Our tour guide did a great job in getting through highway traffic and safely navigating the mountain roads while teaching us about the Dolomites, the towns and giving us many stops, even spotting a baby deer!

Loved the stops and the scenery on the way. Although stops were short I didn't feel rushed in most, because he was receptive to the needs (bathroom etc) and there were a lot of them, which we wouldn't be able to if it these weren't short. Even some surprise stops! Overall loved it and would recommend. Our best day in Venice!
