An entertaining tour for the open-minded traveler!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2013

What a great tour. The guide Giacomo was very knowledgable and obviously proud of his city. He tied in the old seedy, secret part of the history, with the social, religious and scientific development of the city. It was truely worthwhile paying for the private tour.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better February 2012

It is impossible to submit a review of this tour. We booked two tours for the day, but the guide did not turn up for our first tour, the Classical Bologna tour, and when we called the company they said they had no record of our booking for the morning tour, just the afternoon tour. When the guide turned up for the afternoon tour he basically gave us the morning tour. Which although excellent was cut short. So having paid for 6 hours worth of tours, we ended up with about 2 1/2 hours.

Viator was very prompt in refunding our money for the tour which never eventuated. We have used Viator extensively and have never encountered a problem before, so it was pleasing to discover when an issue occurs the refund was prompt.
