Best way to see the country side, Marco was a great guide, shared a lot of information about the villages we visited. Grappa and Prosecco part of the tour was outstanding. Lunch at a rustic restaurant in a small village was truly a foodie experience.

Service is on a shared water taxi. This was our second time around, and wait time averaged 15 minutes, not bad. The ride itself is quite an exciting entry into Venice and we were dropped off directly at our hotel's landing.

I would do this trip a million times! Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a great personality! Thumbs, up to Anaatonelli, for the great job! I loved all the Medievil Towns, the Chiani Lunch at the Farmers vineyards and SanGiamigiana. It was nice to see the leaning tower of Pisa, was still standing! Mille Grazie!

Amazing - AMAZING tour!! The guide was wonderful and really personalized the trip to the 8 of us in the group. I was not familiar with this part of Italy, but I like it more than Tuscany. The restaurant we went to was also great. - The private Presco tasting was the very educational the setting was beautiful. .

Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The trip went through lovely towns and I liked that there were only 8 people, which allowed some flexibility. It was a pleasure to get out of the crowds in Venice and see something of the countryside. Of course, tasting wine is always a pleasure, and there were affordable bottles to purchase also at the vineyard.

Giovanni was absolutely stellar! We loved this tour and it was the highlight of our trip to Venice. He made the history come alive through his knowledge but he was also charming and funny. I would highly recommend this tour!

We were met at the Tronchetto stop by our friendly guide. OUr van was full with friendly folks. Outstanding tours, friendly guide, relaxing pace, delicious lunch, and just a wonderful time. It was so nice to get out of Venice and see the real Italy. Highlights were the grappa museum, lunch in Asolo, and the villa. HIghly recommended.

Daniel, our driver and guide was excellent. The villages provided quite a variety of experiences for our group. For me the group lunch in Asolo was the highlight.

This was a small group and a great way to experience the area outside of Venice. We really enjoyed Maristica, Bassano de Grappa, and the wine tasting... We appreciated the knowledge and friendliness of the guide, Marco, as he made it fun and interesting... his local knowledge was very good.,

We could not have asked for a better tour guide.
The villages were quaint and the history was well explained along the way.
Gianni was ever so accommodating to make sure we all had a chance for photos and bio breaks.
He knew his way around every establishment we visited and was welcomed by the hosts.
We had the most amazing lunch!
The grappa tasting was out of this world and finally the proseco tasting . . . I discovered the Spritz Aperol with proseco! Mamma Mia!!! It was all worth it and the fact that it was a small group, makes it that much more fun. WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!

First-Instructions from the company should be changed to make very clear that you need to take the vaporetto to the Tronchetto-Car Park stop, not Tronchetto-Mercato. And you should be aware that many vaporetti are 'express' at that time of the morning, so always ask the employee on board if the boat stops at Tronchetto-Car Park.

Daniel, our guide, was knowledgeable about the history of the area and provided information about each town that we visited. The trip took us through beautiful ancient towns and each stop was a treat. Take his recommendation for lunch. You will not be disappointedand it wasn't expensive. Grappa tasting was fun and our last stop for Prosecco tasting was at a relaxing winery with beautiful views. The transportation was in a very comfortable van. Our entire family agreed that this was our best tour of our trip.

I did this tour 2 years ago and could not wait to do it again with some friends. We had the same guide, Daniel who is just wonderful. If you go to Venice or are in the area make sure you go to the beautiful Hill Top towns of the Veneto region. Marostica, Bassano del Grappa, Asolo and of course the Prosecco region for some wine tasting. It is one of the best tours I have been on and I would do it again. Thank you Daniel for the second amazing experience.

It was great tour. Very nice surroundings, great tour guide. Nice balance of sightseeing in small, Veneto towns balanced by time spent at grappa museum and local sparkling wine wineyard. It was very relaxing tour, with lunch at local restaurant that was affordable and good. Learned much about the region, nice balance to time spend inside Venice. I would highly recommend the trip to others.

First of all the trip was even better then described. Our driver/guide Danial was superb and rely enjoyed his work. He was passionate about the areas he took us. Even though we were touring on Italian Unification day it was great to see the Medieval and Renaissance towns , the markets and the people. The restaurant we had lunch at had a great menu and a nice serene location. It was a long day but well worth it. My wife and I would do it again .

It is amazing to visit these nice little old towns on the hilltops of the Prosseco region. Food and wine are cheap as compared to Venice. I had the best pasta in my life in a small restaurant in Asolo, simple but tasty. If you are tired of the crowd in Venice, give yourself a break and come here.

We enjoyed this day trip, despite the wet weather! Marco, our guide and driver, was friendly, helpful and full of information about the areas we visited. Remember when getting to the departure point, Tronchetto vaporetto stop, to go to the second one and not the Tronchetto Mercato stop. From the Rialto vaporetto stop, give yourself about 25 minutes to get there.

This tour was excellent. We were picked up at our apartment by the tour company which saved us having to go into Venice just to turn around and come back out again. The ride between towns enjoyable and our guide was very knowledgeable. Some guides over-load on historical facts and you glaze over pretty quickly, our guide on this tour made comments on our destination, sites on the way to each location and had some general historical information salted in to keep our interest, but he did not over-do it. A thoroughly enjoyable day.
