Good option for the service which takes care of all of the logistics for you. I went on a Monday and there were three bus loads of about 50 people each with each our own tour guide. The guide you get has a big impact on enjoying the journey. Mine was so-so, but I switched the channel on my radio while on the boat trip to the another guide and liked her style and information better. There is about 2 hours in each city on your own, but I would have like a little more information on what to do while there. Not much time to do a lot if your using up time to figure out where to go or get stuck taking a wrong turn. You could opt into a preplanned lunch on the boat for 19 euro (cash only) but I did not and I felt I would have missed many of the sights since restaurant is on lowest level. Better to grab food in the towns or bring your own snacks for the trip.
Overall this was a great trip. As a solo female traveller this was a really good option. Really well organized, transportation was very comfortable, and we were given some free time in Como to walk around. The boat ride was more like a round trip ferry ride, but beautiful nonetheless. It would be nice to go back in the summer for the longer boat ride, but the plus side of the winter tour is that Como was not as busy.
One of the best experiences I’ve had, the tour guide was so friendly, knowledgable and was so caring, going the extra mile to give us her undivided attention to make us feel it was a private tour. Lake Como.....breath taking is an expression that doesn’t do it justice! I found it more mesmerising than Almafi
Fantastic trip in a wonderful place! Como is just a gorgeous place. The only downfall is that the trip doesn't last long enough. We had beautiful weather so we wanted to stay as long as possible and walk round como to see as much as we could. Would recommend this 100%
The boat ride to Bellagio was very beautiful. Once in bellagio we ate at a nice restaurant called Art in Flowers at the top of the hill. Highly recommend it!! Overall the tour was worth it!
