|Rosario & Michelle|
We just wanted to say Thank you once again for a fantastic experience while we visit Italy.
Your knowledge of the cars, the city and most importantly the history of the stories behind the car creators made this memorable for not only my 2 sons but for both Myself and Michelle.
It was much appreciated that you extended the the tour by allowing us to visit the 2nd Ferrari Museum.
We will be sure to promote your business while back in Canada.
I just wanted to thank you once again for the wonderful tour you gave my boys and I.
They can't stop talking about riding a Ferrari.
Thank you so, so much for that!!!!
I already left a review on the website.
I am recommending you to everyone I know.
Congratulations on a job fantastically done!
Take lots of care,
I joined a Motorstars tour back in September of 2014 and enjoyed it very much. After sorting through the many photos and notes that I took, I posted a trip report on my personal travel blog. I would like to share it with you.
Please enjoy! I hope that I did the Motor Valley justice in my description.
Thank you for sharing this unique aspect of Italian culture with the world.
“Driving With Mr Francesco!”
We had booked this tour many months in advance and throughout Francesco kept us up to date. Even when Pagani moved their factory on the day of our tour he rearranged for an alternate stop at the newer Ferrari museum.
What can we say. He is prompt, smart funny and kept the all day journey very informative with excellent knowledge of the car families. We visited Lamborghini factory, excellent and down to earth. We also visited the Ferrari factory, this was ok as you cannot see inside so only what you are lucky to see from the bus. Then the Ferrari racing museum. Lunch was at an excellent organic restaurant! What a wonderful day in the company of Mr Francesco who also knew everybody in all the places, my teenage sons loved it!
“Maserati, Ferrari and Lamborghini museum/factory - #4”
The day started at 9:50 when Francesco picked us up from our hotel (Millennhotel) then we picked the rest of the group up from the Bologna Central Station. Our first stop was the Private panini museum that was fantastic. The panini museum also included a surprise tour of the parmesan reggiano storage room with tasting that the panini family owns today. We then proceeded to the ferrari museum and store which was an awesome dose of history and current models. Finally lunch had arrived about 1pm at the Drake ristoranti in Maranello where a 4 course meal with coffee and water was served was absolutely fantastic and was time to cool off and visit with other group members. Lamborghini was last which was probably the coolest thing of all including the factory and museum tours. The day ended about 6:15pm, all in all a fantastic day, we never felt rushed anywhere. The mercedes van is very comfortable and movies are played between locations based on your tour.Highly recommend for anyone who likes cars or just wants to see some awesome factories with an awesome tour guide.
“Fantastic day! ”
An area of Italy near Thanks for an awesome day!
The trip was well organized and Francisco was an entertaining and knowledgeable guide.
We had time to look at everything and didn't feel rushed.
Francisco made sure everyone enjoyed themselves.
The Lamborghini drive on the racetrack was the absolute highlight and a once in a lifetime adventure.
Thanks again for making our day unforgettable!!
Thanks mate!! Jo & Greg
Amazing day. My kid is still talking about it!
This is a really great day for any car enthusiast. We set up our tour to be at the end of our vacation. After all the walking that you do in Italy, it was so nice to be driven from place to place. We did the Ferrari museums/factory + Lamborghini factory tour and had a blast.
Francesco is a delight to spend you day with. He has tremendous knowledge of not just the cars, but of the whole surrounding area - which is quite interesting. He is also really great with kids. I highly recommend this tour!
Passion for cars
An area of Italy near Bologna is the birthplace of both Ferrari and Lamborghini sports cars, as well as the home of other high-end car and motorcycle makers like Pagani, Ducati and Maserati. The region Emilia-Romagna is also the home of tortellini, Bolognese sauce and Parmesan cheese, but the main reason to go is about cars, fast, shiny and expensive cars.
And the best way to see these expensive machines is with Francesco Bini, founder and owner of MotorStars Tours. Francesco is engaging and informative. Tours typically visit three car makers and include lunch (with options to drive cars for an additional cost) making a full day tour. The tour was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that was interesting, entertaining and first-class throughout.
Indulge your car fantasy…go for it…!

Passion for cars
Our family has a passion for cars and it was with great excitement that we were able to do a tour with Motorstars.
Ducati museum & Factory, Ferrari museum and Lambo museum & factory. Being driven to each location was awesome and allowed us to sit back and relax. Lunch was amazing and well organised. He has personal experiences matching the tour well. Perfectly time so we didnt miss our train. Would highly recommend the tours to anyone.
“Fantastic Transportation to Ducati and Lamborghini Factories... enough said..”
Was in Bologna, Italy for a few days and decided to do this amazing tour with Francesco. The transportation was prompt and very convenient to see the Ducati factory and museum, Ferrari museum, and Lamborghini factory and museum. Very nice to have videos between the attractions in a great Mercedes van. Worth every penny to get between these sites (in one day) with no issues. One of the best experiences for a car lover!!!
