Absolutely Beautiful...Great Tour and Great Guide!!!! The only thing that I would offer the Guide is that not all Americans are not George Clooney groupies...kinda weird.
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.
An enjoyable day tour with an excellent tourist guide( Margerita) who went into details with a continued commentary all day long..
The boat trip to Bellagio was superb!
the day was fantastic, guide was very informative, was a great experience
Excellent tour - the guide, Mirko, was very knowledgeable and provided interesting historical information of the area. There was plenty of free time to explore Bellagio. A relaxing and enjoyable day.

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.
Our guide was entertaining and very informative. My only criticism was the slow boat between Como and Bellagio gave us little time in the latter to both take a good look round this pretty little town and have lunch. Overall a very good tour though and a great day out!
Everything about this tour was great.The weather was perfect, and just gave a wonderful overview of the whole area. Highly reccommend.
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.
Love the tour and the boat ride. At the end of the day we stopped at a dirty service area.
Simply beautiful!! You can't come to Milan and not visit Lake Como. The trip also includes a breathtaking boat ride through Lake Como to the town of Bellagio! It was the best day trip ever!
So beautiful and relaxing! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave lots of info in both English and Portuguese. Not mentioned in the tour description is the lunch offered onboard the tour boat. Two courses plus dessert and a drink for €14.50 was a great deal, and the view from the dining table was just fine. Once in Bellagio, if you've already seen too many churches and narrow streets, you can go swimming! Be sure to bring sandals or water shoes because the beaches are pebbly and hard on the feet, but the water is fine in the summer! Walk south down the shore 5 minutes to the Lido Cafe. They charge for beach access (€?) but they give you a locker. Or continue walking through the public gardens. Admission is €6 per person, but it's beautiful and shady and much better than walking on the street. After the gardens continue walking south a few minutes along the road and you will come to a free beach. The little restaurant will give you a key to the bathroom/changing room. Overall 2 hours free time and 1/2 hour walking gives you 1.5 hours on the beach.
This was a great day trip and very well planned. We visited the town of Como and after a tour we had plenty of time for shopping. We then had a lovely cruise on the lake and purchased a great sit down lunch on the boat with wine. We arrived at Bellagio and had plenty of free time to explore this beautiful place before boarding the coach back to Milan. The headsets were great as the guide kept us informed of all the sights even on the boat when we were seated in different areas. Well worth the money.
