    Mattia was our tour guide and he was wonderful! We loved the experience. The food was all fantastic and going with a local with so much knowledge was amazing. The osteria was a cool experience as well. It was great to learn about history while exploring the culinary scene. Definitely a great way to spend 4 hours. Get ready for A LOT of food.

    We really enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide, Matteo, was very knowledgeable on both the history of Bologna, and the food we tried. It was excellent value for money. We got a pastry to start, a selection of meats and parmesan with wine, followed by a great lunch and gelato after. We also got to try 3 different ages of balsamic vinegar. Highly recommend this tour.

    Our guide, Mattie, was fantastic, fun and knowledgeable. Take a tour with him! I loved the small group from all over the world. My husband’s favorite part was the pre-lunch tasting of various meats at the wine bar. I especially loved the fantastic wine shop with the balsamic vinegar tasting and getting to know the area better. Highly recommend!

    A true taste of Bologna

    One of the most interesting parts of the tour was seeing Tortellini being made fresh, by hand, by local women with nonchalant skill. Their dexterity was amazing. Our host, Gabriele, was excellent and had detailed knowledge, and he really did take us to some of the best places. I highly recommend the experience.

    Great tour guide (Matthew and his assistant Caterina). They were very knowledgeable, fun and informative. Good mix of history and great food tastings. Matthew made sure to accommodate my food preferences. All in all a great way to learn the food and culture of Bologna

    Had a great time on the tour with my wife. Tour lasted 3 hours and we were given slot of things to try. We skipped breakfast thinking we’d be eating a high volume of food, so was a little hungry but the overall amount of food was good.

    Eat and sightsee. Great time.

    There is much to see and taste in Bologna, and Raffaella was knowledgeable and friendly. In between eating I’ve learnt a lot about the history and culture of Bologna. Highly recommended.

    An amazing gastronomical experience!

    I am very glad to have gone on this tour because it was just superb. Our guide Mattia took us around Bologna to see some of its most amazing sights but most importantly, savour the town's most delicious food, all of which were authentic to the region and wouldn't probably be known to tourists. We had a really amazing time and it was truly an amazing gastronomical experience!

    Bree arrived in balogna and isadora net us. The first place we went to was a coffee shop and we had croissants that were amazing we then got swept off to at least six other places and had a variety of food traditional. While walking on the cobblestone streets she shared a bit of history for us we also had homemade pasta visited a place where they made tortellini by hand we also went to a Parmesan store and also a balsamic vinegar tasting not to mention a traditional pasta Rea pub where we had our sparkling red wine and a very good cake that was amazing to end our tour was gelato. We can’t say enough good things about this tour it was amazing!!
