We had a wonderful time on The Tasty Bus tour . There was 6 in our group and our guide Eliza was first class . She had an in-depth knowledge of the cheese and ham industry in the area and could answer any question asked . We travelled out into the countryside from Parma to see the manufacture of Parmigiano Reggiano and up into the hills to see the production of the Prosciutto first Parma . And to top it all we got to taste everything . This tour is a “ must” if you are visiting the area.

We bought the full day tour (taken in early December 2019) with lunch included. Booking the tour online was easy. We were sent a couple of reminders when the tour date approached!

There was nothing we did not like about the tour. We saw and learnt a lot about the production of parmigiano reggiano, prosciutto and traditional balsamic vinegar. We also saw the countryside which was beautiful. Elisa, the tour guide, was not only fun to spend the day with - she was also knowledgeable, personable and excellent! Lunch was also excellent.

We highly recommend this tour! Buy it! Excellent value for money!
