Pleasant enough but rushed at times
Lynda_P, Sept 2023
It was a wonderful tour but too rushed in Lake Como. More time needed to explore or have the guide slow down. Guide was knowledgeable and attentive.
Bad experience
Diana_S, Aug 2023
Your Turist guide was so rushing and running which was not normal Any other group around us was not like that Horrifying experience I would not recommend this to anyone else Plus I have talked to other people in the group they have the same opinion!!
Short on time
Gregory_E, Aug 2023
Wish we had more time in Lugano. Maybe the tour should leave an hour earlier to add that time. Also wish our tour guide would have used radios for the Lake Como boat ride so we could understand more about the area. Group was all split up because of other people on board.

Ok but not great

Minimal guidance, radios given out were defective, we went by coach but on the return part of the trip we were put on the train back to Milan.
Great experience

Ciara - our guide was very pleasant to work with and so much fun. Thank you for a great and fun experience
Spectacular view of the Lakes
Rajat_R, Mar 2023
Lugano was spectacular as intimidated. The boat ride on lake Cumo was every bit spectacular as well. The tour guide did an excellent job keeping us on schedule.
Lake Como and Lugano Switzerland
Julian_W, Jan 2023
The Lake Como and Lugano tour was great. We stopped over in the city of Como, then caught a boat around the Lake for around an hour. The tour bus took us across the Swiss border to Lugano. We had 2 hours to see the city. Was a very nice day tour.
Worth it !
Bibi_B, Jan 2023
Booked this day trip to visit lake Como and Lugano in one day. Najma was a great tour guide and we enjoyed the boat ride on Lake Como. If you book the Lugano option be aware that the bus does not bring you back to the original meeting point. With this option, you will have to take the train from Lugano back to Milano Centrale. Despite this confusion, I enjoyed the day trip and would recommend it.
Amazing day
Paul_O, Nov 2022

smcdermott6583, Oct 2022
The entire experience was unbelievable! Alot of the credit was because of our guide. I can’t believe I didn’t take her name. She was extremely knowledgeable and her passion for travel and history for both Italy and Switzerland were fantastic!!
Very comfortable,...

Very pleasant time
Patricia_Z, July 2022
We had a very pleasant time. The sightseeing was really wonderful. The day tour was perfect to know the lake and Lugano. We had enough time to have lunch and go around before meeting the group in the end of the day. Our tour guide was nice, with a good communication.
Fabiola_M, July 2021
The trip was change to Lake Como and Bellagio. Not what we had plan and this tour price was less money, where is our refund?
Good package
Albert_M, Nov 2019
The tour guide Judie is very nice and accommodating. The Lake Como cruise is very nice. Also the visit to Lugano Switzerland is worth the trip.
El itinerario nos pareció estupendo.
Dolores_G, Jan 2020
Hemos quedado encantados. Una excursión de un dia muy bien organizada. Aunque el tour era en inglés y nosotros somos españoles, la guia hizo todo lo podible para que no perdieramos ninguna información importante. Una muy buena experiencia.
