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.

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.
This tour was amazing!
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.
