Mario was genuinely one of the best people we have met on our travels! His kindness and easy demeanor coupled with his master sommelier certification made him the perfect person to spend a day with, tasting Prosecco and enjoying the countryside. He made us feel welcome and provided extensive knowledge of the wine, the wine making process and the region. Highly recommend spending a day with Mario or his wife if you want to escape Venice for the Italian countryside. He also looked after all the small details like a coffee and bathroom stop as well as a wonderful lunch at a small eatery in the Prosecco hills. Thank you Mario!

A wonderful day out, on a water route that connects Padua with Venice. One gets access to three villas, which might seem too small a number in comparison to how many of them exist in the area, but these are crucial in providing insight into this interesting phenomenon in the history of the Venetian Republic. In addition, many other villas located along the canal can be viewed from the outside, as well as the engineering facilities - some of them very old - can be seen in full action. A bonus: a delicious multi-course lunch.

Very good experience and a great value for a full day cruise. We had great weather and a relaxing trip with lots of villas and locks.

We enjoyed seeing the countryside from the water and visiting the villas.

Private car tour to 2 wineries.Well planned,good stops etc
