Alessandro combined top-notch expertise with great humor, enthusiasm, and respect. He has the gift of being able to resonate with all ages and a range of nationalities. We learned first hand about processes to make Parmigiano Reggianno, Aceto Balsamico, and prosciutto di Modena, as well as what to look for to ensure we are buying the best products. The day... More

my husband and I had a fabulous day with Alessandro as our guide. He was the ultimate guide and host. We were picked up promptly at 7 AM., and take to our 1st stop the Parmigiano Reggiano factory, where we witness the "birth of the cheese", seeing the whole daily process. Our breakfast was several large pieces of cheese, bruschetta,... More

Awesome experience from start to finish: excellent food, excellent guides and very interesting tour. To give you an idea of the customer service consider that when I found out that I scheduled the tour in the wrong day (still in another city) the tour management was willing and able to organize a semi-private tour just for us in a day...

We have travelled quite a bit (not trying to sound like a pretentious idiot here) and while my wife and I sat in a food coma a few hours ago I turned to her and said "that is one of the best tours I have ever been on, and Alessandro is easily the best tour guide we have ever had".... More

In November of 2014 we had the opportunity to spend some time with Alessandro and Barbara when planning our trip to Bologna. Every two years we try to make it to Italy and always look for a food experience tour. My husband is a Chef so he is very skeptical about what I am dragging him into but Italian Days... More

This was without a doubt the highlight of our trip in Italy and Spain. I could not recommend this trip more highly. They picked us up in Bologna and drove us to a Parmesan Reggiano factory. The four of us (three people and one guide) were the only ones in the factor other than the 6-8 workers who were busy... More

Every aspect of this tour to Modena, the comfortable transportation, the expert entertaining commentary by owner Alessandro, the quality of the products at the rural sites, and the amazing lunch at a trattoria also in the Emilio-Romagna hills was fantastic. The tour to a cheese factory, an artisanal balsamic vinegar maker, and a producer of parma-style ham took all day... More

We went on the Bologna food tour this morning and had a wonderful time. The pick up went very smoothly, our driver Marco was on time and very polite. We were a group of 12 but it didn't feel too crowded. The three main attractions were the parmesan, Modena vinegar and Modena ham factories. In each of them we were... More

Fantastic experience, from the booking-email correspondence with Barbara, to an amazing day out with Alessandro, this is a day not to be missed, we will go again! Pick up at our Bologna B & B was right on time (this is important to see the farmers deliver the milk for the days production of cheese.) Alessandro's food knowledge and passion... More
