Highly recommend! Sarah did an amazing job taking us through Bologna‘s markets while explaining the origin and history of the regions food and wine. We ate at several places along the tour while she shopped for ham,, cheese and fruit. The best part was when she took us to a secret wine bar where we ate all of the delicious treats paired with an exquisite regional red wine!

Learned so much about the local food from Simone, who knew you could eat fresh tortellini before it is cooked and (IMHO) it's even better than after cooking! I was really surprised by the amount of food we had. I was expecting 1 or 2 bites of each thing, but there was way more food than we could eat! If you are planning on taking this trip you may want to skip or severely cut back on breakfast! A great experience in an amazing environment! Unfortunately the viator website doesn't seem to be uploading the photos I wanted to share.

Paolo was like an old family friend introducing us to his hometown. While this is certainly an excellent food tour, it’s also filled with cultural and historical interests. Paolo is humorous and extremely knowledgeable. Thanks Paolo!

Marco is the Best!

We had a marvelous time with Marco! He was fun and knowledgeable and made the afternoon special. He and my husband had lots in common so we had an especially good time enjoying his company. He gave us lots of tips for places to eat while we were in Bologna, and they were fabulous. Loved the family restaurant he recommended, and a bonus was he showed up at the restaurant while we were there. Made us feel very “family “ and was a memorable time. Thank you Marco!

We had a great stroll with our guide Mauro, and abbiamo mangiato and bevuto molte cose. That is, he introduced us to a number of local traditional foods (which is exactly what we had hoped for), wines and cool venues. He also related all other non food related information about the city. A great start to our stay (and he recommended some restaurants for dinner, one of which we ate at, which was delicious).

Guide went over food options so fast and in names of Italian dishes and didn’t leave time for questions and he kept talking about himself and his travels. Although half of the food choices were good. The price we paid was high for what we got.

Excellent food tour showcasing the traditional cuisines of Bologna. The guide was informative and hilarious. It was so nice to have a private tour in comparison to the large group tours, our experience felt much more personalized. The food was incredible, and we were stuffed after. Would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to sample the flavors of traditional bolognese foods.

Had a really fun time with our lovely tour guide Sarah, who really went above and beyond with the amazing food, tips and stories about the various places we were in or walked past. It was a really great introduction to the city and we got to try alot of dishes you would otherwise have missed (tigelle, that lovely little wine bar, rice cake). We had a really great time and can't wait to try out the traditional recipes which she was kind enough to share with us! A must do for the city!
