This was such a great tour! We visited Parma in August of 2016 for a day. Angelo was our guide. He is very knowledgeable and has such a great personality. You can tell that everyone is so proud of the products they produce. We loved the samples and we had a delicious dinner. The whole day was an awesome experience!!

We spent such a great day on our full day tour with Angelo. The visit to the parmigiano Reggiano factory, prosciutto factory and balsamic vinegar vineyard was so special because of his knowledge and passion.

Hi Dick ~ am sure Angelo will keep in touch and just updating the home page at the moment to include a couple of Tripadvisor reviews but so hard to pick one. The other challenge is bettering the day we already have with the team, lead by Angelo, creating such special tours, it's a hard product to move the bar... More

Wow, from start to finish this day was one of the highlights of our trip. Angelo was a fantastic host and we had such fun on our food tour with him and another couple.

We spent the day with Angelo today on our tour and we loved every minute. Angelo is a very patient, knowledgeable and friendly guy and he makes the whole experience so enjoyable.

It was the perfect way to spend a day. Angelo, our tour guide, was amazing. He made the tour very informational while keeping it fun. He spoke perfect English and was knowledgeable on every subject.

Our great time on the Parma tour. We met Angelo and he rode with us in our car which was great. He is such an informative guy and very funny.

The difference between this tour and others we met during the day and shows the quality of this one is that we spent a couple of hours at the Parmazan manufacture in order to follow the whole process and other tours went in listened to the explanation and went on.

Lovely review and yep - there is a difference. Without bragging because we respect all guides in Parma even those at 'Discover' without full certification.

It's easy to look at the ratings for this tour and say something looks fishy, but I can assure you that this more than lives up to expectations. We spent a fantastic day on the three kings tour.
