    This was a great experience! The food was delicious. We received an appetizer, pasta, sandwiches, and dessert each at a different restaurant in Parma's city center. Alice was a fantastic local guide who taught us about Parma's history and traditional foods. The only downside is that it's a bit overpriced.

    The only thing more amazing than our tour guide Alice was the food we ate in Parma! Highly recommend!

    Alice was really helpful and informative. There was too much food to consume on the tour so it was great we could take the sandwiches away.
