Just what we wanted

We are here in Bologna for 3 months. We wanted a tour to orient us to good restaurants, points of interest, things to do while we are here, places to go and general information. Not only did our guide Benedette fun and enjoyable, but she was a great guide providing us with a great tour of the city. Ask for her and you won't be disappointed. She also does food tours which I expect to also be great!

Lorenza met my every request and need. I wanted a tour focused on medieval life, culture and history. No church and no art. She kept my full attention for the entire 6 hours!

Elizabeth was very knowledgeable, helpful, and easy to understand. She made us want to stay in Bologna much longer than we planned.

Perfect ! Friendly and very professional. Excellent moment of relaxation and active pleasure

The guide was very lively. We saw everything in the center. It never got boring.
