My whole family (two children, two adults) absolutely loved this tour and our fabulous tour guide! She was charming, so knowledgeable, and clearly very proud of Bologna's wonderful food heritage. We also learned a great deal, and everyone we encountered along the way couldn't have been more helpful and interested in telling us about what they produced. We would definitely book another tour with them - it was my children's favourite activity, so the tour very much accommodated for a wide-ranging crowd. Thanks so much!

Our guide was fantastic. We learned a lot about the city, in addition to enjoying delicious pizza and gelato. We never felt rushed and our guide answered all of our questions. She even recommended a great restaurant for dinner later. I would highly recommend this tour.

We were so lucky. There were just two of us on this tour and everything was personal and perfect. We loved all of the food explanations and the pizza and gelato were the best we have ever had.
