Como was great and lunch in Bellagio (@ La Grotta) was awesome. What disappointed me was that I had been to Varenna before and specifically chose this tour to introduce this sleepy gem to a colleague. At the end of the day we only had 15 minutes to walk from where our boat dropped us off to the coach pick-up and none of the group had a chance to see anything of Varenna town. I can understand why it would have been difficult to organise but it was still a shame.

Pick up from Milan and bus to Como. A guided tour around the towns of Como, Bellagio and Varenna, with a boat trip across the lake from Bellagio to Varenna, where we were picked up again by the bus and returned to Milan. Beautiful scenery, I now understand the hype and the guide was very, very good (Franco)! Perfect English, friendly and very informative with a few jokes as well, I don't normally take guided tours and do things myself but would definitely recommend the tour, it saves a lot of travel hassle and was especially enjoyable with Franco! Thanks again.

We enjoyed our trip to lake Como very much. The trip was well organized and timely. The tour guide was knowledgeable about the history of lake Como and each town. We highly recommend this tour program to those who may be interested.
