Excellent tour experience!!!
ralph, Apr 2023
The tour guide was excellent, explained everything very well, the bus was first class. The tour guide was on time and polite. We were behind schedule because other tourists came late and at every stop they took a million pictures, even though the tour guide mentioned many times what time was the meeting… The bus ride, the boat ride, and Lake Como & Bellagio was an excellent experience!!! The restaurant’s there were excellent!!! Super delicious!
Lake Como Tour
Cathy_J, Mar 2023
This was a nice relaxing tour to Lake Como. We visited Como and the Cathedral, enjoyed a boat ride to Bellagio and Varenna. We were giving free time to visit both Bellagio and Varenna. This was a nice day trip from Milan and an introducion to the Lake Como area.
Wonderful day at Lake Como.
Richard_D, Mar 2023
This was a great trip. Our guide Simon was knowledgable and friendly and really helped make the trip memorable. Worth every penny as you stopped at multiple locations and enjoyed guided tours by bus, boat and foot as well as free time to explore. I can’t recommend this trip enough and in March the cost of the whole trip was less than the quote for car hire or private transfer and you definitely benefit from the tour guide and local knowledge.

An absolute dream trip!

Wonderful bus ride the boat cruise to Lake Como and the other lakes. Bus to Tirano then got on the red train Bernino for the most amazing, idealic and picturesque ride through the Swiss Alps then bus back to Milan. Totally worth every penny, highly recommended!!
A good way to see Lake Como in one day

Wrong itinerary
Julie_B, Mar 2023
The tour guide was a nice woman, but difficult to hear. Viators itinerary was completely wrong though, it included 2 stops that were completely not included.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Dear Julie, thank you for your notice. We don't know on which date you took part to the tour but probably was one day that was very windy and we ahd to change the program becuase it was not possible to sail in the center of the lake. For the safety of our customers we had to little change the program with the visit to a different village. Sorry about that but it was an unexpected situation. Best regards
Great package

Beautiful tour
jennifersacct, Mar 2023
Beautiful views, relaxing boat tour around the lake. Comfortable bus with sufficient space. Enjoyed walking regions around the lake. Tour would be better if smaller group, not everyone was courteous of others or respectful of the time.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Dear customer, thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear that you were able to enjoy the boat tour as well as being able to joy your free time by walking on your own.
Nice trip
Ming_L, Mar 2023
Enjoyed this wonderful trip. The tour guider was very responsible, for example, he got the meeting point early so we were able to find him easily. He explained everything clearly and told us a lot of stories about the lake Como. The boat we took also very good. The lake is beautiful. Highly recommended.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
We are so glad to read you enjoyed your trip! Doing it with a tour guide is a great plus since you feel taken care of and receving great insights of everything you see. Thank you
Good fun!
Theresa_D, Mar 2023
It was a good tour! Bellagio and the old town of Como is lovely! Our tour guide is very knowledgeable. This tour should be on your list when in Milan specially if it’s your first time to visit the city. It’ a good break from the city tour.
Phoning It In
Wendy_W, Mar 2023
The tour bus was cramped and claustrophobic. The lake was beautiful, but the tour guide was phoning it in. He narrated along the route, but it was hard to follow or relate what we were seeing at the moment to what he was saying.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Dear customer, thank you for your feedback its very helpful for us to reinforce our quality service. Best Regards
A treasure in northern Italy
Lynne_A, Mar 2023
What a beautiful place! We say lovely villas, took a boat trip and saw several gorgeous towns. Our tour guide showed us all the right places and gave us information we never would have received.
Noof_A, Mar 2023
It was a fine trip - not very impressive. We went to see nice places but were mostly left on our own - the bus ride was unorganized and i was separated from my husband on the way back
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Dear customer, thank you for your feedback we will take it in consideration. best regards
It’s Ok
Rajesh_P, Mar 2023
I have full sympathy for the guide in view of her age but really this trip was more about getting on a bus to go to Lake Como, then to Bellagio, then to Varenna and exploring on your own.. the locations are good but I suspect the weather (great sunny day the day I went) had more to do it than the trip planners ..
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Dear customer, thank you for your feedback, it helps us to understand best how we can continue to better our services. Lake como is indeed beautiful on a sunny day. We hope you enjoy the rest of your staying. Best regards, Autostradale viaggi

Was a good experience. Franco was a good host. Was a little confusing having him do the tour in both English and then Spanish.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Dear customer, our tour guide Franco is one of our best ones!! We imagine that you indeed had a lovely time. Thank you.
