Absolutely loved this tour! It was one of the highlights of our entire trip! All of the towns we visited were beautiful and all had a unique charm. Marco our tour guide was so wonderful! He was very personable and made the tour so much fun! The lunch in Asolo was one of the best meals we had the entire time we were in Italy! And the prosecco winery was a fabulous way to end the day! Would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to explore the hill towns.

Took this tour with 3 other travelers. Our tour guide Justin was terrific - great driver, made recommendations based on what we were interested in and made this day, our last in Italy for this trip : very special. Especially enjoyed the walks through Basano del Grappa and Asolo. Our lunch in Asolo on the upper deck of a Guide Michelin rated restaurant, with spectacular views of the valley below, was very special. The Prosecco tasting was also a highlight. At The Palladian villa was surprised to learn how highly decorated the interior walls were. It was a special experience for an art history buff like myself. I've seen Palladio's work in churches and large government buildings but not much of his early residential design. A rare opportunity to see a home like this. This tour was a real highlight of our 2 weeks in Italy - highly recommend it and Justin.
Great tour! ... saw amazing small towns and beautiful countryside plus, so much more!
Our guide Giovanni was excellent ... very knowledgable and fun! Highly recommend this tour!
Great tour! Our guide Marco was great. He was very knowledgable about all of the places we visited. The fact that this was a group of eight in a van made the experience much more enjoyable. All of the towns we visited were amazing. The tour was everything we expected. Having a great guide like Marco made it all the better!
This was a fantastic tour with a great guide Marco. Well worth doing. Some magical places seen and some great food, grappa,wine and proseco tasted
Ensure you have the correct times that the Motoscafi depart as the time varies from Rialto to San Marco
Really good value for money!!! Fabulous knowledgeable guide in Daniel - knew so much history! So many stunning beautiful views and fantastic wine tasting - highly recommended!!
We had a very enjoyable and informative day. Our guide Justin was excellent. He made it a great experience and was very good at answering questions. I would highly recommend this tour.
An excellent trip with a personable, knowledgeable and friendly guide/driver. Good to escape the bustle of Venice and visit an authentic restaurant for lunch. Prosecco vineyard setting was simply stunning!
What a wonderful day, and a great break from fighting through the tourist masses in Venice! We visited Marostica, Bossino my favourite and had lunch in Asolo at own expense, then stopped at a villa in Maser with amazing frescoes. All three towns are absolutely charming, and so worth a visit. This tour is a great way to access these places, as it's not easy to get here without a car. Definitely recommended - one of my favourite days in Italy!
Absolutely AMAZING!!! We had a such a great day with Giavanni. He was informative and kept the group on schedule without being pushy. He also gave us options on how we spent our time. The day we went it was extremely hot, he would get the van cooled down for us before we got in. He had a ton of knowledge of the area and his love for Italy was strong. This was such welcomed break from the busy tourist towns. If you can't decide if it is worth it, please go and see for yourself. It was one of our best days of vacation.
This tour was amazing! Daniel was very knowledgeable and interesting. The van was a bit squishy for 8 people but we had a good group so it didn and #39;t cause any problems.
This is one of the most beautiful areas we've seen! Our guide, Giovanni, greeted us as we arrived at the appointed spot, shared his expert knowledge with humor and charm, understood our needs, and gave us ample time to explore and take pics. From the gorgeous scenery to the grappa and prosecco tastings to the quite delicious and lovely lunch, we made memories that will make us smile whenever we think of northern Italy. Thank you for a beautiful day! Barbara
Our guide, Giovanni from Avventure Bellissime made our day thoroughly enjoyable, and we highly recommend this tour! He was extremely informative and knowledgeable, as well as friendly and considerate - and fun. The hill towns are beautiful, and our day was capped off with a delightful Prosecco tasting. Although lunch wasn't included, we opted to share a meal with Giovanni in a restaurant he recommended - wonderful local food and service, and a relaxing way to learn even more about the culture and people. All in all, a wonderful, entertaining day - and well worth the time and money.
We loved our visits to the small towns and Villa Barbero, the grappa and prosecco tasting, and lunch in Asolo. Giovanni informed and entertained us with his knowledge and wit. It was a long day and well worth it.
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.
Excellent Itinerary.Surprised at the beauty, helped by excellent weather.
Marco is a very friendly and helpful tour driver
