A Parmigiano Pilgrimage
Laura offers an engaging and entertaining tour sure to delight any foodie. To say this was a highlight of our trip is a simple fact. Laura’s territory is the capital of Emilia Romagna’s “Food Valley”, and she shows it off effectively.

The three venues she chose were all wonderful, and she cheerfully helped us pack the 185 Euros worth of Parmigano-Reggiano we bought into our roll-aboards in the cheese facility’s parking lot. Laura, you’ll be happy to know that every bit of it, along with two bottles of Marco’s balsamic vinegar, made the trip safely all the way back to Birch Bay, Washington State.

Laura adjusted her schedule to pick us up early, get us to the cheese facility in time to watch the charming “Big Cheese” and his two sturdy assistants process some Parmesan, and finally to drop us at the train station in time for our 2:30PM train after a delightful lunch.

Laura is fluent in English, she possesses great knowledge tempered with a good sense of humor, and she made our morning with her fly by. We highly recommend her services as a guide to anybody interested in a personalized tour of one of the world’s food capitals.

Amazing experience!
We explored Parma: it’s Parmesan cheese, ham, and balsamic vinegar. It truly was the highlight of our trip to Parma (and one of the best things we’ve done in Italy). Laura was responsive and flexible, and extremely nice and knowledgeable. This tour is a must for those who are into food and want to understand the rich culture and culinary practices that characterize this very charming city.

Perfect addition to our trip!
Dec 2019
Laura was amazing and this was a perfect find. She was so sweet, super knowledgeable, and clearly had an inside connection to all the producers that we visited (which I loved). She easily accommodated finding a lunch restaurant with gluten-free options for me too. This was one of the highlights of our trip - thank you Laura!

Excellent tour for our little group
Nov 2019
Laura was an excellent tour guide and we really enjoyed seeing the local, family/coop run producers. We loved seeing the cheese and balsamic production, but felt a little sorry for the business that does the meat curing. It all looked really good and what we tried was very tasty, but we were traveling a lot couldn't bring meat back to the US with us (and we also prefer cheese). The cheese & balsamic was amazing!

Hi 708marck, thank you very much! Yes, I know that bringing meat to the US is not possible, unfortunately! Anyway, I'm happy you enjoyed the tour! All the best to you and your little group, Laura

Authentic!!
Oct 2019
Our family group of 7 adults had a wonderful time with Laura as she opened our eyes to the amazing processes of making cheese, balsamic vinegar and Parma ham. Some of us grew up on a dairy farm that provided milk to make cheese but we had no idea of what went on behind the scenes after the milk left our farm. We got to taste various ages of cheese and were able to purchase cheese. The balsamic vinegar winery visit was interesting and educational. We were able to purchase the product but at the cheese factory and the winery, we did not feel obligated or pressured to buy anything. Then we had an over-the-top lunch. When the waitress brought out 2 plates of ham/salami samples for our group of 8, we thought that was generous. But we all got a plate of meat. And then pasta, bread and wine. Wonderful. The parma ham tour was great also. Laura is super accommodating--she met us at the train station (we were late because we caught the local instead of express train from Florence) and was only concerned that because we were late, we might miss seeing the Parma cheese process. She answered all our questions and clearly enjoys her job and knows what she is talking about. We felt like we saw authentic, actual, working establishments and not set ups for tourists. Thinking about our 8 days in Italy--this was number 1.

Amazing, intimate tour with local producers
Oct 2019
We truly enjoyed this small tour of some local producers of salumi, cheese and balsamic vinegar makers around Parma. Our tour started with Laura picking us up in her car at the train station. My boyfriend and i were the only people on the tour (Laura only works with one group per day), and she met us at the train station right when our train arrived. She also allowed us to store our bags in her car for the day, since we were only in Parma for the day.
Laura is very personable and knowledgeable - she is a Parma native and local resident, and knows a lot about the area! We were able to go to 3 producers and see the products being made right in front of us - and we were also able to try some of their production! The cost of the tour also covers lunch at a local eatery, and we were able to try some pastas and wine native to the region.
It was a lovely day, and I would highly recommend Laura and her tour to anyone interested in learning more about where these foods come from!
