Bologna is to Italy as Detroit is to the USA. Pavorati and Ferrari were friends! Francesco is a very experienced tour operator and a very nice person. During our tour one of our group lost his cell phone. Francesco moved heaven and earth to find it and have it returned. A tour de force! He has contacts all over the... More

I took the train from Florence to Bologna and found Francesco where he said he would be. He told me that due to some cancellations, I was the only person on the tour that day! Good for me but not for Francesco. Never the less, we had a delightful day together. Having owned three Ferrari's and restoring one, I assumed... More

Francesco made this one of the highlights of my Europe trip. Another group couldn't make it and I was the only one on the trip, he didn't miss a beat! Ducati, Ferrari and Lamborghini. Sorry for the late feedback Francesco, hope you're well.

This tour started promptly and the van was well equipped with video displays to get us ready for our tours to our various car factories. The ability to drive the Ferrari California and the ride given to my family is unforgettable. Thank you for the great day.

My husband and his mate had a great day at Motorstars when we were staying in Bologna. When they arrived back at our hotel you couldn't wipe the smiles off their faces. They both said it was well worth the money and they got some amazing photos.

I had an amazing day going to Pagani, Lamborghini and Ferrari. The tour wasn't available on the one day I had but Francesco put it together and made it happen. His service was exceptional and everything ran on time and his knowledge is unbelievable making the tour very informative and fun. I highly recommend this tour.

In a 12 day trip to Italy this was the most memorable experience that we had. Francesco met us at the train station on time and he took us to the Lamborghini museum and the Ferrari plant and museum. When we booked the trip we did not plan on booking the optional drive but on the day of the visit... More

What an amazing day! Francesco KNOWS everyone in these factories. You're going to get an experience most normal people wont get. He'll take care of you and make sure you have an awesome time. Super accommodating and extremely information about the supercar industry!

I cannot begin to say how great this tour was. We booked about a month in advance and as things got closer, I realized I had booked the wrong date. That was no problem as I was able to change without a problem via email. We took the train from Rome to Bologna and as promised, Francesco was waiting for... More

We booked Motorstars 'Tour 36' to tie in with our trip to San Marino Moto GP. Everything about the tour was extremely professional. We were collected at the train station in Bologna on time and met by Francesco who was extremely helpful and friendly, explaining every part of the tour. The tour was small with only 8 participants, making it... More
