    Walking through 100s of curing hams was intense. Viewing the entire valley marking the DOP was impressive. Tasting the product-delicious!

    Picked up from our air bnb on time. Loved that it was a small group, felt like a private tour!! The tour was informative and the tasting was generous.

    Fabrique familiale superbe. Chance d'avoir été accueilli par la famille, d'une grande gentillesse. Très agréable. Enfants impressionnés et ravis. Attention : adresse VIATOR non indiquée, mauvaise info reçue pour nous qui a failli nous priver de ce moment superbe

    I highly recommend this tour and Mattia was an outstanding guide! He is knowledgeable, enthusiastic and was able to answer all of my questions! Fascinating industry, so much to learn! Fun, interesting and delicious prosciutto tasting!

    The tour was great! Seen the whole process and was able to taste some of the beautiful parma ham. Our guide Mattia was very informative and also gave us all the history of the actual valley and region of the parma ham. Also he English was very good and easy to understand

    Our guide, Mattia, did a great job! We were loaded with questions and he was very able to answer them, provide background information, and even give insights on why certain processes were done the way they were. We were amazed by the amount of work and the number of hams ‘hanging.’ A very eye opening and informative experience. On very small negative - it would have been nice to see the factory working, but we arrived during their lunch and missed the action. Dang! Nevertheless, it did not take away from a great day! Thank you, Mattia!

    Boeking werd lang geleden reeds bevestigd op de gevraagde datum, op het gekozen uur en in de gekozen taal. Toen ik enkele dagen vooraf Viator contacteerde voor duidelijkere info over het vertrekpunt ( Waar precies in Parma vertrekken we ?) , kon het ineens niet meer in de gevraagde taal en op het gevraagde uur. Het bezoek werd dan maar gecanceld. Jammer !!!!Terugbetaling van de kosten werd ons beloofd. We zijn benieuwd! De communicatie verliep ook steeds ih engels terwijl de voucher die we ontvingen in het NL was en het tel.nr dat ik ingaf ergens in Amsterdam ???????
