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.

If you ever want to experience what Emilia Romagna has to offer, Artemilia Tours is where you should start.

We booked the Parma Hillside Private Food Tour and were not disappointed. Our guide Michelle made us immediately feel comfortable and easily switched between Italian and English to accommodate our family (travelling with our teen daughters who understand but do not speak Italian fluently).

From the time we initially booked, I knew we were in good hands. Michelle reached out immediately to discuss a convenient meeting point in Parma, accommodating all our requests. I requested a hilltop lunch be added to our base tour and without hesitation, Michelle made it happen. She brought us to a wonderful restaurant with magnificent views of the Parma valley. Simply gorgeous!

Michelle guided this tour with passion and kept us informed and entertained throughout the day together. Her knowledge of the region and in this case it’s amazing food heritage, was simply amazing. And yes the food tastings throughout the tour were delicious 😀

I would highly recommend Michelle and Artemilia Tours if you want to experience what Emilia Romagna has to offer.

Michelle was absolutely fantastic. We took the train from Milan to Parma and they switched their pick up and drop off location for us to the train station. It probably added 45 min Rita for the tour. She is the most passionate and informative guide. We asked A LOT of questions and she knew all the answers. She clearly loves her city and it shows. Such a nice and fun person to spend the day with!!! Guido the driver was fantastic too on very very skinny roads!

Dear Renae, I really don't know how to thank you for your ever so kind words! It was a pleasure to help you arrange another meeting place. Thank you for your kindness and sympathy and for all the stories you wished to share. I hope to meet you with all your children soon here in Emilia! A warm hug from Parma, Michelle

What a powerful experience!
Michelle of Artemilia, our lovely guide. Outstanding competence and limitless passion for the arts, architecture, history and gastronomy of Parma.
My children and I have visited local producers of Parma’s treasures: Parmigiano Reggiano, Prosciutto di Parma and traditional Balsamic Vinegar.
We have met authentic Masters at work! They welcome us, showed us the production process and, of course, guided us through a delightful tasting of their finest products.
We have all fallen in love with Parma and we certainly will see Michelle again for more!

Excellent tour.
We had a morning in Parmigiano-Reggiani factory. It's was great. Amazing and informative to see the cheese making in progress. The salting room, nurturies and maturing caves. We got lucky a had a chance to taste Fresh Ricotta cheese 😊 it's not made every day.
Afternoon in Antica Corte Pallavicina ... The Culatello museum. We got to find out about the history of the castle, region, black pigs, culatello and the Maestro Guiseppe Verdi. It's located in beside Po river in secluded fairy tale location.
We got to taste all the cheese's, meats and salami.
Thank you Michelle we couldn't think of better tour.
😊😊😊
