We've lived and traveled in Italy for the past two years and found this tour to be one of the best we've taken part in. Our guide Antonella was a true food aficionado and her passion really came out on the tour. We found the experience to be very authentic and very informative. For those who want to see the true Italy, this is it!
Long day filled with good food (plenty!), proud producers, beautiful products and lot of information. In all places we received warm welcome and attention. Our guide Alessandro was amusing, knowledgeable, unique. The van was comfortable, small group and well organised agenda through a scenic countryside. The best you can expect. We highly recommend this excursion.
Our group of 5 women loved our guide Ricardo, he was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He was attentive to all of us and a fantastic storyteller. Funny and adorable, our group wanted to take him home with us! The food was outstanding as well as the wine. Definitely worth the price and you will not need to have dinner! Very nice pace throughout the day, highly recommend!!
Ricardo hosted us through the factories ...starting with real time Parmesan reggiano making with the Breakfast of Champions, Proscuitto and tastings, Modena balsamic vinegar with many vinegar and wine tastings followed by a wonderful vineyard agrio culture country luncheon....very sumptuous and with a very charming host. We loved learning about all the production standards.
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.
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'
