We rented a car for the day to be able to meet and follow Stefania to not only 2 manufacturing facilities but 3. All were fantastic with education, history, regional info, and details. Our first stop was a Parmigino Reggiano small family run facility. Two total employees, one being the owner's son making the cheese on a daily basis, 365... More

Thanks to Parma Golosa we spent an enjoyable morning with Erika in a tour of a cheese making factory (parmigiano reggiano) and a parma ham operation in the Emilia Romagna. Erika was a knowledgeable and amiable guide, very patient and able to answer our questions. We arrived at the cheese factory in time to watch that morning's batch of cheese... More

We have visited 3 plants and in every location were greated with smiles, received explanations and tasted the products. This was fun and educational. We have finished our tour... More

We, a family of 2 adults and 2 young children, booked a private tour to visit Parmegeano cheese and prosciutto factories with a car, chauffer and a tour guide. We chose this option over something like Italian Day because we did not think our children would enjoy a 9 hour excursion. We began the tour at 8am from Parma Station... More

Marvelous tour of cheese, ham and balsamic vinegar production. The parmigiano reggiano portion was most fascinating to me, but understanding the time and care it goes into producing that slice of prosciiutto di parma and drop of vinegar elixir was amazing too. If you're a foodie, you must do this in Italy! I was traveling alone, but was matched up... More

We had an excellent guide in Stefania who spoke excellent English and was very knowledgable about both Parmesan cheese and Parma ham production. We saw the Parmesan being made but not the game as it is not made every day - just the machinery and the drying rooms where thousands of hams are stored. Lunch afterwards at Torrechiare castle was...

We had a Parma cheese and ham visit and concluded with some tasting at a local wine house. It was on a Saturday and no other than ourselves and our guide Elena, who did a good job explaining the production process. Really worthwhile if you are a food lover and interested how these are made in local houses.

We had the pleasure of doing all three tours of Cheese, ham and vinegar with Mrs. Stefania. We had lunch in the vineyard after. She is so sweet and knowledgeable. We were unaware that it would be her and us only. That personal experience was priceless. She made sure that we asked every question and she made sure we knew... More
