We were guided by David, who knows the city very well both to live in it and its history. The tour was really interesting and immediately immersed us in the city and directed us to places not to be missed. With the bonus of good anecdotes or little more unusual. It was perfect !

An excellent, informative and enjoyable personal tour of Balogna

A good tour visiting places that were interesting with sufficient information provided without being overwhelming. Alessandro was very personable and a good guide. He was very informative and helpful in explaining how to get to places to revisit after the tour or to additional places we may wish to visit. He was also very considerate of my needs as I walk with a stick and I am a little unsteady and slow. Overall an excellent tour.

Informative first tour of the city

Gael is a good guide. He was patient waiting for us (we were late), and with answering all our questions. Even though it was raining, we managed to get to most of the nice spots in Bologna. He was able to provide insight not found in online articles. He also helped us get tickets to the opera - an unforgettable experience! Plus, pointing us to the best gelato in Bologna :) While we had to cut short the tour due to bad weather, we were quite happy with Gael for providing an informative walk-through of this lovely city. Many thanks to all!
