We had a wonderful day! Everything was organized and on time. Out tour guide, Martha, was wonderful and very accommodating, also very knowledgeable. I would not change a thing! I would rate this tour 5 stars!
What an excellent tour! I'm so glad I did this.
Our guide was Alessandro. What an awesome guide! He was equal parts funny and informative. I would describe him as extremely knowledgeable with a great sense of humour. He had our whole coach laughing on so many occasions I could not count them if I wanted to! He also showed great patience with his guests, something a good tour guide does without most people realising they're doing it. Opprando (not too sure on the spelling) was our driver and he was a good driver at that!
Now for the tour...
This was my first coach tour. I was a little apprehensive at first but if all coach tours are like this then I'll definitely be doing more of them. It was perfectly organised with plenty of free time.
I really enjoyed my time in Bellagio. Mostly I just wandered the alleys and peeked into the shops. This is a place I could happily spend a few days in.
Como was ok and I think we had enough time there.
The boat cruise on the lake was nice. It takes about two hours from Como to Bellagio on the people ferry. There were many stops along the way. This is a public ferry and you're free to move about as you wish. Our guide, Alessandro, hung out at the top deck as that's where most people hang and he provided a running commentary for a lot of the cruise. This may sound a little OTT to some people but I can assure you that it was the perfect amount of commentary. And if you don't want to listen you can turn your headset off. And yes, you see George's villa!
I thoroughly recommend this tour.
Well organised trip with very good guide - highly recommended.
The perfect tour-gorgeous land, villages, very knowledgeable guide, and loved the boat trip.
An enjoyable excursion with plenty of time to see the sights and shop.
This was a fabulous tour! A full day with just the right amount of time spent at each place. A great combination of touring/relaxing/shopping/eating/etc. Our guide, Elena, was pleasant and knowledgable. She enthusiastically described the history of the area. It may not have been planned, but Elena saw that we were interested in a church while we were on the bus near Como, so she took a few of us into the church and it was lovely. The boat ride was awesome! Very relaxing and gorgeous sites, with some interesting narration provided by Elena. We loved our stop at Bellagio: a town of fairy-tale-like beauty. We highly recommend this tour!
Our tour guide was Morina and she was fabulous. Having the headsets so that we could hear everything she was saying was great. She is very knowledgeable of the area and a pleasure to tour with. We had just enough of "free time" to explore on our own. I would highly recommend the trip to anyone.
The best yours you could be on if you are in Milano, it's an absolute must
The best way to see the lake if you don't have your own transportation! Good tour guides and lots of information.
Wow what an area of Italy.
Bellagio amazing. The lakes area absolutely breathtaking.
Certainly a place for the "bucket list" for a longer stay
A must to see- don't miss a perfect day
What a wonderful tour. The whole day trip was perfectly organized. The bus ride was very nice, comfrotable and clean bus. The boat ride was very enjoyable, the 2 hour free time in Bellagio town was perfect. The tour guide was great. I would highly recommend it to everyone.
It was fabulous! Great tour guide - very knowledgable and took care of us. I especially that we had a lot of time on our own to shop, explore, etc. The only thing I did not like was that when the tour guide was speaking in English to we English speakers, the Spanish speaking tourists on my bus talked constantly and loudly. They were very rude. I think the tour guide should have asked them politely to be quiet for the listeners in English. They also played music in the back of the bus on the way back and that should not have been allowed.
But all in all very nice.
Great day with a great guide. Can choose to go on guided tour in Como or do your own thing. The boat ride was good. Bellagio is a gorgeous little town, so picturesque. Lots of places to eat. We had two hours there but could have stayed so much longer. A lot to see.
