Mario is the most knowledgeable and genuinely caring person me and my fiance have ever had the pleasure of learning from. We had an amazing experience and discovered a world of wine that we had no idea existed. We plan on returning as soon as possible!

Our day with Mario and Rachel was amazing! Of our 4 days in Venice, this was by far the best! Mario and Rachel do an incredible job in setting up a day you will not ever forget! Our all-day tour was in the Friuli region. We toured 2 great wineries, tasted amazing and unique wines, and best of all, made lots of new friends for life! We are return customers from several years ago. You simply WILL NOT find a better wine experience in this area. Mario and Rachel certainly make the wine experience unforgettable, but the personal connection to them and the great winemakers you meet is impossible to replicate with other vendors. We will never forget our "dream come true" experience in Friuli! Thank you Mario and Rachel!

We booked two trips with Mario as he is a sommelier and wanted an expert to be with. The first trip was to the Prosecco area. We visited three family vineyards and got to meet the families and winemakers. Lunch was included at an Agriturismo that was charming and very local. They are only open on teh weekends, but because of Mario's relationship, they opened for us. We sat at park benches and had fresh pasta, cheese, salumi and dessert that was all freshly made/grown. Even the wine was made there. The second tour was in the Soave/ Amarone area and the tour that I would take again if I only had one day to go outside of Venice. Mario picked us up and helped us with luggage as he was going to drop us off at our hotel in Verona so we did not have to go back to Venice. This worked out perfectly for us. We had a delicious lunch at Porchetta and really loved all the wineries in this area. I would say this is a MUST DO TOUR. Rachel was very easy to work with before I booked anything and Mario was a gem to be with for two days.

My friends Jan and Bob made arrangements with Rachel for our tour. Rachel is the niece of a lady Jan plays golf with, I think. Anyway, Mario scooped us up at our hotel in Verona and the first vineyard we visited was in the Soave region. The vineyard had been a family run business for several generations and Sarah at the vineyard was our guide. We actually walked out into the fields and saw the grapes growing and Sarah explained planting, harvesting, and the basic agronomy of growing grapes. You could really tell that Sarah and her family are passionate about making really great wines. Our next stop was for lunch at a small family run restaurant on our way the second vineyard. As Hubby Steve says lunch was wonderful and one of the best meals we had during the trip. The second vineyard produced the Amarone wines. Emmanuel was our guide here and he is one of three brothers that own the vineyard. Again, as Emmanuel was explaining the processes for drying the grapes and making the wine you feel the passion for making great quality wines. Mario’s knowledge of wines and foods and his choice of vineyards for the day made this one of my favorite parts of our vacation. Thanks so much to Rachel and Mario for the wonderful day!

I cannot express how much we enjoyed the Prosecco Wine Tour in the spectacularly beautiful Valdobbiadene. Mario our guide was fabulous! He was extremely knowledgeable, engaging and very kind. We visited two family run wineries, had Prosecco tastings at each and enjoyed a delicious lunch at an Oesteria. We definitely developed our palates for the DCOG Prosecco. The customer service provided by Venice Day Tours was impeccable, including a pick up from the airport and a drop off to the train station at the end of the day. Mario even went out of his way to pick up another friend at the airport at the end of the day. We also had the chance to meet Rachel, Mario’s wife, in Venice for a coffee and an amazing view of Venice from the top of the Tedeschi Building. They are an amazing team and I would definitely use Venice Day Tours again.
