Went on tour to cheese and balsamic vinegar sites only, and then to lunch. The tours of each were very interesting, and of course we really enjoyed the tastings afterwards! Camilla was a very good guide. The lunch afterwards at Restaurant Ponte Rosso in Monteveglio was, of course, delicious. There is no menu, the chef cooks what he wants to that day. We had a meal of tortelloni filled with ricotta topped with artichokes and coconut, tortellini filled with meat topped with strawberry sauce and ground coffee beans, risotto with mushrooms and pheasant, and veal with Gorgonzola, bananas, and port wine. Our favorite pasta was the first; the one with the strawberry sauce was unusual and interesting. The veal was great. The one negative was a lot of time was spent in the car travelling to the places (unavoidable if you want to go to the sources, but should be taken into account).

Nicola was fantastic throughout the whole process. My other half is Italian and as such, we wanted to adapt the tour to suit us - nothing was too much trouble. The day itself was fab. From cheese to balsamic, ham to wine and a top notch lunch in the middle. We would never have found this small, individual producers without Nicola's knowledge. Just perfect. Friendly, welcoming and built around us. Treat yourself and get father afield than just Bologna city.

My family of 6 adults thoroughly enjoyed this tour! We started with the cheese factory visit. It was amazing to see the whole process from start to finish. The cheesemakers were so friendly and hardworking. The next stop was the balsamic vinegar. The tasting was excellent and the tour was very informative. We bought several bottles to take home! Lunch was fabulous and we got to meet the chef. The food was delicious! Last stop was wine tasting at a local vineyard. The owner was so much fun and we enjoyed several different wines and learned about the different ways they are made from the same grapes. Our guide Camilla was excellent and knew so much about everything we did. She was easy to talk to and made our tour absolutely perfect. I would recommend this private tour to anyone wanting to see the beautiful city of Bologna.

We sent in our request for the wine, cheese and balsamic tour very late in the day. With hardly a half-day's notice, a tour was efficiently organised for early the next morning! Our driver Nicola was very patient and pleasant and we enjoyed his company. We would like to make a special mention of our guide Marika. She was great to talk to and knew SO much about.. Well, everything! She was very well-informed and expertly fielded our endless barrage of questions. I highly recommend this tour. It is worth every penny :)

We felt as if we were being taken around by friends, rather than doing a tour. Coming from Switzerland, both cheese and wine making were not entirely new to us and yet, seeing the special process for the Parmigiano Regiano and the local Bolognese wine gave us a whole new understanding of these products. And the Aceto Balsamico Traditionale: Amazing, the amount of love and knowledge that goes into the product. If you are even remotely interested in food, take this tour!
