Both days were fabulous and welll organized. Driving through the Dolomites was spectacular, especially since it had snowed hard the day before. Apart from the scenery, sights like the Olympic ski slope, a huge dam, etc. I especially enjoyed seeing the places where Titian lived and worked. Dinner at a lovely restaurant with fellow travelers was a lot of fun. The guide, obviously very new at the job, was very friendly and personable. My advice for those choosing to take the tour this time of year is to dress very warmly even if Venice does not warrant it.
Despite the pouring rain the next day, the aqua alta with the flooding, the walking tour was great and because the guide, who was very passionate about her city, knew it well, enabled us to bypass many obstacles. The boat tour in the afternoon was very enjoyable as well. Fully recommend this and hope to repeat it one day in better weather!
Don't miss the trip to Dolomite Mountains. Our guide was excellent, very informative, and created a fun day!
This tour was wonderful. The scenery driving up to the Dolomites was beautiful. Well worth the trip
Loved this tour and our driver Justin was fantastic. It was a great day out with spectacular scenery and Justin knew all the best places to stop and eat. Definitely recommend!!
This was our favourite tour of the trip. Our day in the Dolomites with Justin was beyond memorable. Some of our best pictures are from this tour and we were on a 3 week honeymoon. Justin was a great driver, he was kind and full of so much information. He knew it was going to rain and continued to watch the radar and tour us around until it was upon us. That is when we stopped for lunch. It rained for the hour while we ate and then we were back to touring! The lunch was AMAZING!!! The entire meal was our favourite of the trip!!! I couldn't recommend this portion of the tour any more, honestly!!! Well worth the cost!!!
For the skip-the-line portion we had Marco for the walking tour. He is tall and easy to follow in the large crowds of Venice. He is witty and charming and could answer any of our questions. Our water boat tour was with Christina. We loved doing this portion of the tour. It was a great way to see all of Venice and not deal with hiring our own taxi!!! This tour was a perfect way to see all of Venice highlights in one day and the beautiful stunning Dolomites another day!
Wonderful to get into the mountains for a day. Beautiful sights with a knowledgeable guide. We especially enjoyed Cortina.
We were split into two vans, men and women. The women had a great tour with Justin. The men's guide was less than friendly but in both instances the tour was without question one that you would not want to miss. The Dolomites were beautiful.
Fantastic day with spectacular scenery.
Would highly recommend it.

Well worth the money, absolutely breathtaking views, comfortable mini bus type of transport, I would recommend this tour, but make sure and take a jacket with you I went in September and is was very cold up on there.
We had looked forward for some time for the Dolomite Mountains trip. Unfortunately the day was very wet and the mist covered the mountains so we saw very little of them. The trip was good but to enjoy to the full would require better visibility. The guides were very good the location for the lunch and food provided were excellent - so in summary it was a well planned trip but the weather plays a significant part in what will be experienced on the day
The Skip the Line walking tour of Venice was superb. Our very knowledgeable guide made it a really good and worthwhile experience. She provided indepth information at particular places with good variety that kept everyone interested. The trip to St Marks Cathedral would have been difficult without going on a tour as the lines were so long, but we were able to get in after only a few minutes wait. The boat trip in the afternoon was okay but the guided commentary was much more general and less interesting. As first time visitors to Venice taking the tours was a good place to start in this amazing city.

Venice in One Day:
Not worth it, skip this one. Highlight of the tour was supposed to be St. Mark's Basilica, but we were in there a total of maybe 10 minutes. We didn't even get to walk around and explore. The rest of the tour was just walking around the city into different "campos"... like residential squares. Very boring. Then instead of being brought back to the original meeting place, we were left in the streets, told to go eat at a restaurant along the canal, and given rough directions about how to head back. Venice is like a maze full of dead-ends, so we took forever finding our way again. It's also not clear in the ad that there is a long wait between the end of the walking walking tour and the start of the boat tour. We had over 2.5 hours to kill, which affected the plans we had for the evening.
Vincenzo (our guide) was very friendly, informative, and accommodating; we liked him a lot. He made sure that we didn't feel rushed. I liked the fact that it was a small group tour. This was one of my favourite tours that I've done so far in Italy. The only part of the trip I didn't like was Cortina, but that's just personal preference. The ad says minibus, but it's actually an 8-seater van. It would also be nice if the meeting point could be Piazzale Roma instead of Tronchetto.
Avoid this company at all costs.
They sub let to a local company who are a waste of space.
No positive feed back in years.
Liked the view of Dolomite Mountains.
Didn't like the tour guy (driver).
He got the accident on the way to Dolomite mountains. He needed to pay some responsibility cause he drove to other side.
On the way back to Venice, he speeded up to 160km/hr. The speed limit was 110. He also texted and drove.
