What people are saying about Modena

Excellent tour. It was a private tour, and we could move along at our own pace. Bel was our driver and guide. Extremely helpful, very knowledgable. Take a private tour if you can. It is worth every cent we paid for. So much so that we cancelled one of those big group tours, and had Bel again to bring us to Cinque Terre. Once again, she did not fail us. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Amazing tour! We didn't have to plan a thing, everything was prearranged. We enjoyed wine tasting, Parmesan cheese tour, and a balsamic vinegar tour. Our guide was amazing and super helpful!
