Food Tastings with Francesca = YUM
Dec 2019
On the morning of our Food Tastings Tour with Francesca it was raining heavily. Happily, the tour started in the market where the local vendors had thoughtfully set up tent-shelters, and the rain did nothing to dampen our experience. Francesca didn't let a little rain ruin the fun! My husband and I are not foodies, and Francesca was happy to help us enjoy the delights of Italian foods despite being novices. We happily enjoyed several Italian 'comfort foods' which were extra tasty in the chill of a rainy day! Thanks, Francesca.

Very delicious food suggested by a local, entertaining and good organized!
Oct 2020 • Family
We really enjoyed the delicious tour with Mauro. We felt very good hosted and special as Mauro was chosing his most loved food from Bologna with storytelling- nothing general and touristic. Mauro is a very sympathic guy, entertaining & taking care of you. Once he is in Hambourg he is very welcomed to be our food guest!

Hermes was one of the most accommodating hosts/guides we have ever
met. We had to change our plan multiple times because of the recent
virus outbreak and he changed his plans for us. He also customized the
tour for us to avoid crowded places. The food tastings were all well
thought out and something we would have never stumbled up on our own.
The final stop was at an Osteria where Hermes, me and my wife had
bread, cheese and wine, the quintessential Italian experience.
Definitely recommend it!

With Locals Mauro - Discovering the heart and soul of Bologna.
Feb 2020
We had never been to Bologna but had been on several walking tours in
other cities, so the expectations were high. Mauro did not disappoint.
In fact, he has really raised the bar. Although we booked a food tour,
we also wanted to get to know the history and culture of Bologna.
Thanks to Mauro, we did exactly that. The food was to die for. We ate
things we had never eaten before and ate in places we would never have
dreamed of. No spoilers. You have to taste it to experience it. Mauro
not only knows his city inside and out but is a fabulous storyteller
who really made Bologna come alive for us. He gave us great advice
about what to do the next day and told us where to eat like a local.
All of his tips were spot on and made our Bologna experience
unforgettable. Saying goodbye at the end of our tour was like saying
goodbye to an old friend. We can totally recommend with locals and
with Mauro.

Our tour with Hermes was great! He accommodated our group of 7 and at
late notice. We enjoyed all the different foods and was happy that the
children had food options also. Thank you Hermes!
