Bologna: Red Bus City Tour and Local Food Tasting
- Duration: 1 day
- Optional audio guide
Margarita was an exceptional guide, providing potted histories and interesting and funny stories about all the sites. She went at our pace, answering all our questions, and we gained a good insight into the amazingly complicated history of this lovely town. She spoke excellent English and the 2 hour tour went by far too quickly! If you can, get onto this tour. We went on our first day in Bologna and were able to pick places from our tour that we wanted to see again. Very useful!
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.
Tour was fantastic, informative with good stories and some humour. Saw things we would've otherwise missed. Great two hours. Only slight disappointment was that the tour was advertised as including a voucher for gelato tasting but we didn't get this. Still worth it though!
We had a private tour. Our guide was just great, extremely knowledgeable and caring; she had time for us and never rushed us. We learnt a lot and had a great time with her. We highly recommend.
While our guide was very good, I thought my booking was for an English speaking tour and it turned out to be bilingual which meant a lot of time standing around waiting for the translation.
