I cannot say enough about this tour!  We were looking to do something relaxing after our cruise and this was just perfect.  Our room was actually an apartment in a small villa and we had loads of space.  The breakfasts and dinners were delicious!  We loved all of the activities that included a Prosecco winery visit, cooking class, a visit to a castle and we even learned how to make gelato.   Our guide Mario was fun and very helpful. He made special arrangements to pick us up at our hotel outside of Venice on the first day and consistently went out of his way for us

My friends and I were looking for a "foodie" day from Venice. Our concierge suggested this company who specializes in wine and food tours.
Our tour was amazing! We visited a small dairy farm way up in the hills and learned how the locals make cheese. Our guide, Mario, translated and was very well-informed. After a huge lunch we visited a Prosecco winery. A great escape from sweltering Venice! A must do if you are cheese and wine fans.

Begrudgingly accommodated my wife and her love of Prosecco and booked this tour. Honestly, I never really liked Prosecco. I AM CONVERTED!!! Mario picked us up in Venice and drove us to two wineries and a trattoria for lunch for a full day of information, drinks, and food. We could not have asked for more. We were so pleased with this tour. The wine was so exquisite we came home to the US with multiple bottles. The wineries were small and the owners were VERY proud of their craft. Mario made it very clear that we were there to see the vineyard and the winery and taste but that we were under no pressure to buy. This set us very much at ease. We felt as if we could simply taste the wine, listen to the process and enjoy a fantastic day away from the city. Mario is incredible! A trove of information. Easily one of the best tours I have ever done. Thank you Mario!

Mario was outstanding! This was an excellent private tour of the Italian countryside. We visited an incredible cheesemaker, Malga Barbaria, and experienced 1st hand what their life is like. Plus the views from their mountaintop cheese shop were spectacular. What really made this day special was the amazing knowledge of our guide, Mario. We believed Prosecco is like cheap champagne but his Sommelier skills have changed our opinion, and now, we are completely hooked. Mario also setup a private tour with a splendid guide of the Castello Brandolini. It was terrific. I will tell all my friend visiting Venice to treat themselves to Venice Day Tours. It was a great perspective that took us out of the city and into another world.

My husband and I did the Amarone Wine Tour while on our honeymoon in May. We had an amazing time touring two vineyards and eating at a local restaurant. Mario was extremely personable and knowledgeable. We learned about the local culture, wine and food. We recommend this tour without hesitation!
