We had a nice and informative tour with Federico, he showed us all the places which are not so easy to find by yourself. We also saw the most important places and heard about their history. Federico is very friendly and helpful and the contact (also before the tour) was very nice.

Wonderful tour of Bologna for someone who has not been there. Frederico was knowledgable and explained local traditions. He also showed us the best places to go for different types of meals. It was nice to hear the explanations of the two towers and why the church is unfinished. I highly suggest this tour if you are in Bologna. Now when I go back I have several places to put on our itinerary! Thank you Frederico.

Fred is a local and is super knowledgeable about the city. It was a great way to kick off a stay in Bologna because he showed us some major destinations in the city center plus some really interesting historical facts and details that we never would have known. He also helped us with reservations and recommendations for meals while we were in town. I really recommend Fred's tour for anyone looking to get their bearings in Bologna. Thanks, Fred!

Frederico is relaxed and very engaging. He took us to a few lovely spots and showed us places to eat and drink however there was very little content on history, art or architecture.
