My husband and I booked this and we loved it. We learned so much and we enjoyed learning how parm cheese, prosciutto, and balsamic is made. Prosciutto has never really been my thing, but I walked away loving it. It just tastes better in Italy! Lunch was really great, but there was so much to eat. I would have liked... More

All the reviews about Italian Days and Alessandro, guide and owner, are spot-on. Believe the press! Alessandro is passionate and keen to share his love of Italian food with others - I don't know how he keeps up the energy level! The experience begins once you make your booking, there's a cheery email that explains the tour and what to... More

My sister & I booked this tour based on other reviews. From the moment my sister booked with Barbara, Alessandro's significant other, we knew we booked with the right tour for us. Our emails were answered quickly, professionally, & with great humor. Alessandro was such a warm, informative, professional, and fun guide. His knowledge and presentation of information was interesting... More

Great tour, great food, great guide, great food, great tastes, great day, great food... We learned a lot about the art involved in making DOP products, and in my mind, DOP will forever stand for Drooling Over Prosciutto... :-)

We learned so much and really enjoyed our tour with nine other friends. We all learned to appreciate the art of making parmesan and the work entailed. If you have the time put this tour on your list of things to do.

I and my husband had a great time learning a lot about Parmigiano Reggiano, Aceto Balsamico and Prosciutto with our excellent guide Alessandro. It was beyond our expectation in every aspect; depth of Alessandro's knowledge on the food making process, his hilarious way of sharing that knowledge, and amount of food we could taste at every tour stops. Lunch at... More

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
