What To Expect
One of the largest bodies of water in Italy, Lake Como's best sights vary with the time of year you visit. On this tour, you’ll travel with a guide to discover the highlights of the area around the lake with an itinerary tailored to the season. Food and drinks are at your own expense throughout the day. Winter Tour: (November to March) Relax on the morning journey from Milan to Lake Como. Hop out to stretch your legs on a tour of Como, the lake’s main town, and learn about its key sights around the historic center. From town, take the gondola to the village of Brunate, a serene spot in the hills above Como. Gaze down at the lake, flanked by the Rhaetian Alps, and then make the most of some free time for lunch. Return to Como by gondola before the highlight of your day: a Lake Como boat tour. The water offers the best vantage point to see the lake and shorelines; keep an eye out for chic villas and luxury hotels as you cruise. Cernobbio’s opulent Villa d'Este hotel is one such sight with its grandiose façade and tropical gardens. After your return to shore, enjoy some free time to see the sights at your own pace, shop or perhaps sip a coffee. Then, finish your time in Como with a visit to the Basilica of Sant’Abbondio, a Romanesque-style 11th-century church, before your return to Milan. Summer Tour: (April to October) After your coach journey from Milan, start your tour of Como with a look inside two of its historical attractions: the Basilica of Sant’Abbondio. Continue into Como’s historic center, and use your free time to get to know the town at your own pace with some sightseeing or shopping for Lake Como keepsakes. Meet back with your guide for a scenic cruise around Lake Como, admiring the hillside villas and hotels, and pose for photos against the backdrop of the alps. Return to dry land in time for your trip to the colorful seaside town of Bellagio, which many pinpoint as a highlight of the lake. Spend some time at your leisure here to explore and perhaps savor lunch. Later, cruise to Cadenabbia, then return to your coach for the journey back to Milan.

This trip was very bad
The microphone was not working cause the English leader wouldn’t move his head a little bit to use his microphone they got delayed 17 minutes waiting for some travelers
I used your company before and everything was great but this time i am really disappointed
Beautiful towns and spectacular views. The lake, the mountains and villages are a must see. The tour guide provides constant commentary and advice on what to see, do and eat in your free time. Amazing!
The trip on lake Como was beautiful. It rained on the bus trip out - which was fine, but our tour guide barely said a word the whole trip. On the boat to Bellagio, I heard other guides expaining history and various sites, but our guide spoke twice? the entire ride. When we were in Como it was still raining in the morning. The headset had a lot of static, but the guide did not move/fix. Overall wonderful day!
I booked this tour due to the relatively high number of positive reviews. While the itinerary was as expected in terms of the places visited, the primary reason for the low rating is because the device that was used to provide the audio for the guided tour did not work through most of the trip. The device worked during the initial testing on the bus but once we got off the bus, they divided us into 2 groups and we were put in the wrong group. Then on the device stopped working once we got on the cruise. I wish I could get a credit or something back since the tour was basically useless without the audio. I could have gone on this trip myself for a lot less money but I wanted to learn something about Lake Como and Bellagio. I can’t even rate the tour guides, Claudia and Daniella because the audio didn’t work. Very disappointing.
