Latest reviews from our guests

    Claudio was by far the nicest tour guide we've had in our 8 days of exploring Italy and all of them have been lovely people! He was extremely accommodating and showed us the highlights of Bologna and explained a lot of the area's history. He's a very talented musician so we left not only with wonderful memories of Bologna but also with beautiful music we can listen to at home via his band's website (oceanina.com). We've been listening to it on the train rides to other cities and its perfect background for the beautiful Italian countryside! We spent less than 24 hours in Bologna but between Mattia and his Delicious Food tour and Claudio with his private Kickstarter tour, we felt we saw all the important sites and experiences the best the city has to offer!

    Our guide Claudio was awesome. He was VERY flexible to what we wanted to see and do. I would recommend him to anyone. I wish we could take him to Florence so he could be our guide.

    Not only was he good but he was so flexible about what we wanted to see. At any given moment we wanted to go off and see something, he was not rigid, he was willing to be flexible and make the experience about what us.

    Gabriele was a great guide, he was informative, warm and welcoming. He gave a good overview of the city and the history, the restaurants were great and the food delicious. He took the time to give me tips for the rest of my stay and provided excellent restaurant reconditions.
