Alex led our group on a family hike through Mossano and to visit a cave that was once inhabited by Neanderthals. He enhanced our experience with talk about the history and cultures of the area as well as the geology and ancient peoples. Highly recommended!

We spent a full day with Alex, hiking around the Mossano hills, just south of Vicenza. Our time together was a wonderful combination of physical activity and interesting sites that included old mills, beautiful nature trails, ancient caves and a family owned restaurant/farm where we enjoyed a delicious, multi-course lunch. Wine included! We've been on hikes in many foreign places, but this one was truly unique in terms of the diversity of topics and time periods (pre-historic to present) covered. Alex is an amazing guide: prompt, friendly, articulate, very knowledgeable about history, the environment, food and agriculture. He is passionate about all of the above and uses that energy to create meaningful experiences for his clients. We enjoyed our conversations with him throughout the day and especially appreciated learning more about the area from a local guide. Leading up to our day, Alex communicated clearly and in a timely fashion, always working to understand what we hoped to see and do. If you are looking for a unique experience while in the Veneto region, Alex is your go to guy. We recommend him and would tour with him again, in a heartbeat! Mille grazie, Alex!

Alex took me and my extended family (party of 16 ages 2 to 60 years old) for a day trip around Venice. We had an amazing day with lots of smiles. It was super hot the day we went and Alex was completely flexible with stopping multiple times for gelato and water. In addition, we were able to see a glass blowing factory off the beaten path in Burano. Alex is one patient guy as he catered to everyones needs. For example, one person wanted to go an old book store, while someone else wanted to shop... Well, Alex knew right where to take them all :)

I was lucky enough to find Alex free on a last minute trip to Veneto. I was in Vicenza, was flying out of Verona late in the evening, and wanted to see some of the countryside on my way to the airport. Alex is great at discovering what kind of traveller you are (I wanted to ride in the car to wine, food and Lake Garda, super chilled, no rushing from one place to another) and compiling a suitable itinerary. We had a fabulous day. I totally recommend Piovene Porto Godi, the little place Alex took us for a 'workers lunch' (much needed after vino at noon!) Lake Garda and the town of Sirmione were gorgeous and we finished up in perfect time to get me to the airport for my flight. Totally recommend to anyone who wants the personal touch that you just don't get with big tours. I was traveling alone and felt totally at ease with Alex.

We went to Alpacas and lamas hike. Our highlights tour begin with our guide Alex, who led us on an adventure through the easy trails to get to the Alpacas farm, he was very informative, fun, we took a coffee break than we hike with alpacas, awesome experience for my husband and I. The mountains have the most beautiful view. I highly recommend this tour to anyone.
