What a great review and really important point noted re our Guide's skills. Yes Angelo is very proud of the regional history and foods - having studied hard for his certification he stands out among the competition. Always ask if the tour guide has the proper legal certification when booking tours. So happy you had a fab day and hope... More

Parma is the place to be a foodie. The area is full of rich history and wonderful food! What better way to discover it than going on this wonderful tour to experience first hand how they make Parmigiano Reggiano, Parma Ham and Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale. We had Angelo as our guide who made us feel like foodie insiders and right... More

We found this tour on trip advisor and spent a wonderful, foodie day in the Parma area learning about the local produce from Angelo. What a great guide for the day he was! Nothing was too much trouble. He answered all our questions fully; he clearly has a wealth of knowledge about the area and its food heritage. Thank you... More

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

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.

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.

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
