our day was perfect! Clear cool day..How much more do you want do in life? Slow cruise, sightseeing big fablous homes, sipping wine and expresso. Great day.
Wonderfully well organized with a wonderful/fun English speaking local guide:)! Documents in hand we easily found the meeting place and joined a ( full/immaculate) motor coach for the first part of the day. ....the drive was pretty and sights were pointed out along the way. Luckily the weather cooperated and although the end of October we were able to do the full boat ride around mnuch of the lake after some free time to explore Como (with several free hours in Bellagio midway which was a highlight for us! We did a long walk and a wonderful/leisurely lunch at a gorgeous hotel on the water-out on a sunny patio overlooking their sparkling pool and the sea-aaahhhh!). All directions/connections were clear and the views and experience much more than anticipated! The drive back ( via different route/fabulous new views)along the shore at the end of the day brought us back in time for us to take a long/sunset walk back to our centrally located hotel-stopping for yet another wonderful meal in Milan before happily retiring for the night. A VERY good value!!! Highly recommend! We will return to explore the Lake Como area in more depth next rip for sure:)! Thanks, viator!
The tour was wonderful...Sara did an exceptional job...her English was superb. We really appreciated the stop in Como and especially our free time in Bellagio. A great day at a great value.
A truly lovely day...there was nothing which did not meet our expectations
This was the highlight of our Milan trip. Every couple young and old should go and experience this. The day of the tour it was raining but we still enjoyed it, will definitely do it again! Only next time it will be during spring as we heard the view is even more scenic!!!
Would like to have had an extra 1/2 hour in Como, because we felt rushed only in this city, but the guide, the itinerary, and the full day was very relaxing. Not having to worry about cobbling together busses, and water ferry timetables from Milan and around the lake are, because this tour took care of all that, was a blessing.
Lake como is just magical . And it doesn't last long . It worth seeing it.
The tour was really good, the guide Marco was very good and professional
We enjoyed the trip very much. The cruise on Lake Como was the highlight and both Como and Bellagio are delightful towns steeped in history. Breathtaking scenery! Very informative guide as well.
Excellent Tour! Great destination. A most do when visiting Milan.
Very happy with everything about this day tour. The guide gave us
interesting information and just enough time in the town to do a
bit of exploring on our own. the programme ran to time and everybody
seemed very happy with the tour plus the guide.
This trip was wonderful. If the wind is blowing you around on the ferry, you can go downstairs and still get a full plate glass view of the magnificent houses lining the lake. Our tour guide was perfect- having free time in Como and also Bellugia added to the experience. Lots of texture to this day trip- I would highly recommend it.
Beautiful day on Lake Como and wonderful visit to Bellagio. Exciting scenery all day. Highly recommend on a sunny day.
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
