Fantastic service

We booked our tour with Sara and the level of service was outstanding. She gave us excellent suggestions on other attractions to visit outside of the tour.

We were picked up by private car in front of our hotel by a nice Italian gentleman. Our first tour was Parmiagiana Reggiano cheese factory. It was educational and we were able to buy the cheese fresh from the owner which packed fresh for us, and a fraction of what we would have paid in Asia, excellent! The second tour... More

This was no doubt one of the best day tours of my travels. I had opted for the "Parma a Capital of arts and flavour" tour. This was a full day walking tour that included the most wonderful sights and food. I was collected from my hotel by Amalda my tour guide for the day and set off to see... More

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
