Great tour! Only one other couple. Guide was knowledgeable and pointed out out the sites. The tour gave us time to shop in Bellagio and the cruise down Lake Como was beautiful and relaxing. I would recommend this tour.

Sunday on the waters of Lake Como.
Daniel_S, July 2023
We had spent. a wonderful day with our personal guide Oleg. He was knowledgeable, patient and flexible as we traveled with three boys ranging from age 8 to 15. Exploring the towns of Bellagio and Varenna with Oleg and experiencing the clear waters of Lake Como was amazing.
Nice and easy day trip to Lake Como

This guided tour had just the right amount of guided time and alone time. We wanted the experience of taking the train and ferries, but needed the assurance of someone else figuring out the timing for each. Our guide was knowledgable, calm, friendly, well-experienced to the point of knowing exactly where to stand for the train door before the train even arrived. The weather was not the most ideal for a summer day, but we still got some great photos! I highly recommend this tour.
Worth it. Renzo was great.

Renzo was really great guide and very nice person. Especially liked Villa Carlotta and his explanations of the important art work there. Very good trip and so helpful to have someone deal with train and boat tickets and times. Thanks!!!
Lake Como - Worthwhile Tour

The 2+ hour ferry ride was interesting. We enjoyed seeing the beautiful old villas and area scenery. Our guide, Beatrice (I think that is correct) was informative and allowed us to spend time at stops along the way as we wanted. Her English was excellent!

Wonderful day spent at Lake Como
Sherlene_C, June 2022
This tour was amazing! I had booked it thinking it would be a small group tour but turns out we were blessed enough to be the only ones on the tour and had a private guided experience to ourselves. My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves and learnt so much during the tour. our tour guide Pietro was knowledgeably and entertaining. He shared many things about Lake como and the towns in general. We spent a very lovely day with him and we cannot recommend him and this tour enough. I strongly recommend anyone thinking about going to tour Lake Como to book this tour!! We had no regrets at all booking this tour. Thank you so much Pietro for an amazing day and for giving us your time and energy . We will always look back to our Lake Como excursion with you with much happiness! :)
