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!
Extremely pleasurable day-trip thanks to our driver Stefano: he is very knowledgeable, passionate, and super nice to talk to. We got what we were here for: beautiful sights and vistas, stress-free transportation by car, and a flavour of the so popular Dolomites in just one day. 100% satisfied and worth every penny. Thank you, Sir!
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.
