The guide we had was amazing!! She was so knowledgeable and hospitable. My son and husband loved every minute of this trip and found it to be a great experience. Something they will always remember!
The tour was well worth the money and I would recommend it to anyone. Katerina was excellent and her knowledge of the Lamborghini factory as well as the entire history of the Italian luxury sports cars and history was impressive. I went on the tour with my son and Katerina facilitated a photograph with the famed driver Valentino Baboni, who happened to be at the test drive site. The restaurant where we had lunch had the BEST pasta anywhere in Italy where we dined including a Michelin star. I would highly recommend the tour!
Avoid the hassle of getting to Bologna and from factory to factory by yourself, this is a much better way! Caterina went out of her way to make this tour happen for me after a change of dates and I can't thank her enough for doing so. The Lamborghini and Pagani tours are everything I'd hoped they'd be, if you love Supercars you need to do this. Add in the opportunity to drive a Hurucan on the nearby roads no speed cameras and this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for most of us
Katerina was an awesome guide/facilitator of the tour. The lunch was exceptional and the Lamborghini tour was beyond the expectations of our family with our engineering student specifically wanting to see the assembly line. The test drive was totally worth the cost. Perhaps a section needs to be added to specifically accommodate vegetarians/those with food allergies for the lunch as it was unknown that the other family on the tour was vegetarian, unless they could have put this notation in a comments box. This tour was one of the highlights of our Italian vacation and we recommend it highly!
If you are mad about cars then you will love this tour with Katerina. She was an amazing host. Met us promptly at the agreed spot and explained about the extras this is where I need to tell you all that if you do NOT want the assembly line tour then tell her now as you will have to pay her at the end for this and lucky for us that we had the 150 Euros in cash with us!. Saying all this, the assembly line tour was really good value for money. The cookery class however is funny yet pointless as there is just not enough time to do it all, especially if like us you also had a group of people who did not book this part so got to enjoy extra food. But on the bonus side, we had not booked the Pagani tour and we got that as a bonus as the other group had booked it. The test drive in the Huracan was breath taking. Again be prepared to pay extra for this directly to drive centre.
Katerina spent the entire day with us and is extremely knowledgable about the cars, factories and the area. The stop for lunch would have been more enjoyable if we had more time as our cookery class took up half the lunch time allocated. Despite this we still had an amazing day. Thank you Katerina! xx
Really enjoyed our day out! It is pricey BUT worth it as it is a different type of tour and you are treated as a personal guest, by your tour leader who has a passion for her subject.
The tour is also a welcome change from the history based tours and cultural overload of a Venice trip.
Particularly enjoyed the pasta making which was hilarious, and the patience of our tutor should be recognised.
Our tour with Caterina to Ferrari, Lamborghini and Pagani was amazing. Nothing was a problem as she wished us to each of our destinations. Her knowledge and professionalism was well displayed all day. Lunch at a local restaurant was also a bright and wonderful inclusion.
We will recommend this tour to everyone as it's something you can't miss while you are in the area, especially if you are a supercar nut like our family. The service, passion and attention to detail offered by Caterina is second to none.
A must if you're a car fanatic plus, it's an easy day trip from Venice. Great access to both the Lamborghini and Pagani factories, expert tour guide, and a nice lunch make this a 5-star excursion.
We managed to squeeze this excellent excursion into our week-long visit of Venice. Both my husband I were surprised we could get to both the Lamborghini and Pagani factories and back to Venice in one day. Caterina was our personal tour guide for the entire day and took us to the Pagani and Lamborghini factories, a local and authentic lunch, and we even had time for my husband to drive a Huracan for a quick blast on the country roads.
Few things you should know: it's a full day, but it's surprising the number of boxes you check tours of both facilities, including the Lamborghini museum and the Pagani factory floor, time to shop for memorabilia, and no-wait access wherever you go. As well, Caterina is an ideal tour guide - she worked for years at both Lamborghini and Pagani as their in-house tour guide and knows their cars, history, details, and the people exceedingly well. Finally, we'd recommend paying the extra charge for the Lamborghini production line tour, and if you're up for a little speed, a test drive of the Lamborghini Huracan.
The tour was a little different from the description. The tour we had initially booked included a trip to the Lamborghini Museum followed by a Tortellini class and home made lunch. The class was not available on the day we wanted to go so Katerina Iessi, the local operator in Venice who works with Viator gave us a nice alternative. She substituted the Tortellini class with a trip the Pagani factory, which was a delight for all of us, especially for our son. Katerina drove us from Piazzale Roma, the bus station in Venice, to Motor Valley in a nice and comfortable vehicle. On the way she told us about Bologna as well. After getting to Motor Valley, we first visited the Lamborghini Museum for an hour, then we had lunch at a place across the street food is great in Italy pretty much everywhere, and then we visited the Pagani factory. The girl who gave the tour at Pagani was very good, and spoke very well. We were allowed to take as many pictures of the cars as we wanted, but understandably not of the assembly line. Pagani makes cars that are a blend of art and science, as you discover very quickly on your tour.
After the Pagani tour we went back to the Lamborghini Museum, and visited the gift shop. The gift shop is overpriced as your would expect just because everything has the Lamborghini logo on it.
Katerina then returned us safely back to Venice. We would highly recommend the Motor Valley Tour any variation of it if you like exotic cars. Katerina is a very nice lady and if you get an opportunity to tour with her, please do.
