One of the highlights of our time in Venice. My friend and I went on an all day trip with our amazing and very knowledgeable guide Mario to the Valpolicella region. We visited 2 small family run vineyards and tasted some excellent wine, along with a nice tour of each facility. Mario was the real gem in this trip. He... More

My partner and I went on a Prosecco Wine Tour with Mario while we were visiting Venice. It turned out to be one of our favorite days of the entire trip. The wineries visited were fascinating and hospitable and the lunch at the sustainable farm restaurant will forever be one of our favorite meals. And the wines we sampled were... More

Mario Piccinin took our party of 5 on a wine tour in Valpolicella that we will all cherish for the rest of our lives! We drove through the incredible Veneto countryside (chauferred expertly by Mario) and toured two wineries with a tasty lunch along the way. The scenery, food, wine and cultural experience was unforgettable. This experience was made even... More

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
