For those of you who have got prices for this tour and think it's too expensive......this tour is NOT expensive for what you get. I myself initially wasn't going to book it but then I am interested in food and the reviews were so good and it seemed less hardship than organising it all ourselves. We were picked up at 7am by the lovely Christiano in a new Merc minibus with air-con etc and were driven out to the cheese factory. I don't want to give too much away about the day because the sheer amount of food is surprising. You get brought through the entire process, you really learn alot, it's really interesting and explains why this cheese is so expensive,something I have complained about myself at home. Alessandro is fantastic. Afterwards you sample lots of cheese,have sandwiches and drink wine.
Then you move on to the Balsamic. Again very interesting, again more eating. Then onto the ham and again more eating.=)
The restaurant we went to was fantastic, the food and wine was amazing. If you were to add up the price of an average day tour, and average restaurant meal with wine and average transport it would cost you the same if not more than this one. There is NOTHING average about this day. I would go to Bologna just to do this tour.
