Honestly this tour offers so much for this price! You get a walking tour of Como, 2 bus rides (going and coming back on a different route), 2 beautiful boat rides as well and guidance and explanations from the tour guides every step of the way. The guides were friendly and gave good explanations. I recommend this tour!

Great day out and 3 beautiful locations to explore along with the ferry ride. It was nice to have the logistics all worked out for us so we could just relax and enjoy. The tour guides were very friendly.

The guide Angelo (who explained the tour in Spanish) is very helpful and very knowledgeable about the history and trivia regarding the places we visited. I had a wonderful time! A day well spent.
