“We enjoyed the wine tour immensely”
Reviewed 3 May 2011

Our tour guide Mario was prompt, very knowledgeable and friendly. We visited two vineyards and enjoyed a fabulous private lunch in a beautiful restaurant. Mario chauffeured us around northern Italy, we enjoyed seeing the various towns. We sampled many white and red wines, the vineyard owners were very friendly, and answered all of our questions. We were not pressured to buy anything from either vineyard; but we did purchase some to take home. We only wish it hadn't rained the previous three days so we could have walked though the vineyards.
We definitely recommend including this tour as part of your vacation to Italy.

“Absolutely wonderful experience”
Reviewed 3 May 2011

Mu husband, Dan and I spent 2 wonderful weeks in Italy and this was one of the high points! Mario picked us up at the hotel and transported us to the venician countryside where we visited 2 local vineyards! We were given a tour and then the tasting began--outstanding!! Their wine and olive oil is made from the grapes and olives grown right there and you can tell!! We had a beautiful lunch in a local restaurant and visited another family run vineyard---the Prosecco is the best I have ever had! Afterwards he dropped us at the train station for our next stop. Mario was a delight and we really felt we had experienced the local flavor. We are sending some good friends to him this summer and when we return to Italy--it will be on the top of the list!!!

“Beautiful country with knowledgeable guide”
Reviewed 3 May 2011

My wife and I wanted to take a wine tour while in Italy. Since our stay in this beautiful country was limited to Rome and Venice, we decided to take a chance and travel with Mario out of Venice through the Euganean hills. We are so glad we did. It was one of the highlights of our European vacation. Mario was very knowledgeable about the countryside, vineyards and the wine. The area is very beautiful and the stops along our route were very accommodating. Highly Recommended.
