What a wonderful day, and a great break from fighting through the tourist masses in Venice! We visited Marostica, Bossino my favourite and had lunch in Asolo at own expense, then stopped at a villa in Maser with amazing frescoes. All three towns are absolutely charming, and so worth a visit. This tour is a great way to access these places, as it's not easy to get here without a car. Definitely recommended - one of my favourite days in Italy!

Absolutely AMAZING!!! We had a such a great day with Giavanni. He was informative and kept the group on schedule without being pushy. He also gave us options on how we spent our time. The day we went it was extremely hot, he would get the van cooled down for us before we got in. He had a ton of knowledge of the area and his love for Italy was strong. This was such welcomed break from the busy tourist towns. If you can't decide if it is worth it, please go and see for yourself. It was one of our best days of vacation.
