Just can't say enough about how great this tour is! Our guide Alessandro is quite the character! From the breakfast at the cheese factory to a never to be forgotten luncheon at the estate it an experience not to be missed!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

We had a wonderful day on this well organized, highly informative tour. Allessandro, our guide, was well versed in the procedures for making parmesan, proscuitto, and balsamic. He is engaging and high energy. A driver met us at the train station arranged by the tour from Florence and joined the group at the first stop, the Parmesean factory. From there vans took us to the other stops and finally to a winery for lunch and wine tasting. The food, wine and surroundings were amazing! Each course came with at least two wind pairings. Alessandro and his wife were delightful. I would love to do another tour with them!

This tour was completely amazing! Fabio our guide was so knowledgeable and of course hilarious! Toured the Parmigiano, Prosciutto, Balsamic Vinegar Factory and of course we had a beautiful family style lunch in the countryside where Fabio kept on pouring us wine non stop! You have to book this tour!
