What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

Having the local perspective on this food tour with Touramisu was invaluable! When traveling, sometimes it’s hard to know which restaurants and shops to visit (or avoid) but this food tour covers all the Roman specialties including gelato, homemade pasta, and refreshing cocktails. Not only did I learn about Roman food and drink options, but I also enjoyed the money-saving tips, the tour’s witty approach to dining as well as learning about the faux pas. I also had a great time sightseeing too! All of the restaurants and shops are near well-known attractions like the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps. If you can, finish your tour at the rooftop bar for an unforgettable view of Rome’s skyline!  Danielle Desir

What if I don't know my travel dates yet?

This would be a problem with EVERY other food tour on the market, but lucky for you, there’s no need to pre-book a Touramisu Food Tour.

Be spontaneous if that’s your style. Our instant download means you can explore on a moment’s notice.

Lousy weather?

No problem.

Change of plans?

No problem

There are no cancellation fees.

Ever.

Will the tour work on my device?

The tour is a downloadable PDF file that can be viewed on any device.

Desktop or Mac.

Phone or tablet.

Android or Apple.

Choose the 4:3 standard PDF (best for tablets) or the 16:9 landscape (best for phones). Both versions are included with your purchase.

Will I have to pay expensive roaming fees to access the tour?

Absolutely not. Unlike a lot of apps, the entire food tour can be downloaded to your device. Once you’ve downloaded it, you can view it without an internet connection.

(You can also choose to navigate using the optional custom Google map while connected to the internet if that’s your preference.)

Either way, it’s your choice.

How many people can take the tour together?

Again, it’s up to you.

(See the trend here?)

The tour works well for one, two, or more.

And unlike EVERY other food tour on the market, you only need to purchase ONE TOUR no matter how many people are in your group!

So the bigger your group, the bigger your savings!

Most of the tastings are meant to be enjoyed standing so there’s no need to worry about finding a table.

Some of the places you’ll be stopping at are quite small and, depending on the time of year, may be crowded. Expect to queue during busy times, and if you have a large group, it’s possible you may have to take turns going inside to order.

Do I have to take the tour at a specific day or time?

No. Most of the stops are open 7 days a week, with a few exceptions:

  • The butcher shop is closed on Thursdays and Sundays.
  • The gelateria is closed on Tuesdays during the fall/winter.
  • Most businesses in Italy are closed on December 25.
  • You should expect businesses throughout Rome to be closed in August, especially on the days surrounding the national holiday of Ferragosto on August 15.

You can take the tour anytime during normal business hours. In the fall and winter, the best start time is late morning, around 11:30 am. In the spring and summer, 1:00 pm is ideal.

How many places does the tour stop?

The tour takes you to 10 different stops; the majority each include at least one recommended tasting.

Since the tour takes place in the historic center, you can easily combine your sight seeing with your bite seeing.

Are there any washrooms on the tour route?

Yes. There are washrooms at the 1st, 3rd, 4th, and last stop of the tour.

Are you a socially responsible business?

Each of our self-guided tours is paired with a non-profit program working to fight hunger around the world. A portion of the profits for every ROME: Centro Storico tour is donated to the One Acre Fund to help end poverty and hunger.

That means that when you purchase a Touramisu Food Tour, you’re also creating meaningful change in the world. Because with every tour you purchase, you support a person in need.

 

Is it really risk-free?

Yep! We don’t want you to foot the bill unless you truly enjoy experiencing authentic Roman cuisine with a Touramisu Food Tour.

That’s why we have a 100% Risk-Free Money-Back Guarantee.

If you take the tour and are dissatisfied for any reason, email us within 7 days of completing the tour. Just send us a selfie taken at one of the food stops along with a little constructive feedback and we’ll give you a full refund.
