When my husband & I were planning our trip to Tuscany, we were hoping we could incorporate a food tour into our schedule...and we were so glad that there was availability for us in this particular tour! We had a very full day, starting early at a farm to learn about how parmigiano reggiano is made (literally, they walk you through the process & you get to see all the steps along the way), as well as enjoying an amazing breakfast spread. From there, you travel to a balsamic vinegar "factory" where you learn all about the heritage and love that goes into making real aged balsamic vinegar. Next is a prosciutto "factory," with all the different ages of prosciutto on site, and a fantastic tasting (literally so much to sample...I've never eaten so much prosciutto in my life). Last, you go to a fabulous restaurant in the countryside, and just the views alone are amazing, never mind the lunch. I won't spoil it, but this will be a meal you will always remember.
Thank you, Alessandro, for your amazing knowledge and hosting skills, and for sharing this slice of heaven with some very grateful Americans.

fascinating visits to cheese, balsamic and ham producers with an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide, followed by an excellent lunh in the mountains. A thoroughly good introduction to artisam products. I particularly enjoyed watching the 'birth of a cheese' (parmigiano reggiano) as they skilfully rescue the chhes froma vast vat of milk

As major foodies, we wanted a tour of Bologna's food producers that really took us off the beaten path and this did not disappoint with visits to family run DOP producers for Parmigiano Reggiano, balsamic vinegar and prosciutto. Alessandro, our host and guide is the perfect combination of energetic passion and great insider knowledge. As he likes to say - we met as guests and left as friends. Ps: also a bravo to his second-in-command in training Alessandro and our driver Marco. Thanks again and we'll be back.

Outstanding day spent with Allesandro visiting Parmigiano, Balsamic and Parma ham factories. #DOP This tour was well organized, informative and above all else fun. I think I am still full from the million course delicious meal we were served at the end. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone in Bologna. Grazie mille Allesandro.

We had an amazing tour right from the initial booking ( great communications!) to being picked up from the hotel by Marco to a full day of learning, tasting and laughing with Alessandro! Alessandro was very knowledgeable, entertaining and passionate about his job. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and food tour! Highly recommended.
