Andrea, our young guide, is a boy who knows how to communicate very well. He knows Bologna and knows how to explain it to you without getting bored ... he is nice and easygoing ... he also makes himself available at the end of the tour for advice and questions ... if he happens to you, you are in good hands! It would also have been nice to set up a slightly more extensive discussion on the various churches / artistic notes ... we actually didn't ask for it ...

Benedetta was the perfect guide!

We booked the day before, within 1 hour Benedetta emailed us with suggestions for the tour and asked us what we wanted to do. She was friendly and knowledgeable, really knew the city. We completely changed what we wanted to see that morning, Benedetta was happy to accommodate. Really fun tour and a great guide.

Gabriele was a fantastic guide!

We really enjoyed it! Having 2 girls of 14 and a girl of 8 we were a little hesitant about the success, but Gabriele made the visit to Bologna pleasant and interesting for everyone! It is an experience that we recommend and that we will do again for sure !!! Elisa
