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.

We had a wonderful tour of Bologna, with our guide Gabriele. Gabriele met us at our apartment and began to introduce us to Bologna. For two hours, we walked through the streets and alleys of Bologna. We obtained a very good sense of city’s history and it’s growth through the years, in addition to visiting many of the important churches and other historical highlights. Gabriele is very knowledgeable and very passionate about his city. We greatly enjoyed his easy-going manner and communication style. We would recommend Gabriele to those wishing to obtain and good overview to the city and it’s history.
