    Had a phenomenal time with him in Bologna. The man’s knowledge of the history of the city was amazing. The tour was never bland or boring. He always kept it fun and entertaining. He left it up to us how much of the tour would be food based and history based. We got a lot of both. The food spots were delicious. Make sure you make him take you for gelato (he’s even got a spreadsheet on what gelato spots are best in town, the guys an expert) I highly recommend the tour. I knew nothing about Bologna and now it is one of my favorite spots on earth

    Claudio did a lot of planning to make sure we saw all the important sights in Bologna in 4 hours. The whole tour was well paced and we genuinely felt like we know the city after 4 hours. Thank you Claudio for a delightful afternoon. By the way, the restaurant was excellent.

    Our guide Antonia was like a very knowledgeable friend showing us the best of Bologna and revealing the history, legends and secrets. It was a great introduction to Bologna and helped us understand a bit more of the city, its people and culture. Antonia gave us great tips on where to buy and eat the great food the city is so famous for.
