Long overdue review - my girlfriend and I visited Italy in September 2016. We had an amazing time with Mario tasting and learning about Prosecco. The tour included tastings at 2 family wineries and lunch at a local restaurant. Definitely purchase a case or two of Prosecco! It's worth the shipping fee. This was a highlight of our trip, and...

Had a lovely guided tour with Rachel. We arrived via train from Venice, and Rachel greeted us at the terminal. We walked the city and Rachel had a running commentary on the history of the city. WE had a chance to taste some local foods, and a guided tour thru St Anthonys (recommend). Would do another tour w/out hesitation!

My partner and I booked a last minute trip to Verona around Christmas time, and this was certainly the highlight of the weekend. The tour with Mario was truly unforgettable. He is an absolute gentleman, highly professional and knowledgeable about the region and all it has to offer. His choice of vineyards to visit and lunch venue were spot on.... More

My wife and I spent a wonderful day with Mario on his Prosecco Tour (out of Padua). He picked us up promptly at our hotel and provided excellent commentary all the way to the Prosecco Wineries. Then, much to our delight, Mario is not only a fine guide, but a trained sommelier! He conducted our tastings himself, along with the... More

my wife and I were on a much needed vacation touring italy. We made our stop and stayed at the Gritti Palace in Venice. After a day of touring Venice I thought it was nice but overrated much like the Gritti Palace. My wife and I decided to book a wine tour with Mario. It ended up being the best... More

We absolutely loved the market walk we booked in Padua just after Christmas. Our guide Rachel was really fun and informative and knew all the best parts of the market to show us. Everyone in our group – we were 4 adults – enjoyed the experience, especially all the lovely tastings (persimmons, cheeses, local prosciuto…). Had a glass of Prosecco... More

We signed up for this fabulous tour through International Kitchens. We scheduled the tour following a luxurious cruise on Regent Seven Seas. Our cruise terminated in Venice and after being totally taken care of by Regent, we had some concerns about meeting and transferring luggage from the cruise ship to the Land of Prosecco Tour. Mario and his American born... More

This really was the most fabulous day, one that myself and my friend will never forget because it really was just like being out for the day with another very well informed friend.
