My family and I had an incredible time on the Emilia Delizia food tour. Our guide, Giuseppe, was fantastic - he was knowledgeable, friendly, and made us feel right at home. We loved the visits to the cheese and balsamic producers, and the truffle hunt was a unique and unforgettable experience. The lunch at the organic winery was one of the highlights of our trip, and we were blown away by the delicious food and wine. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for an authentic taste of Emilia-Romagna. Thank you for a wonderful day!
What a wonderful tour our Guide Paolo was wonderful it was like having a tour from a close friend or family member. From the dairy and Balsamic to our final brunch at the winery it was just a wonderful experience that I would recommend everyone do. I know that we return to Modena we will be looking to take another tour. Thank you for making it a wonderful and tasteful experience.
I visited the Food Tours with my wife, we were looking forward to this some time ago and I can state that this tour bring to us very interesting time and experience in spite of the fact that we departed from Milano by morning train at 5,50 am. Our guide was young man and we enjoyed all morning together talking not only about the parmazan, balsamic and parma ham. I really appreciate it. He was very communicate, his driving was safety, very polite. Parmazan farm - amazing, balsamic farm -
My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed the Foodies Tour, which included stops at producers of cheese, balsamic vinegar and cured meat. Paolo was an amazing tour guide – he's extremely knowledgeable, kind and a great communicator. We learned so much! It was really nice to be in a smaller group and most of the producers we visited were small so we were able to get a close up view of the processes. We'd highly recommend Emilia Delizia as this tour was truly authentic and a highlight of our trip!
thank you for the kind review
The tour of the Parmesan Reggiano cheese dairy, Balsamic Vinegar farm, the Parma ham and lunch at the organic vineyard was thoroughly enjoyed by our family of 4. Paolo was a gracious and knowledgeable host for the day and provided us with insights to the production of the cheese and balsamic vinegar which was enhanced due to his chemistry background. We would thoroughly recommend this tour to those interested in the specialities produced in the Modena region.
The group (and me) was VERY satisfied. We really enjoyed the Parmegiano Regiano which was interesting and we got to buy some delicate and cheap cheese, the same with the balsamico. The Ferrari driving was off course an experience for life. The Winery lunch felt very genuine and the people there was really welcoming and nice people. The genuine feeling there was however the big plus for us.
Paolo was excellent as our guide. He also felt very genuine. He did not talk just for the sake of talking, but when he had something to say he did it in a respectful and nice way. Everyone in the group really liked him.
I wanted to let you know what a great day we had this past Friday on our tour with Jacamo. (Probably not spelling it right) He was very nice and explained everything to us. It sure gives you a new appreciation when you are slicing cheese. 🙂 Our tour ended with him taking us to the vineyard for a tour and lunch and there, Paolo, the owner could not have been more nicer. It was a perfect ending.
Please let Jacamo know what a great job he did and how much we really appreciated it and his knowledge
Everything was very good!
Interesting stops at the food makers, and fun trying the cars.
We had a great day, everyone was super professional including Stefano, the factory tour was great. The truffle restaurant capped it off, was wonderful. It was great to get out of the city and into the countryside and meet lovely genuine people.
Thank you, leonie
