In the initial planning I thought of booking my visits to the factories myself and take public transport (as I don't prefer to drive) but it doesn't seem to be workable, because the visit to cheese factory is in fact free of charge but the locations don't seem to be easily accessible without a car. So I turned to private... More

We did the 1/2 day tour with our guide Alice. We watched Parmigiano Reggiano cheese being made, the process involved in making Parma ham and then we sat down to a lovely lunch at a local Parma vineyard. The entire experience was delicious and educational. Even my kids had fun. So glad we made the trip. Thank you Alice for... More

Parma seems like a quiet & sleepy town. You can visit the center in less than few hours. The highlight of the visit for us was the food tour. After all Parma gave the world 2 iconic products: Parmesan & Ham. We took the half day tour, driving with our car after the guide’s car. An easy driving & a... More

One of the iconic images that helped us decide on Emilia-Romagna for our food & wine centric honeymoon was the racks and racks of parmigiano reggianno to be found. We found tips online to contact the consortium to set up a free tour. Turns out they need 10 people and we were the only two. When it became apparent that... More

This tour was great. We were able to book last minute and get a private tour for two. We met our tour guide Michelle at our hotel and followed her in our car. We stopped at a parmigiana-reggiano maker, followed by a Parma ham plant and capping it off with a winery. At each location we learned in great detail... More

Sara at Food Valley Gourmet Tours was so helpful with our requests for food tours in Parma and for buses between cities for other group events that we had planned in Italy. Her responses were prompt and the company paired us with reliable bus companies. Not only did we feel safe during each transit, the tours were informative and entertaining... More
