Excellent food tour!
, Jul 2022
We had an excellent food tour with Paola. We was very knowledgeable and the food and wine we tasted were all great and very typical of the region. The trip to the market is not to be missed.

I highly recommend this food tour of Modena. Naturally, one highlight was learning about (and sampling) the balsamic that Modena is known for. But the cuisine of Modena is so much more than just balsamic. This tour gave us the opportunity to try lesser known items from Modena . One of my personal favourites was the food from the "market". For instance, I had some ricotta from the market that was unlike any I have ever had in Canada. Silky was exquisite. The tour guide was very good. She was entertaining and informative and she kept the tour on track while at the same time happily answering our many questions about Modena's cuisine and culture.

Informative and Fun Food Tour
, Apr 2022
Our tour guide, Lori, was very informative and provided us with a little bit of the history of Modena and then guided us through the market and local tastings. She was very knowledgeable about what ingredients and food are authentic versus what ingredients are from outside of the Modena/Emilia-Romagna area. We had a great time with her. We would definitely do a tour with Lori again.

Fantastic Tour !!
, Dec 2019
One of the highlights of our two week vacation in Italy! Our tour guide, Catrina was terrific! Very knowledgeable about fine food, wine, traditional balsamic and all things with great Italian Food !! Our tour included stops at the indoor farmers market in Modena, several restaurants, balsamic vinegar store, where we learned about real Balsamic and the loving process involved in making "real traditional" balsamic. Great Tour! Terrific Tour Guide. Grazie Mille!!
Don't miss this tour!

Christina was awesome. She is a local and took us to local places. IF you want to live a day like an Italian in Modena, do this tour. She was delightful, the places were definitely oft the beaten path, so no tourist traps. Don't waste time on a balsamic tour or a Parmesan tour - We were able to figure out how to buy cheese, taste different ages and sample balsamic from different processors - not just one when you are on a tour.
Modena und die Sinne des Geschmacks
, Oct 2021
Es war sehr schmackhaft und interessant die Spezialitäten von Modena kennen zu lernen. Der Haselnusslikör sehr fein der kleine Snack namens Niocco Fritto mit einem Cappuccino ist der Wachmacher des Morgens. Auch die Degustation des Balsamicoessig war ein spiel der Geschmacksnerven ich sag nur das was man in den Lebensmittelgeschäfte kaufen kann ist weit entfernt vom richtigen Balsamico.
