I loved this tour! I was a little late meeting the host but they were very accommodating to meet me later to give me the materials. It is great because you can make it as short or as long as you want. The vouchers they give you don't expire and they are plenty to feed one person and better to split between two meals times (if you're not super hungry) in my opinion. Even better would be to do it with a friend and just split each item if you're just wanting to try a little bit of everything. They also give you a map with a bunch of other food recommendation spots and sights to see with the best paths mapped out. There are even some audios that you can listen to about those places. Overall, the value that you get for the price is very fair. They give you enough things to do and information to last you awhile.

Received a packet of vouchers for a selection of food items across the centre. I used them across the two days I was in Bologna - also would have been possible to do all of them in one day. Let me sample some items I would not have thought to purchase on my own. Shop owners were helpful and friendly when I presented the voucher, although the coffee voucher on the main square only would let you drink the coffee inside or as takeaway. Recommend if you can't fit in a guided food tour of Bologna as a decent substitute.

Overall a nice activity. We visited some places already before getting the vouchers, some are basic cafes or ice cream shops, wouldn’t rate it as something super exciting. But the parmeggano and balsamico tasting was great and definitely something we wouldn’t have done without the vouchers. Getting the vouchers and meeting the guides was very easy.
