“Ducati tour ruled”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

My husband really wanted to go on this tour and I went along with him. I was pleasantly surprised and we both enjoyed it. Our tour was in English and very easy to understand our guide. First we toured the factory and then the museum. I was worried because we were scheduled for the last tour of the day and thought we might be rushed but we were not.

The factory Ducati shop located about two blocks away had excellent merchandise. Go after the tour because they give you a discount card that you can use in the store. Many of the people on our tour went prior to the tour and were bummed.

The directions for how to get to the factory via train/bus that were on the website were excellent.

“Worth the visit and then some.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Arrived at the appointed time and got sent to meet our tour leader Natasha. Very professional, very bubbly and friendly and very knowledgable of all things Ducati.
First up we got out ear pieces and straight into the factory. Very modern and definitely a more personal build than say a Harley. Very few work on each individual bike. The overall tour demonstrated how switched on the factory is to the individuals love of a new bike.
Basically saw the building and birth of a complete bike and then went on to the museum. Wandered through it with a very professional briefing again. Some great bikes and great background stories.
Ended the tour with a quick look at the shop and went on my way with a smile on my face.
Well worth the time and effort to go there. Bookings are a must or you don't get in.
Even if you aren't a biker type it's well worth the visit.

“Don,t park in the public car park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We also had the unfortunate experience of having our vehicle broken in to at the public car park and had some luggage stolen The Police told us it is a regular thing for cars to get broken into. Great tour but Ducati must put up signs to warn of theft to prevent other visitors having their great day out spoiled when returning to your vehicle.

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

We went on a trip to the museum and factory and it was superb. The guide spoke excellent English and it gave a great insight into the mindset of Ducati.

“Ducati Factory Tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Well worth the 10 euros. From the start of this 1 hour or so trip it was clearly organised with efficiency and maximum enjoyment for those of us interested in all things Ducati. The guide spoke perfect English and was very welcoming,
