The Amarone day trip is a MUST for wine lovers. Mario picked us up in Venice and drove us to two of the nicest wineries my wife and I have ever been to. Mario was a wealth of knowledge and tasting the wines with him as he taught us about each was an amazing experience. The wine was so good we had a case of it shipped back and look forward to getting another case soon. Not only was the wine fantastic but the lunch Mario took us to might have been my favorite meal in Italy. This trip was worth every dollar and I hope to do it again when I return to Italy.

Rachel is amazing! She met us at the train station and took us on an interesting and fun tour of Padua. Rachel is very knowledgeable and is eager to share all that she knows of Padua! We took a 3 hour walking tour of the city and visited all the major sights including the terrific food markets. Along the way we sampled great cheese and a piece of fruit. Rachel was extremely informative. When we told her we were staying by the Rialto Bridge in Venice she texted us about a great
cheese shop with recommendations as to what cheeses to buy, told us about an amazing store that sells unique Murano glass jewelry, and a shop that makes the most tasty sandwiches, all close by. She also recommended a restaurant in Padua where we had the best pizza ever! We heartily recommend Rachel for a historic and interesting tour of Padua!

Spend a great day in this gorgeous city. Just whetted the appetite for a long weekend stay. From the coach journey to the boat trip into St Marks Square, followed by 5 great hours sight seeing and shopping and shopping. Our guide from Lagoturist Gabrielle was excellent, great knowledge and there when needed. Cannot wait to return.

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
