Highlight of our trip to Parma
, Jun 2022
Roberta ( with the curly hair) was fantastic! She was so informative and so kind. The food was outstanding and we were full! Well worth it! Recommend it highly
Exceeded our Expectations - Fabulous!
, May 2022
Absolutely outstanding! Born and raised in Parma, our guide Michelle was wonderful - friendly and extremely knowledgeable about all things Parma. She took us to the best places for meats, cheeses, breads, balsamic vinegar, pasta, gelato and my favorite - something called carciofa from a famous Parma place, De Pepen. I would go back there just to have the Pepen carciofa again. Do not hesitate to book this tour - worth every penny!

Learned a lot about Parma and it’s cuisine. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable. You get a great tasting of food, wine and sweets of the region. We enjoyed the private experience as we could move at our own pace and spend more time on what was important to us.

Wow what a trip! We were met w By our very lovely tour guide Roberta who is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to Parma. She shares interesting facts and details about the city as you go around splurging on yummy treats. We loved spending time with her, she was friendly fun and interesting. The stops are all wonderful with helpful and friendly staff. I would advise doing it earlier in your trip so you can revist your favourites and pack some goodies for your return home. I didn't realise private really meant private... We were the only two on the tour so I think that this is great value for money- you are not having to share air time/space with other guests who can sometimes be asking too many questions or being pushy, loud or generally annoying 😂 haha. The pasta was my favourite and I am now convinced about lambrusco! Hundred percent recommend this tour. You will not be disappointed :) Thank you so much Roberta

This was a great experience. We were moving from Lake Como to Chinqua Terra and had only part of a day to experience Parma. Our Guide gave us some great history of the city while we tried some amazing food at different locations. Everything was well organized and well put together even though it was Easter Monday and many places were closed. I would recommend this experience to anyone who likes to eat!
So Much Amazing Food!
, Oct 2021
We had a great time "Eating our way through Parma!" Our tour guide, Michelle, had so many interesting insights about the food, culture and history of Parma. Michelle was professional, but relaxed and easy to talk to. She answered our million questions! I highly recommend this tour, but make sure you go aren't gonna want to miss a bite!
