    Must do activity!
    Olivia_C, Mar 2023
    Best experience ever. Beautiful view of the lake in the morning and tour guide was so lovely, friendly and informative. Gave us a bottle of water and a dry bag for our things. Then surprised us with Prosecco later on. He even gave us a goodie bag at the end. The views from the kayaks were just phenomenal and unforgettable. Would 100% recommend to anyone visiting Bellagio or the como area. Must do activity!

    My husband and I went on this kayak tour during our honeymoon and had the most incredible time!! The instructor gave each person the time they needed to kayak to each destination point as well as rest to enjoy the amazing views. It was an absolute highlight of our trip and we highly recommend this tour for everyone!
    Amazing way to start the day
    Luca_C, Oct 2022
    What an excellent short trip onto the waters of Lake Como. I loved kayaking around as it gave me the independence to go closer to caves and rock formations that were interesting as well as orient myself in the best way to see the amazing views of the lake. It is possible to take the 9am tour coming from Milan, but it was a very early morning, well worth it though!!
    Unique adventurous way to experience Bellagio and Lake Como
    DaveandKatie_K, Oct 2022
    We had the most fantastic time!! The owner and guide was very professional, wonderful at leafing us around Bellagio peninsula and sharing history and many facts of the area. The views were breathtaking and such a special way to see the area! We even had a special surprise at the end. You will love this unique experience on Lake Como!
    A different and spectacular perspective on the lake

    A perfect way to see the lake up close. Michele was a great guide and had a detailed knowledge of history and an engaging way of imparting the information.
    Great Experience
    Katie_M, Sep 2022

    I Worked Hard For The Money

    What a morning workout! Signed up for the 9am tour and I was coming from Como. The bus takes about an hour to get to the stop and the bus doesn’t have any indication what the stops are in the screen. So ask the bus driver to let you know. Then it was about a 16 minute walk from the bus stop to the location. Watch the YouTube video if you need indications that you’re going the right way. (2 euros if you want to use the bathroom in the hotel). The kayaks were heavy and harder to paddle for one person. But it was really calm waters and just HOT because the sun is right on you. So wear extra sun screen!! Had a great time learning about the area and thanks for the extra treat at the end to kick off the morning! The tour took a lot of of me and the heat, so make sure you stay hydrated or take time to fully rest before venturing off to see the town center.
    Must do!!!

    We had an awesome time! It was our first time kayaking and it was super easy and fun. The instructor is great!!! Told us facts about the different places in Como along the way. It’s a great way to explore the lake. We went at 9am and it was perfect. I highly recommend it.

    Unflexible service
    Hallgrimur_J, Jul 2022
    Wanted to change the booking but there was no chance to have anything done at Viator or the service provider. Could not use my booking and lost 144 usd.
    Being able to see Lake...
    Adriana_S, May 2022
    Being able to see Lake Como from the lake was amazing! We were able to go at our own pace and didn't feel rushed:)
    Great experience with great guide
    Nihaal_K, May 2022
    This was one of the best things we did in Italy. The kayak tour is a fantastic way to see Como. Our guide was fantastic and very friendly. He was on time, professional, and provided us with great recommendations for things to eat/drink/see in the area. He is a great vendor and the experience was FANTASTIC.
    The best Kayak tour in Bellagio!!!!!

    We had the most incredible experience with Mich! He was so accommodating and insightful, we learned a lot about the area and he gave us the best recommendations! This was the highlight of our weekend in Como and I have been sharing this tour with all of my friends! Thank you so much for an unforgettable kayak experience, Mich!
    Awesome tour!

    Michele was the most amazing guide! There was an issue with my booking, so he didn’t know I was coming, but he still set everything up extremely quickly and gave me a wonderful individualized experience. He was extremely knowledgeable about Bellagio and the surrounding area, and he is so friendly! Definitely recommend this tour.
    A perfect way to see Como
    Alex_W, Sep 2021
    We had a wonderful time on this trip! I would recommend it to everyone that wants to see Como / Bellagio from a different perspective (away from all the tourists). The guide was very knowledgeable, thoughtful, and fun to spend time with.
    Worth the time and the money!
    Elizabeth_B, Sep 2021
    We had the perfect weather, which allowed for a fantastic time out on the lake. The guide was very knowledgeable and invested in making sure everyone in the group was included and had a good time. We did not feel rushed, or out of our element. There was even a special surprise at the end. I would highly recommend this tour again!
    Lauren_D, Aug 2020
    The trip is a must do in Bellagio for those who love the water. Mich was a great guide and we felt very safe. We even stopped for a peach Bellini. 5 stars!
    Very Fun and Just Right
    Jake_H, Sep 2019
    My wife and I did this excursion as part of our honeymoon and it was extremely fun. I would recommend that you have basic kayaking ability before doing this trip, as it can be a source of stress and there is no kayaking instruction given (just a brief safety course). Bring plenty of sunscreen for those bright days, but it really is a beautiful trip. You get to see mountainsides and cliffs up close in a way you cannot have from the ferries around Como. Our guide was also very kind and helpful with lots of information about the various places we went to, as well as good recommendations for what to do around Lake Como. Plus, the trip was topped off with some of his homemade bellini. The trip is just the right amount of time too -- we did not feel like it was too short or too long. Make sure to leave plenty of time in order to find the place though so you can be on time!
