We had a lovely day on the Prosecco day tour. As there were four of us we opted for the private tour and everything went as planned. Mario was prompt in meeting us and was very informative.

We loved the first winery we visited. They were very welcoming and the prosecco was delicious. We ordered some prosecco to be delivered to our home and it arrived just over a week later....quicker than our postcards! The first winery also had a restaurant and that's where we stopped for lunch which was delicious and very filling. After lunch we moved on to the next winery which was bigger than the first. The scenery in the area is beautiful and it was refreshingly cooler than the heat in Venice.

I would recommend this trip to anyone wanting to explore the Prosecco region, we had a lovely time.. Thank you Mario!

Our day trip with Mario was the hi-light of our trip to Venice. Mario picked us up outside of Venice and educated us about the Valopilicella regions, wines and history of Verona. The two wineries we visited were exceptional as was the wine tasting and lunch. We would highly recommend Mario as a guide.

Five of us took a one-day private walking tour from Mario and Rachel while we were on a cruise and docked in Venice. It has to be one of the best tours and days we have spend throughout many travels. We were picked up by our ship and driven to Padua, where we saw detailed and informative tours of the Basilica, the Scrovegni chapel, the city and its markets and the university. Rachel spend the entire day with us and is a font of knowledge, plus she is fun and speaks flawless English (She is originally from Cleveland and spent over 20 years living in Italy. She took us to a great restaurant for lunch, and treated us to cocktails, coffee and wine. The tour included admission fees to sites we saw, as well as the food and wine, which many tours do not include. We loved the trip and the company!!!!

We went on the Alpine Cheese Farm & Wine Tasting Tour. We had Mario as our guide. He was so amazing. Very friendly and informative. My husband didn't want to do the tour but he did just to make me happy. After the tour that was all he talked about. He loved the fact that we were the only ones doing the tour because we had personalized tour. The cheese farm was the high lite of the trip and my husband even help the cheese master make some of the cheese. The experience was so amazing watching them make the cheese. The trip included eating at a local restaurant which was also fantastic. After that we went to the vineyard where we tasted different wines. Thank you Mario for a fun fill day
