Denise was very helpful explaining our different options for the food tours and what would be best for us given our schedule. We opted to go with the ham and cheese tour.

We were extremely lucky to have such a well-versed guide as Davide. He is a wealth of knowledge, yet he is extremely friendly and approachable - like a close friend. He was able to tailor our tour exactly to our needs based on our knowledge and interests. This is a one of a kind amazing food tour that you will... More

Then the tour Denise booked for Us was just AMAZING! We started by meeting our tour guide Riccardo at the cheese factory, then a short drive to the balsamic... More

really cool experience! We saw the process of making parmigiano cheese and later prosciutto di parma. The first tour was more interesting than the other one so the parma tour is not really a must! At the end we had a tasty lunch at a really nice place with a beautiful view. Besides hams and cheese we also tried lambrusco... More

We went on a Parmigiano Reggiano cheese production tour and the Balsamic Vinegar Tour in July 2014. The cheese tour took place in a small family run cheese factory called Caseificio San Pier Damiani located on the outskirts of Parma, just 15 minutes drive from the city centre. My family of three had a personal guide named Ricardo who waited... More

We loved it and we would recommend it to anyone! This is not a tour: it is a feast of taste which takes you through the wonders of the parmisan cousine. And David (Davide!), the guide, is absolutely amazing; knowledgeable and entertaining, he tells you a fascinating story of humble local traditions evolving into modern entrepreneurship. It does not matter... More

My wife and I spent two days in September, 2014 touring local family run Balsamic, Cheese and Prosciutto production in the Parma region with Davide. His local knowledge made each stop a special experience. After we parted ways my wife and I felt like Davide was a close friend that we wanted to go back and visit as soon as... 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
