The tour guide for our Walking Tour was excellent I'm sorry that I didn't catch her name. She did the tour in both English and Italian and she moved us along, even though it was pretty cold. I have been to Bologna many times, but never took a tour. I saw things I had never seen before. I especially enjoyed the Anatomy Room in the original University of Bologna the first University in Europe and the amazing law library in the Archigennasio. From there we went to the Church of Santa Maria della Vita and saw the incredible terracotta statues of Niccolo dell'Arca. Incredible images of Mary the mother of Jesus and Mary Magdalene and others standing over the body of Jesus laid in the tomb. I have never seen such expressions of pain and grief on statues before. They are masterpieces We then got to the Basilica of San Petronio in time to see the meridian line displaying the sun at its highest point in the sky on the floor of the Basilica. The whole tour was excellent and I highly recommend it!
Our guide was extremely knowledgable and shared many tidbits of information not found in a guidebook or history book. Well worth the the time

This walking tour was led by a very informative English speaking guide. The pace was good and we were taken into places we might not have discovered by ourselves. The tour content took us into areas we could revisit later.

I loved this tour. The tour guide was a local and was very knowledgeable. You could tell she was proud of Bologna and truly loved her city. It was one of my favorite things we did in all of Italy. I highly recommend the tour. The only tip I have is to bring cover ups for your arms and legs. I wasn't aware we were going into a church during the tour and missed out on that part because I didn't have anything to cover my shoulders and legs. My husband wore a tank top and also could not go in. You can buy a cover up for one Euro in the church, but we just arrived and didn't have any cash on us.
very interesting tour and we seemed to explore everywhere! brilliant value and a great guide highly recommend

We all really enjoyed our Tour - Roberta was superb - very knowledgeable
This was an excellent introduction to Bologna. Knowledgeable and clear guide.
An excellent and interesting tour which will give you more information about the places you have seen/will see more of in Bologna. Particularly interesting was the tour of San Petronio church where the guide pointed out the old sundial and also the Modena fresco which features Mohammed in hell and I later saw the painting Modena based this on, or vice-versa, on the 1st floor of Bologna art gallery. Needless to say, the usual mad and devout morons from the religion of peace' have tried to attack this church and destroy this fresco - hence the heavy and constant police/army presence outside. The guide was great and she admitted to us at the end that this was her first tour in English - but apart from some mispronunciations, the English was adequate for everyone to understand. Highly recommended.
Our guide was friendly, informative and extremely knowledgeable. The 2 hours was a pleasant stroll around Bologna covering the highlights of the city. I would thoroughly recommend this walking tour.
We loved the Bologna tour. Frederico was a very informative guide. The tour is very interesting, we got to know the history of the city and the best sightseeings.
Excellent tour guide. The tour was really good but I felt sorry for our excellent guide - 21 people were booked on the tour so it was a big group and then she discovered 3 people did not speak English so she had to translate everything for them. This must have been difficult - it took her time to do this but she was charming at all times. Saw the main sights and enjoyed learning from the guide.
Great guide - knowedgeable and enthusiastic - clearly enjoyed what she was going. Our tour was in both English and Italian so it felt very authentic. Only downside was the rain which didn't dampen her spirits!
The walking tour was wonderful introduction to Bologna. Would recommend to get your bearings and see the ancient university and city. Wonderful tour wonderful town.
