As a first generation Italo-Americana, with many family and friends in Italy, I have spent a good deal of time there, studying, living and visiting the country. I have explored much of the country independently as well with family and friends. I now own a small business which provides custom small group and themed excursions to Italy and have done... More

Our trip to Parma was extra special with our Tour Guide David. He made every effort to make our experience the best. We usually do not take Tours, we like to tour ourselves, but we decided to take this tour based on all the good reviews with David. We made a loving friend and we plan to return to Italy... More

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
