5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2018

This fun and interesting tour was the highlight of our Bologna visit. Our group of 9 friends learned a lot about the making of parmegian cheese, balsamic vinegar and Prociutto. We had a very personable and funny tour guide, Arianna, who enthusiastically explained the food making processes with a lot of wit and passion. The tour drove us outside of Bologna and through the beautiful Modena countryside. It ended with a fun, delicious, multi-course afternoon meal overlooking the beautiful countryside. This was a fun and memorable experience. I highly recommend this tour.

The highlight of our 11 day trip to Italy. Absolutely fantastic tour, hands on, couldn't be more fun or informative. Truly the best way to appreciate the beauty and purity of Italian cuisine.

This tour is a must and well worth getting up early to experience. Alessandro was very knowledgeable and made the day so much fun. His high energy and great sense of humor kept everyone engaged and ensured we all had a great time. There were several different types of wine to go along with the food tastings - all outstanding. After touring all three factories we has the most amazing lunch featuring regional specialties amd even more varieties of wine. The drivers were also fun and attentive. All in all I can say the entire group had a blast and didn't want to day the end. HIGHLY recommend.

The tour was fantastic and informative, not to mention that the food was delicious!! We also have nothing but great things to say about our tour guide Eleanora. She was incredibly knowledgeable, funny and extremely attentive to everyone on the tour. This tour was well worth the money we paid and we highly recommend it!

This is a highly recommended tour which is well organised and interesting. My girlfriend and I learned a lot from this tour, and of course had lots of nice food. The value of this tour is amazing, nearly unlimited food and drinks. The tour guide was super nice and have a great sense of humour. She shows the great Italian passion to all foreigners. If you are travelling to Bologna, this tour will be a 'must'

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

What a fun way to get to know the region...through food, wine and people. Leonora was an excellent guide, personable, engaging and informative. Learning about Balsamic vinegar production was fascinating, plus I brought some home that is delicious. We saw all steps of cheese making except milking the cows...amazing that two people handle so much of the production. Touring the procuitto factory tested our hunger limits so it was great that it was followed by a scrumptious outdoor lunch in a beautiful setting. In addition to learning about the food and culture, our tour was enhanced by the people we met from all over the world. A thoroughly enjoyable day.

A great way to learn about and taste the fantastic food of the region.

We visited a cheese factory which makes the famous parmigiano reggiano cheese, a traditional balsamic vinegar factory, and a prosciutto factory. We observed the production process and indulged in some delicious tasting.

Afterwards we went to a countryside restaurant to enjoy 2 hours of several courses of delicious foods and wine from the region.

Our host for the tour, Allessandro, was brilliant in explaining the food-making processes and generally ensuring everyone had a good time. We had our 11 year old daughter with us, and Allessandro got her involved in the day's activities.

A memorable and most enjoyable day!
