CHECK TRIPADVISOR OUT – 

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 the other creative things, including our hidden gems and passion.

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

Food tours in Parma FWT


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

Even when we worked with Parma Golosa 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.

Food tours in Parma


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 

 

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!

TRULY THE MOST BEAUTIFUL Parma tour – with Food n Walk Tour bookings manager Nick

Angelo and Nick serve up a great day in the Food Valley

Welcome to real Italy … 

 

Angelo, Parma’s much mooted tour guide will ease you around this beautiful Italian gourmet food tour.

Food n Walk Tours Parma consist of superior quality self drive guided visits, to the production sites of some of Italy’s most famous DOP food products such as Prosciutto di Parma Ham, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese as well as breathtaking strolls through Traditional Balsamic Vinegar studios of Reggio and Modena.

 

THE BEST PARMIGIANO REGGIANO CHEESE TOUR

Parma FWT Parmigiano Reggiano cheese factory visit. Visiting a “Caseificio” is like going back in time. The “King of the cheeses” actually has very old origins and today, like 7 centuries ago, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is still made following the same traditional and genuine methods. Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is protected by the European Union and can only be produced in a restricted area, the so called “zona tipica”, which includes the provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, and a part of Bologna (left of the Reno river) and Mantova (right of the Po river). It takes about 2 hours to see the whole production, preferably early in the morning.

Ancelotti treats David Beckham to Tortelli in Parma…


.

David Beckham’s love for Tortelli di Parma

.

It’s pretty common knowledge to us that ex Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti (we drive by his house to FWT lunch), has a love of watching David Beckham tucking into Parma’s special food… Tortelli d’erbetta…

Yep it’s the same for my tourists as we take them to the same restaurant for a taste of the same delicious treat.

.

In fact Becks did come back last summer and they headed into the hills to one of Carlo’s other favourite restaurants … he has a few and it makes the now annual jaunt interesting for both apparently!

.

Here’s an extract from Ancelotti’s book, the_beautiful_games_of_an_ordinary_genius

BECKHAM Extract

Times Tables and Victory

.

.

Soccer is like having lunch with your friends: the more you eat, the hungrier you get. It’s the chef and the company that make all the difference; and I love the company of David Beckham.

.

One evening, while he was playing for A. C. Milan, I invited Beckham to dinner in a restaurant in Parma. By the end of the evening, he refused to leave the restaurant. I kept insisting, and he kept pleading with me, “Please, one more course.”

.

At one point I considered calling the police—handcuffs would certainly have stopped him from cramming any more tortellini into his mouth. In the end, I managed to convince him with these words: “Look, David, if we don’t leave this restaurant right now, I’m going to arrange another Spice Girls reunion tour.”

.

Fourteen seconds later we were back in the car, hurtling back toward Milan, with the radio off.

Open parenthesis: Let me say something about David. He was a big surprise to me, and a positive one. When he arrived in Italy, I expected to be dealing with a movie star homesick for Los Angeles, one of those players who thinks too much about gossip and fame and not enough about football. But I was wrong. He’s an impeccable professional, a workaholic, and an almost excessively well-mannered gentleman, with all the class of a very honest person. And then there’s the fact that he likes Emilian delicacies, which is obviously what matters most. Close parenthesis.

We never had time to go back, but one day I’ll return to Parma with my Chelsea players.

MORE ON EMILIA-ROMAGNA
FWT.com’s Insider Guide:

It’s Italy’s unsung region, yet its food has conquered the world—or at least the table. Think prosciutto di Parma, Parmesan, porcini, and half of all pastas known to man (just for starters). The source of its power? Po Valley dirt—fine, dense, almost chocolately , accumulated over millennia. Patrick Symmes feasts on the cities of the plain

The soil in the Arda Valley was, in the first days of September, already furrowed for a second crop. Everywhere we looked, right beside the roaring A1 or at some forgotten crossroads amid collapsing farmhouses, machines had plucked the harvest and turned the ground. Emilia-Romagna, the flat northern heartland of Italian farming, was combed into neat rows. Everywhere we paused, we stared in disbelief. Finally, outside the supermarket in Lugagnano Val d’Arda, I stepped in among the clods.

If you’ve ever gardened, you know the feeling I had. The dirt—millions of years of silt, washed down from the Alps and Apennines and deposited into this great bowl by the flooding of the Po River—lay meters deep. It is a rich brown humus, fine, dense, almost chocolaty. This stuff—mere dirt—is the building block of the wealth, strife, and food of the Po Valley, the great plain at the heart of Italian agriculture.

The story of Emilia-Romagna is the story of that soil, which grows the grass that feeds the cows that flavor the milk that makes the Parmesan cheese taste so good just down the road in Parma. This is the soil that sprouts the corn and wheat that fatten the pigs that become the ham that becomes prosciutto di Parma. This is the brown muck, fantastically productive, that grows the Trebbiano grapes, cooked down into the aged vinegar balsamico di Modena, in the town of that name, just another half hour along the A1. And beyond that, right down the curve of the immense plain—the largest flat place in Italy—all the products of this soil have been gathered into Bologna, one of Italy’s great, innovative trading cities, whose nimble-minded gourmets invented much of what passes for Italian food around the globe. Ravioli? Tagliatelle? Lasagna? Polenta? Tortellini? Half of all pasta shapes? All from Emilia-Romagna. If your mouth is not watering, stop reading here.

The soil next to the supermarket in Lugagnano wasn’t just brown and rich: It was practically alive, a tightly packed silt that the machines had turned up into chunks the size of dinner plates. I prodded one with my foot. “The size of dinner plates,” I said to my wife, awed.

“Bigger,” she corrected. Some of the pieces were the size of serving platters.

If you want to know how Emilia-Romagna has conquered the world, one table at a time, you need only look down.

We had rented a stone house in Castelletto, an obscure village high up in the Arda Valley. It proved to be a steep hamlet of stone houses, many empty, and about forty year-round residents, mostly old women. Ours was the only rental property in Castelletto, found online. It had good views, modern everything, and it rattled in the fierce mountain winds.

Our son, Max—a precious bundle, aged fourteen months—attempted his first steps in Castelletto’s empty playground. We took our first steps too: awkward greetings in Italian, and a quick scamper to the valley’s most famous site, the fortress town of Castell’Arquato. I struggled up the medieval keep with Max on my back, and we surveyed the views up the Arda—an ugly dam, and then the gentle Apennines, sharing a border with Tuscany. In the other direction was the great flat plain of the Po River.
