Laura took us exactly where we wished for. To the "real thing", the authentic factories - Parmigiano Reggiano, Lambrusco winery, Balsamic acetaia. She has vast knowledge and excellent English. She's kind and friendly. Contact Laura by e-mail when you plan your trip, and she will adjust the tour according to your expectations. That's what I did and we loved every... More

I really can't recommend this day enough. Laura picked us up in Parma and took us to see the production of cheese, Lambrusco, prosciutto and balsamic, with plenty of tastings and a lovely lunch along the way. All of the factories are small, using traditional production methods and the owners' pride in the products is apparent. Laura and the owners... More

We recently spent a fantastic Sunday morning with Laura who guided us around a Parmiggiano Reggiano factory and a balsamic vinegar accetaia. We were fascinated by the process of cheese making and hugely impressed by the factory owners dedication, passion for his cheese and sheer hard work. Laura is extremely well informed about the whole process and answered all of... More

We just spent a wonderful and informative day with Laura learning about Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, Lambrusco, prosciutto, and balsamic vinegar. She is a very personable and knowledgeable guide. My 17 year old nephew accompanied us and thought the day was very enjoyable. This is a great activity for any one who is interested in the food and wine of Italy.

My husband and I spent a day with Laura touring the various food and beverage producers of Parma, including parmiggiano, prosciutto, Lambrusco wine, balsamic vinegar, and a delicious lunch. Laura is very nice, very friendly, and super knowledgable. We tasted and bought a lot of delicious treats and the tour was definitely the highlight of our time in Italy.

This was a really fantastic tour! We are a discerning bunch of foodies and Laura was very knowledgeable and took us behind the scenes to some really wonderful places. It was also much better value that other tours we looked at. Highly recommended!

The answer is simple: Laura's tour will provide a personalized, individualized and more intimate experience. You go only with your own party, whether you are a couple (like us) or a family rather than being with a bunch of strangers and a company that sees what they're doing as a business rather than a friendly encounter. Being with Laura for... More

Laura is born and lived in Parma all her Life and there was no questions that she could not answer. I have done similar tours in different places and have to say that... More

Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, Prosciutto (and other meats) and Balsamic Vinegar - these are the food highlights of the Parma region. Laura is friendly, engaging and very knowledgeable about this region having lived in Parma her entire life. She has personal relationships with all the places we visited which made this tour more meaningful. When a process could not be personally... More
