Testimonials & Reviews

I miss all of you already!! To say “the trip” was AMAZING is an understatement. Marco – thank you for introducing us to your home, your friends, your family, your way of life…I feel so grateful to have experienced the wonders of Lake Garda. Please note that as a result of your hospitality, kindness, and exposure to an abundance of food and wine, I will be eating lettuce for the next six months!!! 🙂
Many hugs, smiles, and love.

What a trip you planned for us Marco! We could not have had a better time. The food, wine and culture was top notch! You took care of all the details and it was nice not to have to think about what to do and where to go. You and Sarah were awesome tour leaders. And it was so much fun to see all your friends and family. It made the tour feel less like a “tour” and more like we were traveling with friends. It amazes us that a lot of Americans don’t travel to this part of Italy. We both believe it rivals the beauty of the Amalfi Coast which we though was not possible. We would recommend the Lake Garda experience to anyone without any hesitation. Way to go Marco. Thank you so much for all you did.

You are more than welcome, and thanks so much for letting me enjoy a trip of a lifetime celebrating my 50th Birthday and Graduation.  This trip was a present to celebrate both.  Thanks and many blessings.


We really enjoyed visiting your home town and region with you. We had some wonderful meals, saw a lot of beautiful landscapes and went to several very interesting places. Also, we enjoyed spending time with the group and with you. You’re a very amiable and knowledgeable man, and have a lot to offer on a tour. It was very nice to see and learn things that we could only have learned from someone with your unique combination of professional knowledge and personal background. It was very obvious that you are rightly very proud of the Garda region.

Just got back from a wonderful trip to Venice and the Lake Garda region of Italy. Lots of food, wine and culture.  Thanks to Marco Avigo of Marco Avigo Tours for a trip I will always remember!

Thank you so much for putting together such a well planned, well thought out, amazing tour!! Lake Garda is more beautiful than any photo could capture. Seth and I feel so lucky to have gotten to experience it and the food and wine that it produces. Everything was so clean and pure and wonderful. Equally as charming were the people and hospitality; it truly is best to travel with an insider!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you for bringing us to your hometown. I will go on a tour with you anytime and can’t wait to go back to Lake Garda.

Marco and Sara,

It was the best trip ever! You both are the greatest! And we couldn’t have been with a better group of people. Hope we didn’t slow you all down too much. Have to admit that today I was very disappointed in my meals here at home. Hope to see you all again soon.

Molte Grazie!!
