Great tour, lots of fun and good food. Katarina was a friendly and knowledgeable guide and we visited places when the locals eat which was great for us.
Caterina, our guide, was fantastic. She took care of everyone’s needs and did a great job giving us many different tastes of Modena. I would take another tour with her anytime.
Great experience, Excellent guide, very friendly, good knowledge of the history of Modena.
Thanks, Catarina for taking such good care of us as we tasted our way through Modena! Like our experience with Taste of Bologna's food tour the day before in Bologna that we took, we so enjoyed learning about Modena and its food heritage. I have never tasted so much Balsamico!! And parmesan! The tour is small, which allows us all to enjoy the experience, and Caterina was informative, helpful in answering all our questions, and prepared a lovely picnic in the market so we could enjoy Modena's bounty. I highly recommend the tour if you love discovering towns through their food heritage! So well done! Thank you!
I really don't know where to begin. Thinking back to how amazing this tour was almost brings tears of joy. It was truly special. Caterina is an amazing guide and so enthusiastic about her job, the history of the area, the food and the culture. What makes it so special is that she is a local native to the area. She knows the ins and outs of everything Modena. I won't go into too many details about this tour because part of the experience is the surprise of flavors that you encounter. Cheese, fruits, coffee, pastries, wine, sandwiches, and balsamic vinegar. Caterina is a pro when it comes to balsamic and we were so so very lucky to have her educate us about it. Her excitement is extremely contagious and you can't ask for a better tour guide. When we go back to Italy (and we will) we will use Taste Bologna to explore more of their offerings around the region. Bravo on creating such an amazing tour. We can't wait for the next time! Ciao!
Riccardo was a wonderful tour guide! We definitely got our money's worth of delicious food, and we enjoyed our tour.
The guide Catarina was very nice! Funny and amazong tour! Thank you
Extremely friendly, knowledgeable guide. It felt more like a morning out with friends than a tour group. There were plenty of tastings with a great variety and progression from breakfast to lunch. The spots we went to were true local places. Could not have been better!
Lovely tour, I think we were a bit of a disappointment as we couldn't eat all the food!!! Loved Modena
Excellent guide, tremendously knowledgeable and a real passion for the area's history, food, way of life. Tried foods that were amazing and that you'd never normally try. A great experience.
The tour was fabulous! Our guide was spectacular sharing her love of the town, its history and traditions!! The food and drink was delicious, the tasting fun and informative. We would certainly return again in the future if we had the chance!
Our tour guide, Catarina (hopefully I spelled this correctly) was amazing! She was so friendly and informative, it was like touring around with an old friend. I will be recommending this tour to everyone I know who is going to Italy and I will be leaving you an excellent rating on Tripadvisor.
Our guide Riccardo was excellent, very knowledgeable. The food of course was what I can to try and I was not disappointed. :) Grazie!
Ricardo was fantastic, very good knowledge and the food tasting was exceptional!! Highly recommend!
We just loved our experience of Taste Modena. From first meeting the wonderful Catarina till the last taste of desert we enjoyed every moment. Catarina is obviously a lover of food and the Italian culture and is the perfect tour guide. We felt we were experiencing things unique to the tour, from the delicious Sobu to the vinegar tasting....hearing little bits of information about the people of Modena and the food. What a great market place! And the cheese, I have never eaten such young Parmesan. Thank you to Catarina, your enthusiasm is inspiring, you were a major factor in our enjoyment of the tour.
We had a great time on our Food of Modena tour. Our guide Caterina was friendly and knowlegable. There were only four in the tour which made it very personal and the food and wine tastings were god value. Modena was a great surprise to us. It was small but very beautiful with lots of foodie things to see and taste. If we had not booked the half day tour we would never have made it to Modena as it seems to be off the tourist path. Would recommend this tour, and a visit to Modena if you are in the area. Cathy and Eric (April 2017)
