Me and my friends really enjoyed the private trip because there were only us. Our driver and guide Simone was the best because he is knowledgeable and gave us really good recommendations where to eat and what to do. Trip was breathtaking because we stopped at the picturesque places. We really recommend to book this trip because it takes you to the best points in mountains. The minivan was comfortable and with air conditioner.

Tobogganing is a winter sport for everyone, and lets you have fun zooming through the bends at high speed or more sedately, depending on your mood. On your own, as a couple or in a group, you can push off with your feet before using your feet and upper body to steer. Child's play, but not just for the kids! Once in the ski resort, you will use a modern gondola lift to climb to the starting point of the toboggan run at an altitude of 1,830 meters-above-sea-level. The toboggan track is famous because due to its being equipped with an artificial snow system that allows its use even when there is no natural snow, and because it is equipped with a lighting system for fantastic night descents. The track is 2.5-kilometers long, and the difference in altitude is 280 meters. The track is considered to be of a simple difficulty, making it perfectly suitable for adults and children alike.

Worth every penny! Lots of sightseeing in the beautiful Dolomites with a knowledgable guide. You take a small van and drive throughout the day with beautiful stops along the way. The longest we spent was about 90 minutes at a beautiful lake for lunch. There is a lot of curves on the mountain roads so be prepared for that if you get car sick and you will be good. Would recommend this tour!
It was a very lovely day. Our guide was very nice, knowledgeable and speaks perfect English. She took care of us really well and we learned a lot from her. A long journey but definitely worth it. We took great pictures and memories.
I have an excellent trip and the Italian Guide is Simone who is a plus factor that makes this an excellent trip! I am so happy with this and it was really nice. Dolomites is worth to visit for! :)
