And if you don't know what DOP means, you sure will after this tour. Alessandro is a passionate guide, who have rocket fuel for breakfast. Energetic, fun and 100% all the time. The tour ends... More

We just returned from the tour of the making of Parmigiano Reggiano, Balsamico, and Prosciutto within the last hour. We cannot say enough about Alessandro and the tour. His knowledge, enthusiasm, and passion makes this one of the most fun days you can have. Although each product was available for purchase, there was no pressure to buy. The light lunch... More

Food of Italy was a really outstanding and absolutely unique way to experience Italy. Allesandro and his team kept the day informative and fascinating from start to finish. Allesandro himself was exceptionally friendly, and did a really excellent job of conveying his extensive knowledge and passion for the production of cheeses, vinegar, and prosciutto of the Bologna region. The tour... More

We booked this tour at the last minute and have to say that it's been the highlight of our trip!! Informative, funny and a gastronomical delight, we ate ourselves silly. If we ever came back we would do it again. And again. Thanks Alessandro for providing such an awesome tour!!

Alessandro really knows how to entertain. Everything from the views to the food and of course his personality, where amazing. We were exhausted after the day, but it was so worth it!

Let me start with a warning- starve yourself for at least a week before attempting this fabulous experience, and don't plan on too much the evening after! Our host Alessandro, a cross between Roberto Nenigni and Luca Zingarelli charmed us through Parmigano Reggiano, Balsamico and Prosciutto manufacture with everything you could ever want to know about each, and an abundance...
