Our expert guide Monica Vanin was amazing! We met at our hotel and began the journey! First we went to a small dairy where Parmigiano Reggiano is made, the real stuff! She went into great detail about the process and we saw every step and ended with a tasting of the delicious cheese....I will never balk at paying the high cost for this cheese again! Next on to Conti another small family owned producer of Parma Ham and Culatello. Again seeing the care and process of this wonderful food production will always make this food special to us. Then we went to a restaurant high in the hills for an amazing lunch! Tasting lunch with wine and glorious location. The food was one of the best we enjoyed during our 3 week trip to Italy! I cannot say enough about our guide Monica, she truly loves sharing her knowledge of her region and we felt her genuine interest in us! Thank you Monica!!!!!!!!

Excellent tour. Detailed explanations of the entire process of making the cheese and ham that make Parma famous. All while walking through the production facilities of both and seeing the various steps being performed. Extremely knowledgable and friendly guide who spoke great English. The lunch at the end, a sampling or Parma regional cuisine in a restaurant on a hilltop, was fantastic! Very professional tour company.

Out half day tour of Parma included a Cheese farm, Prosciutto factory and lunch at a local restaurant. Rosella was excellent, she explained every step in the processes at each site and was knowledgeable of the region but more important was extremely personable as was our tour bus driver. The tour couldn't have been any better.

Our first Viatour in Italy was one of the best. Our guide Michelle and driver Carlo were friendly and right on time. We traveled into the countryside to visit a working Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese plant. Michelle is very knowledgeable about the area farms and the food produced. It was exciting to see the workers engaged and how they care for the quality of the product. We then went to a Parma ham production house one of dozens in the area to see how the prosciutto that we love is made. Again Michelle was very proud of the quality and happily answered all of our questions. We stopped at a terrific roadside trattoria where we had a 3 course lunch with wine! Carlo got us home safely with our appetites happily satisfied. This is a great tour to actually see how are some of our favorite foods are carefully prepared. Jim and Donna Ferraro Connecticut
