This was an amazing tour. Virna was an amazing tour guide and was so knowledgeable about the city, not just food. We were in Bologna for a really short time and knew it was a foodie hotspot but we didn’t even know where to start! On this tour we got to taste things we never would have even known about and Virna gave us lots of tips for other places to try. It’s well worth the money.

We are a couple in their 30s. The girl who guided us was very nice and knowledgeable and the tour was fun and informative. As for the tastings, we ate a couple of snacks during the morning and a rich platter of cold cuts and cheeses at the end of the tour (all inclusive) so we were fully satisfied. I highly recommend

So much food, all the information you needed, lovely greeting by the company, great locations for food, great audio tour, was so happy with this experience. 100% recommended. You could do this in a few hours or even better use the whole day to enjoy it all properly! :)))

had a lovely morning seeing all the sites in historic Rea. I tried food, I would would not have otherwise known to pick. also got many recommendations for the rest of my stay!

Very nice tour guides and we’re very flexible, providing us a tour on Easter Sunday because it was our only time in town!
