Fantastic tour and a must do for anyone visiting that wants to get to know the real Bologna. Mattia was a brilliant host. This tour was one of the main highlights of our two week trip in Italy.

A great walking food tour, by an expert with special relationships with local producers, shops, cafes and restaurants. We loved that everything was included and Mattia obviously has such strong contracts that he didn't have to pay anyone during the tour, which could have made guests feel awkward. The whole tour was very well organised, with plenty of local specialised food and tourism knowledge. Every stop was different and a really enjoyable blend of food & drink.

Mattia set up a special tour for us because we came at a time when a lot of businesses were closed for vacation. We saw and tasted things we never would have on our own! Mattia was very personable, easy to talk to and extremely knowledgeable about Bologna and the food of this region. I am so glad we took this tour with him!

Un food tour de qualité. Un bon équilibre entre gastronomie et culture. Ce que j’ai particulièrement apprécié a été de retourner manger les pâtes fraîches dans l’atelier que nous avons visité pius tôt. Tout était délicieux. Je recommande !
