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.
This was quite a large group tour. There were 51 people in our group. However, our guide, Anna, was very experienced, and the day was a balanced mix of staying together as a group and free time. It made a relaxing first day in Italy. We saw a lot and all the logistics were arranged for us.
What a perfect day. The actual town of Como is so charming. It was delightful having some time to wander around on our own. I was surprised, happily, that the boat ride on Lake Como was almost two hours. Landing in the village of Bellagio was another happy surprise. I would recommend the omelet at the café that sits under the trees. Never had eggs like that anywhere. Nice shopping in Bellagio too.
Wonderful trip. Beautiful views and a great boat ride. Easy bus ride there and back. Highly recommended, Di and Bev
One of the best day trips I have done while travelling in Italy. the meeting point was easy to find and the bus trip was very quick arriving to our location, the beautiful lake Como. We had an indepth tour of the city centre, going to a mixture of cultural monuments including a church, villa and duomo. Then we had a two hour cruise along the Lake which was the highlight of the day. great way to see the stunning scenery of the lake and see the multiple villages too. the tour guide kept the cruise very entertaining, pointing out places of significance and telling us history and stories of lake Como. People were excited when he showed us George Clooney's house too. We arrived to Bellagio where we had a few hours of free time. Then we boarded our boat and travelled back to the centre. Came back to Milan on the bus and arrived in the city at 7pm. Great day, and would recommend to anyone wanting to go to Lake Como!
Our tour guide (I am sorry, I forgot her name) was amazing. She was very attentive to everyone's needs and from the moment the bus route started, she commented on the special sites along the way, even in Milan. The cruise on the lake is very nice and Bellagio is a little bit of paradise. It is a great excursion and one we wont forget.
I loved it!! I met some great people on and off the tour. The tour guide was excellent. She was very knowledgable and patient. The only thing I wished, was that we had more time in Bellagio. I wanted to visit the gardens (villa di melzi) and I was unable to do so. I would like to go back and all my co-workers are gushing over the pictures that I took from the ferry ride around the lake.
Great : More tan We Thought..
All was excellent . The Guide perfect , and here yes In English an Spanish..
LOVE LAKE COMO and UP TO BELLAGIO!! WE got lost for 5 min. (in Como) to find our tour director, after stopping to have a glass of wine! @ a cafe!! But, all turned out well...great boat ride and return, had some small TAPAS and WINE @ A SMALL CAFE ON THE SIDE OF THE LAKE!! HOW GREAT IS THAT!!??
BEST ADVENTURE YET!! OF OUR TRIP TO MILAN!!
We had a wonderful day with and absolutely delightful guide and great driver. The weather was perfect and the guided information was great. The city of Como was enchanting and the ferry ride to Bellagio was relaxing with the most beautiful views of Villas, water and landscapes. Bellagio, well what can you say about Bellagio, GORGEOUS! Highly recommended if you have the opportunity.
The tour was great! Concise with our guide who was well versed on what we were seeing. Timing was perfect with adequate "free time" to explore the region on our own. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone with limited time to devote to the Como region.
Tour guide very knowledgeable. Trip well organized. Great choice!
I had a fun time on this tour. Morena was terrific, and very personable. She spoke excellent English, and we all wore headphones to hear her on the boat, and on the port of Bellagio where we were on our own for a couple of hours. My new friend and I took in the sight of the lovely gardens on Bellagio, where you pay 6 euros or so. We had great sunshine on the first leg of the trip, but even though it disappeared later we still had good weather. We saw George Clooney's home, and the house where they filmed Attack of the Clones and Casino Royale, so it was worth it for film buffs. Definitely a great time!
Wife and I took this tour on 8/11/14 and Alesandro was our guide. He was full of information traveling to Como and while we toured the town. He kept a good pace and was very friendly. Not many stores were open due to the country holiday week but the town was very pleasant. The real jewel of this tour had to be the lake cruise. The cruise wasnt a 20min ride down the bank, it was possible an hour. We enjoyed this a lot the towns on the side of the lake were just as beautiful as the mountainside. The fog in the air made it seem magical in a way, you can take some pretty good pictures along the way. Find a good seat and take it all in, there was a good breeze in the open roof section and it got cold. The cruise ended in Bellagio, which also was very cute. A lot of stores throughout the town selling mostly silk scarves since that's what the area is known for. The town itself isnt that big and the 1.5hr we had to wander around was enough time to get a good feel of the town. We spent our time shopping and got a slice of pizza and wine at the top of the hill takeout shop. Not much to say about the ride back besides the driver of the bus maneuvering it like a boss though the narrow streets.
This was well and truly worth doing...good value for money, guide very thorough ...plenty of free time to enjoy a lunch and some shopping...would do it again in a heart beat
