While my husband and I were in Modena we wanted to experience how some of our favorite foods were made. We signed up for the tour of parmigiano, salumi and basalmico. We arranged for our driver to pick up at our B&B. I thought it would be a small tour but never expected it to be just the two of... More

Our food tour out of Modena was even better than the website description. So glad we gained knowledge, met lovely locals and tasted the amazing food products of this area. If we were to visit again we would explore other opportunities with this company.

We loved our food tour with Emilia Delizia. We requested the Foodie’s Delight Food Tour and farmer’s brunch. We met our tour guide, Tommasso, in Modena and went to a parmigiano reggiano factory, a balsamic vinegar producer, a ham museum, and a winery. We loved every aspect of the parmigiano reggiano tour. It was very interesting to see how they... More

We had a couple of days in Bologna and decided to book this tour to find out more about the food we love! This tour was excellent, our guide paolo was really knowledgable and we got to taste loads of Parmesan, balsamic and meats! Definitely a great way to spend a day

The highlight of the foodie tour was seeing how Parmesan Cheese was made. We also visited a balsamic vinegar distiller at a small farm. The guide Jacopo our and driver were very nice. However, I did not find the ham and sausage museum tour very worthwhile. It was OK but not that interesting.

Our tour was led by Tommasso, Paolo's son. We had a very enjoyable day learning about and sampling Parmesan cheese, local cured meats and Balsamic vinegar. Tommasso's English was very good. He was knowledgeable about the production of the many fine products as well as the region. At the end of the tour, we were dropped off at the Ferrari... More

Let me start out by say overall we were very pleased. The cheese and balsamic vinegar part of the tour was great - however the cold meat portion of the tour was a bit of a disappointment and in the big scheme of things I could have done without it. We first went to a Parmigganio-Reggiano producer and saw them... More

We had a fantastic ½ day tour with Paolo- the tour and tastings at the Salami museum, balsamic factory and lunch with the farmer was the highlight of our visit to Italy. Paolo could not have more gracious or informative. Absolutely wonderful!

We recently took a half day tour of a parmigiano cheese facility, a balsamic vinegar facility, and finally a tour of a processed meat museum(hard to believe) The first 2 were great,the last forgettable, The tour was advertised as having a gourmet lunch in Modena but turned out to be a few cold cuts in the meat museum.

Thank you for the your feedback, we are happy to take into account any comment and improve in the future. I would like to point out that our cured meat tour is done at the Musa Villani salami factory that has been established in 1886 and it is still family run business, they do not produce "processed meats" but all...
