Dolomite Mountains Small Group Day Trip from Venice
Reviewed by: Gurbir Singh S, October 2014
This was the best part of our Venice trip. This is a very beautiful place, worth seeing, don't miss. Anyone travelling to Milan or Venice must plan for this trip. The entire drive to mountains was very scenic and the villages and lakes at stop-overs were amazing. Over and above that, our driver-cum-guide "Vincenzo Berri" made all the difference. He was a great guy with detailed knowledge about the place. He was very accommodating and treated everyone really well throughout the trip. He was kind enough to pick us from our hotel, provided stop-overs for pictures, coffee/toilet breaks, etc. as and when requested, and he never seemed to be in a hurry. Thank you so much "Vincenzo".
Overall, it was great trip. We thoroughly enjoyed everything and would recommend this to everyone.

This was certainly the highlight of our month in France and Italy. The day flowed seamlessly, with frequent stops for coffee, photographs etc. We enjoyed having time to explore towns Our driver was wonderful. His commentary was informative but never overwhelming. We were particularly impressed with his care for a passenger with special needs. The vehicle was comfortable and his driving impeccable. The scenery exceeded all expectations, absolutely magnificent. The whole day was a joy.
We also booked a tour of Provence. This also was an excellent experience, allowing us to visit places that otherwise we would have missed. Again our driver was very professional, sharing relevant information and giving us time to explore. As a frequent traveller, I will use Viator again. It is a very efficient organisation and the small group trips are perfect for those who dislike larger tour groups.

It was a beautiful trip with lunch looking out at the mountains. Wonderful small villages and markets. The view from the mountain top was spectacular! We would recommend to everyone. Much different scenery from Venice and refreshing to be in the quiet of the mountains. Our guide was knowledgeable and loved what he did.

Daniel was exactly where he said that he would be and early. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the history and culture of the area. He was mindful of our needs and stopped at opportune times for sustenance and relief. He stopped in beautiful places for photo opportunities. the walk around the lake was magnificent and lunch in that setting, at Lake Misurina, was one of the highlights of my entire trip to Italy.
As we climbed to the summit, he explained the geology, history and current culture of the area. He gave us time to explore the country at the top of the world and the entire experience was extraordinary. He went above and beyond upon our return to Venice, and after dropping off the other passengers, he dropped us at our hotel on the Mainland. I enthusiastically recommend him as a guide and this tour company. I will definitely call Viator again.

This was the best part of our trip. It was the day before we were due to leave Venice and this was very different from the rest of Venice.
A beautiful day, a lovely drive and a great guide who drove us and showed us around. Vincenzo had good knowledge of the places and a great sense of humour. His passion for what he does shows in the form of customer service.

This was a fantastic tour: educational, exciting, and simply spectacular views. There is only one problem, and that involves the instructions provided about the meeting place. There are two Tronchetto canal stops. The first (coming from the interior of Venice) is a market place, The second is a parking facility. Make sure that you get off at the second stop. Almost half of our tour group reported to the first stop. We eventually joined together, but it did delay the trip a little. This problem could easily be eliminated by a revision to the meeting instructions. I hope this will catch the attention of the Venice tour company.
