    We did the 2 hour tour. Have done tours in cities all over. In Bologna its people rather than cars that are the problem. Its still a great way to get a handleon a place & see how everything fits together. The guide was excellent with lots of context. A no brainer. Just do it :)

    In a town that might be comparatively limited in things to see this tour was welcome. A very informative and enthusiastic guide (can't remember his name but he is an actor!) who was great. Definitely filled in some hours productively.

    Very knowledgeable guide. Great getting around Bologna on a bike, seeing many areas that otherwise wouldn’t have seen. For example the canal that was typical of old Bologna in earlier times and significant churches and piazzas. Sunday is a great day to take this tour as cars

    Only 8 of us in the tour. Done a few of these types of tours which I find are great to orientate yourselves round a city. This one was no exception and our guide was knowledgable friendly. Loved the tour, my only suggestion would be a break for drinks as it was baking hot.
