    Good introduction to Bellagio.
    Susan_Y, Aug 2023
    We enjoyed seeing the villa gardens and the hamlets of Bellagio. Our guide also gave us a history of the craftsmanship in the area as well which we enjoyed. The weather was poor on the day we went but I assume that the tour would be more spectacular on nice days. Be prepared for lots of walking. We went back the next day to take advantage of the shopping!

    Finding out local spots and sampling various foods was wonderful. Sabrina was friendly, down to earth and I felt like was hanging with my best friend for the day.
    Sabrina and her wonderful tour of Lake Como!

    Sabrina was r guide- It was an 8 hr fabulous tour of some of the best Lake Como had to offer ! Sabrina has the most wonderful personality and made the day perfect and was extremely knowledgeable about the area. Our lunch was magnificent with a gorgeous view and the Bablenieo mansion house n garden tour was wonderful. The entire day was perfect! We were thrilled! I highly recommend asking for her specifically and this tour! She loves her job and it shows. We travel constantly all over the world and this tour is definitely worth your time and money. Thank you thank ! I must advise VIATOR however- I initially made reservations for a private tour similar to this one 9 months ago. A woman named Violetta contacted 2 weeks ago and canceled 3 of my private tours stating because I made reservations so early she canceled them. I re scheduled them immediately and she cancelled a second time stating I had to do group tours and my guides were all suck 2 weeks ahead of time…suspicious I think! So I rescheduled group tours - luckily I got Sabrina and it was basically a private tour and it was perfect But I warn you about greedy Violetta! She should be let go! I made reservations 9 months inadvance to secure private tours because I do not hear well and appreciate personal service. Please do something about this unprofessionalism- It is uncalled for and the first time in the 12 years I have used VIATOR I have been disappointed with them- But I loved Sabrina and her tour! She was wonderful- Violetta was horrible and unprofessional!
    Response from Host, July 2022
    Thank you Holly for your nice review. Sabrina enjoyed herself as well with you. This tour was booked on the 9th of July 2022 and the tour was on the 22nd. I don't know who is Violetta and I got only one booking request from you or your travel consultant. I am the only owner of this travel agency (Elena Pettinicchio) and Sabrina works for me. I usually guide these tours myself but I was abroad last week and she helped me with my clients. Enjoy the rest of your holiday in Italy and looking forward to meeting you as well next time. Take care ! Elena

    Bellagio and Villa Balbianello were beautiful; however, personal connection to event created memorable experience. Elena introduced us to the local history, culture, friends, foods, and the hidden hangouts. We had great experience from the tour.
