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

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. Our guide Ricardo was excellent! He had a great personality, his English was impeccable, and he explained everything about the cheese and ham making processes in a very... More

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

100% recommended. I was there with my family 3 weeks ago for 2 nights. Denise at Parma Golosa recommended me to Torino Hotel. Perfect location, beautiful spacious rooms and delicious breakfast. 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

I just want to say, that I had a great time, and learned a lot about the parmigiano-reggiano and prosciutto di Parma making process and history. Our guide Davide, did a great job and was very flexible to our needs. Thanks again and see you soon.

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
