My husband and I did the halfday tour on 11 December with Giulia and it was a definite highlight of our time in Emilia Romagna. The tour of the cheesemaking was so interesting and our guide was very informative about all the processes. The prosciotto tour was equally amazing and then we ended the day with the fabulous lunch!

What an amazing day! Our guide Alice was so knowledgeable, we learned so much from her. The tour was very interesting about all the work and time in making the best cheese and ham we have ever ate. We were able to taste and buy cheese and have it shrink wrapped so that we could take it home. The lunch... More

The tour guide, Michelle, is very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. She told us a lot of interesting facts and stories about the gourmet which we really didn't... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our half-day gourmet tour. It all went very smoothly, and our guide, Simonetta, was knowledgeable. The tour of the parmigiano factory was a highlight - fascinating. We loved trying the different grades of cheese. The countryside between the different sites was beautiful. We unknowingly booked the tour on an Italian public holiday, so the prosciutto factory was... More

We joined a full day tour that combine all Parma representing gourmet : Parmigiano Reggiano, prosciutto di Parma, Acetaia balsamic and all-we-should-eat & drink-in-Parma at our lunch in a winery. We were picked up from and returned to our hotel staying by polite and gentle driver in clean comfortable car. Most of all, the guide is knowledgeable and generously shared... More
