2 or 3-Day Guided Hiking Tour in Tessin Mountains
- Duration: 2 days
Me and my husband didn't like a headphones very much. Also the whole system of it. The guide was always looking her own way and just talking in to the headphones. We didn't feel a connection or a close relationship. The restaurant that was recommended in Bellagio was very expensive and I would say nothing special. We really had a better experiences about the restaurants on another similar trips.
It was a nice day with clear skies to do some hiking. The guide was professional and explained the history of Gandria and the culture in different languages to cater to everyone in the group. Tip: make sure to wear comfortable shoes, and for this time of the year take a light jacket with you. We started at late morning ( 10am) and it was still a little bit chilly.
The trip overall was very enjoyable. The biggest negative was our guide, she struggled with English. She had a lot of interesting information she was sharing but a lot of what she said, we couldn't understand. We give her an A for effort for trying but this company really needs to have guides that speak better English.
We started in the morning with some history from Lugano, courtesy of our guide, then the group walked towards the funicular area, we took the funicular to the top of San Salvatore. Awesome views!!. There is a monastery, now a museum and 2 restaurants where you can have lunch al fresco.
We really enjoyed this trip, it was great to have time by ourselves to explore lugano and bellagio and the tour of lake Como by boat was a real highlight. The guides were great, really helpful and friendly. Its a great experience!
