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.

Perfect tour of places not easily reached by public transportation. Our driver, Marco, was good natured, friendly and never rushed us. He was a wealth of information on everything from history, culture, local industry and geography. He was able to answer any question.

Found our tour guide for the day easily. This is a wonderful day out if you want to see beautiful countryside at a leisurely pace. Five stops which included a Grappa tasting and visit to a winery to try the Prosecco. Great because there was no pressure to make purchases. Our guide was Marco, a charming man with excellent knowledge of the area. All in all a great day out which I'd happily recommend to friends.

A wonderful tour! We were fortunate to have the same guide, Alessandro, that we had for the Dolomite tour. We visited 4 towns that were different, beautiful and very interesting. We had a grappa tasting which was unexpectedly great. Our last stop at the Ca'Salina vineyard was wonderful. We met the owner and had a very pleasant visit with him. This may have been the very best tour of the 4 that we took in Venice.

Care - there are two Tronchetto canal stops. Make sure you take the second one. This needs to be made clearer on the booking voucher. We had a wonderful time, once we found our guide.

Personal driver and guide just perfect .
The personal guide was so informative and knowledgeable .
The lunch at the hill top town in a family run trattoria was amazing .
Tour is worth getting out of busy Venice for the day to see charming towns of Verona .

This was the best tour we had on our trip. So much to see with a wonderful tour guide. Loved the food and wine at lunch time. I highly recommend this tour to get a break from Venice.

A wonderful break from beautiful Venice with a full day in the nearby hills. The guide was knowledgable, friendly, spoke good English and made the day an enjoyable one. Visited a number of towns and attractions which were both relaxing and investing. We thought the tour was really worthwhile and different.

Loved this trip. Visiting the Veneto is an addition to learning about Venice. The trip will take you to small towns and you are able to see a part of the Veneto you otherwise will not see.

Giovanni was a great tour guide -- knowledgeable and interesting. He provided insight into both the history and culture of everywhere we visited. I really enjoyed all the places we visited as well. The Veneto region is beautiful. I would definitely recommend this tour.

On this tour of the Veneto Hill Towns, our expectations were far exceeded. Giovanni picked us up right on time and we shared the minivan with one other couple. Our first stop was one of the walled cities, Marostica. Giovanni provided us with facts and information about each place we visited as well as the culture and food of the area. We then visited Bassano dal Grappa where we did a grappa tasting. This was my favorite city. I would love to have stayed longer. We had lunch in Ascolo at a local Osteria. I had a pumpkin pasta (homemade) which was excellent. Our next stop was Villa Barbaro where we were able to tour the Palladian villa and the grounds. Our final stop was Prosecco tasting at Valdobbiadene, the heart of the Prosecco region. It was wonderful especially because the owners of the winery knew Giovanni. We got excellent service and treatment. I would encourage anyone who wants to know more about the Veneto to take this tour and I Hope you get Giovanni as your guide. I strongly recommend this trip.

Had a great time. Guide GIOVANNI was great. The itinerary was perfect. I especially liked Aoslo. The restaurant was wonderful. Gave a real sense of being in the moment rather than being a tourist.

We enjoyed this tour very much. It was good to get away from hectic Venice and enjoy the beautiful countryside of Veneto. Daniel our guide was very good, gave us ample time to ourselves and was very knowledgable without very overbearing. This tour takes you to some beautiful towns.

A day full of surprises . Little gems scattered in the hills of the mainland. the old villages were all different .There was just enough time to spend at each. The wine tasting and grappa tasting a pleasure Enjoyed a lunch with tour leader in one of the villages Was great to be out of the crowds of Venice for the day . A small group tour with a maximum of 8 We only had another couple with us Great value and day

One of the best tours of our holiday. Our Guide was excellent and this trip was an experience. Venice is beautiful but the hill towns are just amazing. Oh I could so live there. We got to try Grappa and of course Prosecco at the wineries. The towns were stunning. A great day all round.

Probably one of the best days of our lives. Daniel, our driver/guide was a wonderful host and the day was packed with some of the best scenery we had ever seen. Combined with an authentic Italian lunch and a visit to a Prosecco vineyard, there was little of the Veneto region that we didn't sample. Each town seemed more beautiful than the one before. A great trip!!! Not to be missed!

This was an excellent tour. Our guide, Marco, was very knowledgeable and an excellent driver. The only challenge was the weather--Venice had been experiencing untypically hot and humid weather for a week and the hill towns were just as hot. Marco accommodated a request for gelato mid-afternoon and we experienced our best gelato of our three week trip in Italy and Greece. This tour company is top notch.

Our visits to the Venetian countryside on our very sunny Sunday allowed my wife and I to experience some of the tranquil beauty of the area. After an excellent lunch at one of the local ristorantes we were able to sample some the excellent Prosecco wines, one of my favourites. An excellent day!
