Isadora was charming, knowledgeable and very responsive to our interests and questions. It's apparent how much she loves Bologna and wanted to us to share her enthusiasm for her wonderful city. We loved the time she spent with us -- we couldn't have asked for a better guide and experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Barry, thank you so much for your reviews! It has been a real pleasure having you and your wife on the tour. I hope to see you soon in Bologna!

Isadora is a great guide for Bologna. She knows the city well both from a historical and a modern perspective. She got us acquainted with the city and walked us through some of the oldest parts. She had some really great stories to tell about the history. She was also able to recommend places that would be in our price range for some of the best food in town. I would highly recommend spending an afternoon with her!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Angelo, thank you very much for your lovely feedback. It was a real delight spending a few hours with you and your wife, usch lovely customers! I am happy you enjoyed the tour and also the restaurant I suggested! Giving this sort of reccomendation is always a little risky for a guide as I have only known you for a few hours and you might enjoy/ be used to very different things then myself, or have other standards. Knowing that you liked the place so much is a real pleasure!

Isadora was very very knowledgeable, flexible and genuinely friendly and accommodations. Knew a great deal about the town but didn't push us to do anything we might find uncomfortable - like climbing stairs, etc. Would happily recommend her to others.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Arthur, thank you very much for your kind words. It has been a pleasure taking you and your wife around Bologna. I am glad you enjoyed Best regards

Isadora knows Bologna and has all the knowledge and energy you can wish for in a guide, we were impressed. Non stop guiding for 2.5 hours and able to answer all our questions plus a few more. All four of us really appreciated such a great introduction to this special city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your great feedback. It was a real pleasure guiding you around Bologna and I hope to see you again soon

Isadora was a capable tour guide who made our visit to Bologna enjoyable. While she is young, Isadora exhibited all the skills of a well-experienced tour guide. My wife and I appreciated the "secret" sights that she added to the official tour of the Bologna highlights.

We have just had a wonderful tour around Bologna with Isadora. She has a great knowledge of the history of the city, it's culture and it's food. She kept my three children (aged 17, 16 and 14) engaged throughout, took us to some wonderful hidden gems and treated us to many of the culinary delights of the city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi everyone! It's been a plesaure meeting you, you are a wonderful family and so fun to be with! I hope you enjoyed your time, although short, in Bologna. Enjoy the rest of your holidays!

Isadora was a great guide. She was able to answer every question I had about my tour and even was able to get us into a pizza restaurant minutes before it closed. Without her connections with the restaurants, my group would not have been able to get seats and eat before the restaurant closed. Isadora was also responsive to every email and text that I sent her. She responded immediately and answered all of my questions.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Bill, thank you very much for your kind review. Showing you and your friends around Bologna was a lot of fun! Hope you had a safe trip back to the US. See you again soon

She had prepared not only great shops but had good communication with all the owners of shops we went into! It was a fun day!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind words Heather! It was a pleasure meeting you and helping you with your shopping!

Date: Sep 6/18

Isadora was charming to be with. She was comfortable for the time we met, almost as if we had known her already. (Maybe because she reminded me of my granddaughter) She is very knowledgeable about Bologna. We walked for a couple of hours learning history and also little known fact. Then we ended up at a place where she had made a reservation for drinks and a plate of meats and cheeses - which she ordered for us. We had a fun and wonderful conversation during dinner. Highly recommend Isadora!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Linda, I hope you and your husband enjoyed the rest of your trip and the marathon. It was a pleasure meeting you and and indeed our conversation throughout dinner. I wish you all the best

Isadora is a very sweet person. She had stated that she was new to the "guide" business, and sometimes you could tell, but that was okay. she was very knowledgeable, knew her way around, and even made sure we met our driver on time. The food at restaurant where she made reservations was very good as well. She was also very patient with us when we were lost and could not find her at the start of the tour. Thank you for a lovely day.

Isadora was very good at showing us sites I had not know about like the Roman ruins and going to the top of St Peters for the beautiful view. She may need to learn a little more about some of the sites as she didnt always have all the answers to our questions. But I felt she was very knowledgeable and professional.
