Elena was an excellent guide. Not only very knowledgeable, but friendly and attentive. She went out of her way to get us some extra tastings beyond what we had booked in the market - obviously through her good relationships with vendors - and explained Bologna culture and food as we went along. I loved the market tour and wandering through the ancient centre, visiting famous food shops and hearing about the high standards to get certification of certain foods. She was enthusiastic and warm, but let us decide how much time we wanted in each place. It was a hot day and she took care to have us in the shade of air con where possible. The pizza was superb! Gelato was also very good. Thank you!

The tour was interesting and selected tastings were really great. Huge thanks for that pizza place :) What was missing for me personally is a little bit more information about local food culture and food history in general.
