“Tasting” is just a fried bologna sandwich and a scoop of ice cream. It wasn’t bad, but I was expecting more from a “tasting.” Also, it was not clear that I was purchasing a tasting. I just wanted tickets to the tower. Instructions were not clear as to where to meet. Fortunately, I had no problems. I enjoyed the towers, but the tour could have been executed better.
Our guide, Margarita, wowed us with her knowledge and attention to detail. Her grasp of history and art astonished us, and she gave us the exact right amount and type of information to hold our interest. She's charming and she made us feel special. And when we asked, she gently steered us to a fantastic restaurant, thus making our first night in Bologna a perfect one.
Our guide was sweet Isidora. Although we took the tour after spending a few days of exploring Bolonga, she taught us so much. An endless source of knowledge, portrayed in the most charming way. Do not miss it. What can be better than superb food and history and culture? Long live "Bologna the fat" together with "Bologna the learned".
I am so lucky to get to this place with a Train tour. Very well organized, the amazing road to Basilica, and the biggest bonus is the view from the top hill from the San Luca! Must see! Very appreciated to the Tour Organization! Thanks a million! :)
We tasted many of the regional meats, pastas, cheeses and some wine. The guide was very knowledgeable about food and Bologna history. Only negative would be balsamic tasting which was shared and not hygienic.
