The tour is well worth... More

I was very impressed with our very genial guide Andrea, who shared with us his in-depth knowledge and appreciation of the beautiful city of Parma. We were a party of 4 foodies and Andrea planned a wonderful day wandering around Parma, stopping every so often at a wonderful enoteca, cafe or bar, in a perfectly-timed and very relaxed day of...

We had a private tour with Elena in our rental car. First we went to a Parmesan factory, then on to visit a prosciutto de Parma production facility. We stopped for pictures & lunch at the Castle of Torrechiara which was beautiful. Finally, we went to taste balsamic. Everyone at all the factories & the restaurant were super nice and... More

We planned for a few days in Parma, during which the private Gourmet tour was definitely a highlight of the trip. Sara was our guide who was very knowledgeable and passionate. A thought came to my mind that Sara must have worked in the factories before to know all the details. In fact she should only know the owners in... More

Food Valley provided us with a very knowledgable tour guide named Elena and a great private driver. Elena answered our many questions!! Loved the tour of the cheese factory. The staff at the factory were happy to show us how they make their product. This tour had been on our list for many years and now we've experienced it! Very... More
