Great way to see a lot in just one day. Good variety of transportation modes and you weren't stuck sitting all day. It was about an hour bus ride to a point where we could use bathrooms and see the outside of a beautiful house and go inside a church. Then we took the bus to Como where we had very little time- just enough to get a bite to eat or use the ATM to get cash (which is behind the duomo in case you need it). I think if the group had been smaller, we would have had more time, but it is what it is. The 2 hour boat ride was excellent with views of the towns along the lake. It's actually a public ferry that makes stops at these towns. For about 15 Euro, you could eat onboard, and that allows more time for sightseeing at Belaggio. I was glad we did that. Food was good. We still had time to go on the upper deck for coffee afterwards, and could take plenty of photos. We enjoyed the tour guide as we ate. He still talked about what we were seeing using a box with an earpiece you can use when you like. We still had enough time to browse Belaggio. You should have euros as many places don't take credit cards. From Belaggio we took a taxiboat to a dock very nearby, where our bus met us and the ride was about 2 hours back to Milan. You will see George Clooney's house from the water and the street view. The weather wasn't incredibly clear the day we went, but if you're lucky with the weather, you can see snowcapped mountain peaks.
It was a beautiful tour. The only thing we would of spent a little more time in Como city (45min). The 2 hour boat ride to Belagio was breathtaking, my wife found it a litle long because it stopped in a few places to pick up more passenger (like a shuttle bus), but she to enjoyed the unforgettable views... Are guide was excellent as well.
A fantastic trip. The English speaking guide was great all day, giving us some great facts. Lake Como was amazing, definitely worth it!
My husband and myself spent the last day of a 5 week holiday on the Lake Como Day Trip. We had a fantastic day cruising around the Lake and shopping in Bellagio. This day trip is well worth the time and money spent. Will definitely live upto all expectations.
A most enjoyable day! Zani Viaggi, the tour operator, are a quality outfit - the tour guide was excellent; friendly, informative and easy to understand. The bus driver was also very good.
the day was fantastic, guide was very informative, was a great experience
What can I say about Lake Como? Just WOW!!!!!!!!!!! The most beautiful place I've ever seen. Take this tour and you will not be disappointed.
The guide was good. He spoke 2 languages - english and spanish. English was not that great but still was good enough. What I don't understand is why we had to listen to the spanish. Get 2 guides for these trips, Zani Viaggi. The multiple languages being spoken did spoil the experience a little bit. After some time, we were not able to keep up with the constant switching of the language and we started feeling pity for the guide as no one was actually listening.
this tour is a great day out it's an early start but well worth the effort. The boat ride is time to relax and take in the scenery although keep in mind your camera will be working overtime. Lake Como is stunning and plenty of opportunities to take photos worthy of a place on your wall at home. Bellagio was just beautiful and will hold a place in my heart. There are plenty of places to have lunch along the promenade which have great views of the lake and aren't expensive. Shopping abounds and gelato is a must. There are a lot of stairs to traverse to get to the main road, which by the way is very narrow however if you take your time you should be ok and there are plenty of shops to explore on the way up.....enjoy this wonderful town there is much to explore. How much you enjoy your time here is up to you....for me..I loved it and i'll be back one day for more.... Great Tour and I highly recommend it...
The tour was excellent and our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable. Highly recommend it and Bellagio was a gem!
