My daughter and I did the private tour. This was a fantastic day! What is better than cheese, balsamic vinegar, wine and lunch. Loved visiting and learning about all f the above. Our drive was also amazing! Highly recommend!
Amazing tour with the exception of the dairy farm.

I loved pretty much everything about this tour. The vinegar distillery and the winery were both amazing, but the cheese/dairy farm was absolutely horrifying. The facility was absolutely filthy, and was actually newer compared to others in the region. I would never ever go back there, but enjoyed everything else on the tour.

All in one day, a great private tour! Francesco, our driver was prompt and courteous, picking us up in a comfortable van and then out to the countryside for a dairy tour where we witnessed the cheese making process for Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, and of course a sampling of the different aged cheeses. Then it was off to a famed winery with a tour of their museum, then wine making, and then, of course wine sampling of Lambrusco. An extra treat was the car museum where the winery owner had sponsored one of the famous F1 race cars. Fabulous! Next it was to an intimate balsamic vinegar tour of the production - so informative by our lovely hostess. We sampled some wine, enjoyed a delicious lunch and then the balsamic vinegars. Delightful in every step! We never felt hurried along and we enjoyed our full day. Highly recommended.

Absolutely wonderful! It is definitely worth doing! Our driver Fransisco was very informative and great to deal with. This was a highlight of our Italy trip.

Awesome tour

Fantastic tour and we highly recommend it! Our driver, Francesco is friendly and tried to communicate with us despite not being fluent in English. The cheese, balsamic vinegar and wine tours were all informative and we learnt so much. Not once or anywhere, we were asked to buy anything. Finally, the lunch that was included for us was beyond our expectation. The restaurant had a great view, nice ambience and most importantly very delicious three course meal with a glass of wine.
