We chose the tastybus for one day tour in Parma. It was so nice, Monica was always enthusiastic during the travel. She explained in easy words so it was nice to understand although we did not have any background regarding the gourmet in Parma. Also, since moving one to another by bus, it was easy to deal with under the hot weather. If I visit Parma once again, I will definitely choose this tastybus.

The tour overall was excellent with the exception to the visit to the Parmesan factory which was a little disappointing mainly due to the shape of the processing area of the factory. Not all the tour members could hear or see. Either a different factory or smaller groups would solve this issue.
Both the Parma ham factory and the Balsamic vinegar factory were excellent and the tour guide had a very good knowledge of processes as well as a good relationship with the factory owners/workers.
The booking process was seamless and the tour is highly recommended.

Lunch was so lovely- all home cooking, hand made pasta, I just wish I didn’t eat that many Pama cheeses & prosciuttos before lunch
