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.
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!

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.
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.
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.
