Justin was our driver and guide for this amazing trip. The Dolomites are absolutely awesome to behold. It's unfortunate that there is no time to hike but lunch was good and the views were spectacular.

We had an absolutely fantastic day! It snowed heavily for a while but we had excellent drivers and felt very safe. We had fun with them too, having snowball fights by the lake. We gelled very well as a group and enjoyed one another's company. The meal at lunch time was also excellent.

This was an incredible day - definitely worth doing! Our driver Justin was not only a great driver but full of information about the towns and even the names of each peak. We had plenty of stops to take photos of majestic views that just kept getting better as the day went on. Make sure your camera is fully charged because it's sure to be used to the max! Highly recommended if you have a spare day in Venice and want to see a spectacularly different side of Italy.

Not to be missed. The splendor of the Dolomites is fully equal to the beauty of Venice. Our guide Martin was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful and made an entirely enjoyable tour. The weather was overcast and misty. Martin would stop at a location and wait and suddenly the mist would part and we could see the mountains. Magical. Wonderful meal at a local restaurant. Comfortable transport. Don't hesitate to book it.

This tour was great! Our guide was Justin and he altered the program a bit to make sure we had the best weather opportunities during our tour. He knew all of the great spots for taking beautiful photographs. It was a great city escape for the day!

The Alps were amazing! We have seen them for the first time in our lives, absolutely stunning!
The road up to the mountains was long, but it was worth it, and the car, Mercedes, was comfortable and fast. We made several stops, each had a story behind, and the driver was telling us those stories. He also proved to be a good photographer, so if you are not really into selfies, you know who can help take a couple of good photographs.
We passed beautiful turquoise mountain lakes, cold and crystal clear. The trip culminated in a stop near one of the mountain peaks, close to the clouds, 2400 metres above sea level, with temperature of only 10, although all the way down in Venice it was around 30, so the trip was a good escape from the tiring heat. The place was overlooking the valley below with the lakes we passed, and a million of other minute details that made the overall picture simply impressive.
We had the option of either buying a sandwich to have a quick lunch or going to a restaurant. Please mind that if you opt for the latter, you will have to forgo two or three stops, which you may regret afterwards.
To sum up, the trip was brilliant, interesting, and something you may never experience again in your life. I definitely recommend it! Best place I have ever been to so far!

Justin was our guide and he was great! This is the most breathtaking scenery, I have ever seen. He knew exactly where to stop and make the most of our day. The lunch was amazing and the day was just perfect. The pictures just don't do it justice, go and see for yourself.
