Alex made a very interesting and spectacular day tour of the Dolomites and surrounding scenery. A comfortable drive and easy viewing from the his vehicle. We made many stops and enjoyed a delicious authentic lunch at the top of a mountain with breathtaking views of the Dolomites. Probably the most unexpected highlight of our Venice trip. A big thank you to Alex! Ciao!

Wow! We are so thankful for Alex's expertise along with his adventurous, generous, kind and humble spirit. On his tour my husband and I were able to sit back, relax and take in the breathtaking views of spots we NEVER could have gone on our own. Alex is an expert in the outdoors, he has extensive knowledge of food and Is an expert in wine thanks to his agricultural science background. Alex made sure my husband and I were very comfortable and happy our entire trip. Forever grateful! Highly recommend!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sara, I just realized I did not reply here yet It was really really great to meet and talk with you I'm happy when I meet open-minded and curious travelers who want to know as many things as possible about the area and about life in Italy! I hope I can come to visit you in Hawaii sooner or later! Ciao

First, Vincenza is a charming city that offers so much that the traditional cities lack; life still operating they way it was years ago. The wine tours were phenomenal. The wine operators were gracious, kind, and eager to explain the process of wine making. Our guide, Alex, treated us like royalty. This experience was second to none. We are already discussing our next trip back to Italy and stopping in Vincenza is definitely on our list (with Alex as our guide). Thanks so much Alex-it was wonderful
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Roy! It was great to meet you and I'm glad you decided to visit a less known area of the Veneto region! Hope to see you back soon! Ciao Alex

Alex can't control the weather, but even with the clouds and light rain, he did a great job. He is responsive and flexible enough to make adjustments as circumstances dictate. His instructions for finding him at the meeting spot were perfect. He provided a great narrative about the region and brought us to an amazing restaurant for a great meal. We asked for a Prosecco tasting which he arranged at a beautiful location. All together we had a wonderful day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mary Glad in the end we could make it work despite the weather! Some prosecco wine can fix a lot of things :-) Ciao Alex
Douglas BartlettCalgary, AB, Canada
Alex is a professional, has good English and driving skills, and who is chatty to make for a fine touring companion. Learned so much about life in Italy and Europe which adds to the depth of the travel experience. Alex was flexible to provide opportunities for what was important to us. Thus we browsed Cortina and focused on WW1 fighting and tunnel crawling on the Dolomite Mtn tops. Finished off visiting a gorgeous emerald green lake. Alex had no concern that the trip took 2 hrs over budget.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Douglas! Glad you enjoyed the tour. It was great to meet you and share some travel and life experiences! I will remember for a long time our little exploration on the WW1 tunnel! Ciao! Alex
Michael KowalskiUnited States
Alex was superb - a perfect day. I could not recommend him more highly!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Michael It was great to meet you and see how much you enjoyed the tour Hope to see you again if you come back to Italy! Alex
From first meeting with Alex it was obvious that the tour was about what we wanted to do and see. We were NOT disappointed. Alex was extremely informative about the area. He has a passion for nature and combined with his historical knowledge made this a fantastic experience. He also answered our many questions about Italian life in general. If you want more than just a driver then Alex is the guide for you. We highly recommend this tour .
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Andrew. Thank you very much for your kind words! It was a pleasure to show you the beauty of the Dolomites and to learn something more about life in Australia too! Ciao Alex
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Michael for your feedback We have not been so lucky with the weather but I hope you can be back one day to see the beauty of the Dolomites on a clear sunny day! Best regards Alex

Thomas MatthewsTolland, CONNECTICUT, United States
Alex is an exceptional tour guide. He has great knowledge of the Dolomites and an exceptional personality. He made every aspect of the tour enjoyable and paid particular attention to our 17 year old grandson. He also gave us so much personal attention that we felt we knew him as a friend! We hated to see the tour end. We would highly recommend Alex and would use him as our guide again on our next trip to Venice.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Thomas It was great to meet you and your nice grandson! I'm really glad you enjoyed the tour and the beauty of the Dolomites Hope to see you again in the future Alex
