  • Lake Como Tour: The Story of the Local Rebels

In this frontier land between Italy and Switzerland, the mountains just off the center of Como were excavated to accommodate trenches, fortresses and hiding places. The forests have been inhabited by thousands of soldiers and the trails were crossed from one side of the border to the other by men with allegiances to both countries. Your guide will lead you on a fascinating tour through the Spina Verde park, a still green area of Como, where you can enjoy the natural beauty of the park, beautiful views of the city, the lake and learn very peculiar aspects of the local history.

Absolutely wonderful experience with Guilia, our English guide and our two skippers. They were extremely hospitable and treated us like family! The snacks, fruit and drinks were a great bonus to a beautiful day on the like with some tunes. We‘ll be sure to make this a repeat excursion when in Como! - Sheri, Miguel and the crew

Of all the excursions I have Even been on, this was my best experience. The host was as personal and accommodating as anyone could be. Engaging all passengers and making sure all were comfortable. Many times going the extra mile. I highly recommend this activity. It was by far the best value for my money.

We did this cruise with my boyfriend. We have adored ! The crew were on top, very nice and the aperitif provided on board was a very pleasant moment. We loved the swimming stops in Lake Como. We recommend !

The place and organisation were great! You could see a wonderful panoramic Como view.
