Cortina & Dramatic Dolomites Full-Day Tour from Venice
- Duration: 8 hours
Per group up to 7
Our guide Simone was sensational. He was friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable and good fun to be with. Also a good driver. Starting at Piazzale Roma in Venice, we were able to locate Simone easily, due to the clear directions we were given. The trip was unhurried and informative, with regular stops. It was an easy and very enjoyable day, exploring a gloriously beautiful part of Northern Italy, that while only two hours from Venice, was an entirely different experience. Highly recommended.
Wow! Do not underestimate the value of this tour. It's a lot of driving but oh so very worth it. A beautiful day spent away from the crowds. Two items for thought: dress appropriately as temperatures are always cooler in the mountains and over the lunch hour, I recommend grabbing an item from the snack bar and then using that time to hike around the lake. You can eat at an Italian restaurant during the remainder of your trip outsidd the dolomites.
We loved the tour but would have happily spent less time in Cortina or not gone there at all and spent more time at the lake and/or at the top of the mountain viewing the 3 peaks. We appreciate that Cortina is a famous location and some people like to shop there but all the people on our tour (including ourselves) chose to tour the Dolomite mountains to experience their grandeur and see the stunning and magnificent views in that area.
The arrangements were well explained and met and the timetable was well adhered to. We were given good explanations at the various places we stopped and the driver was very forthcoming with information and appropriate advice. One thing which would have helped would have been some ongoing commentary about the region etc as we drove through - this would have added to our knowledge and understanding of the region.
The place is espectacular, totally worth it, and Simone, our tour guide, was amazing! he knows the place, he gave us the exact time at each point with lots of data, he is fun and ease and made our tour even more enjoyable. Excellent choice.
