We just spent a day with him touring around Barbaresco and Barolo areas. He is AWESOME!!! My husband I are celebrating our 7th year Anniversay; we wanted to do local touring with wine tasting, and he made our trip productive yet relaxing. He is friendly, knowledgeable, fun and flexible. Thank you Marcello. We'll certainly visit back...maybe with our parents next year ;)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Alex and Shawn! It was a pleasure to have you as guests, and thanks for sharing your enthusiasm with me! I'll definitely sip your Barolo Chinato waiting to meet you again! Big hug to you both and... first 7 years have gone, but the best still have to come! ; )) ciaooooooo Marcello

What an unforgettable day we had on our Hazelnut Tour with Marcello!He is pleasant and funny and we connected with him right away!He customized the tour to include some trekking and it really made for a complete experience. Once at the farm, we learned all about its operation from nut to final products, and then had an outstanding lunch featuring hazelnuts prepared by the wonderful family. We highly recommend Marcello:he is knowledgeable and loves what he does! We can't wait to return and tour with him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot, Myriam, it was sooo nice to 'work' with you, fabolous 4! Hope to meet you again as soon as possible, and in the meanwhile.. enjoy travelling! big hug to you, Dany, Lisa and John John!

Date: Sep 29/19

As I could not find any tours that has truffle hunting with hazelnut farm visit. I wrote in to Marcello to ask if he conducts such tour, he immediately replied he could specially design a tour to accommodate my request. He also rented us his car and he, the driver. We were so happy with his arrangements and he offered more than he promised. He even brought us to see Alba downtown and neighboring towns. He also brought us to a family restaurant for lunch to have pasta with the truffles we hunted.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey Bee Lee and Kenny! So happy you enjoyed the tour! After all, it was big fun also for me! It was my pleasure show you 'my places', and introduce you to the Langhe. Never forget to contact me, whenever you'll be in the area again, to share a glass of wine, and never stop discovering! Ciaoooooooo

If it were possible to put 6 stars out of 5, I would have rated this unique guide's work exactly that way. A delightful and very successful program, the cool guy Marcello just made our day. We learned a lot of new things, got a unique experience and met new interesting people. We will definitely return and we recommend Marcello to everyone.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot, Mikhail! You and your lady have been wonderful guests, hope to meet you again as soon as possible and... Don't hesitate to ask me about anything else in Langhe area! Ciaoooo!
