Guide was nice and told myths about the historical place which is great. However, eğile explaining the painting on the main church, she told an unpleasant thing about Hz Muhammed. She describe a rock in the hell which is drawn under jesus as the Muhammed. Elena should be more respectful for other religions.

It was a great tour. The guide was kind and helped me and my son find the venue as we were walking and lost. The only problem was the difficulty in hearing the guide when we were outside due to no microphone or earbuds connected to a radio as other tours have.

Wonderful tour if you're new to Bologna and want to learn more about it. The tour guide was knowledgeable and showed us lots of cool places we probably wouldn've not found ourselves. The group and the duration of the tour were just right. Although the first 40 minutes of the tour (out of two hours) were spent on the main square and in the church: this part could've been shortened in favour of visiting more places. Unfortunately I was not let into the church, because I was a young woman wearing shorts. In my opinion this information should be added to the tour description. The guide was very sweet trying to find a solution, however I decided not to go in.
