Latest reviews from our guests

    Everyone should book a tour with Elisa when visiting bologna! She was so so knowledgeable and showed us things we would have completely missed by ourselves. She was one of the best and nicest tour guides we have had during our trip to Italy so far! It would be a mistake not to book a tour with her for your next visit!

    Gabriel’s was a fantastic tour guide! He showed us so many highlights of Bologna, and he also made sure to take us everywhere we wanted to go. He was extremely knowledgeable and engaging, and he answered all of our questions. We are American, and his English was excellent! He also gave us great recommendations for places to eat, things to do, etc. At the end of our tour, he walked us to a restaurant we had seen earlier that we wanted to go to. I highly recommend this private tour with Gabriele!

    Miana was excellent, she showed us around the parts of Bologna that we would definitely have missed without her. She also covered the famous landmarks and told us the history of the city. Miana made sure that the tour fitted around us - stopping for coffee when we liked and helping us book somewhere for lunch which we really appreciated.
