We booked a day tour with Nicola for part of our honeymoon trip. We were very wary of going on a 'tour' because we are not tour people but this was definitely the highlight of our whole trip. We were picked up in a very nice, comfortable, new mini van and taken to meet our translator, Georgia. We had such... More

My husband and I recently spent a week in Bologna, Italy and we wanted to tour the Emilia Romagna region. Neither of us are big fans of group tours so we were not sure if we would enjoy a private tour any better. This tour was definitely one of the highlights of our trip and was worth every penny we...

Lovely day taking in Parmigiana cheese, Balsamic vinegar and Prosciutto ham. Picked up at our hotel in Modena by Simone in a comfortable Volvo and met Eleanora on the way, she being the interpreter and guide for the day. Fascinating seeing the passion and effort that goes into the local products and a chance to taste and buy. Nice lunch... More

Mom's top request when planning our trip to Italy was to take a food tour. We booked the 3 food tours (prosciutto, parmesan cheese and balsamic vinegar) with the 4 course lunch. Communication with Eleanora beforehand was perfect, she even confirmed the day beforehand. They were prompt in picking us up, and the car was comfortable. Eleanora did a nice... More

This tour was most enjoyable. We had a wonderful time at the dairy farm and sampling all of the delicious cheese. Our guide (who is also the owner) of the balsamic vinegar farm was simply lovely and gracious. The wine tour was a lot of fun and was a very generous pour. Lunch was a wonderful affair. Eleonora was a... More

From the start, Eleonora answered all of my questions through email... she was very prompt, professional, and very friendly. We decided to do the cheese, balsamic vinegar, and wine tasting tour. Morgan was our guide and he was so informative and so nice! He was... More

The tour we signed up for included visits to a parmigiano-reggiano dairy farm, balsamic vinegar producer, wine estate and closed with an amazing lunch featuring local cuisine. While looking at different food tours in... More

She explained how the cheese was made and were able to watch the two wonderful men make three batches while we there. What a great experience. Everyone... More

My friend and I took the train from Rome for a short stop in Florence and then an overnight stay in Bologna for the Parmigiano-reggiano dairy farm + balsamic vinegar + ham tour.
