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

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
