Exactly what we expected. we were able to purchase designer pockets books for about half the price of the shops in Milan and we were able to sit down to an authentic swiss fondue lunch! Everyone was pleased. My only complaint is that the time left at the outlets could have been shortened by and hour or two
Hussle free shopping experience. Just step on the bus to bring you to the shopping outlet. The tour gave sufficient time for shopping.
Very well organised tour. The outlet itself was great and I thought was really good value. Lots of variety and good prices (much cheaper than I could get at home!)
Amazing experiance! Lovely views of lake como on the way, so have your camera ready :)
Tour office is nearby a metro station. The coach bus is comfortable and on time. Shopping experience was good. Definitely a hassle free way to visit Foxtown. Would definitely recommend this tour. Good job.
It takes 1 hr 15 min to get there. Not very big outlet mall but there are quite a few high end branded stores there. Not many choices in term of dining. I don't mind to take this tour again in the future. I did not regret i took this tour.
This is a fun short and awesome way to go from Italy over to Switzerland to get bargains on high end fashion for your souveniers. We were able to afford a Prata purse for all three of us for the normal price of one and I also got a pair of Dolce and Cabanna shoes. I rate this excellent! 8/18/13
My wife and I had a wonderful shopping experience there. We'll highly recommend it to serious shoppers!
Very enjoyable and worthwhile at a reasonable price. The bus was clean and comfortable.
Tour bus departs on time. Great time shopping at Foxtown. Save $ at stores: Gucci, Prada, Cavali. Cannot find good deal at Burberry.

We just need to sit in the coach and the driver drive us to the shopping outlet, when we reach the border, we so lucky that no need to check passport and get down the bus. so the whole journey only take less than a hour.We enjoy the shopping and the return bus wait for us just outside the entrance of the shopping mall.
Absolutely fabulous highly recommend. Go early so you can stay longer. Needed more time!
Foxtown Outlet shopping Tour , was very exciting , and for sure very costing , you cannot stop yourself from buying , prices are awesome , almost all International Brands are there , you need more than four hours to see the whole mall.
Self-explanatory - it's simply a shuttle bus trip to the outlet. Best deals were at Gucci and Lacoste. We walked away with several bags from Fendi, Gucci, and Lacoste. Dior prices weren't that discounted and matched the same rates offered at the Dior outlet located in Southern CA. You must spend a minimum of 300 CHF at one store if you plan to claim a VAT Refund. This wasn't too hard with the goodies we bought at Fendi and Gucci. However, our total at Lacoste was only around 230 CHF. The minimum is quite high compared to other regions. In Italy, the minimum is only 154.94 EUR and in France it is 175.01 EUR to qualify for a VAT Refund.
TIP: Be sure to get your refunds stamped at the border on the way out. The shuttle bus will stop and allow time to get this done. Once this is completed, you can obtain your refund once you're back in Milan (or any other city) at any of the refund locations. Just make sure they accept Switzerland vouchers. Some refund offices will only accept the local vouchers. They really try to make it difficult for you to get your money back! You will NOT need to show these items once leaving EU. The only items you need to show at the airport are the ones that still require a stamp from customs.
Lovely bus trip to Lugarno, amazing viewing of passing countryside and Lake . Shopping outlet huge and well planned with guidemaps and range of price points. Great decor in atrium.

On time and pleasant trip! Plenty of time to shop around the mall. Will be back!
The bus left on time for foxtown and the driver is very polite. No eating and drinking on the bus. We had a round 3 -4 hours to spend in the outlet. After we were picked up, we had to go down in the swiss border to have a our custom stamps. Its a great way to spend the afternoon in the outlet rather going there on you own which will come out more expensive.
It was great trip, good shopping center , you will find most of the brands. Enjoy it.
Excellent trip. You will get great deals, even better than those in Milan. I would highly recommend anyone going. Got some great buys. I plan to go again.
It is a very simple process of booking online, validating the ticket with the coach operator and boarding the bus just several metres away. The bus departed and arrived Milan as per schedule.
It was only a bus ride to Foxtown, but everything from my online booking to the ticket agent and the ride was done very professionally. Certainly to be recommended.
