What people are saying about Venice

Be at the AVTO stop at Piazzale Roma by 7:40am. The bus will leave at 7:50 sharp! The driver will "mess with you" if you do not speak Italian. Just show him your name on your confirmation and look at HIS manifest in order to point out your name. Anyway, this is an extremely affordable way to see the beautiful dolomite area. We had plenty of time to take the cable car all the way up to Tofana Cortina. We then had plenty of time to stroll in the village, have lunch and window shop. You will be back at P.R. before 6:30pm

Every bus was perfectly on time according to the schedule. It was also easy to find a bus as it was waiting just outside the aiport. I am very satisfied with the service.

The bus was waiting, just outside Arrivals exit, all wearing masks and snooth ride to Venice.

Everything was very professional and on time. Pick up close to the hotel

Wonderful experience! Guide was on time and we had a smooth ride
