this was the worst.

      Way too expensive considering what we get (and the time we lost).

      This was my first visit to Italy, and this tour even deteriorated my impressions about Italy and Rome.
      Everything is very expensive, and the quality is not up to the cost.

      We were looking to cram a lot of Rome into a 3 day trip and this was perfect for our first day. The walking tour got us a little more acquainted with the area with some excellent knowledge about the history. Plus, it ends in a pasta class which was a must do for us. Our tour guide, Cecelia, was super knowledgeable, relatable, and just fun to walk around with. Our pasta chef was definitely authentic. He only spoke Italian so our tour guide translated for us while snapping pics of us with our camera. Don't skip this tour. It was well worth the money!

      We were so happy to have discovered this tour. It was a great way to get acclimated to Rome in preparation for our upcoming adventures over the next few days. Our guide was informative, patient with our questions and helpful with picture taking opportunities. The cooking class took place in the kitchen of an operating restaurant and at first I was worried that we were a bit obtrusive on their work,. Very quickly however, I realized that the chef couldn't be slowed down or held up by a few assisted pasta orders. We enjoyed our meal and conversation about music with our guide. I would suggest this tour to anyone looking to pair some delicious food with their walking tour.

      Our tour guide, Sara, was so knowledgeable about the sites we visited. She was enjoyable and it was very lovely to spend the afternoon with her. We took our 12 year old daughter on this tour and I would recommend it for any family.

      We had a wonderful tour guide who showed us Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, and a few other sites of interest. She had wonderful information for us. We finished the tour by making pasta from scratch. The cooking instructor had a wonderful sense of humor and did a great job of making the class fun. The tasting of the pasta was delicious!!! For dessert we had Tiramisu which was out of this world. I would highly recommend this tour!!!

      The walking tour was great! Nina showed us historical monuments that I did not think I would have
      Time or the opportunity to see while in Rome. The cooking class was fun, relaxed, and I learned how
      easy it is to make pasta from scratch. Our guide Nina was enthusiastic and helpful! Definitely recommend this tour!
