This was a fantastic tour. The itinerary was excellent. We saw so much of Lake Como, more than anticipated. The stop in Como was wonderful because despite being fall/winter it was a lively place with lots of open stores. The drive around the lake was fantastic and filled with lots of informative details, including a view of George Clooney's house from the road! The boat ride was also awesome where we saw lots of famous and beautiful villas. Bellagio and Varenna were beautiful and worthy stops despite many stores being closed for the season. Claudia was an excellent tour guide who not only provided seamless sightseeing information for Lake Como in both English and Spanish, but also a lot of great information for Milan. Giorgio was a great driver and ensured we got to/from our destinations safely. This was a highlight of our time in Milan and Europe. Will definitely want to return to Lake Como for a longer trip thanks to this visit. Highly recommend!

The bus was very comfortable, and the drive was beautiful as well. I really liked Franco, our guide. He did a really good job of explaining everything in English and Spanish. Lake Como is a fantastic place, even in the winter(which is when I went), so must be best in the summer. Very picturesque. Food in Bellagio is excellent, albeit slightly expensive compared to what you get in Milan City. The trip was worth it, covering multiple locations.

The bus is comfortable, the guide is good, but maybe the explanation when in the middle of the road is only so-so, it could be better when she explaining about the history in milan city. But the journey to the lake como si so beautiful, the experience to the bellagio with the boat is so comfortable too in this autumn

Worth of Trying! Spectacular places will be seen by bus, by boat and picturesque villages will be explored on foot! A day trip you should book during your stay in Milan.

We had a wonderful time on this tour. The guide was awesome.
