I received a royal treatment since I was the only person on this tour, the tour guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and answered all my questions. Isola Bella is out of this world, highly recommended!!!

My mother and I got extremely lucky to go on a private tour of Lake Maggiore with Fabio, a great and wonderful guide. There was only another young couple with us, so it was a lot of fun with just the 5 of us! Fabio had great storytelling demeanor and told us a brief history of Milan. We took the train, so that's why we met at the Caldorna train station, where Fabio found us on time. We took very short boat rides to Lake Maggiore and another small island I can't remember the name of at the moment, had time for a delicious lunch and shopping. And sightseeing of course. We met at our designated areas pretty much on time, and had a full fun day with Fabio. Thank you!
Tour started out a little shaky-on the wrong train so we had to retrace steps back to Milan but our guide was very personable and we enjoyed the rest of the trip. Maggiore is beautiful.
The guide was more interested in self promoting. She treated the tour as a day out and a chance to talk about herself and what she had done previously. When we arrived at Isola Bella she pulled a couple of sheets of paper with text downloaded from Wikipedia and read a paragraph to our group then claimed that it was boring so for us to just go and explore. She had with her headsets in order to give commentary however these remained in her bag all day. We did not learn anything at all from this woman which we were very disappointed about. Our opinion of small group tours are that they have poor quality guides and that the bigger groups are better value
