Brilliant tour with outstanding scenery. Our guide, Nadia was great and handled all situations with grace and aplomb.
Tour guide loved Lake Como. It was obvious.
How could any place be this beautiful.
Great trip, well organised, amazing views and really good guide. Only thought is water on the coach would be very useful as the weather was very warm.
Excellent in every way! We had time and great recommendations for shopping for silk in Como. The boat trip was fabulous and lunch in Belaggio was delicious plus with a view. Our guide spoke wonderful English and was very knowledgeable. Lovely day.
The tour was very well organized and enabled us to really see and experience the area in a single day. It was very relaxing to view the lake by boat and fun to have the opportunity to spend some time in Bellagio.
WHAT A WONDERFUL TRIP WITH A GREAT GUIDE. SAMANTHA WAS GREAT. THIS GREAT WAY TO SEE A BEAUTIFUL AREA OF ITALY. AND VISIT WONDERFUL VILLAGES.
It was a beautiful ride. We enjoyed it a lot. I have no complaints. Thank you viator!
Great time, knowledgeable guIce and lots of free time. Excellent way to see the area and not be driving.
Took this tour on Saturday 23rd July.. We were greeted at the point of departure by our guide, who checked us on board, and gave us our audio guides.
We travelled out through the suburbs of Milan, and were given lots of information on what appears to be an ongoing transformation of a very busy and vibrant business city. As we approached the town of Como, our guide informed us that a storm was due, that should blow through very quickly. However, this storm lasted all the time that we were in Como, and the rain was relentless. Very sad, as our guide did her very best to stay upbeat, but a lot of the time was spent on the coach, sheltering from the downpour..
However, we boarded the ferry and proceeded up Lake Como, and as we did so, the weather slowly cleared up. By the time we reached the town of Bellagio the sun was shining, and we managed to have a lovely lunch and two hours of lovely weather, before having to take the ferry across the lake to meet up with our coach again, for the return journey to Milan..
On the way back we drove through lots of lovely rural Italian villages, on narrow roads, and the scenery was lovely.
I would recommend this tour!! Its a great day out, and it was just one of those things with the weather. Win some, lose some!!
A very nice trip.
Our tour guide, Simona, very well-organised and professional.
The boat trip around Lake Como was beautiful and Simona told us a lot of stories about the lake and the houses.
The stop in Bellagio could be a bit longer.
I highly recommend this tour.
My wife and I had an incredible trip, it really was the highlight of our holiday
Very nice trip, great guide and better views! Highly recommended
A very enjoyable tour from start to hectic finish with perfect food and weather. The drive to Como was very pleasant. Our tour guides were very well-organised and professional - their English was perfect and they were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Lake Como was beautiful and the two-hour cruise to Bellagio was very pleasant. There was a little restaurant on-board the boat that served lunch, and apart from the million dollar views through the thick, marine glass windows, it offered little ambience, HOWEVER, it served perhaps the best food we ate anywhere in Italy! The gnocchi pomodoro were to die for and the penne pesto were delicious! To top it off, it was as cheap as chips! Please don't waste your precious time at Bellagio eating lunch, when you can enjoy a delicious lunch on-board the boat on which you're confined for two hours anyway. We had a lovely afternoon walking around Bellagio taking in the sites and atmosphere, with my companion taking lots of photographs.
Please note that Viator lists a 9-hour tour starting at 8:30am, but in actual fact, the tour generally ends at 6:30pm, which is of course 10 hours, so plan accordingly. We had a 8:30pm flight to London, and an uncharacteristically late boat to Cadenabbia and a traffic accident causing congestion on the way back to Milan, had us running extremely late. The tour guides were exceptional, calling a travel agent and the airline for us en route back to Milan, trying desperately to ensure we made our flight. They dropped us off within a mad-dash of our hotel to collect our luggage and had arranged for a taxi to be waiting for us to rush us to the airport! We made our flight with just moments to spare!
Our favourite tour of our European trip, with many memorable highlights...for many different reasons. Very highly recommended.
Very nice and informative tour. Ferry ride was quite long but worth with great scenic view of lake Como.
If you're thinking of visiting Lake Como, be sure to check out this tour! The tour guide was knowledgeable and engaging. And the boat trip around Lake Como was beautiful, with the tour guide sharing many interesting stories about the lake and the houses. However, the stopover at Bellagio could be slightly longer. Overall, a great trip!

This was a very nice trip and Alessandro spelling? was an excellent guide. The Lake Como area is beautiful and our guide did a great job of pointing out the sites especially on the boat ride around the lake where he told us interesting stories about the villas and the owners. Our guide did a great job of keeping track of the large group of people that he was responsible for about 50 people. The only thing that would have made this trip better was if it had been offered as a small group tour.
