Hi, I'm Alex Uphill. I am a licensed outdoor guide and i live in Vicenza, near Venice: a perfect place to discover and enjoy the real essence of this region called Veneto. I spend my days exploring my region, Veneto and Italy to offer people unique and exclusive outdoor experiences. Not the usual commercial tours you can easily find on the web but something really custom made and different! Having a tour with me is like having a tour with a knowledgeable friend showing you around and always ready to listen to your desires. Hiking, Biking and Food & wine tours to enjoy the outdoors, meet the locals, taste wines and food! So come with me, You will discover that there is much more to see beyond Venice. Enjoy a different day and bring back home long lasting memories!
