Hello travellers. I want to tell you about the MOST AMAZING tour guide you could ever hope for. Her name is Cecilia Alderighi. Recently, my husband and I were to spend 6 days in Bologna. The highlight was going to be a one day trip to the Emilia-Romagna region with a fabulous guide, Cecilia. Sadly, my husband became very ill and we had to cancel our trip, 5 days prior to arriving in Bologna. I contacted Cecilia immediately and she was so gracious and understanding. She cancelled our tour and waived all fees. She was incredible. There’s so much more. While I was planning our trip to Bologna, Cecilia also booked us into Three amazing restaurants, advised me about the best area in which to book an apartment and answered endless questions that would make our stay absolutely amazing. She is a gem. We haven’t met her but we feel we know her already. We will DEFINITELY book another tour with her when we do make it to Bologna at a later date. Most sincerely, Dollina and Joe Fox

Cecilia was a marvel. My husband and I are not “tour” people. We have wandered around the world on our own for more years than we care to remember. However, at our advanced ages of 85 and 82 respectively, it now more “doddering” than wandering. Our last trip to Bologna was twenty seven years ago and we decided that this time we might need some help. So, we booked Cecilia for a Bologna food tour. What a wise decision that was. Cecilia’s knowledge of the city, its history and culture is extraordinary. In addition to the usual San Maggiore markets and shops, Cecilia took us to places close to our rental apartment that we never would have found on our own. Every type of food has a backstory and Cecilia knows them all. We learned which prosciutto was the best, never to buy mortadella with pistachios, discovered a wonderful dessert called rice cake and now know how to order Lambrusco and not wind up with the sweet swill that makes its way to the States. Cecilia moved at our pace. She adapts her tour to the customer. This is not a “by the book tour”. This is a tour that is tailored the interest of the specific customer. You will enjoy her warmth, her sense of humor and her knowledge. You will not regret spending a morning, an afternoon or an entire day with her.

We had a lovely private tour with Cecilia. We visited a dairy, ham factory, Ferrari and Balsamic vinegar producer. I call it the food and Ferrari tour! It was informative as well as a great opportunity to see the passionate people make the various products. I would highly recommend this tour.

Cecilia was a wonderful knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide. She seemed to read the group perfectly and delivered an informative and flexible tour. She was accommodating and hospitable. Cecilia is passionate about her city and all of its wonderful local attributes. I would highly recommend Cecilia as guide.

My family of 5 really enjoyed our tour with Cecilia so much. We wanted to learn how parmiggiano-regiano cheese and prosciutto ham are made so got to visit the factories and learn first-hand on how this is done. She translated a lot of the conversation to English and was amazing in this respect because most of the key factory staff only spoke Italian. She also arranged tours to the Ferrari and Lamborghini museums which were a particular highlight for our boys. All-in-all a very memorable experience in Bologna with Cecilia, which far outshone our expectations. Grazie mille, Cecilia!

Cecelia is a wonderful guide. We toured Bologna, Modena and Parma and had terrific experiences learning about balsamic vinegar, prosciutto hams, Parmesan cheese and Lambrusco wine. Good value and a kind person. Hard to beat.

Great day spent with Cecilia visiting cheese, wine, vinegar and prosciutto factories. It was nice that she was allowed to conduct the tours of the facilities on her own (not vinegar and wine) because that ensured that we understood her. She also had gauged her audience so knew how much to share with us. We were recommended to her by friends and certainly plan to pass on her info to others.
