As we went through the day, we were more than pleased with the food choices and wine tastings he took us on! The vineyard, restaurant and him were top notch!... More

Our tour guide, Mario Piccinin, proved to be an excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the wines we sampled(he is a certified sommelier and cheese expert) as well as the culture and history of the region. He was extremely personable and fun to spend a day with. After meeting him at the bus station in Venice we visited two wineries... More

My husband and I did the prosecco tour with Mario and had the most amazing day. Mario is so friendly and made us feel very comfortable. The scenery is absolutely beautiful! We learned so much about prosecco and were able to try several different types. We were able to purchase a few bottles for a very reasonable price. Leave room... More

We are experienced travelers who always choose to tour privately. Our day with Mario Piccinin was by far the best we have experienced. He was warm and friendly, knowledgeable, and thoroughly delightful. At each of the 2 wineries we toured we saw the winemaking facilities and were educated in the process of making Procecco. At the first winery we learned... More

Mario picked us up at our hotel in Padua last Saturday and took us to the Verona area for a wine tour. He explained about wine making in the car on the way there and assured us that no question would be left unanswered no matter how silly it may have been. We visited one winery in the morning, had...

Hi Mario, Thank you for a truly magnificent guided tour of Castello de Godego and Padua. We appreciated all the personalised information you had gathered before-hand to enable us to have such an informative and emotional day in both places. Your professionalism and relaxed nature added to the enjoyment of the guided tour. Highly recommended. Thank you once again.

We were in the Veneto for work and contacted Venice Day Trips for help organizing our free days. They suggested two city walks in Venice and Padova. Our guide Rachel showed us the main must-see sights as well as some quieter off the beaten path areas that we loved. We couldn't have done a fraction of all this on our... More

We booked 3 tours with Venice Day Trips: 2 full days and 1 half day. We stayed in Venice and Rachel met us for the morning for our Fundamentals of Italian course. What she taught us was extremely helpful during our 10 day stay in Venice. However, my favorite part of that day was being introduced to Spritz & The... More

I was lucky enough to get Mario P through an agency. He was so good that I requested him again for my most recent trip to Venice. He is so knowledgeable, and teaches you so much in his beautiful, friendly way. I highly recommend him!
