I attended this by myself as my husband was working. I do not speak Italian, the translator walked from the small bus to my hotel, spoke beautiful English and was very welcoming. The group included another couple and five girls from London traveling together. He introduced us all to each other and encouraged interaction which was fun. We saw the cheese being made, the proscuitto process and learned how the balsamic is made and why some is called gold. We tasted an abundance of everything and were offered the opportunity to buys products. The guide kindly told me that I was not allowed to bring back the proscuitto to the US. Then we went to an amazing lunch. It was four courses of all of the foods of Bologna and their local wine. During lunch I mentioned that I was having trouble finding reservations for dinner as there was a big show in town. Our guide, Antonia, called a friend that owned a great restaurant near our hotel where we were treated like royalty. The owner was standing there waiting for us and brought some tastes of things while he opened our wine. We could not have been happier. This tour will make you feel like you have a family member bringing you to his local farms and factories to share his heritage. At no point did I feel alone, the tour was fun. I would highly recommend this tour whether you are with a group or on your own.
I am very glad I chose this tour! Andrea Blasi was fenomenal! He and the driver picked me up from my hotel promptly and on time! From the get go, Andrea was extremely attentive and very knowledgable of all the places we were going to visit. He explained to me, in detailed, everything I needed to know and answered all my curiosities! This is a tour you must do! Grazie Andrea and Olga for an amazing experience!
