My tour guide, Alex, is fantastic. His travel plan is well executed. He patiently explains to us different scenes. We even talk about a bit history, culture and Italian opera. We very much enjoy this daily trip!


I have travelled to many countries and the Dolomites area probably has one of the most awesome sceneries.


Alex was knowledgeable, professional, flexible and friendly. We had the best time and stood in awe of the variety and splendor of the Dolomite Mountains. Thank you Alex for a memorable trip!


The tour was gorgeous, mountains and lakes and valleys are breath taking. Beyond that though, Alessandro is an excellent guide and extremely accommodating. His flexibility and guidance during the tour was welcome given the inclement weather, which he was very on top of. He helped us make decisions based on which stops would be best when due to visibility and rain. Additionally he was open to doing the trip in reverse due to where we were staying which made our entire trip much easier. Extremely pleasant, very informative/knowledgable about the history of the area, and a great driver as well. Highly recommend!


Spectacular and comprehensive day tour. Breathtaking views from summit of Sass Pordoi and at mountain passes and lakes. Well-chosen restaurant at Cortina d'Ampezzo. Alex is an enthusiastic, considerate and informative guide.

We spent an incredible day with Alessandro touring the eastern Dolomites! He picked us up in the city centre close to our Airbnb in a Mercedes Benz Vito that was stocked with everything we might need - bottles of water, extra jackets, car sickness medicine. Everything we did was totally tailored to us and what we wanted out of our tour - whether we wanted to spend 5 minutes in each location or over an hour, make rest/car sickness stops, food breaks, etc., Alessandro made it happen. We visited in November, which is the low season, so we were very fortunate to have most locations to ourselves. Alessandro knows an incredible amount of information about his Dolomites and did everything in his power to make sure we could see them from the best vantage points possible. We also felt completely safe with his expert driving as he clearly knows the roads of the mountains like the back of his hand. I highly recommend taking this tour with Alessandro and we would absolutely take any of his other tours in the future. I’ve not come across many guides like him who cares so deeply about what he does and the experiences he provides to his clients. For me, his tour was the highlight of our trip.


All the places we went to was great The cable car is only 3 minutes ride & the view is amazing We did some shopping ( in Cortina d'Ampezzo ) .. the guid took us to a great shop The lakes were all beautiful , you can see some ducks swimming around There is boat to rent .. some need good paddling experience The best thing in our tour was the guid He is an expert who will gave you an amazing information , he is so kind & fluent in English and made our trip memorizable & enjoyable Highly recommended The trip was a bit exhausted to the small children Do not forget to take extra waters & changes for the kids .. in case of any accident happen

Alessandro was a fantastic guide! He was very friendly and accommodating. He picked us up at our Airbnb, then led us on a very informative and thorough tour of the Dolomites. The van was very comfortable with great AC and water. He was an excellent driver on tough roads. We loved our tour and recommend him highly to anyone visiting the area. It was such a wonderful day - one we’ll remember for a long time. Highlight of our trip to Italy!


Alex was a fantastic tour guide, managing to give us a full day learning about and seeing the Eastern Dolomites. His enthusiasm for the spectacular scenery added to our enjoyment. His goal was to make sure we got everything we wanted from our time. He definitely met our expectations and more. I highly recommend this tour!!


The lakes were fantastic and the tour guide , Alex was a pleasure to speak with. The entire Alpine landscape was picturesque. Dolomites are beautiful ❤️
