Cinzia couldn't lead the tour but sent her friend, Paolo, instead. He was very informative, helpful n great company. I never felt rushed. The tours were very well presented with plenty of sampling. The places we visited were quite friendly and offered amazing products. I am so glad I splurged booking this tour as it was well worth it!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: A big thank from Paolo and I!!

This tour with Cinzia and Paulo was absolutely wonderful! The highlight of our 10 day Italy trip. They picked us up on time at our hotel and proceeded to give us a great tour both at the Parmigiano-Reggiano and Balsamic factories, as well as when we were in the car. There is so much to learn about that region (art, architecture, etc.) and Cinzia was a perfect guide to explain it to us/her enthusiasm was infectious. Paulo's explanations at both of the factories were intriguing as well. Take this tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Daunia, Paulo and I appreciated your great review (WOW!). Thanks so much !!!!

A great tour. Informative and fun. Cinzia and Paulo know the area and the industries we visited. We went to small venues that were intimate, quiet and nice. After the crowds of Roma and Firenze it was a pleasant change. A must do event of it's your first time to Modena.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We thank you so much!!! It was such a great pleasure ! Thanks again

Cinzia is a knowledgeable and charming guide. Her tour is interesting, informative and delicious. I heartily recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Sue !! It was lovely time with you
This experience was amazing! Our guide, Cinzia was exceptional. Her knowledge and itinerary were so far above expectations. The tour covered three very good foods/wines and the level of personalisation could not be beaten. At each place were treated like VIP's and had truly one-off experiences. Stefano, our driver was simply lovely and so courteous. The whole experience far exceeded our expectations. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending the tour and Cinzia. We would do it again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for your so kind review!! It was our pleasure to be with you and help you discover something extra of worth on your visit. We very much look forward to meeting you again. With kind wishes Cinzia and Stefano

Outstanding tour. Was on our honeymoon and wanted to see some of the food culture of Italy on a private tour. I highly recommend this as you get to see a little bit of everything in the heart of Italy's food center.

We had such a great day with Cinzia in the Emilia Romagnia area. She was very knowledgeable about each of our 3 stops, and was accommodating from the very first email. The 3 stops: Parmisiano Reggiano, balsamic vinegar, and proscuitto...all were excellent tours. Thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Catherine ! It was a great pleasure meeting you and your family.
Amy MartellUnited States
Great tour and great guide....we loved all the stops and felt that they were not touristy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much !
Our gastronomic tour of Modena was highly enjoyable and informative thanks to our lovely guide Cinzia, who organized the entire day. The tour offered a delicious sampling not only of the different products of the region but also the rich culture and traditions that have kept their industries alive all these years. We happily stuffed our purses with enough Parmesan cheese, balsamic vinegar and prosciutto to last us a whole year! But the memories we will carry home from that day will stay with us forever.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Perry , thank you so much!
