One of the Best Tours ever - Thanks to Rachel and Mario

The tour was well planned and executed. Mario and Rachel were extremely knowledgeable and provided an experience that will last for a life time. The tour of two different wineries was an interesting comparison of same wines but different in nose and taste. The lunch at a local restaurant was superb...their local meats and pasta were outstanding - the dessert was exceptional. We plan to go back for a return visit. I consider them “new friends” in our experiencing the world. The personal services made our trip stress-free. The expense was high, but the experience was worth it!!!

Wonderful Prosecco Tour and Tastings

Mario, our guide was great. We visited 2 different vineyards with guided tastings of 5 Prosecco types at each. Beautiful lunch at a family run agriturismo with all ingredients sourced from their own land. Mario was friendly and very knowledgeable. A highlight of our trip to Venice.
