Outstanding private tour with Caterina. We started with breakfast of gnocco and cappuccino, followed by a tour of the market- so much beautiful bread, fruits and veges, cheese and meat. We stopped to buy some samples of Parmigiano Reggiano of varying age, along with freshly made ricotta and sour cherry jam. We learned about the provenance of authentic “parm” and nibbled on the aged cheese along with really nice Lambrusco! After more sightseeing , we visited a a shop with traditional balsamic vinegar and learned the difference between the “good” stuff and what is on grocery store shelves. At about $1/ml for the 50 year old balsamic vinegar, you don’t use it for cooking! It is truly an artesian product. After a little purchase on my part we wrapped up the tour some great gelato enhanced with the balsamic vinegar- a taste treat! Caterina gives an outstanding tour and answered a million questions for me! I was very happy to have found her, and suggest you line her up for a food tour in Modena!

FABULOUS! EXCELLENT! Would do this again, Caterina made our trip! She’s cock full of information, she’s such a joy to be around and we had an absolutely amazing time with her while learning a lot from her. We loved everything about this tour! The market, OMG, the cappuccino at the restaurant (Tiffany) she takes you to, last but not least the store that makes balsamic vinegar. We had the absolute pleasure of meeting the gentleman who creates the vinegar. Along with Gianni, she was so much fun! I recommend this tour to anyone visiting Italy, no matter where you go, stop by Modena! Ciao Bella Caterina, you are the best!

We could not have had a better experience. Caterina was knowledgeable about the food history, the history of Modena and she had a fantastic sense of humour. The pace was perfect and her choice of what to taste was incredible. Five hours after the tour, we’re still full.

If you haven’t put Modena on your list of places to see and food to discover, I would encourage you to. We did this as a random “why not, could be fun” and it ended up being the best tour we’ve done on our month long European sabbatical - largely thanks to to our guide.

Thank you Caterina for an unforgettable experience. Karen & Matt

We booked the tour only 1 day in advance, but was absolutely no problem. We had the best experience with Catharina, who showed us all the delicacies of Modena, from breakfast, the market, all the way to lunch. It was just the two of us on the tour with Catharina, which made it so personal and fun! It felt like walking around the city with a friend, which was just all the better!

Thanks so much Maxime for this amazing review. We've always hosted up to 8 people on our food tours because we'd like it to be personal and intimate. A real sharing experience. I'm happy to read that you felt the same :) See you soon in Bologna or Parma next time! Andrea - Taste Bologna

Loredana gave us a really excellent tour of this beautiful city's culinary highlights. We felt like we were visiting with a good friend and she was really brining us to her favorite places to eat, drink and have a great time. The basalmic tasting room was superb and everything from the market was so tasty and special. My wife, son and I will always remember this experience. I highly recommend this tour.

This was an awesome tour! Loredana loves Modena, loves good food and it shows. Not only did she talk about the food and options. She had books and pictures to explain how the food is made, and why it is important to the region. We ate well, learned a bit more about local food and learned about the city. We all left extremely happy.

Loredana was a wonderful guide for our Modena Food Tour on Friday morning, November 26. She was energetic and fun with a great sense of humor. As a native of the area, she was also to provide many insights into food and culture. The tour itself included several stops in Modena's historic center, allowing us to enjoy a variety of local delicacies. There was no need for lunch afterwards! When in Emiglia-Romana again, would gladly take another tour with this company.

Simply fabulous!! Loredana was our guide and she was terrific. She taught us so much and gave us so much background, history and detail to everything. The Parmesan cheese, balsamic vinegar and all the other food was just delightful! The tour was not rushed, never boring. This tour group is top notch! If you’re in Modena, make sure you get Loredana!!

Foodies, don't miss this! Our guide, Lore (sp?) was an absolute gem! She knows Modena and the region, including interesting historical and regional history. She really knows the food and loves to cook and share her rich culinary heritage. The highlight of our trip to Italy!

What a day! Our hostess met us in the piazza and showed us the best of Modena. We tasted cheese, local dishes, balsamic vinegar (I had no idea!) and wine. She also took us to the central marketplace, and showed us around all the vendors. Never rushed, always well-paced. My advice: skip breakfast! You won't be disappointed. Book now!
