Overall a nice activity. We visited some places already before getting the vouchers, some are basic cafes or ice cream shops, wouldn’t rate it as something super exciting. But the parmeggano and balsamico tasting was great and definitely something we wouldn’t have done without the vouchers. Getting the vouchers and meeting the guides was very easy.

Highly recommended if it's your first time in Bologna. We got a nice explanation what the vouchers mean. Then we got a map of Bologna with a route drawn in. The vouchers and the shops where you could taste something were all easy to find with a QR code and Google Maps. Kudos for the implementation.

It would have been excellent but some of the options were closed either on the day or for "the season". It's also not very easy to locate some of them but I would do it again because it was fun trying different food in smaller portions. I probably had some of the best gelato ever... And the mortadella "cone" will stick with me for a while. Crazy!
