One of the most unforgettable trips ever made!!! Highly recommended!
This was a spectacular tour!
There isnt a lot of walking in this one, so dont be frightened. Also bring a jacket, it may be warm in Venice, but youre going into the mountains.
Lets start at the beginning. When you arrive at the train station from the water bus, start to look for the tour guide with the sign, he might be late, so dont worry. He was about 5 minutes late for my tour and we started to get nervous. You will then get into a 10 person van where you will drive into the mountains. The tour is really great because you get to stop in several small towns, enjoy the local gelato and see the sites. The tour does include a stop for lunch at a lake front restaurant with lake front seating. It was nearly freezing when we arrived September but we werent going to pass up an opportunity to eat lake side.
All in all, the sites were spectacular, there wasnt a lot of walking, the food was great, the small towns that we stopped at were welcoming and had lots to offer, and our driver spoke great english.
Beautiful tour! Guide was well informed and answered many questions. Highly recommend.
We had an amazing day trip to the Dolomite Mountains. Our tour guides were so wonderful and friendly. Great value for money and very much worth doing!
We had a wonderful 8 hour tour to the Dolomite Mts. Only 7 of us in comfortable minivan with Marco, our great driver. We saw the first snow of the season October and the magnificent jagged mountain ranges with their first dusting of snow. Frequent photo stops and lots of information from Marco. Excellent lunch at Lake Misurina, with views across the lake. A great day, I would thoroughly recommend this trip.
This is certainly worth doing if you have the time while in Venice. The countryside is beautiful and the mountains were stunning. It was a nice break from the canals and narrow walkways of Venice. I definitely would do this again.
Really terrific. The scenario was fabulous. The guide was helpful and the driving was very good too.
Worth every dollar and definitely the highlight of my trip. Justin was an amazing guide, extremely knowledgable, fun and patient. I was with a small group and hence, had the opportunity to make many stops. The weather was lovely in fall as the trees were changing colours, and every stop we made was spectacular. The Dolomites is breathtaking, from bottom to top. I had such a good time with the other guests in my group and an unforgettable time.
We had a great day! Our guide Daniel was excellent. The views along the way were magnificent. Its a very comfortable journey in a lovely SUV. The view from the top was breathtaking.
Natural beauty trumps man made things everytime for us. We had been to venice a number of times and decided to head to the mountains. Spectacular views combined with personable, professional service made for a memorable day.
An amazing day! Even with not quite the weather we were hoping for, we saw and heard about these wonderful and breath taking mountains! In such a pristine place of such natural beauty!
I would highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting Venice. The tour guide was top notch and the scenery was breath taking. Our guide took us to many beautiful stops for photos and we had time to spend walking around beautiful mountain villages. Our lunch stop was great and the setting on a lake with the mountains in the background was wonderful.
What a amazing day!! We had a beautiful day and a wonderful tour guide Justin was very knowledgable and took us to all the best places. It was a incredible experience filled with views words cannot describe. The towns we visited were fun and beautiful and the mountains are almost unreal. I definitly suggest this wonderful tour!
This tour was wonderful. We were lucky as the weather was perfect. The scenery was incredible. The guide was fantastic and took us right up to the top of the mountains and to beautiful villages. We loved it!
Fantastic trip. Our driver and tour guide, Marco, was absolutely informative, highly entertaining and a very efficient and safe driver. His humor kept us laughing and engaged. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone wanting to take a day trip to the Dolomites. The scenery is breathtakingly beautiful..
Very scenic tour. If you want photos to share with everyone about your trip - this is the tour to get them! Small group was great and weather in Sept was awesome! Highly recommend.
We had a very safe driver and lucked out with a nice group of travelers in our group of 8 people. We even lucked out with the weather that day. In terms of the actual tour, it is expensive but I'm very glad we did it because we got some amazing shots of the beautiful scenery and we actually made more stops than I was anticipating for pictures and to wander around in some small picturesque towns. We had a great time.
Amazing tour and a must for any visitor to this area. The tour guide Daniel was excellent, had very good English and was very knowledgeable - we had plenty of photo stops along the way.
I would definitely recommend this tour.
The tour to the Dolomite Mountains was great even though we had mechanical problems with the van. We really didn't like sitting backwards in the van and wished there had been a window sun roof so we could see more of the mountains. The driver was good and took good care of us.
The group was of 8 people which was great as it was comfortable in a 4x4 car plus evenly paced. The scenery is amazing and shows a side of Italy which one does not expect, being close to the Austrian border.
Our guide Fabrizio was took us to great locations. Have a look at the weather before you travel, as we had rain in the early part of the morning and then it cleared up. Carry a thick jacket as it can get cold once you ascend the higher mountains.
Despite a little rain, the trip was fantastic. We would highly recommend it!
Beautiful! Beautiful! Beautiful! If you have more than one day on Venice, this is the tour to take. Use this tour to get out of the Venice city center, and go enjoy the countryside. Wide open spaces, fresh air, and majestic mountains! The tour group was small so we had plenty of time to explore each town, enjoy the local sites, have lunch, and just take in the peace and serenity of our surroundings! A must do tour!
Best pasta I had on this trip was in a local restaurant during this trip. The small group size is perfect! and even thought it was so cloudy we couldn't actually see the Dolomites we had an amazing day. Our guide stopped by little mountain towns, and this was well worth the whole day trip.
