Me and my friends really enjoyed the private trip because there were only us. Our driver and guide Simone was the best because he is knowledgeable and gave us really good recommendations where to eat and what to do. Trip was breathtaking because we stopped at the picturesque places. We really recommend to book this trip because it takes you to the best points in mountains. The minivan was comfortable and with air conditioner.

I decided to book this tour at the last minute for my 16 year old son and myself with Alessandro. It turned out to be a wonderful decision. He was extremely kind and patient with my autistic son and was able to adjust the tour to meet our needs and keep both of our interests. He was extremely knowledgable about the geography and history of the region. I highly recommend the tour and look forward to taking an additional tour through the Dolomites with Alessandro in the future. Thanks for a wonderful afternoon!!

Worth every penny! Lots of sightseeing in the beautiful Dolomites with a knowledgable guide. You take a small van and drive throughout the day with beautiful stops along the way. The longest we spent was about 90 minutes at a beautiful lake for lunch. There is a lot of curves on the mountain roads so be prepared for that if you get car sick and you will be good. Would recommend this tour!
Interesting and engaging visit, congratulations to Manuel, to his way of telling and describing the castle and its history, the time has flown, unfortunately. Time to take some pictures in the garden, have a coffee with pretzel and go down an alternative route. Beautiful morning, we definitely recommend it. Barbara
It was a very lovely day. Our guide was very nice, knowledgeable and speaks perfect English. She took care of us really well and we learned a lot from her. A long journey but definitely worth it. We took great pictures and memories.
