We were so fortunate to have our fantasic gude, Cecelia, all to ourselves for this charming, informative walking tour. We visited the open markets, ate cheese, breads, and mouth-watering carpaccio, saw the oldest wine store in all of Bologna, the chocolatiers, and made an unscheduled (and incredibly informative) dash through St. Dominic's because we had expressed our interest in seeing it, too. Such fun!

Balda, our tour guide, was super! We could not have asked for a better tour. We had read many reviews that rated this tour highly, but complained that it was not quite the foodie tour they had expected. Well, for us it was a wonderful foodie tour - we saw all that we were promised, and tasted wonderful chocolate, cheese, meats, and wine. On top of this, we were also given a historical overview of the major sights in the Bologna city center.

Luca was simply put- wonderful. He was most kind to my sister who needs to rest often. His knowledge and pride in Bologna was so obvious. Luca is a VERY fine representative of Bologna and Viator. We were just delighted;it was grand fun.

This tour was one of the highlights of our two week vacation in Switserland and Italy. The tour guide exceeded our expecations and his knowledge of the subjects was the most fun part of the tour! We had to bring back samples of everything we sampled and I am happy to say the parmasian and vinigar made it through customs. My wife lived in Italy, but we somehow missed Bologna each time we took a trip aournd the country. I strongly recommend this tour to a novice or experienced traveller.

Fantastic tour. Our guide Catica ( ?) was very informative, welcoming and easy company. One of the highlights of Bologna, I would thoroughly recommend taking this tour which at first glance seems expensive. Money well spent.

Gloria met us at Neptune's Fountain and took us for a predominantly historic tour of Bologna which is what we had asked for. This, of course included food and we ended having a delicious gourmet tasting. She was friendly and informative and obviously loved her town. We do too and would visit again if we were in Italy.

Our guide, Mr Alberto, was fabulous and so knowledgeable. We arrived when it had just snowed and he took us on our local walk via the many porticos in Bologna. The library and university were so interesting and the local restaurant for lunch were great.
