Manuela was a wonderful tour guide! She met us at our hotel - a plus for us never haven been to Bologna. She shared so much history about the city of Bologna, showing us places a tourist might miss and stopped for taste testing along the way. Manuela was professional and thorough. We highly recommend a tour with her if you plan to visit Bologna! We only had one day before flying home to the states, so we'll be back to explore more of Bologna. Our first time using ToursByLocal & we will again!

My husband and I enjoyed our second visit to Bologna with Manuela's history and food tour. She is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to Bologna's history. I learned plenty. When it came to visiting shops, cafes and grocers, we were able to try local options, including the fabulous Mortadella and the horse meat sausage. Often new cities are difficult to manage when one doesn't speak the language. Hiring Manuela saved time and energy. I love letting someone else be the tour director on vacation.

Manuela was our excellent guide for the day showing us round the main sites of Mantova and Sabbioneta half an hour away. They have an interesting history associated with the wealthy Gonzaga family. In addition she walked us through the former Jewish ghetto of Mantova and took us to the synagogues of Mantova and Sabbioneta as we had shown an interest in the towns' Jewish history. She added an extra dimension to our visit to Mantova and was very knowledgable about the historical art we saw.

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 :-(

A first class tour with a first class guide. We were 4 persons (3 English and 1 Aussie). Manuela met us at our hotel and spent almost four hours with us (a 3h tour!). Her English was very good and her knowledge of Bologna's history and culture. She answered all our questions throughly and was full of enthusiasm. Being such a small group meant that she could give us her undivided attention and we all felt that she was proud of Bologna and conveyed her love and enthusiasm for the city to us superbly

We were a group of four experienced travelers. Manuela was an excellent guide. Her knowledge of the history., culture, cuisine and art of the northern Italian cities was thorough. We took two tours in one day which lasted nine hours in Mantua and Sabioneta with a lunch break which considering we all are inn our seventies was quite.an undertaking but we had a great tour which we will all remember. Highly recommended

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:)

Manuela is the BEST!. She is a 15 out of 5. She is one of the most historically knowledgable guides that I have ever had. The information that she conveyed to us and the manner that she did so was just incredible. I learned so much about an age and place that was of interest to me and that I had studied in recent years. Her enthusiasm and friendliness are unbeatable. I cannot say enough nice things about her. My wife and I had a terrific experience with her!

This was the second tour that I had with Manuela. Her knowledge of the monuments and history of Bologna, Parma, and Modena is incredible. She provides a great amount detail, which is something I like, about the architecture of the churches and the buildings in each of the cities. There was never a wasted moment, or a lull in the tour, it seemed that the time flew by. I really enjoyed this tour, and I recommend it and Manuela strongly.

Manuela made Modena live for us, something only a very good professional can do as it's a Michelin one star, while Parma's a two star. She has an encyclopedic knowledge and shares it in an easily understood manner.

She is charming and incredibly well informed. Gave us a good overview of an important place. She worked hard to show us many things in our short schedule. Very punctual and watched our tight schedule carefully. I was an art history major so she jam packed a lot. Be sure to tell her the depth of tour you want. Thank you, Manuela.

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!
