This tour was the highlight of our vacation. We still can’t get over how truly scenic it was. The tour was a perfect blend of bus, boat and free time. Sonia was a wonderful guide, spoke clearly and made sure to point out landmarks at each stop so we could find our way. You must be punctual (there’s a strict schedule) or you will get left behind. Two women at our first stop did not make it back to the bus on time so they had to catch up at the next stop (luckily it was still in the town of Como). The bus driver also did a great job maneuvering the bus on the tight roads with other traffic. So happy to not have to drive in that area. Also note that masks were not needed.

Amazing day out from Milan. If you’re a little fed up of the city, this is the perfect escape for a day. Beautiful mountain scenery and gorgeous Italian villages and towns. Our guide Franco was great, very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. If you’re going in the summer, definitely worth taking a swimsuit for a dip in the Lake.

Tour was very well organized. Our guide Sara was very friendly and knowledgeable with lots of good tips and advice. The main part of the tour started in Varenna and ended in Como which was the reverse of what was advertised but it was perfectly fine. The scenery was beautiful and it was the perfect combination of boat ride and bus ride around the lake. I could have used a bit more time in Varenna and less time in Como. Bellagio was beautiful and having the free time there to explore on our own was nice. Villa Olmo was nice but it wasn’t as beautiful as I had pictured it. May it was just getting too late in the day and too hot.
