Our guide was very thorough and helpful. The transit with the bus and the lake cruise were very smooth. I hope we would be able to stay a little more on each place but that would not be possible if you want to see the most. Highly recommended

Great guide, his information was very important specialty while we were riding the train, the guide prepared us on which side of the train the next view is going to be in , so we could watch or take pictures properly.

It was amazing experience!the panoramic view of the lake, mountains and of course the bernina train journey was awesome I love it!

Great trip. Great tour guide. No need to walk around lake Como at end of day when everyone had enough.

Really nice tour. The guide was kind and explain well. I recommend it
