It was fun to learn about Bologna on this tour amd we really enjoy most of the places we tasted some of the local delicacies. I will say it tries to be more mix of a walking tour and a tasting so if go in expecting one pr the other, it may fall short of your expectations.

The information about food was top-notch. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. I returned next day to some of our excellent stops. However, there were a couple of stops that seemed like they weren't expecting us, and we had to end quickly because another tour was waiting for our headsets.

This was an amazing tour. Virna was an amazing tour guide and was so knowledgeable about the city, not just food. We were in Bologna for a really short time and knew it was a foodie hotspot but we didn’t even know where to start! On this tour we got to taste things we never would have even known about and Virna gave us lots of tips for other places to try. It’s well worth the money.
