Great guide and beautiful lake
Jill_L, May 2023
On the bus, Stefano gave us great background about Milan and Lake Como. He is engaging, knowledgeable, and funny. We enjoyed an hour in Como, a 2 hour ferry, and a couple of hours in Bellagio. Stefano gave us two stops with nice photo opportunities on the way out of Bellagio. We’ve done 10 tours on this vacation and Stefano was by far the best guide we had. Thank you!

The tour was amazing. Sonya our guide did a great job. She was very knowledgeable and made the trip fun. Would highly recommend this tour
Nice bus, good boat ride...
Anne_M, May 2023
Nice bus, good boat ride with guide pointing out mansions and history of Lake Como. Bellagio was a beautiful stop, could have stayed longer than 2 hours. Short time on the bus from Milan.
Take the train to Como and explore on your own, don't recommend this tour
Diana_A, May 2023
The boarding point was chaotic, it was raining and none of the buses had a clear board stating the name of the tour/or tour company. The tour guides themselves did not have a clue on which bus to board, after last min. change of tour guide, we finally took off. The ride itself wasnt bad but the bus was no "luxury". The tour guide barely spoke till we got to Lake como. She was difficult to follow during the walk around town and made no attempt to keep the group close or interact on the ferry. Our group was almost the last to board which meant we didnt get seats with view and had to move around to see anything outside. We saw various tour guides moving around checking with their groups constantly while ours came just before getting off at bellagio to tell us to disembark. Lake Como and Bellagio were both beautiful places but you are essentially paying a lot just for transportation(bus and boat). A better option would be to board a train to Lake Como and take a ferry to explore your choice of lakeside town(s). Unless you are short on time or dont want to be burderned with the logistics, skip the tour.

AA+ tour
Cecilia_F, May 2023
Anna’s orientation and stories were the best, we had a great time since our departure at Milano, our way to Como, and lunch at Bellagio, perfect timing for a great day! Totally recommend AA+ team for Anna and Antonio, our best guides.
Well worth making the time to explore.
VICKI_G, May 2023
We loved our day. We enjoyed exploring Como, after Marina gave as quick walk through about the history. We then caught the ferry to Belaggio and we saw all the villas and villages along the way. George wasn't home. Marina was lovely and was a great guide.
find another tour or do it yourself
robyn_s, May 2023
unfortunately could not recommend this tour ..bus left 30min late as overbooked guide had to leave bus and catch a train and therefore no commentary fir the trip ..the guide has limited english and could not answer any questions ..boat also overbooked and no seat fir the 2hour boat ride …scenery was beautiful and group were fun but was expensive and a lot of sitting on the small bus not the luxury bus described and no commentary as described …as we were to leave bekagio last visit was cancelled when guide realized we still didn’t have enough seats and had to again return by train …no explanation able to be given as she did not have enough english to explain …overall do it yourself or find another tour this is not what was described .this tour was meant to be a highlight for many people in the group di there was a lot of disappointment

Fix the sound system
Michele_N, Apr 2023
The tour was good… the weather a bit lousy at the end of the day. But the sound system on the bus was very patchy and the earbuds uncomfortable. That meant often you just couldn’t hear the tour guide who was very kind and informative. Really needs to be fixed because I feel I just couldn’t hear important information
Response from Host, May 2023

Amazing Tour
rothelltanhechanova, Apr 2023
The tour was smooth and not time-constrained. We were given the time to explore on our own and at the same time Antonella also gave us information about the places. She was very cheery and full of recommendations which we really appreciated. She took us to some places that have less tourists so we were able to take pictures without the crowd. We highly recommend this tour.
Lovely trip
SandyNhiPham_D, Apr 2023
Lovely trip, everything was smooth and we had a good day. Our guide was so sweet and we learnt alot about the beautiful como and bellagio.
Well worth every penny!!
CarolMeredith, Apr 2023
The bus was comfortable and our group was about 20 people. Our tour guide, Stefano, was knowledgeable, engaging and thoughtful. We were given headsets so Stefano's presentation was easily heard. Had brief tour of Como, then free time to have a delicious piece of focaccia at divine bakery. Boat ride was beautiful. Stefano informed us of villas of famous people. Had delicious lunch in Bellagio with free time. Bus stopped at a couple of vistas for picture taking. Highly recommend!!
Heather_S, Apr 2023
80% of the tour we couldn't hear because their listening devices wouldn't work. The remaining 20% the audio was SO low we barely heard anything even with the volume fully up. We said we couldn't get our devices to work multiple times and spent the rest of the time plugging our other ear trying to hear the audio or asking the guide to adjust her mic. Our guide tried to help but after several tries she stopped. We missed almost ALL the information. We let the company and the guide know and they did NOTHING and refused to make it right - I’ve been on tons of tours but this was thee worst. Horrible customer service, there are other companies that offer this tour and I recommend going with one of them.
Response from Host, Apr 2023

Joan_G, Apr 2023
So many, the ferry ride was beautiful and our tour guide Simona was upbeat, informative, and personable.
Lake Como is a must see!
Jeffrey_H, Mar 2023
Visiting Bellagio was awesome. Scenery was spectacular. The food was great and everyone was very accommodating. Wine in Bellagio second to none.
Rosa_Z, Mar 2023
This was an excellent tour! Highly highly recommend! The free time in Bellagio did not feel rushed. You get some free time in como as well and it was more than enough! Can’t recommend this tour enough!! Loved every second of it!
Well Organized and memorable trip
Rhonda_A, Oct 2022
We loved the town of Como, the beautiful two-hour boat ride on Lake Como and the picturesque town of Bellagio. Our tour guide was fantastic and gave us a wealth of information in the two towns and also of what we were seeing on our Lake Como boat ride. It was especially nice to have no worries of getting to Como from Milan on the bus.
Lake Como
Tracy_E, Sept 2022
Great tour and Lorenzo was fantastic. I would highly recommend it. The bus ride home was so entertaining
Perfect Lake Como/Bellaire Tour!
Veronica_R, Sept 2022
A must if visiting Milan! Lake Como is gorgeous and this day trip was perfect. Didn't feel rushed at all and had plenty of time to explore Como and Bellagio on my own. The scenic drive at the end is spectacular. Our guide was great and the bus was comfy. Highly recommend this tour!
