I definitely would recommend this experience. I was able to taste things that I probably wouldn't have tried if I was just going around myself. The value is perfectly reasonable, and it's so nice to be able to just hand the waiter the voucher and not have to do anything else. Everything I had was very tasty and although smaller portion sizes, I was very full after using all the vouchers (within the span of 5 hours, on a day trip). The cold cuts platter with a full glass of wine and the parmigiano sample with balsamic were especially exceptional. It was just such a pleasure to be able to tour around Bologna, walking around and stopping to try different Italian foods and snacks. I would absolutely suggest doing this food tour, which you can completely moderate to your own pace as the vouchers don't expire.

Jihene was an excellent tour guide who helped us appreciate the local dishes in Parma. We thoroughly enjoyed all the food served from the Parma ham to the tortellini and gelato. On top of this, Jihene also took us around the city and shared the interesting culture and history of Parma.

very high tower and many steps it seems to never arrive, but in the end a spiritual satisfaction to feel so high and look at the beauty of bologna from above

The view of the city from above is amazing!!! A bit tiring but absolutely doable.

Excellent. Every city should have such a tour, it's the best way to explore.
