Don't mix multiple languages on the same tour!
Roman_A, Sep 2023
I liked the tour and the guide, but I don't like that English and German groups are combined in the same bus, and the guide had to repead everuthing twice on 2 languages. When I am buying English tour, I expect it to be in English - not mixed with some other languages. I am sure the German speaking guys felt the same way. They paid for German language tour and had to sit and listen something else they didn't understand. If I knew this upfront, I wouldn't buy this tour.
A long day
Sue_C, Sep 2023
We had a good guide and the visit covered all around Lake Garda. It is a very long day so would recommend taking plenty of water especially as it was a very hot day, and be prepared to do a lot of walking. Suited us but may not suit everyone. We enjoyed the trip.
Around Lake Garda on a whim
Andrew_S, Aug 2023
The Tour ended up being a very full day of circumnavigation of Lake Garda including a ferry ride to Riva and a boat excursion around the tip of Sirmione (Extra $10 Euro) A great trip around an amazing historical and geographically stunning Lake Garda. Frederick was a great tour guide and Sebastion, a great driver especially in those Mussolini Tunnels on the Lombardy side of the lake. Full of history & beauty. Perhaps a little too long on a very hot day but still agreat experience.
WOW! Spectacular Lake Garda and its VILLAGES.
Maree_S, Aug 2023
Beautiful locations to see. Hostess gave great information. Saw all tge hoy spots around the lake. Wish we had more time to be more relaxed but theres a lot to see. Would do this tour again.
Not worth it!
Darrell_T, Aug 2023
My wife and I took this excursion in mid August. Most of the tour was spent riding the bus in horrible traffic. We boarded the bus in Sirmione and rode for about 2.5 hours to Limone, spent a short time there (hot and crowded), then took a boat ride to Malcesine, re-boarded the bus to return to Sirmione. When we got to Peschiera, they asked us to exit the bus and told us a taxi would pick us up “in just a couple of minutes” to take us to Sirmione. We waited for about 20 minutes on the side of road in the hot sun. The hop on hop off ferry system is a much better way to see Lake Garda area. This was a total waste of a vacation day and waste of money.
Lovely towns, limited time
Aaron_S, Jul 2023
We spent time in Limone and Malcesine but really needed much longer. Both places are fantastic but it was such a rush to see as much as possible in the allotted time. I've still given the tour 4 stars because of the scenic drive, the friendly guide and the fact that we thoroughly enjoyed our time in both towns. We just came away desperate for more!
Alison_B, Jun 2023
Getting back to hotel was very boring to long on a very crowded ferry. No guide on start of trip and was all very boring and very old passengers on trip as trip was not for the elderly
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Good morning, I'm sorry the tour was boring for you. You probably didn't read the itinerary well before booking, as our tour of the lake has been like this for years and we always have numerous positive reviews demonstrating how wonderful this tour is. in just one day it is possible to discover the entire lake, stopping to visit the most popular villages with the guide! I hope you will find other interesting and more youthful tours, before joining the "very old passengers" too Cheers, Riccardo
Beauty all around Lake Garda
Margaret_T, Jun 2023
A wonderful tour with an informative guide - the only critiicism would be the lack of either an on-board WC or the opportunity of a toilet stop en route as there it was a long coach journey with people of all ages on the tour.
esdag, Sep 2019
Bought this excursion because of Riva del Garda. Due to some traffic on the way, the itinerary was unilaterally changed to prolong the stay in Malcisine and scrap Riva completely. No consultation no nothing- just told what will happen. Shortening the Stop over in other stops could still have accommodated Riva, but there was none of that. ☹️
Response from Host, Sep 2019
Hi, i'm really so sorry to read this reviews.. that was not our fault.. There was an accident between two cars and the road was unusable. No way to reach Riva del Garda, except wait. Would you have preferred to wait in the bus and thus risk skipping the other stages too? We decided the better way to see Malcesine and Limone and do the Boat Trip in time (unfortunately it start at programmed time).. This happens... Hope the next time you can enjoy another tours with us in a perfect program! :)
Full day Lake Garda tour
Hilton_G, Jul 2019
Frederic the tour leader was knowledgeable, fluent and personable. The tour was well organized and exceeded expectations. Frederick's knowledge of the history, culture and geography of the region was very informative.
All good
tedreg, Jul 2019
A great introduction to Lake Garda. Its a bit whistle stop,but gives you a chance to see where on the lake to would like to visit for longer. The driver and guide were very good and kept the journey interesting. Its a long day but well worth it at the beginning of a Lake Garda stay.
Lake Garda day tour
Adrian_D, Jul 2019
Had good time great tour and Frederick was a great guide informative and witty ! Only slight gripe was only 45 minutes to look round sirmione (although was longer if you didn’t do boat trip- which was a must ) , all in all was a great days trip !!!!
Best tour of lake Garda
colin_k, Jun 2019
Really is the best tour to see the villages/towns around the lake. Tour guide was very informative and had a sence of humour. Stopped for around an hour at each place (Riva for two hours so you could have lunch) for you to wander. Very comfortable coach. Will do this tour again. Colin UK

Overall a good experience. Monte Baldo was not included in the tour as promised.

Lynn V, Oct 2017
Unfortunately we had a really foggy day so wasn't able to see the spectacular sights well. That said, the day was very enjoyable. Loved the towns we stopped in , the ability to see all the various parts of the lake and our guide was terrific. If the weather had been better it would have been spectacular.
The trip was brilliant. Well...
Brian W, Oct 2017
The trip was brilliant. Well organised and did exactly what was written in the literature. Our guide and driver were also brilliant. Our travellers were mixed languages and our tour guide was very good at balancing her descriptions equally well in all languages. The only disappointment was the misty/foggy weather but that could not be helped and did not spoil our experience.
Very beautiful scenery, great tour...
James H, Oct 2017
Very beautiful scenery, great tour guide. I would say that the towns mostly cater to tourists, so if you do not like that, probably not the way to view it. However, the lake and scenery are very much worth seeing. The day we went was cloudy, and that was too bad, because we could not see the mountains. If we had, I am sure I would be raving!
The tour was excellent if you don't...
Peter L, Aug 2017
The tour was excellent if you don't have too much time available. Our guide, Cinzia, was a fountain of information. The towns where we stopped were very picturesque and well-worth seeing. It was a beautiful day.
Well what a full on day, it was...
thejeffs29, Jul 2017
Well what a full on day, it was great! From 8.30am until 7.00pm it was really good value but you don't put all the information on your website what the whole day entails . Even though it was a full on day it was a great day to see the whole of Lake Garda in one day and the information from the tour guide was really good. So, the only thing that spoilt the day was the 10 Euro extra cost for a random 10 minute boat ride which was a bit of a con if you ask me. If you are going to offer this then it should be in with the cost of the trip as you are really made to feel you have to participate!! Bit naughty really as we were a family of 4 so another 40 Euros extra.
What a fantastic trip well worth the...
jacko, Jul 2017
What a fantastic trip well worth the money, and our tour guide Frederick was let us see so many other options when visiting lake Garda again, which we definitely will! We have used Viator before in NYC and we have been very happy with service thank you
