Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a short stay in Parma and decided on a walking & tasting tour of the old city.

Alice Rossi was a terrific guide. She seemed to know every shop owner as we walked the city.

Knowledgeable about the history of the city and makes the history interesting. Alice is smart, funny and made the tour a delight.

We have been to many parts of Europe and Italy, in particular. We have done many tours but this one was exceptional!! Alice was the most personal and knowledgeable guide we have ever found in our travels. Her attention to detail is without peer! Her knowledge of each place we visited was impeccable. This is must do tour in Emilia Romano! A memory we will never forget and the highlight of our 3 week trip!

Fabulous tour with Alice! Her knowledge and passion for the region gave me a whole new understanding and appreciation of parmigiano reggiano, balsamic and prosciutto. She also explained a lot of the history and traditions of the area. Lunch was fantastic and delicious too!

I was travelling solo and joined a tour with another couple and Alice made us all comfortable and took us on an amazing food journey. Definitely a top highlight of my month in northern Italy.

If you're in the Emilia Romagna region, Alice is the guide to go to. Excellent experience and I will book with her when I return.

Our family of 6 spent a wonderful day touring Parma and the surround areas with Alice Rossi. She is truly one of the most informative, helpful, intelligent and thorough guides we have ever had. She is also very animated and engaging! Our family consisted of three men and three women aged 60's to 20's and she was able to capture everyone's attention and interest for the entire day, which is no small feat. If you want to have the experience of a lifetime in the Emilia Romagna region of Italy, a day with Alice Rossi should not be missed. We spent our last day in the area with her and we ended on a high note. I can not recommend her enough!!!

First off, my delay in getting this review out is in no way a reflection of the time we spent with Alice. It truly was one of the highlights of our one month vacation in Europe. From the beginning, Alice's communication was perfection in helping us to plan the perfect day. We started early in the morning at a Consortium Dairy to see the whole process of Parmigiano Reggiano production which included tastings. Then off to a family Prosciutto producer to see its production from start to finish. The Leporati family was so gracious and welcomed us into their home for prosciutto tastings. From here we went off to a wonderful lunch with Alice who translated the menu, offering suggestions for both food and wine. Our day concluded at a winery where Balsamic is produced in the most traditional way. I cannot express in words how wonderful our day with Alice was. Her knowledge, enthusiasm, and her desire to educate others is truly contagious! As others have stated she truly makes you feel as if you are a friend for life and we can't wait to return to spend more time in the beautiful Emilia region. There truly is NO ON ELSE you should be booking your time with!

If you are interested in the cuisine of the region, it's history and its ingredients, I cannot imagine a more satisfactory guide than Alice Rossi. She worked with me patiently by email to craft the perfect two days for my wife and I. And we are still processing the sites and the tastes and the history. I cannot recommend Alice highly enough.

We joined Alice for a morning walking tour of Parma.
It was nothing short of excellent.
We learnt so much of the history of Parma and of course we also tasted so much delicious food from a number of local specialty stores.
Alice was a wonderful guide and host.
The food was absolutely amazing!
We will definitely recommend Alice to anyone visiting Parma.
Thank you Alice.

molto molto bene!

This may well have been one of the best days of touring that we have enjoyed in Italy on this trip. Alicia made our entire day special from early morning until late afternoon, with customized visits to a small farm producing DOP Parmigiano Reggiano, a family owned salumificio where we learned the intricacies of prosciutto di Parma, and finally a producer of fine traditional balsamic vinegar of Reggio Emilia.
And in addition to the tastings that we enjoyed at each of these visits, the day even managed to include a wonderful lunch to enjoy more of the foods and wine of the area. We so enjoyed sharing in Alicia’s enthusiasm, her obvious love for this wonderful part of Italy, and her extensive knowledge of all the food and wine here so special.
We look forward to a return visit in the near future for further exploration with Alicia‘s guidance.

Alice is wonderful! We first met her a few years ago in Parma. She gave us the best tour. When I knew we were going to Bologna, I immediately contacted her. She met us there and again gave a wonderful tour. If you are anywhere in the area, contact Alice. You will be so happy you did. Once you meet her, she is a friend for life.

A perfect day with Alice! She was THE BEST guide for our first (and best!) day in Emilia Romanga food tour. She has such a detailed understanding of the food and history of this amazing area and it came to life for all of us (5 adults....family and friends). And the lunch and wine at the Tomas Setti winery made it extra special getting to interact with Giuseppe! Thank you Alice for a perfect Day!
