Daniella is a foodie's dream tour guide! She's not only knowledgeable about the foods you sample and their histories, she is also very knowledgeable about the city and its history. She's fun, sweet and very interesting. She loves food and is happy to discuss it with you throughout the tour and she'll even send you a list of her favorite restaurants and shops in Rome as well as personal recipes. Every sample that we tried was delicious and we were grateful that it was a walking tour as we were stuffed by the end. We cannot express how much we loved Daniella and this tour. It was certainly a highlight of our trip.
