I birded for a couple of days in Tuscany in early November with Marco. He is thoroughly knowledgeable concerning the birds of this region and Italy more generally, and a very agreeable travelling companion” Matthew – CANADA

I spent a wonderful morning with Marco birding near Montepulciano. He was a very capable and skilled birder and biologist. In addition, he was great company and we enjoyed discussing a wide range of topics in our morning together” Allen -USA
