What people are saying about Milan

Michaela our guide managed to fit in quite a few breaks (for breakfast, lunch or to the bathroom, even if it wasn’t on the schedule), despite a very full day of travelling, this was greatly appreciated. The driver Davide was also great at getting everyone from one place to another, safely and quickly despite the small and windy roads around Como, Italy. This is a great tour for everyone who doesn’t have a lot of time but want to see as much as possible. In addition, it was great to go to Lake Como early in the morning when it wasn’t too hot and overcrowded.

Very well organized, we were a group of 4 friends and the guide Anna who spoke Spanish was a charm with all of us. He was in charge of explaining all the details to us throughout the excursion, which for the price it has, the number of hours you spend sightseeing is crazy. Our best wishes to Anna and her companions! From Pamplona we hope you have a good time in Andalucia!!!!

Excellent Guide Sara and amazing driver santo made this excursion enjoyable, the stops and timings are well thought of to truly enjoy lake Como and Bernini Express.

A very pleasant walk, the guide was very nice at all times, I would recommend them without a doubt
