What people are saying about Varenna
What wasn’t great was the confusion around the pick up point. I booked my tour online and what was offered were 2 pick up points, one by the Dio,o, the other at Stazione Centrale. On receiving the Mobile Voucher, the pick up point highligted was the only the one at the Duomo. We took at taxi there at the cost of 11€, and to our surprising the independent tour guide said we would going soon to collect the others from the Stazione Centrale. We were annoyed to say the least, as we were staying within 7mins walk to the station and could have saved both time and money by walking there, which was what we were planning on doing. Please get the mobile voucher updated to show both options to customers to stop this confusion. The tour leader was not interested in mentioning this to his employers.
I loved everything about how this trip was designed. All three places were gorgeous and the different modes of transportation allowed us to see the areas from different angles. One thing that would have been nice was to have a little more time in varenna. We only had about a half hour there which wasn't enough time to see the whole village. Other than that everything was wonderful. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Her English was pretty broken so if you have trouble understanding English through thick accents then it may be a little difficult for you to follow. However, being a tourist and not knowing the native language myself, I am not one to judge and I thought that overall she did a wonderful job!
The Tour was good with a very good guide but Icam always amazed I’d the poor sightseeing visibility from the coach , especially for smaller people , with little keg room and high seat backs you can only see out of the side , the only people who get good vision are the ones up front ! There was no water available on the bus , the air conditioning at the rear was poor And the volume over the speaker was far too loud . On a positive note time in each stop was good and and each spot was clearly explained by our guide . Unfortunately again people on the wrong side of the coach ( left ) alway had poor vision with very limited photo opportunities .
Decided to book this day tour to explore Lake Como and get out of the city of Milan for a day. The instructions provided with ticket were clear and easy to find the pickup location. Didn't know what to expect in terms of tour size, which ended up being about 30+ people. Our guide, Sonia was very nice, knowledgable and answered any questions the group had. Only wish we had more time on the boat ride and saw more of the different villages via boat vs. sitting on the tour bus!
A must.....Tour guide was very good and also on top of his game. During the boat ride we had some turbulent waters that prevented us foreseeing Bellagio and Verrona. HOWEVER, he absolutely turned our trip around by taking us to another amazing little village to tour and have a nice lunch. Very impressed with his ability to have a back up plan to ensure we had a an amazing experience. Well Done, and thank you!!!!!
