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.
We spent 2 days with Cecilia eating Emilia-Romagna. Cecilia had a great itinerary for us around Modena and in Bologna. She picked us up in Modena, took us on private tours of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese manufacturing, traditional balsamic vinegar producer and a great pasta cooking class with Barbara and Monica at a vineyard. Unbelievable Day 1. Day 2 in Bologna amazing. Great food in the market. Beautiful walking city with great sites and great shopping. Cecilia is warm, knowledgeable and knows this territory very well. The stops she takes you to are all small, private and fun!
So thankful for our last minute tour of Bologna!! We decided last minute that we needed a tour guide and Cecilia was able to pull it together and even give us some tips on where to eat in Parma on our way down. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area and I highly recommend this for people wanting more of an authentic, cultural experience and not the big box tour type. We loved Sasha, our guide of the city who customized the tour to exactly what we were looking for.
Having a trip to Bologna planned in March to celebrate my Birthday with friends and Family we got in contact with Cecilia and Your Own Tour. From first e-mail contact to the end everything was really professionell, and Cecilia is very service minded, quick to answer and to help out with information needed. Sadly our flight got cancelled but as soon as everything is back to normal again we will re-book our Gelato Tour with Cecilia!
