    Viator Villa Balbianello and Como
    Rajen_P, July 2023
    Villa Balbianello visit was memorable. Guide Viollette was knowledgeable. Viator Tour was very high priced and not worth the $210. I would give guide 5 star and tour value may be 3 star.
    A Memorable Day

    We loved our day ( actually 2 days) with Violetta! We had so much fun and learned so much about the area. It was a great tour and a great workout ( walking uphill to the Villa in high heat) but we managed quite nicely and was glad we did it.
    One of our favorite tours in Italy!

    Violetta was an amazing tour guide! Incredibly knowledgeable, personable, and fun! She gave a great tour, helped us take amazing photos, and really learn and enjoy Como and the lake. Would definitely recommend!

    Michele was an excellent guide! I really appreciated his insight and information. Lake Como area is gorgeous and it was really helpful to have him navigate ferries, etc. Recommending to friends and family.
    Great knowledge, good company
