    not a great experience.
    Diptika_P, May 2023
    The boat operator showed up late, then we he had to get paperwork sorted out at a nearby location before we could begin our tour. During the boat tour, we were dropped off at the Bellagio dock (this was a stuggle for him as his boat was not functioning well and quite scary for us). We were told to meet him back at the dock at a given time, he did not show up for 45 mins after that time, so then he rushed us back to Como instead of doing a stop at another town as he had told us at the beginning of the boat tour. It was too expensive a tour, given the delays and the condition of the boat .... I would not recommend a tour with this group.

    Hello, sorry for your bad experience on the lake. You are rating a wrong company, please check better the name of whom you booked with. We don't have your name among the clients, and the boat you are rating only works between June and September. At this moment it is still out of the water :)
    Great boat, great captain

    Claudio was a great guide and a captain, he showed us around in Como Lake and he had a very positive vibe. I would recommend anyone to book the trip without even having a doubt in mind. Always would be happy to book again!
