Tour was well designed with great mix of food, history, walking, drink. Guide was wonderful and her knowledge of the city's food culture and English was outstanding.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Bologna food tour. Our guide, Bernaditte, was very knowledgeable of the area and there were no communication problems. We had coffee and a sweet treat to start our tour and then headed to the local Mercato where we had samples from various vendors, to include cheese, mortadella, salumi, and pasta. After the market we walked to several different places where we had wine, pasta and another sweet treat. The food was delicious and very filling. Would highly recommend this tour as an introduction to the wonderful food of Bologna.
