This was the tour if a lifetime! Our tour guide, Max, was an excellent host and took us to see the most amazing natural sites. The Dolomites are truly majestic and we got to see them from several vantage points, as he stopped several places along the way so we could take pictures. We also made two stops to darling towns at the base of the mountains. The second stop featured a Christmas market. We had lunch and shopped. Such a lovely day and once in a lifetime experience.
Breathtaking views! A MUST TRIP!

Such a great experience and beautiful views!! Our driver Marco was amazing and very funny. We had such a wonderful time, I wish we had some more time in each location but that was the best worth of our money

The guides for this tour were very visible and punctual at the agreed meeting point. Our guide, Francesco, was excellent: informative, funny and very accommodating. He made everything run smoothly throughout the whole day.

The tour itself was fantastic. The stops were in excellent locations for photographs, food and souvenirs.

We were blessed with perfect weather so the day was simply brilliant. Highly recommended.
Do. Not. Miss. This!

Wow, this was worth every single penny!
The Dolomite Mountains are just absolutely breathtaking, you'll never want to leave! Our guide was kind, friendly, and well informed, He brought us to his favourite gelato place on the way back and it was amazing! You will not regret booking this experience!
Not worth the money

The views were amazing but not worth the money. The guide was funny and knowledgable but I can’t say it was much of a tour. We were dropped in places and left to our own devices, no organisation for the tour or advice on what to do in the places. We went for lunch… everywhere was closed. Stopped at multiple different places to try and find some food and ended up eating at 15:30. The tour guide didn’t know where we could go and eat and was asking strangers on the road where was open, something that should be known beforehand. No opportunity for a short walk around the beautiful stops because there was no direction/‘’tour’’
Very expensive for what you get, remembered more for hysteria rather than what it should’ve been.
