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

Thank you so much for arranging a last minute tour to a parmesan dairy and Parma Ham factory. It was a highlight of our stay in Parma! Our tour guide was great and didn't rush us. I was very happy with this company!

My daughter and I truly enjoyed our tour of the Parmesaggio Reggio Cheese Plant tour, the Prosiutto (Parma Ham) and Balsamic Vinegar. Davide our tour guide was very knowledgeable and spoke in English quite good. The samples were delicious! His passion for the culinary arts was key as we are also in the business. I would highly recommend Parma Golosa... More

First of all, the booking through Parma Golosa was so easy. Denise was helpful and answered promptly through the whole booking process. We were sent the address and easily found it on our GPS. Also, the company was able to book our tour on a Sunday, when many businesses are closed, and worked it out for the Aceto Balsamico and... More

Parma is undoubtedly one of the mysteries of global travel. A city that should be a genuine Mecca for foodies from around the world, its wonders and delights still remain largely unexplored. For those who do make it there a tour of the local cheese and ham producers is essential. We were extremely lucky to visit a family run Parmesan... More

We had a great experience with Parma Golosa, was better than we expected and all we can ask from a gastronomic tour. We visited not only the local production of a Parmegianno cheese, Parma ham and aceto balsamico, with the opportunity to have a true food critic and journalist as a guide - Davide, who was very attentive to even...
