Vincenzo was a fantastic and entertaining guide for this fabulous day tour to the Dolomites and Cortina. The stops along the way far exceeded our expectations with breathtaking scenery and lots of great history lessons shared. We are so pleased we decided to take the tour as part of our five night stay in Venice. Some advice - there are two Tronchetto vaporetto stops - make sure you wait/meet at the main Tronchetto stop near the cafe and not the one near the train station and tour buses.
Great tour and good way to get out of the city for a day. The guide was knowledgeable, flexible and very accommodating. We had a great day out and recommend any person who loves clean crisp Alpine air and great mountain views to take this tour. The restaurant which is recommend is well priced and in a great location overlooking a lake.
I do recommend taking a warm clothing with you, it was warm in Venice but very cool up in the mountains. When going to the meeting point from Venice, you need to make your way to Tronchetto Car Park (the 2nd stop using the water bus) or you can you the people mover monorail from Roma Station. Enjoy.
Fabulous day trip, with an informative tour guide/driver who also had a great sense of humour - Vincenzo/Georgiou. The weather was perfect and as such the views where amazing. Being a small group allowed for a very pleasant experience. Highly recommended!
Awesome tour with fantastic guide Daniel!!! He was terrific!! Would highly recommend! Daniel was extremely knowledgable about the area and history. The lunch at Misurina was super! The tour was unhurried and there were plenty of photo stops. The Tre Cime de Lavaredo were unlike anything I've ever seen - amazing views all around! Very comfortable mini van ride. 7 people on our tour made for a very personal tour. Absolutely worth doing this tour!!!
Loved the small group of 8. Fantastic guide with plenty of free time and personal stories and insight. Lovely lunch spot and time for espresso and chocolate as well. Loved it!!!
the trip to the dolomites with breathtaking with a very good and friendly tour guide. highly recommend.
Fantastic day, very will organized the guide Daniel was very helpful and decent person only you have to be prepared for cold wether in the top of the mountain. I highly recommend this trip. Tarek Ali
Beautiful......Marco was a great guide. The weather wasn't perfect, but he and we made the best of it.
This was a great tour! We got to see a very beautiful part of the world we probably never would have seen otherwise. The Dolomites are very dramatic and we got a number of "postcard" views during the tour. Our tour guide was excellent. Anyone who has more than a couple of days in Venice ought to take this tour.
Had a very small group (6) which we thought was great! Driver very personable and knowledgeable - didn't herd us like so many other tour guides. The Dolomites speak for themselves (awesome) but I appreciated the commentary along the route of the various towns, what they produce, and the people who live in them.
Lunch on the lake was the best - we had perfect weather. Of all the side trips we took I think this was the best. Great scenery, good food, relaxed pace.
We were trying to figure out whether or not to go since Venice was so intriguing...glad we decided to get in the van! (A note: some might find your directions to the meet up spot confusing - you should say exactly what ferry stop to get off of) - Nancy Townshend-Vess
An absolutely amazing trip with excellent tour guide. The bus was small with an intimate group which gave a fun and friendly atmosphere. Daniel gave us an excellent introduction to Italy for our first day in this fabulous country and the lunch stop overlooking the lake was stunning
This was a terrific tour. Our tour guide, Alessandro was informative and very charming. He made the very long day pleasant and interesting. The sights were beautiful. The restaurant for lunch at edge of a small lake was very good. The scenery was spectacular every where we went.
Loved this tour. Breathless with so many views. Tour leader was one of the best we had. Thank you Jacqueline (Malta
Great tour, guide informative, comfortable vehicle ,venues for meal tasty and well resourced
The tour was amazing and highly recommended for ppl with less time in Italy! For those with more time, please do stay in Dolomiti.. It's picturesque at its best!
Care - there are two Tronchetto canal stops. Make sure that you get off at the second stop. This needs to be made clearer on the booking voucher. We nearly missed our trip as we got off at the wrong stop. We had a wonderful day, once we met up with our guide
We met our tour guide at the second Tronchetto stop on the waterbus line. We traveled with a party of 2 and another party of 2 joined us on the tour. This tour involved travelling outside of Venice into the rural areas leading to the Dolomite Mountains. The views along the way were spectacular. Our driver gave us many opportunities to stop and take pictures. He shared us information about local history and answered our questions very clearly. Lunch was at a quaint taverna and was very nice with lots of menu choices and the prices were very reasonable. We arrived at the top of the mountain and we got caught in a rain storm. Our guide was very apologetic, but we understood it was not his fault. We stopped at some villages for gelato and for shopping. The guide was very accommodating and stopped for washroom breaks as well. We had a wonderful tour and highly recommend this to anyone who wants to see breathtaking views of the countryside and mountains.

Really enjoyed this tour. Tour group was only 7people and the tour guide we had was absolutely fabulous. Beautiful views and just all in all a great day.
Excellent! My mother and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour, it was well run and we have plenty of time at the Dolomite Mountains which were spectacular. Also the place we were taken for lunch was excellent.
Great tour overall and our guide was excellent. I would definitely recommend this tour to other people.
The Dolomite tour was an amazing experience. The stops along the way and the lunch location were great. I would absolutely recommend. Disappointment... out trip was scheduled for Friday a sunny day but only four people signed up we were asked to change to a rainy Saturday. Terrible weather.
This was a great tour, and our driver Marco was fantastic and very informative about the region. Absolutely beautiful scenery and a lovely lunch.
You know about the trip date trying to be moved. However between a couple of e mails, and phone calls tour went ahead on our booked date. STUNNING scenery . WELL RUN AND ORGANISED .
tour operator even picked us up from our hotel and returned us at end of trip.
would highly recommed this day trip. TIP If you stay in Mestre let the tour company know in advance
