My husband and I traveled with Marco to the Po River Delta and the Venice Lagoon. Our primary objective was birding. Marco knew all the right places. We even saw a black necked loon! Marco was familiar with many aspects of the natural history of the Delta and the Lagoon. He also shared his knowledge of Italian culture and food... More

Marco is the best! Three of us spent a weekend birding the Maremma area with him. Marco knew all the best spots to see birds. We even saw the Eurasian bittern much larger and slower than our American bittern. Marco's knowledge extends beyond birds. His knowledge of natural history is extensive. His knowledge of Italian culture and food makes a... More

This was the third time we have spent time with Marco in the past four years, and it won't be the last! Marco is an experienced guide, knowledgeable in so many areas, who is also able to introduce his clients to places they might not have visited on their own, and more than that to places they might not have...

Liz and I were scheduled for a one week Birds and Art of Venice Tour. It made no sense to travel to Italy for a week so we were put in touch with Marco to program a pre-trip. Marco was marvelous. I sent him about 4 lines in an email about what I wanted to do and he produced exactly... More

When my husband and I travel, we like to get away from overly touristed sites. For this reason, we chose the lovely old town of Arezzo as a base. For two days of our stay we went out with Marco into two different regions of the Arezzo Province, the Casentino and the Val di Chiana. The first day we visited... More

Marco took me to explore some beautiful and interesting places along the Arno. I never could have found them on my own. We hiked on forested trails and along open meadow. I learned about mushrooms, trees, birds, and the environment in general. Marco has a broad and deep knowledge of nature and has a passion for sharing it. I had... More

In September my wife and I spent a day each with Marco and Daniele birding from our base in Montecatini. Our first trip (with Marco) was to lake Massacuiccoli reserve and surrounding area near Pisa, including a small rowing boat trip (with silent electric motor) through the reed beds. Our second (with Daniele) was to Fucecchio reserve (largest Italian inland... More

Flamingos, spoonbills, egrets, herons, kingfishers, more, more, more. My husband and I spent a great day with Daniele. He took us to several great places that we would have never discovered on our own, showed us great birds, and patiently helped us understanding the birds and more of Italy. We had a lovely lunch on the beach and enjoyed spending... More

Not only did Marco find great birds and sites, but also good restaurants! While driving with him to various places, he kept up a lively conversation about Italian history, politics, and even helped us with pronunciation of Italian. I'm 76 and was traveling with my son and daughter-in-law and my 12-year-old granddaughter. A mixed group for sure, but he made... More
