The trip was fantastic and the tour guides were very helpful and had plenty of knowledge of the beautiful places we visited I would recommend this tour to family and friends. I would also like to thank getyourguide for a smooth hassle free booking process.

Very enjoyable day. While the gondola was crowed, they. Moved everyone efficiently and view was with it. I’d suggest you put the bus center on your site so it can be found easily.

I just feel that the tram was a bit pricey for what it was. Gondola was excellent. Overall our day trip off our cruise was a very enjoyable day
