This was one of the highlights of a two week trip throughout northern Italy. Booking was easily done online and they even accommodated a change in our schedule due to my mistake in scheduling. Truly first rate tour and our tour guide Angelo was very able to make up for our very limited ability to speak Italian. Angelo was very... More

Thanks for the review and always happy to see our CEO's great organizational skills ramp up! She's a gem. Fabulous communication skills are an absolute in FWT. Years ago I remember her working in a cafe in Dulwich, London, and feeling pretty nervous too... being head picked by a local holistic pampering store because of not just her beauty, but... More

Our guide, Angelo, was really knowledgeable. He provided a good blend of history and details that make the tour stops memorable. We are foodies, but this was just a great experience

I'm not going to go into too much detail because, like other reviewers, I want you to be surprised along the way like we were. But suffice it to say, our day (and I mean a FULL day) with our guide Angelo through the wonders of this foodie paradise was fantastic. We learned about history, chemistry, biology, art, culture, family... More

Running out of things to say about our boy Angelo, that I haven't said 3 dozen times already ... erm other than this. He never ceases to amaze us and our clients. The tour is like a rich seam of gold among the company of the makers and the best tour guide in Italy. But here's a story - when... More

We did the 3 Kings tour (Parmigiano Reggiano, Prociutto di Parma, Traditional Balsamic) and had a wonderful day. Angelo is a terrific guide (with excellent English) and there were only 4 of us (two couples) which allowed us to learn much more from Angelo about life and food in the region. The tour was THE highlight of the Emilia-Romagna region... More

I have been to Italy a number of times and I am having a hard time coming up with the words that describe the quality of this experience.

Firstly we have to say a huge sorry that you have missed out on our 3 Kings Tour. This was not a case of no show as we are highly organised.

Sorry number one needs to go to the Laura Pausini concert in Verona's Arena that was built in 633AD. That said, fantastic on all levels. Caterina was a wealth of information and given that the groups are limited in size (ours had 6) it gave all an opportunity to ask questions. The parmagiano, prosciutto and balsamic tours were timed perfectly... More

Laura Pausini!!! Hmm apparently she doesn't like wearing underwear while on stage!! Trying to think of how my Caterina could compete around the tour with that and the mind boggles!!

After researching options for a tour, this one rose to the top. We are so happy we chose the Three Kings Tour! Angelo was phenomenal - so knowledgeable and personable! The tour surpassed our expectations and ended up being the highlight of our time in the Parma region. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this program.
