A Dream of a day
Let’s take you to meet the makers
When you arrive at the Parmesan Cheese Makers workshop the copper vats are filled with the world’s finest milk… steaming, sending a glistening, sweet, cream dairy aroma into the air.
You’ll now discover how “the King of all cheese” is made in all it’s meticulous detail… grain by grain. It is prepared in the very same way just as the inventors the Benedictine Monks would have wanted… You’ll see first hand the “making”, the salt pools and the “wheel cathedral ripening rooms”, walls of cheese!!
Thousands of wheels resting in the same Mapled place until perfect.
The Parma Ham Tour
Just the sauntering drive through the regal Langhirano valley is enough to ignite your interest in the Ham makers workshops.
Probably the first thing you’ll notice is the cleanliness of the pristine workshops and the fantastic aromas that develop through each maturing hall, nook and cranny.
You’ll see them all.
You will learn some amazing secrets about the finest ham in the world.
Then you’ll taste them!!
it’s pretty amazing learning all the secrets from a dedicated local guide

Best we keep it secret until you receive your custom tour info pack.
The Balsamic Tour
Balsamico is the last unchanged 1000 year old treasure from medievil times. And with us you will walk through the ageing rooms and attic in a heavenly peak setting.
It is, we feel, simply the finest of the finest moments…
You’ll love sampling the delights and standing in the company of such history… and it’s all at your pace. This is after all, your well earned, special day.
Choose the best quality day with us.
SUMMARY OF THE DAY
NEWS – FAMILY & TOUR SAFE IN ITALY
TOURISTS BE AWARE – do not play the ‘grey areas’ in Italy
Do you really fancy being driven around under insured? Don’t risk your dream vacation tour.
The Polizia Municipale Parma are insisting No Tour Guides to Drive Tourists – some barely legit tour guides, like for example Food Tours in Parma, do drive tourists as shown in their TA reviews. According to the Drivers Association and the Parma Tourist board this practice is not legal as this is not covered under Social Domestic and Pleasure Motor Insurance and is required that driving of tourists only be done by NCC Licensed drivers. You risk being spot fined 1500 euros as happened this summer on several occasions in Italy for similar flaunting.
If you have an accident whilst being driven by a guide free or not you will not likely be covered for personal injury. An insurance company will assume that you are on a tour without proper cover and decline your claim.
