We have taken these types of tours in Europe before but this was by far the best. Our guide Marco was wonderful. He was friendly and informative. The van was very roomy and comfortable.The towns we visited were lovely. Our lunch at Antica osteria Al Bacaro in Asolo was delicious and drinking prosecco while overlooking the vineyards was something I won't forget.
Marco was a nice tour guide - not overly wordy but certainly informative enough. We were in a comfortable van and the countryside is so different than Venice itself. The day flowed nicely - sightseeing while driving, walking and viewing the cities and towns and enjoying a delightful lunch at a lovely spot chosen by Marco. It was a great way to get a very special taste of Italy.
One of our favorite Europe vacation tours. One couple was a no show, so only 5 of us in a spacious new Mercedes van. Marco was very good, spoke English well, very calm and answered questions like a pro. Went to three smaller towns and saw some great sights, including a Grappa museum and tasting, finished the long day with a great wine tasting in a great hillside setting, two whole bottles for the five of us. Marco dropped us off at the front door of our hotel that was on the way back to Piazzale Roma in Venice. Lots of walking in the towns so you need to be free of mobility challenges. Quite a value for a 8 hr tour.
Loved this tour and would totally recommend it. Our tour guide was stellar.
My wife and enjoyed this tour very much. We had a small group of just 2 couples which enhanced the interraction with the guide. Our guide,, Daniel was excellent in his knowledge and speaking English. In any case this tour of the beautiful countryside was a special break from the crowds of Venice. Highlights for us were walking in the small towns and the expansive views of the vineyards while sampling Prosecco. The lunch at the small resturant in Asolo was pleasnt and we tried local fare; I had "mouthfulls of rabbit" - tender and flavorful. Villa Barbaro by Palladio is not to be missed. I would have preferred a guided tour inside but the self tour using a descriptive handout is apparently all any visitor gets. The tour went at a comfortable pace and we returned on time - overall a great experience for us!
Marco was extremely knowledgeable and answered all our questions. He remained with us throughout the day and explained each through which we traveled. He is proud of his country and we will be pleased if he visits us so that we can reciprocate!
The tour was great and Marco, our guide, was fantastic. The towns he selected to visit had spectacular views, were quaint and the grappa and prosecco tastings added a kick to the trip. Marco found us a fine local restaurant for lunch. Highly recommend the tour.
This was a highlight of my trip to Venice. Fabulous. Marco was an excellent tour guide. He offered just the right amount of info. It was great to have him as the guide as he is an avid photographer and was able to point out the best perspectives and panoramas for shots. The towns we visited were picturesque, historic, and beautiful. I would do this tour again and highly recommend it.
Wow! We saw so many things in 1 day. The scenery was beautiful. It was wonderful to learn more about the area. Our guide, Giovanni (alias Luigi), was great. He was very personable and knowledgeable. He also had a passion for the area and his job. Thank you Giovanni. We had a wonderful day and a great group to share it with.
Amazing, the best tour we have been on. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. The places we visited were beautiful and the restaurant where we had lunch was so friendly and the food, pork shank, was to die for and reasonably priced. Great to have a comfortable air-conditioned mini bus. If you have the chance do go it is so well worth the price.
This tour was excellent. Our driver/guide, Marco, was great! Tour operated with 5 people, instead of the maximum of 8, so we were really lucky to have such individualized attention. The towns we visited were quaint and lovely. Asolo was my personal favorite. What's not to like about a town with only 300 residents! The drive was comfortable and the lunch we had at a family-run restaurant was delicious. I purchased a bottle of red wine from the restaurant to enjoy in my hotel room later on that evening. I highly recommend this tour. You will not be disappointed!
Our guide was an excellent tour guide with very adequate English, a sense of humor and excellent knowledge of the sites we visited. This trip should definitely be on your list of "things to do" while in Venice - the Veneto is beautiful and the lunch stop in Asolo provided a rare opportunity for a real "native" Italian meal. Marostica should not be missed - one of the most charming places I've ever visited.
we loved the tour and enjoyed the company of the people who shared it.The lunch time resturant food was wonderful and our guide made the day.
