My wife and I spent a week in Venice this past May. When I inquired about a side trip to Padua Mario was extremely accommodating and proactively made recommendations for our day trip to Padua. Our guide was Silvia and she made the three hours fly by as we visited the Scrovegni chapel, Padua University, and St. Anthony's. We capped... More

Coming from the famous wine area of Sonoma County in Northern California, my wife and I were very interested in visiting the Prosecco region of Northern Italy. Not having a car, we decided to call Venice Day trips, for a personal tour of the Valdobbiaadene wine growing area. Mario picked us up in Treviso, and drove us up to the... More

Top marks for our Prosecco Tour led by Mario. It was quite a long drive away from Venice to the first winery but Mario gave us an introduction/history of Prosecco which helped. The first wineary felt quite a small operation. Family led, well organised and we got to taste 6 different types of Prosecco. Then came lunch, with was the... More

Yet another wonderful day with Mario.4 of us shared the Cheese and Prosecco tour. It was thoroughly enjoyable and very informative. Away from tourist Italy, we shared a day with wonderful artisans producing delicious Italian food and drink. Lunch with Martina in her family's small vineyard was a delight. Mario is very generous with his time and a charming man.... More

I have been looking forward to writing this review. We had a wonderful time touring the Amarone and Vapolicella wineries with Mario, our tour guide and Sommelier. Mario picked us up in Venice and on the drive to the wineries spent time explaining the special Amarone wine making process. This allowed us to really enjoy the winery, La Bignele he... More

We had a wonderful and very special day with Mario, first driving into the mountains to see and also to taste traditional artisan ricotta and aged cheeses being made. Lunch, which was enjoyed against a backdrop of vines, was cooked and served by the very modest and skilled Martina. Home produced and prepared italian country food at its best, all... More

I travelled to Venice in July with my husband on a cruise and researched an excursion of the city that was a mix of the must-see sights, plus things off the usual beaten path and something to give us a good overall feel of the city. Surfing the web I found the Venice City Walk through Venice Day Trips, that... More

No matter how many maps, excellent instructions and fine sense of direction you may have, you are going to get lost in Venice. I think that is part of the experience of being in Venice. We went on a three hour walking tour with a very knowledgeable and personable guide. We stopped for gelato and she was able to provide... More
