Marco was a likable, charismatic host with a wealth of information. I had a lot of questions, and he happily answered them all. He's a professional wine-maker and offered us some great insights into restaurants. We went to one of his recommendations at the conclusion of our tour: it was the best dining experience we had in Italy!
