I never thought when I got to Rome I would end up taking more pictures of cheese than the Coliseum (with the underground tour no less), but Alessandro's enthusiasm & passion is completely contagious! The fact that he loves what he is doing, shows his artisans great respect for their work (& it is obviously reciprocated) comes across in every aspect of the tour - from the cheese makers to the prosciutto to the balsamic vinegar. And it's not just about the food itself (totally delicious) - he wants to educate you & you want to learn. But most of all he wants you to enjoy! And it's hard not to between all the sampling you do, culminating in a lavish & extensive "lunch" at a beautiful countryside vineyard. WARNING: DO NOT MAKE DINNER RESERVATION FOR THE DAY OF YOUR TOUR!!! Is it a little pricey? Yes, but you couldn't buy the meal for that price, let alone the experience & education. Well worth it & we would do it again in a heartbeat.

I can't recommend this more highly. Not only educational but lots of fun. The parmigiano reggiano factory was the most amazing! You can see true artisan cheese makers in action. The balsamico tour will give you new appreciation of the time and energy needed to produce a single bottle. Finally the 'light lunch' is perhaps the best Italian meal I have ever experienced. But the very best part was our host - Alessandro. He has the amazing ability to entertain and educate. He truly made this experience special.

This tour is action packed with Alessandro at the helm. You get tons of info, but in an interesting way. He captures your attention and makes all of it fun, fun, fun. Not to mention the 7 course meal at the end in a beautiful Italian countryside restaurant...you would never find on your own in a million years. The limoncello made with cream was to die for. About 12 people on this tour picked up at our respective hotels driven in comfortable vans.

Food lovers this a must.
The Parmigiana reggiano factory amazing, balsamic vinegar very surprising and tasty, of course prosciutto Parma yum yum.
Lunch afterwards wow huge you won't eat dinner that night.
I would highly recommend this tour and I would do this again.
Thanks Alessandro for an amazing day.

I absolutely loved this tour. Allesandro was incredibly informative, amusing, and just completely wonderful. There were about 10 people in the tour, and even though I didn't know a single person at the beginning of the tour, they were like old friends by the end! I think there's something special about this tour that attracts people who want to have fun. As many of the reviews have noted, be ready to eat a LOT of food throughout the day. Don't even think about turning anything down - they won't let you - just enjoy all the food and all the wine.
