Overall, the tour was good and the guide did a great job so 5/5 for the guide and 3/5 for the experience. Thus, I'm not buying into the whole half english half Italian tour. Essentially you get 50% of what you pay for and you don't really know how long each segment lasts so can't really go exploring for a couple minutes. I feel like I only got half the information or in other words, half of my money's worth. It was also advertised as a tour in English so it's kind of false advertising IMO.

Guide very prepared, kind and nice. The tour is very well structured and comprehensive. We also went with our 11 year old son and it was interesting for him too and he was never bored because the guide enriched the tour with very funny and interesting anecdotes that gave appeal to art and history. On the tour we also passed in front of historic shops in the city because in this region much importance is given to local food and it is very appreciable. I recommend everyone to take these guided tours even if you have already been to a city because you can see the city from another angle (which is absolutely impossible on your own). To prevent confusion and city noise from preventing listening to the guide, at the start everyone is given new and personal headphones that allow you to hear the guide talking even from a few meters away and this also allows greater flexibility while walking around the city.

Did two hour tour with Edoardo. Very good guide, proud of his city. He wanted us to see as much as possible and recommended many things to see. Beautiful Bologna, surely you have to come back to see all the things it offers. Get your guide you never let me down. Thank you
