Great day. The wife and I got picked up at 8 AM at our hotel by Audrey, our tour guide, and taken on a private tour of a cheese operation and a balsamic vinegar cellar and had a pleasant lunch in the countryside. It was special to be the only ones on the tour and not in some large bus... More

I joined my husband in Bologna because he was attending a large trade show for his companywork. I asked people back home in Maryland "what do you do in Bologna"? I was sent a link and as soon as I sent an e-mail of inquiry I received a warm e-mail from Martina Kuhnert. After reviewing the choices I then selected... More

We pondered for ages if we wanted to spend the money in this day tour, after friends told us "don't even worry about the cost, just go.." And gosh we are glad we did. Alex was a WONDERFUL tour guide, and the local business we visited were fantastic. Just go. Don't even worry about it.

My wife and I did Golosaitalia's "Cheese & Balsamic" tour in May, and echo what others have said. Alex was a fantastic person to spend the day with- warm & friendly as well as very knowledgeable & informative. The visit to the cheese producer was fascinating, as we saw most of the stages in production first hand. This small "factory"... More

A friend booked is for us and it was the best way to see the city and get to see the city too. We tried everything and learned all about how the food was prepared. The tour took us through the markets and ended by trying all our purchases at a cute trattoria. Love this and will do it again.

We went out for the day, with another couple, with Alex as our host. Alex is bilingual (Eng/It) and has great relationships with the folks at both the parmesan cheese and the balsamic vinegar locations. She is an excellent driver and that made the trip through the hills very enjoyable. Being on a tour with just four people made for... More

We spent a day with Alex touring a parmesan cheese factory, the balsamic vinegar museum, and the market in Modena. We arranged everything by email with Martina, who let us customize our day to whatever we wanted to do. We weren't nickel-and-dimed for changing the standard itinerary, it was very easy and simple. Our tour guide, Alex, met us at... More

BEST food tour in Bologna, no question! My boyfriend and I were taken on a tour (just the two of us!) with the wonderful Alex from 8am until 7pm that night.
