Bologna Food Experience: Factory Visits with Gourmet Lunch and Wine Tasting | Feb 2020
The factories we visited were very interesting and to see the time and effort that goes into making each of these was good. Lunch was ordinary and our group carried on into the night after the tour which was great. Ariana our guide was excellent and very welcoming. She emailed us photos she had taken of the day and she was more than willing to share information about Bologna and Italy.

Full-Day Bologna Food Experience from Florence: Parmigiano Reggiano Factory Visit, Balsamic Vinegar, Wine Tasting and Gourmet Lunch | Dec 2019
Fantastic traditional food industry tour. Family run businesses were visited. All the food was amazing that we tasted along the tour. The tour went at a good pace and was not rushed. The lunch that was included was amazing and no one went away hungry or thirsty. They celebrated special occasions (birthday and anniversary) at lunch which was fun for the full group.

Exceptional

Bologna Food Experience: Factory Visits with Gourmet Lunch and Wine Tasting | Nov 2019
Even with a 7am pick up, it was worth every minute. If you’re a food and wine lover this is a must tour. Parmegano Regaño producers first, then Balsámico then Percuitto producers all with thorough explanations of the processes and viewing of the stages. Perfectly done. The tastings were exceptional with more snacks than we could eat with Wine every time. Lastly lunch was great. A lot of food, great food, the Chef Patty was great and accommodating for an allergy. Great atmosphere. Above all, Ricardo our guide made the day. Very knowledgeable, funny and warm friendly individual. He made us feel at home. Thank you for a memorable day. The driver was great too.

Bologna Food Experience: Factory Visits with Gourmet Lunch and Wine Tasting | Nov 2019
This day out was undoubtedly the best one we have ever taken with any company. The organisation was superb and it ran like clockwork although with such a small group (11 in total) we were never rushed or 'herded' around. Our driver, Alessandro, was friendly, polite and an incredible driver. Our tour guide (also Alessandro!) certainly worked hard - he was very entertaining and great fun but at the same time, incredibly knowledgeable and patient. His command of English was astounding. We were treated so well at all the places we visited and felt welcome everywhere, especially at our last stop - the agriturismo farm where we had lunch. By the end of the meal we felt as though we were part of the family. I really didn't want the day to end, so much so that we ended up spending the evening with some fellow guests once back in Bologna! Many thanks to all involved in the organisation of the trip and a special mention for Alessandro who made the day so enjoyable - and managed to create a few more 'food snobs'!!!! Do not hesitate in booking this trip - you will not regret it!

What an unbelievable journey. We were picked up our lodging in a brand new Mercedes minivan. Cosimo the driver was very professional. He stayed with us all day. After a short 45 minute drive into the countryside near Modena, we met our guide Riccardo. As soon as we were introduced I knew this was going to be a fun day. We started with some espresso and a discussion of the process for manufacturing parmigiana reggiano. Cheese. We then saw the entire process, which was fascinating. We then tasted several cheeses and had some Lambrusco. Riccardo was very liberal with the wine all day. We then went to our second location and learned about balsamic vinegar. Again we we tasted multiple samples including salami, mortadella and ricotta cheese. Again the wine was flowing. Our next stop involved learning about the process for making Modena Ham ( prosciutto), followed by a tasting and you guessed it more wine. At each location we had the opportunity to purchase product. Next came a seven course lunch. The food and wine flowed for 3 hours. We started off with 3 different pastas followed by sliced beef, meatballs and chicken cacciatore. Riccardo always made sure our plates and glasses were full. There was no shortage of anything. Last but not least the meal was finished off with a home made flan with espresso and grappa. The price of the tour sounds expensive, but it was worth every penny. Do not pass up this opportunity if you are in the area. I could go on, but I think you get the idea.

Allesandro is a great tour guide with in infectious sense of humor. I learned so much from each factory that we visited. The processes for each was fascinating I will never use anything other than DOP registered Parmigiano Reggiano cheese going forward. Vinegar from a grocery store is so inferior. Prosciutto was so tasty.

We had a wonderful time on this food experience. We got to see first-hand the care that the Italians put into their food, and learned so much about these very special ingredients. Our host Riccardo was so knowledgable and fun, keeping us entertained the entire day. We had plenty of food and wine the entire day, and the final "light lunch" was unforgettable. I would 100% recommend this tour to any foodies visiting Italy. You will leave full, entertained, and with a new appreciation for cheese, balsamico, and prosciutto.

Pleasant day with very enthusiastic sometimes overly chatty guide visiting production at source of local food products. Nice getting out of Bologna to local producers and learning about sources and processing. People came from outside of Bologna, staring our very early. A few nibbles on arrival would have been welcome. Some sitting space during some of the lengthy explanations would have been good.

Best Food Tour ever Grazie Francesco

BEST FOOD TOUR EVER - They were a few minutes late to pick us up, but , hay, we are on Italian time :). The Driver was friendly and polite. We shared the ride with 2 other couples and after a quiet and civilized 30 min drive, we made it to our first stop,the Parmigiano Reggiano Factoty. There, we were greeted by our tour guide Francesco and met up with the rest of our group. Francesco made all the difference, He was full of ENERGY and very charismatic. He showed an interest in all the participants and quickly made us all feel right at home. After the tour, at around 9:45, we had to of course taste the Parmigiano, Now, you could not have a Parmigiano without wine. :) We were served as much Lambrusco wine as we wanted. Woohoo, Needless to say, we all became even friendlier after that. After plenty of drinking and explanations, we were given the opportunity to buy some Parmigiano Reggiano, got back into our mini vans and drove to the Balsamic vinegar tasting, We were greeted by the owner and led through the Vineger cantina into his home dinning room, There we were served our breakfast. Salami and mortadella, with fresh bread on the side, accompanied by more Lambrusco. Now that is what I call a breakfast of champions. The breakfast and food explanation was followed by varied Balsamic vinegar tastings, starting with the youngest up to the 30 year aged "Black Gold". At the end of the tasting, we were again, of course, provided with the opportunity to buy some of the "Black Gold" of our choice. We then made our way to the Prosciutto factory. There we tasted and were guided through the prosciutto and mortadella experience, with of course more Lambrusco wine. It is now 2:30 PM and time for lunch at an Agrotourism restaurant where we were served 3 types of pasta, Veal cutlets, meatballs and chicken with a choice of wine. The meal was followed by an excellent Panna cotta type desert, coffee, cherry liqueur and of course GRAPPA. :) BEST FOOD TOUR EVER. Grazie Francesco. We will never forget you. Domenico and Antonia from Canada.

Not only was each stop... INCREDIBLE, but our guide, Ricardo, was Spectacular! He was personable, knowledgeable, funny, and more! At each stop, we saw, learned, tasted and drank! The owners of each factory/plant, personally met us and spent time with us. It was a nice sized group (we were 2 amongst a group of 19), where you could meet others but weren’t overwhelmed or felt lost. I would recommend this for everyone near or far ❤️🇮🇹❤️
