Bologna is such a beautiful city with impressive history! Our guide Riccardo was great. He provided us with a good mix of information (on history, art, architecture, geology, food), explained a lot of background and involved our small group in decisions what to see what to skip. After considerably more than two hours Riccardo said goodbye with some recommendations for dinner.

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.

We had a lovely day and couldn’t have asked for better weather or a guide in Pablo. Infact the entire team of Albero, Esther, Pablo and the driver Antonio made this experience so much fun and memorable. We also loved hearing Pablo’s stories and the history of the region during the hike. Would highly recommend to those who want to see!
