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. Overall o.k.... More

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...

I booked the tour at very short notice and even though I was travelling alone they were happy to accommodate me. My guide Paolo was extremely pleasant and knowledgable. Learning about the production of Parmesan and Balsamic was great and I highly recommend adding on the winery brunch, by far the highlight for me with superb authentic food and delicious... More

We had a great day with Paolo. The first two stops were to a cheese production facility and then to a balsamic factory. These were both excellent. They were actually making the cheese right in front of us. We were concerned this might not happen because we went on a Sunday, so we were pleased. The balsamic was very interesting,... More

We spent the day with Paolo and it was great. First we visited the parmagiano production facility, where the head artesian showed us the process of preparing the regional delicacy. We then went to the balsamic vinegar producer, which was just as perfect as I'd expected, run by a little old lady out of her family home. It was wonderful.... More

One of the highlights of our two week trip to Italy. We toured the cheese tour, balsamic vinegar tour, and proscuitto tour. Our guide/driver Pablo was very knowledgable about the area, the region, food, people, and etc. The Parmigiano-Reggiano was educational. They showed us the entire process from beginning to end and were incredibly nice. We then went to a... More

We were surprised when we were picked up at our hotel with a VW Touareg, as we were expecting a larger group; and delighted to find it would be JUST US! Our guide for the day, Tommaso, was young, so we didn't know what to expect. Tommaso ROCKED!!! He was enthusiastic, and extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of this four... More

The three food tour was sensational but definitely add the private lunch at the winery as it was the highlight of our trip. The chef and vineyard owner, Polo, prepared a most delicious meal which included fresh vegetables from his garden, mouth watering cheeses and sliced meats, and which we ate in his most charming dining room designed and created...

My family did the Foodie's Delight through Emilia Delizia on May 10, 2016. We had our own van to fit our group of seven so we followed our tour guide from location to location which was great for us.

We were staying in Parma and wanted a food tour where we did not have to rent a car. We were thrilled when we found this tour which started from the Central Station in Modena. Our super guides were Paulo and his son (Tommaso). As it turned out, our train from Parma to Modena was over 40 minutes late arriving... More
