Hi there! Glad you had a great tour our Claudia is a great guide and sounds like she had you all locked in to the production info. Worth a note to say if you are part of a combined group you have to stay close to the pack especially at roundabouts. The average speed is 70-80 km on the main... More

My wife, two children (ages 12 and 9) and I participated in the 3 kings tour. As with other reviews, each of the sites was fantastic. Our children especially loved seeing the parmigiano reggiano being made in the morning as well as learning the process for Parma ham and balsamic vinegar. We happened to be with two other couples on... More

Thanks Paul for your great review and indeed your first ever Tripadvisor review!

Our food and wine tour was made by our guide Angelo whose passion for the area and its produce was infectious. We were late for our meeting point by about 15 minutes but Angelo was absolutely fine and unhurried. The tours of the ham and cheese factories were very interesting and lunch was excellent, but our knowledge of all things... More

What an amazing day we had. Alice was a wonderful guide and she was extremely knowledgable about every aspect of the visit. We learned about cheese making, parma ham, a local castle and its history, an amazing lunch and then balsamic vinegar. We did this with 2 teenagers and they loved it. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

We visited Parma Reggiano Cheese factory. It was an experience we'll never forget. You see shelves and more shelves as high as your eyes can see, of circles of cheese waiting to be ready to be shipped to the entire world. Experts explain the entire process and what it takes for the cheese to be considered "mature". After this visit,... More

We cannot say enough good things about Amalda and the “three kings” tour with FWT. The cost of the tour is undoubtedly expensive, but it is WORTH IT if you want a complete introduction into the jewels that Parma has to offer. We pretty much only came to Parma for the food, so if you are a foodie like my... More
