The bus is very comfortable and there is A.C.. There is a tour in the town of Como which isn't the most exciting but you get enough time to also grab a quick bite and perhaps a coffee after. The ferry ride is of course packed but what else can you expect. The views are still spectacular. Bring swim suit to swim in Bellagio during your time there, there won't be much time for doing anything else though unless you make it a very quick swim. Bellagio is beautiful and so is Varena. There isn't much time to get dinner and I only saw restaurants in Varena, not really any cafe's so if you run and get a seat somewhere and tell them you are in a rush then you can get a quick pizza in. Views are amazing and the bus ride is fairly quick.

Perfect way to spend the summer if you’re a solo traveller. I traveled alone and the tour gave me the chance to meet people whilst taking me to the wonders of Como, Bellagio and Varenna. Plus the tour guide was very engaging and gave me a pleasurable experience. Will definitely recommend!

The excursion is a spectacular experience! The villages and the ferry ride are awesome! A mandatory excursion if you want to enjoy this part of Italy. However, the tour did not have any additional explanations, no interesting data or stories were offered and the "guided" part focused on walking around Como. It is a pity that the guide put so little interest.
