What people are saying about Dolomites
Chinzia was a wonderful guide from start to finish. We had considered self-driving this trip but opted for the tour instead. We were glad of our decision as Chinzia knew all the best viewpoints for the locations as well as some off the beaten track strolls. One little surprise was a short walk to the base of a rock face where some marmots came and had a look at us! This trip was the highlight of our Italian journey and we have some National Geographic standard photos to take home as memories!
Our guide Simone was sensational. He was friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable and good fun to be with. Also a good driver. Starting at Piazzale Roma in Venice, we were able to locate Simone easily, due to the clear directions we were given. The trip was unhurried and informative, with regular stops. It was an easy and very enjoyable day, exploring a gloriously beautiful part of Northern Italy, that while only two hours from Venice, was an entirely different experience. Highly recommended.
We have a great day with Lukas from Bolzano, to the villages in the valley. Go up and down several passes, he did even show us some gems/perfect photo spots on the way. Also, he has in-depth knowledge about the region including all the mountain names, valley, and history of villages. It was a long day, from 9AM till 6PM, but we enjoy every minute of that and would really recommend this tour for all people who have one day to explore Dolomites.
We loved the tour but would have happily spent less time in Cortina or not gone there at all and spent more time at the lake and/or at the top of the mountain viewing the 3 peaks. We appreciate that Cortina is a famous location and some people like to shop there but all the people on our tour (including ourselves) chose to tour the Dolomite mountains to experience their grandeur and see the stunning and magnificent views in that area.
The arrangements were well explained and met and the timetable was well adhered to. We were given good explanations at the various places we stopped and the driver was very forthcoming with information and appropriate advice. One thing which would have helped would have been some ongoing commentary about the region etc as we drove through - this would have added to our knowledge and understanding of the region.
