Lisa did a wonderful job teaching us about the cheese and ham. The tour was fun and a highlight of our trip to Italy. Would recommend this tour to anyone and Lisa was a fabulous guide.

Thanks again to Anna and the Maestro team for arranging the cheese and prosciutto tours. We booked last minute, literally the evening before for a private tour, and we were accommodated. It was delightful and the kids enjoyed and got a lot out of it as well. Lorenzo the

This was well worth it. The bus was cool, comfy and secure. Our guide was knowledgeable and relaxed, answering our questions as we had them. The tour of the Parmesan producer was great. It was clearly craft and artisan and I left with great respect for the family and farm. The

The tour was ok nothing terribly special as we had done a tour in Modena the day before which was really special. Maybe Maestro could offer smaller groups and slow down the pace of the day. Lunch was pretty much the same cold cuts as we had the day before and I was expecting

Responded 23 May 2019
Dear Sir/Madam, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience during the TastyBus tour. I am sorry to hear the tour did not meet your expectations as we are committed to providing personable, fun and informative experience to our customers. For this tour, we have a max of 20 participants in a group that is mentioned on the booking platforms. During the light lunch in a local parmesan trattoria, we offer typical cold cuts of our land together with local pasta tortelli d'erbetta and sweets. It's probable you tried similar cold cuts in Modena as culinary traditions of these two cities are very similar and yet we mention in the tour description that during the lunch you'll try the local specialities. I would be very grateful to know when did you join the tour and receive more details on my email rossella@maestrotravelexperience.com in order to understand how can we improve our service or clarify the expectations from the tour for our future customers. Sincerely yours, Rossella Bassani
