My boyfriend and I really enjoyed a great day out of Bologna! The cheese factory visit was amazing, being able to see the whole process of the production. The visit to the balsamic vinegar producer was a very nice surprise, much better than we expected! The food we tried throughout the day was really nice and we really enjoyed it. Overall it was a great day and I would definitely recommend it!
This was a very organised tour and was excellent value for money. We managed to travel to so many places in the one day and it is a great way to experience the prosciutto, parmesan and balsamic vinegar and !!! visit the Ferrari museum. In the middle of this day we also had a six course gourmet lunch thrown in at a beautiful restaurant on the hilltop with unlimited wine, beer, water and espresso. Book the trip, it is fantastic! Andrea was a great guide and made sure we were looked after and managed to maintain the enthusiasm of this group with his humour and energy. Such a fantastic day!
Unbelievable. This was truly one of our European holiday highlights. Our guide Andrea was wonderful and kept us laughing, informed and entertained all day. The lunch was amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed the small group atmosphere. Our other visits were also wonderful. Thank you for offering such a great day.
Fantastic day - our best in Italy.
Tour Leader Andrea was fantastic and ensured everyone had a great time. All destinations were interesting, with lovely people and delicious food.
A special thank you to Andrea and his Wife for ensuring we made it back to Bologna in time to catch the train to the airport!
This is a fantastic tour giving so much information to us over the day. 8am start finished around 6.30pm. Our guide was really good and so kind to us all. Lunch was delicious and of course the Ferrari experience amazing.
We met Chiara at the train station. There were only 3 couples so that was good for a walking tour. We walked to the walls and crossed into the town, visiting a small chocolate shop where we were served caffe of our choice and some pastries. I needed to eat gluten free and they brought out a savory GF pastry just for me - how nice. We also stopped at another small shop for a snack. We had a relaxing wonderful lunch in the anfiteatro with wine. Chiara combined a walking tour with these stops for a wonderful morning tour and light lunch, and pointed out good places to eat later. We really enjoyed it.
professional, informative, amusing and enjoyable. Would recommend it to anyone.
We had a great time. Thank you Andrea e Massilmo.the food tour was excellent. Very informative and delicious.
I'm personally not interested in cars but my companion was and he enjoyed it very much.
The lunch at CA Bianca was unbelievable.
On the way back we sang along to old Italian tunes.
Again thank you.

Great tour! Our guide was wonderful. Lots of fun info and very informative. The lunch was fabulous.
We would do this tour all over again! The guide, Massimo, is an art historian and a university professor.
This was one of the best experiences in our trip to Italy!
This was a great day! Both my husband and I enjoyed every stop: the parmigiano regianno producer, the prosciutto maker and the balsamic vinegar maker were all interesting visits to boutique type producers who have a passion for their craft. The tastings were delicious and generous and each offered their product for purchase at very reasonable prices. The Ferrari museum was fantastic and the four course dinner was out of this world. : Olga, our leader, was knowledgeable, friendly and well organized. The only concern I had initially was that their website advertised this as a small group tour of not over 14. There were 21 of us but it worked out fine. We recommend this tour to get a sense and taste of the region.
What a fun day we had on this tour. We learned so much about the food in the region, and the tour of the Ferrari factory was amazing. I would highly recommend this tour. It was a delightful day.
Excellent at every stop. Real educational tours, real yummy tastings. excellent driver and guide. It was a great day. The meal was unbelievable. Small group coziness, enabled us to meet some interesting cool people.
Fantastic day out ,picked up from our hotel at 8.00 by a very jovial bus driver and and a very knowledgeable guide called Max.
First of all we went to the Parmesan factory,Parma ham and balsamic factories,all very very interesting.
We had samples of cheese,ham and balsamic delicious ,I had wine my husband didn't as he wanted to do the Ferrari test drive .The test drive was absolutely amazing,my husband did not expect to be on the open roads ,what a buzz.Robert the co pilot was fantastic so much fun.Then it was back on the coach to to a stunning country house for lunch and copious glasses of wine.The food was amazing ,the staff very friendly.We were dropped off at our hotel at 5.30 after a very exciting day.The tour was exceptional value for money.Do this trip you will not regret it .
If you go on one tour in Italy, make it this one. What could be more Italian that going to parmigiano reggiano, prosciutto, and balsamic vinegar factories, then going to the Ferrari museum and taking a test drive? The food visits were amazing in their own right - you see how each of the products are made, from beginning to end, then get to taste various things and buy - with no pressure to do so. The Ferrari museum is fantastic, and I also took the opportunity to test drive one of the cars be warned - it's about 10 euro per minute to do so min. 10mins, but worth every cent!. We also had lunch included at a great restaurant and ate our way through five courses! Our guide was fantastic, and had lots of stories of both Bologna and the region. Highly recommended.
A jam packed day filled with great insight into many of the things that make these region so famous. A taste of Italy that we will remember for a long time.
We had an amazing time on this tour, it was the highlight of our time in Italy and we would strongly recommend it. The guide Massimo was fantastic, the lunch was amazing and the overall structure of food and then Ferrari was perfect. We did do the Ferrari test drive, another fantastic experience to round off the day - well worth the money spent as the crew at Ferrari Pit Stop are also great to deal with. This tour was amazing value for money!
Fantastic tour. Our tour leader and driver both Massimo, were great, knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. The three food stops for cheese, ham and vinegar were really interesting. My test drive of the Ferrari 458 was a personal highlight and all that capped off with a sumptuous luncheon feast at Casa Bianca. I would highly recommend this tour and is value for money.
Andrea and Olga were wonderful. Olga assisted in changing our pick up time, left me text messages and a written note of confirmation at our hotel. This was the best tour ever. Up close with everything unlike any tour in the US you have experienced. Andrea was an excellent tour guide, perfect English the company is lucky to have him. Our lunch was remarkable. Truly a 6 course lunch we were all in a food and wine coma on the drive home. My advice to you book early the trip sells out and it is worth every penny, great value for the dollar spent. Van accommodations and driver exceptional.
From alpha to omega this tour was incredible and to boot, our kids loved it. We fully recommend. If you do o lay one organized tour in Italy, then I suggest you do this one. Our expectations where high and the tour exceeded them. Many Thanks.
