This tour was amazing! I did it know such a beautiful city full of vibrant life existed in Italy. So much to explore. Donatella was such an amazing guide. So knowledgeable and passionate and such attention to detail. At the end of the tour I felt I gained a friend. She was so much more than a guide. Cannot wait to return to Bolzano!

The tour was very nice and the group very friendly but the driver she was aggressive when specialy late for few minutes ... but in general Nice tour .

Beautiful tour, lots of lovely stops for photos and exploring. A great taste of the Dolomites without having to spend a fortune on lodging/food.
