Our group of three met with Davide in the end of December. Although our tour took place on a Sunday in the dead of the season, Davide guided on a splendid trip of how prosciutto and culatello are made. His knowledge and passion about food was incredible. We have not only learned so much, but most importantly we tasted all the good stuff that we encountered. And more. Davide had some good tips about sightseeing and dinner afterwards, that we happily embraced. If you're visiting Emilia, do not miss one of tours that Parma Golosa offers!

We booked a private tour with David. Aside from the cheese farm, he was the best part of the tour! David was knowledgable and shared many experiences he's had around the region. He spoke well and was very patient taking us to 4 different places. You can feel his passion with how he explained each region and stops we made along the way. If you're thinking of booking with this company, make sure to look for him. Now the tours, the cheese farm was the best part. We were able to witness how they made Parmigiano Reggiano. The farm doesn't wait for you so make sure you arrive on time. We tasted the best ricotta here. Still warm drizzled with some balsamic vinegar. Went to balsamic vinegar tour and that was also nice. I didn't realize the difference in taste between the different ages of vinegar. Ended up buying the gold 45 yr old bottle. Culatello was a nice stop since we've only had prosciutto in the US. Stopped here for lunch. You can skip the Prosciutto tour. It's far and not too much to see except for hanging meats in a very old desolate building. I expected a little more from this tour. It was disappointing. All in all it was a great experience and we learned a lot from David. Highly recommended.

Davide is absolutely wonderful. We asked for a very custom, and very busy tour, and we were not disappointed!! We got to see Reggiano Parmigiano cheese being made, Parma Ham AND Culatello in the making, and tasting , Balsamic Vinegar production, and a cooking class overlooking a vineyard! Along with 2 wonderful meals! Davide is a wealth of knowledge on the area and arranged everything for us from the time he picked us up at the train station to the time we were dropped off at a beautiful BnB. I cant say enough wonderful things about this experience!! Absolutely perfect!!

Took a trip to Italy this summer with my boyfriend and our most amazing time was this tour. We toured the Parmesan cheese production site, prosciutto and culatello site! Davide is full of knowledge and was a great tour guide. Our day ended with lunch, the food was amazing! The best pasta I have ever had. During our trip we also visited Rome, Florence and Venice. The tour was a GREAT way to get always from all of the people/ tourist attractions. Don't get me wrong, those parts of Italy were also AMAZING, but Parma just had a different vibe, different pace that I think anyone can appreciate.

We booked a private self-drive tour of four products including lunch. It was fascinating. Our guide was knowledgeable, polite and fluent in English. We toured a Parmigiano Reggiano producer, a balsamic vinegar producer(had to buy some of that to take home), a prosciutto maker and a culatello cellar. We had a late lunch there, tasting all the products we had seen (again) plus several more courses. The restaurant was charming and the food delicious. Although the lunch was included in the price of the tour, my husband and I were left to enjoy it on our own and at our own pace. Using google maps, we had no trouble finding our meeting point or finding our way home at the end of the tour.
