Manuela was a charming and informative guide. We are five ladies from England and thoroughly enjoyed our four hour private tour of Bologna.

Manuela is very enthusiastic about her city. We enjoyed our tour with her.. combining seeing the important and interesting sights of the city with some culinary information which we enjoyed.
Manuela made our day in Bologna extremely enjoyable. She is obviously passionate about her city and its cultural and gastronomic history, and that passion was shared with us. We learned great deal about the city, and sampled a range of typical foods under her expert guidance. Manuela left us with a new appreciation of this very old and unique city. We would recommend her without hesitation.

Manuela was fantastic! She met us at the Bologna train station in a very quiet place away from the crowd which is a miracle at the Bologna train station. The weather was cold and rainy but she managed to let Bologna shine for us. A wealth of knowledge and very personable, we would book another tour with her in a heartbeat. In fact, we are coming back to Italy in July and tried to book Manuela for a tour of her hometown Mantova, but she appears to be booked on the days we will be there :-(

My tour with Manuela on Dec 12 was a dream come true. I was seeking an authentic experience of the city with a local and I found it. Manuela was extremely knowledgeable about Bologna and incorporated many different topics throughout the tour. She had my attention the entire time. Bologna has many hidden treasures that can easily be missed. Manuela was great at pointing them out...interesting, thorough, and well supported explanations of all things Bologna. I recommend one of her tours without reservation.

Manuela was absolutely incredible. She was completely knowledgable, easy to get on with and showed us way more of Bolonga in 4 hours than we would have managed in 3 days. Her English is amazing and she is the perfect guide. I can't recommend her highly enough:)

A terrific tour of Bologna with Manuela. Manuela has an extensive knowledge of the city and region history, local culture and traditions, and of course the FOOD. Well organized, enthusiastic and with excellent English Manuela gladly adjusted along the way to tailor to our interests. Highly recommend her!

What a spectacular day we spent with Manuela. She was such a pleasure to be around and so very knowledgeable. A few in our group were apprehensive about taking a tour but I knew that it would be beneficial to learn some of the history and city facts rather than just wandering around on our own. We were staying in Parma so we only had 1 day in Bologna and this tour was the best way to spend that day. Manuela was really terrific!
Manuela tailored her tour to satisfy our interests perfectly ! It was a food tour for the thinking traveller with snippets of history and anecdotes woven in with with factual information about fresh pasta and Parmigiano. We even had time to touch on politics ! A great introduction to Bologna and Emilia Romagna.

I managed to see and learn a lot about Bologna, her history knowledge is outstanding. She also provided me with very good advise on food. Thank you Manuela for the memorable tour.
Manuela is an excellent guide.
