FIND YOUR PERFECT EXPERIENCE IN BOLOGNA
Get to know Bologna through food and conversation
Maria and Maddalena were amazing hosts for a one of a kind experience! I come from an Italian background and I learned so much about food and how it’s prepared with them. My husband and I spent the first night of our honeymoon making authentic Bolognese dishes and drinking authentic Bolognese wine. No better way to learn about a place than break bread with the locals and become fast friends.
I had a fantastic experience on both the walk like locals & drink like locals tours- both of which I highly recommend! Gabriele was an excellent tour guide & I felt really spoilt as I had it all- history of the city, local experiences, visiting places I would never have found on my own, good company & many laughs! I ate so much good food on both- the stunning walk ended in a delightful picnic & I enjoyed some delicious appertivi on the drink like locals. Would definitely recommend these tours if you want some local experiences with passionate, warm & friendly guides! I will be signing up for more on my next trip to Bologna
Happy times, delicious homemade pasta
We had the ultimate cooking experience with Maria. It was everything perfect from start to finish – the booking process was smooth, the cooking class both instructive and amusing and the food delicious. Maria guided us through each step (we even went together the ‘Mercato delle Erbe’ to pick all the ingredients) giving us plenty of tips to make the greatest fresh pasta! Thanks Maria, we love making pasta for our friends in Dublin – No one can believe we learnt that much in just one session. I couldn’t recommend Like Locals more.
Great night with wonderful hosts! we were a family with teenagers, and everyone enjoyed the night. The food was excellent, and it was so much fun getting to know our hosts!
Excellent tour - highly recommended!!
An excellent evening was spent on the ‘Drink Like Locals in Bologna’ tour. Organising the trip through Maria was very easy and she was always available to answer any questions. The food at the first destination was amazing and I will be going back now that I have been introduced to it by Like Locals in Bologna. The staff at the first bar were extremely well informed and proud of the produce, and gave a detailed explanation of where all the food came from. Definitely the best parmesan cheese I have ever tasted! As we walked from one destination to the next Anna was fantastic at pointing out other locations to visit while in Bologna. Gabriela was born in Bologna and very knowledgably about the city, I had a great discussion about the history of Bologna and Bologna today with him. Thank you for a wonderful evening!!
Quality of food and drinks were wonderful!
We had a wonderful local guide. Warm, friendly, full of knowledge and happy to answer any questions as well. All of the places she took as too were fantastic and the quality of food and drinks were wonderful! We loved it!
