This was my last day in Italy and it was a perfect finale. Giovanni was great well informed, entertaining and thought provoking. Each town was delightful, and the prosecco tasting was a fun and relaxing way to end the day. The scenery was spectacular, the company delightful and the experience was charming.

Loved this tour! My husband and I were very happy. We saw 3 different towns and things in between. Whenever we saw a beautiful town on a hill, we went there, it seemed. Our guide and driver Justin was very knowledgeable and was also very happy to take our pictures against the beautiful scenery. Justin took us to a sweets shop in Marostica that had cheap and delicious desserts and coffee, and also sampled grappa at Poli in Bassano free. The prosecco vineyard was great! Sampled 4 or 5 different varieties and heard from the owner about the vineyard that has been in his family for 500 years.
My husband and I had been on a cruise prior to this excursion and would rank this tour at the top of all our experiences on our 2 week trip. Absolutely recommended!

I think this tour is a must for anyone who visits Venice. It was wonderful! It was a long day but the places we visited were just spectacular. It was also great to escape the hustle and bustle of Venice and breath in the country air. At the restaurant which was recommended by our guide we had one of our best meals in Italy. It was very inexpensive too. Thank you to our driver/guide Justin for a wonderful day.

Marco, our driver and guide, was fantastic - very knowledgeable, humorous, accommodating! It was great to see so many interesting and beautiful places in the Veneto countryside. The grappa and protect tastings were a bonus.

This was a great trip! Our guide was very personable and extremely informative. The town's you visit are amazing and we enjoyed the Prosecco. This tour gave us the opportunity to get outside of Venice and see the countryside.

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.

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.

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.
