2 years on – Ranked No1-2, 50+ strong reviews… help us just get better!

Tripadvisor is so important to us.  We value your feedback so let us know what takes yr fancy… and what doesn’t. We’ll be sure to fine tune your day.

Small stuff??… it’s what counts most and what we try hardest at.

 

CHECKING TRIPADVISOR OUT – HOW TO BEST ANALYSE TA REVIEWS

When I checked Food n walk tours I just felt there was that extra connection… that it wasn’t just an tour with a guide… I was right!

Recent Client quote during tour… it is about the most common observation shared with us.

Tripadvisor thank you!

It’s not just about volume of reviews with TA but other things, including Quality.

We have 55+ reviews just 2.5 years on – thank you all!

RECENT QUOTE….

His relationship with the people there is what really separates Nick as every one he works with, he has a real connection to. By the special treatment and abundant extra samples given, I’m 100% certain they treated us far better than the other tours that go through there.

 

But what are our reviewers really talking about?

TA RECOGNISE REAL QUALITY AND CARE

Our reviews talk about the sense of real quality, relaxation (never rushed) and richness of the day.

Not just that either – Tripadvisor regularly rank us 1 or 2 in Parma on the basis of what they determine as depth of service and quality.

Health and hygiene are prime considerations that leave us out there in clear blue… 

CLIENT CARE – ATTENTION TO DETAIL


Client Care is the Holy Grail for us – we are passionate about it.  

Even when we worked with ParmaGolosa we took our clients on the road like they were our very own – we took them to extra destinations that would have freaked the management out!

Why?  Because it is so important (to us) that every client feels this trip is the highlight of their vacation or even more.  We still do go the extra miles – we add in unlisted specials so that the competition can’t emulate us.

And we reflect that genuine energy and passion in everything we do for you. To the moment we say goodbye.

COMPARING US WITH OTHERS

We know all the companies on the Google search for Food Tours in Parma.  We know the cheap and the cheerful too.


With us of course we could claim to have better destinations.  A better cheese maker with wider range of tastings than any other tour…

– A better pristine ‘food safe’ Parma Ham maker with all the rooms open (health and your big vacation dream day are a huge responsibility we take completely on-board for you).  And the best tastings onsite… not many agencies offer that special treat.

A paradise Modena Balsamico loft that is genuinely 300 years old and spotless.  

A selection of truly fantastic Gourmet lunch destinations and choices, tops our best in Parma roster.  Smorg tastes, massed cold cuts and mixed fresh Porcini and black truffle pastas or tortelli for less than 26.00 per person all inc.

CUTTING CORNERS?  NOT FWT

CHECK OUT DRIVING ISSUES 

In the past 18 months Parma Police have stopped guides illegally transporting clients in-car.  The day is ruined and the fines are enormous… it’s not an option.

Our advice is to hire a car and we’ll take you on safe country roads for an easy drive around tour.  We can help you hire a car for as little as 60.00 euros.

We do not charge extra fees for driven tours for special circumstance clients.

For elderly clients we can port between destinations FOC.

WE’LL GUIDE YOU THROUGH A BEAUTIFUL DAY

Truth is no one else has anything quite like our collection of destinations.

That’s why with 22 reviews Tripadvisor recognise us for what we are.

 

We’ll do you proud. It’s your amazing Italian food day, after all.

Great tours in Parmesan cooking room-

From the moment Nick came to ‘collect us’ -because we got lost, we knew we had the right guy! He brought us to watch and learn about the birth of Parmesan cheese. I wish that I could include the smells in this review! We ended the cheese tour in the shop dipping Parmesan in Balsamic and honey-stop drooling because it only gets better!

Best Things to See and Do in Parma, Italy: Castles, Museums, Wine Bars, and Stunning Countryside

Parma, Italy Isn’t Only Famous for Its Ham and Cheese, It’s Also Home to Beautiful Architecture and Centuries Old Churches and Palaces

Before I visited Parma, Italy, the only thing I knew about it was the ham my family and I ate on sandwiches. Famous for its ham, cheese and incredible cuisine, Parma is also known for its centuries-old churches, palaces and theaters and its 3,500 year history. Tourists flock to Parma to eat some of Italy’s best food, listen to world-class opera and, of course, to see Parma F. C. football matches. When my family and I were there, we did all of that and so much more.
Visit the Baptistery of Parma – If you enjoy beautiful and unique architecture, a visit to Parma isn’t complete without seeing the Baptistery of Parma – still considered one of the most important Medieval buildings in Europe.The Baptistery of Parma is a pink marble, octagonal-shaped building over 800 years old. Famous for its architecture, as well as its incredible frescoes and mythical animal statues, the Baptistery is home to paintings and sculptures by famous Italian artist, Benedetto Antelami, who was instrumental in designing the building. There’s a small entrance fee but it’s well worth the price.
The National Gallery – For art lovers, or those who appreciate history, the National Gallery should not be missed. It’s located on the second floor of the Pilotta Palace and is full of artwork from the 13th to the 19th centuries. The Pilotta Palace is quite stunning too.

Bardi Castle – There are several Medieval castles to visit in Parma, but Bardi Castle is one of the best. Its gorgeous location on top of a hill, looking out over a fairytale valley makes you realize what these amazing buildings were actually used for – protection and security. At Bardi Castle, which is still in superb condition, you can tour the castle and learn about how people actually lived, see the rooms they ate in, danced in, worked in. There’s also a lovely garden and don’t miss the small museum.

Drink Wine at a Parma Wine Bar – Famous for its food and drink, you have to spend time at a Parma Wine Bar. Not only do you get to enjoy a superb local wine, but the farm-style food many of the bars offer is inexpensive yet very tasty. We spent several nights sitting at one or more wine bars, as they’re a superb place to people watch, soak up the atmosphere and see what life in an Italian town is all about. You’ll find the best wine bars around Via Farini and Via Gramsci.

Visit Parma’s Beautiful Countryside – Parma is known throughout Europe for its lovely countryside, so don’t miss venturing out into it when you’re there. We hired horses one day at a local stable and took a short pony trek through the area, stopping off for lunch at a local cafe, drinking wine and eating farm-made sandwiches. Unbelievable. You can also hike, cycle, mountain bike or just take a leisurely stroll. It’s all accessible within a few minutes of Parma city limits. Your hotel reception can tell you the best places to see.
