Our tour guide, the son of a master cheese maker, was a charming walking encyclopedia of cheese making. He knew the proprietor, the workers and the process. Our fellow tourists , 5 in number, were comparable and pleasant to be with. The ham visit was equally close to the heart of our guide. Never have I had a better 1/2 day tour in Italy!! Not to be overlooked was the guide’s knowledge of the scientific underpinnings of cheese and ham preservation.

This is a “ do not miss” tour. To actually see the Parmesan cheese production and the Parma ham production was very enlightening. We now have better appreciation for the prices we pay for those items as much hard work goes into each. We were promptly picked up at our hotel by Ciara who was also our informative tour guide. She gave us great information! We loved both tours! Thank you Ciara!

You get to visit small production sites for parmigiano reggiano and Parma ham, with a knowledgeable and charming guide telling you all about the processes involved. Pickup worked surprisingly well, we got written directions the day before and even a Google maps link to the exact meeting spot. Since you're in a small group it feels almost like a private tour. Loved the tastings paired with local wine, although the Parma ham tasting did feel a little rushed. Could also have done with a broader selection of ham than just one plate, maybe different ages? After the tour we agreed to be dropped off in the center and our guide recommended a local restaurant for lunch, which was also fantastic. Made for a great ending to the tour.

The cheese part of the tour was amazing and we got to see them making it right in front of us! The ham part was interesting, but all we saw was hams hanging up in the coolers but there was no live action like with the cheese. So that was a little disappointing. The absolute best part of the tour was our guide Chiara!! So knowledgable, so fun, and spoke great English. (But also helped us with our Italian).

This tour was amazing - learning the history of the Parma ham production and the cheese. Seeing all the steps of the cheese making and a wonderful tasting of cheese, wine and balsamic vinegars. The Parma ham tour was interesting and in the area that is known for their hams. The ham and wine tasting afterwards was generous and delicious. We were thoroughly pleased with the experience and would recommend it to all - Foodie or not!

The tour was everything we hoped it would be and more! Our guide, Matteo, picked us up from our hotel in the morning, and we were able to see the whole Parmesano Reggiano production very close to the cheesemakers. Highly recommend booking a morning tour to see the cheese taken out of the vats. The Parma ham tour was equally incredible, and included an amazing view of the entire Parma valley. Matteo was the perfect guide - very knowledgeable about the roads and region of Parma, wonderful English skills and of course very knowledgeable about Parmaseano-Reggiano and Parma Ham!

We had visited the cheese factory and the Parma ham factory. Even though you need to wake up early,the cheese making process is really interesting!
