Everything was grand! Chaira, our guide, was fun and informative and passionate about food in Bologna! We thought the amount of food offered at the tastings was more than substantial, in fact, more than we had anticipated. We enjoyed everywhere Chiara took us.
Naima, our tour guide, was great! Funny and knowledgeable. We learned quite a bit about the history behind the food and got to taste the local flavor. For true foodies like us, a couple of suggestions: One is to provide us with info in the beginning of the tour as to places we will be visiting and why so we know what to expect and can pace ourselves. And two - For example at the pasta factory, it would have been an even greater experience if we were able to have a small taste of different things instead of having just one big plate of one dish per person. This would have allowed us to sample a assortment of the real Bolognese specialties - tortellinis, Lasagna, and tagliatelle with Bolognese ragu, etc. - in one seating. Overall a wonderful experience for anyone who is a foodie and want to understand and learn history’s effect on the food culture of Bologna..
