We did the full 3 tours parmaseanio reggianio, balsamic and prosciutto. The tour is amazing alone. Made even better by Davide. Very knowledgeable guide. Pay attention and you can learn so much about food! Ask Davide about other sites and restaurants to make the most of Italian experience. :-)

This hurts: Stephanie was a fabulous guide - personable, knowledgeable, a great communicator, fun, but no tour can be better than its subjects. The tour of the cheese factory was great. you walk away really appreciating a hand work that goes into making a fine cheese... like cleaning and hand turning each 100# wheel weekly for the 2-3 year storage...

Our tour of the cheese, Parma ham and balsamic family businesses was all we wished for. Our package consisted of a personal guide (Davide) rental car visit to the 3 family businesses and lunch at a castle. The rental car arrived at our hotel on time and we were driven to a suburban location to avoid the rush hour traffic... More

While this review is long in coming, memories of the terrific day my husband and I spent with tour guide Davide are fresh in our minds. We opted for a private tour of an artisanal Parmesan dairy and a prosciutto Di Parma finishing plant. Our trip was in November. We drove from Bologna to meet Davide at the dairy where... More

We took a tour to a Parmesan factory, a Parmaham factory and a producer of Balsamic (Villa Medici) with Parma Golosa in July. Our tour guide Davide was excellent. He is really enthusiastic about food (he should be, he's a food writer) and knows everything there is to know about the making of the region's most famous products. We learned... More

1. There are over 300 Parmesan Cheese makers in the area - so do not worry, because there is not "the one you must see". The one we saw was very small, a family operation, it was nice. Our tour guide really did the touring - explains everything - as opposed to the people who were busy making cheese (balsamic... More

Amazing experience knowing the way that the Parmesan cheese and Prosciutto are produced. Our tour guide Davide was amazing in all aspects with a lot of knowledge and very friendly.

I was taking my parents on holiday and we stopped in Parma on my father's birthday en route to Tuscany not knowing what to expect, but it seemed natural to learn about the food from this famous region. We certainly were not disappointed! The Parmesan cheese and Prosciutto di Parma factory tours were fantastic. Being the only people on the... More

We expected this tour to be a highlight of our Italy vacation. In fact, we traveled quite a long distance in order to partake in this unique experience. Unfortunately, while the tour had the potential to be great, ours fell short in a number of areas. On the positive side, the person who helped us set up the tour was... More

we did all three tours - parmegiano-reggiano, acceto balsamico and Prosciutto di parma; all very good to excellent; you learn the process; small production facilities; the guide is knowledgable, genuine and fun (and speaks pretty good English also). I feel I understand the process, the quality, the regulation, the history of all 3 products; we see cheese and lots of... More
