    Me and my friends really enjoyed the private trip because there were only us. Our driver and guide Simone was the best because he is knowledgeable and gave us really good recommendations where to eat and what to do. Trip was breathtaking because we stopped at the picturesque places. We really recommend to book this trip because it takes you to the best points in mountains. The minivan was comfortable and with air conditioner.

Worth every penny! Lots of sightseeing in the beautiful Dolomites with a knowledgable guide. You take a small van and drive throughout the day with beautiful stops along the way. The longest we spent was about 90 minutes at a beautiful lake for lunch. There is a lot of curves on the mountain roads so be prepared for that if you get car sick and you will be good. Would recommend this tour!

It was a very lovely day. Our guide was very nice, knowledgeable and speaks perfect English. She took care of us really well and we learned a lot from her. A long journey but definitely worth it. We took great pictures and memories.

I have an excellent trip and the Italian Guide is Simone who is a plus factor that makes this an excellent trip! I am so happy with this and it was really nice. Dolomites is worth to visit for! :)

Just a heavenly experience! Speechless!! Mountain lovers must go there.
