I went by myself to make the tour of the Parma prosciutto and I enjoyed a lot. My guide Davide was very dedicated, explained every curiosity about the production of the prosciutto and its history. He also took me to see the steps of the production and in the end there was a delicious degustation of the prosciutto Parma. I... More

We did the "Classic Complete Experience" to visit producers of Parmigiano Cheese, Prosciutto and Traditional Balsamic Vinegar. While the tour itself would have been a good experience, Davide (our guide) made the tour an extraordinary trip. He is incredibly knowledgeable, fluently answers all of our many questions in English! In fact, the other tour guides were simply following Davide's footsteps.... More

We are a family of three and wanted to do a cooking class that was on the casual spectrum and Parma Golosa and David provide the perfect day for us. We cooked in a kitchen out at an old mill. We learned to make pasta, bread, ragu and dessert. All of the recipes were easy enough to handle, and the... More

Our guide Davide was very knowledgeable and informative throughout our tour of parmeggiano reggiano, prosciutto and balsamic vinegar producers in the Parma region. The producers were very friendly and helpful and the high attention to detail they put into their products is obvious and lovingly passed down through the generations. If you wish to find a tour to give you... More

We rented a car for the day to be able to meet and follow Stefania to not only 2 manufacturing facilities but 3. All were fantastic with education, history, regional info, and details. Our first stop was a Parmigino Reggiano small family run facility. Two total employees, one being the owner's son making the cheese on a daily basis, 365... More

Thanks to Parma Golosa we spent an enjoyable morning with Erika in a tour of a cheese making factory (parmigiano reggiano) and a parma ham operation in the Emilia Romagna. Erika was a knowledgeable and amiable guide, very patient and able to answer our questions. We arrived at the cheese factory in time to watch that morning's batch of cheese... More

We, a family of 2 adults and 2 young children, booked a private tour to visit Parmegeano cheese and prosciutto factories with a car, chauffer and a tour guide. We chose this option over something like Italian Day because we did not think our children would enjoy a 9 hour excursion. We began the tour at 8am from Parma Station... More

Marvelous tour of cheese, ham and balsamic vinegar production. The parmigiano reggiano portion was most fascinating to me, but understanding the time and care it goes into producing that slice of prosciiutto di parma and drop of vinegar elixir was amazing too. If you're a foodie, you must do this in Italy! I was traveling alone, but was matched up... More
