    Jihene was an excellent tour guide who helped us appreciate the local dishes in Parma. We thoroughly enjoyed all the food served from the Parma ham to the tortellini and gelato. On top of this, Jihene also took us around the city and shared the interesting culture and history of Parma.

    Alessia is a well informed, gracious guide, who provided us with a host of fascinating details about this FABULOUS/unique food region. We take part in food tours all over the world; this one was at the top of the list. A (very) full, progressive meal … excellent food and great value!

    This was a great experience! The food was delicious. We received an appetizer, pasta, sandwiches, and dessert each at a different restaurant in Parma's city center. Alice was a fantastic local guide who taught us about Parma's history and traditional foods. The only downside is that it's a bit overpriced.
