5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

Bologna's history is not as self-evident as in some other tourist-destination cities in Italy, so having a good guide is especially important here. Gioco did a great job. Personable and considerate as well as deeply well-informed, he gave us a solid historical tour at the same time as we got to sample some wonderful food.

A superb overall guide to the history and of course the food of Bologna. Giacomo, our guide was extremely knowledgable and interesting, and even going to places we had been on our own the day before we learnt so much more. There was probably less about food than we were expecting, but that was fine, and tasting of gelato, chocolate and a superb antipasto lunch with wine rounded it off perfectly, recommended!
