We really enjoyed it. It is as the other reviews says. Driver was nice and prompt, no talking. Elena was really a great guide!! She was knowledgable and lovely.
It's true you don't get a sample of the prosciutto from the factory, but right after they take you to lunch, where there is plenty.

A very informational tour on the processes involved in the creation of Parmesano reggiano cheese, Parma ham, and traditional balsamic vinegar. Our trip was provided by Food Valley, Elena being our guide. She was very enjoyable and knowledgeable. The factories were very welcoming. It would have been nice if water had been provided in the van. The van driver was prompt. However, there was no attempt at conversation for the hour trip from Milan & back. I realize he was not the guide but some information about the countryside might have been nice. If you are a foodie this is a great tour.
