A great tour led by Andrea who could not have done any more to make it successful! In fact, he went above and beyond providing many tips which resulted in an even better trip to Bologna for us. He is extremely knowledgeable about all the destinations and Italy beyond.
The highlight for me was probably a once in a lifetime opportunity to drive a Ferrari 458 Spider on public roads - still buzzing!
We will use Viator again.

Great tour! Great guide. Originally booked the Ferrari, Lamborghini Ducati tour, but we were told it was sold out. We were offered this tour instead. My car loving son was a little disappointed but all of his disappointment vanished after his 40 minute drive in a Ferrari. It was country roads most of the way. I believe he drove up to 140mph at one point. Visiting the farms where Parmigiana, prosciutto, and balsamic vinegar are made was a highlight for me. It really makes you appreciate where your food comes from. I bought some cheese and balsamic vinegar to bring home. Prosciutto is not allowed through US customs so I could not buy that, but it was all delicious. The homemade pasta at our lunch stop was fantastic as well. I loved every aspect of this tour. Great driver, Isabella was our guide, and perfect day.

This was a day to remember and definitely one of the highlights of our trip. Our guide was amazing and so informative with a great sense of humour. All the factory visits were interesting and very enjoyable. The Ferrari drive was incredible and something I will remember for long time!

Very good tour. Impressed with the organization and the tour guide Andreas. Very informative and good fun tour. Be aware that driving a Ferrari in a small village is not the same as driving it on a circuit/racetrack.

This was a great tour. Our tour guy was very knowledgeable and very friendly. We loved every aspect of the tour: my husband's favor part was the Parmesan cheese and mine was the balsamic vinegar. Of course, the Ferrari test drive was amazing. We love all the food tasting and the gourmet lunch was delicious. We brought back with us some Parmesan cheese, bottles of balsamic vinegar and a piece of prosciutto. Unfortunately, when back in the US they threw away our prosciutto at the airport it's not allowed in the US. So if you buy some, eat it before back in the US. The only thing that I would change about the tour was the amount of time spent at the Ferrari museum - more time was needed. If you do the Ferrari test drive, it doesn't leave you that much time for the museum. Overall, we highly recommend this tour.

It is the first time that I spent some time in Bologna - four nights, as a solo traveler.
This tour was the highlight of my visit to the Bologna region.
I was picked up from very close to my hotel, in a spotlessly clean and new bus with a friendly driver - on time.
The vivacious, friendly and most knowledgeable guide, Tamara, who spoke excellent English - has an outstanding technical knowledge of the manufacturing processes of cheese, ham and balsamic vinegar!
The Ferrari Museum is a great tribute to a really outstanding man.
Lunch consisted of a large number of delightful local dishes, served efficiently with regional wines and capped by a unique local 40 Walnut liquor.
I have no hesitation in recommending this tour as a unique tour and excellent value for money.

This tour was excellent. We spent 10 hours of fun. It was the best tour ever!!! Th Italian food was great. Being able to see how they do the Parmesan cheese and prosciutto was great. Finally, it was the best to be able to drive a Ferrari. That tour is worth every penny. We drank wine, we ate, the company was great. We had an excellent guide Andrea. He was kind, funny and very knowledgeable. They came on time. The van was clean, the driver was very nice too. There is Wi-fi on board. It was excellent. My 2 girls and my wife said it was the best day. Highly highly highly recommended!!

If you're short on time and need to explore the Emilia-Romagna region, this is the perfect All-In-One day tour for you! Led by a knowledgeable local guide, the tour capsulized the essence of the regional food scene plus it included an added bonus.a stop at the magnificent Ferrari Museum. The food tasting tour included a local parmesan cheese factory, a multi-generation family-owned balsamic vinegar business, and a prosciutto factory owned and operated by a brother-sister team. It was fascinating to learn of their history and the evolution of their family-based businesses. We topped the day off with an incredible lunch at a family-owned restaurant nestled in the idyllic hills of Emilia-Romagna. I had the best homemade tortellini and Bolognese pasta. Needless to say, I wholeheartedly recommend this tour.

This was a wonderful tour. We myself, husband, and husband's sister were picked up by an air conditioned van. Max Martelli was our tour guide. Since our hotel was located on a small alleyway street, Max sent me an e-mail, and notified my hotel that they would pick us up at a Gelato Shop just up the street. Max was a very good guide, and gave us much history of the area. First, we saw the process of making parmesan cheese, and had a tasting. Second, we saw the process of making the prosciutto ham, again, with a tasting. Third, we learned about making balsamic vinegar, with a tasting. It was all fascinating and delicious. Then, we went on to Maranello to the Ferrari Museo. Some in our group also test drove a car. There were many photo opportunities, and Max was very knowledgeable. Finally, we went to a lovely restaurant for a delicious lunch. I would definitely recommend this tour. We had a fabulous time. Thank you so much.

Our favorite experience while in Italy. Masimo is amazing. He is a fantastic tour guide and made everyone comfortable. I simply cannot explain how much fun we had. Come hungry because you will eat some of the most amazing food all day. There is no shortage. My son took a spin in a Ferrari and it was a blast. Masimo went out of his way for every single member of the tour. My son is studying in Italy and he was kind enough to provide guidance and suggestions to ensure his stay was safe and enjoyable. The lunch we had was truly memorable. The food just kept coming. Plenty of wine. Anything you needed. The restaurant we were in also had a wedding so we were able to be part of a traditional Italian wedding reception and it was also fun to witness and see. You will not want to miss this tour. Take it and maybe even take it twice. Overall excellent experience and met so many new friends.

We were so impressed with this tour from pick up at our hotel til the drop off at the end of the day! We have not taken many tours as we tend to travel independently, but were very happy with the caliber of our tour guide, Andrea, his knowledge and outgoing, friendly personality. The visits to the parmigiano and proscuitto factories, the family owned balsamic business and the Ferrari museum were fun for both of us. The Ferrari test-drive was the highlight! The final stop was a delicious 5 or was it 6 course luncheon, amazing. We would never have had access to all that we saw that day if we hadn't taken this tour, would recommend it to anyone, a great day, worth every penny!

Excellent tour. Very good value for money.
We tasted good quality food at all three factories. The lunch was absolutely great, with a lot of good quality food and good wines.
The guide and also the driver were very careful with all of us and did a great job.

Worth every penny!

I am so glad that I booked this tour. I enjoyed the tour very much.
Communication with Viator was very efficient. I was picked up from my apartment at 7.15am. Our Guide, Max is a lovely guy and he did the tour and explanations in a clear and interesting way. The tours to the cheese factory, ham factory, balsamic vinegar factory was an eye-opener for me. I enjoyed it very much especially since i love these three products and to see how they are made is an experience. The ferrari museum was ok for me since i am not such a car fanatic but it was still very good to learn a bit of the history of ferrari.

The lunch was great!! the food was of good quality and portions are generous. Wine is good too.

overall, i strongly recommend doing this tour.
