Dear Alex,
Anne and I would like to thank you for the most memorable tour we had around Modena in early April. First of all, thank you for making it so easy to arrange the trip. We had been struggling to find relaiable and
knowleadgable operators who could adapt to our schedule and wants, and you did that perfectly.
It really was a most enjoyable day and we learnt such a lot. The visits to Bio Hombre and Fabbi were so interesting, and we were particularly gladdened by the friendliness of the owners of Fabbi. It is certainly due to their enthusiasm that we were persuaded to buy (expensive) traditional balsamic vinegar, which is unobtainable in this country. Tasting it on our return, we are very glad we did! We were also impressed by the prices at the parmesan farm: at the airport, parmesan is 1/3 as more expensive. All our purchases arrived home safely and we have been enjoying them, as you can see on the photos here:
The lunch at the rural restaurant was definitely a highlight – watching workers and “suits” rub shoulders while eating the same food is an abiding memory of Italy.

With all best wishes

Judith and Anne
