We (meaning granddaughter, daughter and me) had a truly wonderful day in the alps! Although the three of us in the backseat of van got a little nauseous during trip, our driver, Allesandro, stopped often to enjoy gorgeous views. This was my favorite tour during our 10 day trip to Italy! If you visit venice, include this trip for one of your days there. I feel we got to visit another country and it was great way to end our fantastic trip.
What a great day we had! Our tour guide was great, the landscape was absolutely stunning, and lunch was excellent. It was a relatively cloudy day, but our tour guide was really good at scheduling our stops to try to hit them when the clouds were at their lowest. I highly recommend this tour!
A side note: I'm embarrassed to admit that I was one of the ones that got off at the wrong Vaporetto stop. My map didn't show TWO stops at Tronchetto. The meeting place is the SECOND Tronchetto stop, NOT "Tronchetto Mercato." All it took was a quick phone call and they came to meet us, though. Seems like this happens a lot...
Our tour was a lot of fun and very informative. I would have liked to have a little more shopping time in the villages we went to. Our guide Alessandro was energetic and knowledgeable. He really made the tour fun. He was courteous and considerate with all of us. The small bus we went on was comfortable, which made the travel time easy. The scenery was incredible, just like a post card.
The tour was amazing!!!! The guide just about fabulous, the places visited TRULY UNREAL!!!!! The only comment I would like to make is, that the meeting point by the line 2 vaporeto needed to be more SPECIFIC!!! Other than that, FABULOUS!!!!!!!!
Great day trip ... The scenery along the way was lovely, especially the villages!
An excellent guide and his information and passion for the dolomites was exceptional..The stopovers and the lunch was spot on...highly recommended
This trip was absolutely fantastic!! I am in my mid twenties and I went with my aunt who is in her 60s and we both had a great time - this trip is suitable for all ages! The views were breathtaking and guide was very entertaining and informative. Would definitely recommend this trip to anyone visiting Venice!
Fantastic tour into the north of Italy! Our guide, Vincenzo, was wonderful. He was incredibly knowledgeable and shared fun local legends to spruce the trip up. This should be a must see for everyone with an extra day in Venice.
beautiful landscape and lakes
What an absolutely beautiful trip. It was rainy and overcast, so we can hardly imagine how much more lovely it would be if the weather had cooperated. In spite of that, however, we had a wonderful time. Vincenzzo was our guide and he was incredible! Definitely a worthwhile tour not to be missed!
Views were spectacular. There was not as much time to hike around as I would have liked. Too much time in a vehicle.
We had extremely high hopes for this tour which did not start off well. We used your company for ALL of our Venice tours. We stayed at a hotel on the Canal. We followed your directions for meeting our tour guide completely. We allowed an hour and a half for travel time. Unfortunately, "Line 2" of the water bus, did not start in the direction we needed until well after we were to meet our guide. As soon as we figured this out, we ran back to our hotel and had them call a water taxi for us. The entire time, my husband was calling the emergency number to let them know what was going on, and that we were going to be late. As soon as the water taxi docked, we were met by our tour guide who proceeded to YELL at us and chastise us for being irresponsible. He actually had me in tears for the first hour of our trip. He told us, he would loose his job for us being late and holding up the other three women who were going with us. My husband and I have been on many tours. We have never been treated so badly while we were being responsible - we called 3 times! No, because of this I would not recommend this trip, nor this tour guide.
Roberto was a very good guide, can certainly see he enjoys doing his job, the tour itself was very interesting, weather was brilliant as well, stopped at few cozy Italian villages surrounded by mountains and lakes, very scenic tour it was, best tour I ever had and it was worth every penny spent for it :)
This tour was fantastic. Our guide Roberto was very good and we only had 7 people in our group. Our guide stopped in several spots so we could get pictures and the views were wonderful. He explained things about the area well . We also had a nice lunch at one of the restaurants along the way. Small groups also make the tours a little more personal and the guides can be more accommodating. Excellent trip!!!
