Allassandro is energetic and fun. This tour was a highlight for us ! Some gorgeous food and drink, accompanied by interesting commentary on the process of making some of the world's finest DOP ingredients. Must-do in Bologna !

From start to finish, this tour is worth every penny. My husband and I had an amazing day learning about food. Alessandro was fun and knowledgeable. I am not going to repeat all the other reviews, but do not miss this as it truly is a must for any food lover. Do not eat anything before you go. You will... More

Everything about our food tour to a Parm/Regg, Balsamic Vin and Prosciutto "factories" was just fabulous. Great guide! Alessandro! Wonderful food and we learned a lot too. We (7 of us) had twin "food babies" and fell into a food coma after we were wined and dined at the Agriturismo and tour. Thank you for your passion regarding DOP! Alessandro!

I wasn't sure if it was necessary to write a review, since this experience is pretty thoroughly reviewed in a very accurate way. But I feel compelled to add a few things that made this the true highlight of our three week Italian holiday. Everyone is correct that Alessandro is a passionate, fun, knowledgable host. He is a genuine guy... More

I never thought when I got to Rome I would end up taking more pictures of cheese than the Coliseum (with the underground tour no less), but Alessandro's enthusiasm & passion is completely contagious! The fact that he loves what he is doing, shows his artisans great respect for their work (& it is obviously reciprocated) comes across in every... More

I can't recommend this more highly. Not only educational but lots of fun. The parmigiano reggiano factory was the most amazing! You can see true artisan cheese makers in action. The balsamico tour will give you new appreciation of the time and energy needed to produce a single bottle. Finally the 'light lunch' is perhaps the best Italian meal I... More

This tour is action packed with Alessandro at the helm. You get tons of info, but in an interesting way. He captures your attention and makes all of it fun, fun, fun. Not to mention the 7 course meal at the end in a beautiful Italian countryside restaurant...you would never find on your own in a million years. The limoncello... More

Food lovers this a must. The Parmigiana reggiano factory amazing, balsamic vinegar very surprising and tasty, of course prosciutto Parma yum yum. Lunch afterwards wow huge you won't eat dinner that night. I would highly recommend this tour and I would do this again. Thanks Alessandro for an amazing day.

I absolutely loved this tour. Allesandro was incredibly informative, amusing, and just completely wonderful. There were about 10 people in the tour, and even though I didn't know a single person at the beginning of the tour, they were like old friends by the end! I think there's something special about this tour that attracts people who want to have... More
