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

This food tour was the highlight of our recent trip to Italy. If you're anywhere near Northern Italy, it would be worth it to take a detour to Parma for this experience. We were surprised by how intimate the tour was. Each place we visited was very small, and actual production work was going on right in front of us.... More

Davide's tour was fantastic. He was extremely knowledgable and had a great command of the English language so there was no problem for us whatsoever as we don't speak Italian. My wife booked the tour through the website as they only offer private tours and we couldn't have been happier with it. Davide's passion for the local specialties also clearly... More

For all those who love high quality food and are interested in meeting the culinary side of Italy, I recomend this tasting tour in Parma. We took this tasting tour with Parma Golosa company during April 2014. First we visited a Parmigiano Reggiano factory (traditional Parmesan cheese) where we watched the process of preparing the cheese and tasted 2 differently... More
