The day was a great day spent around Lake Como. Our guide Franco was cheery and informative. Alex, our bus driver, expertly guided the big bus through small twisty narrow roads on cliffs. The exercusion itself was well timed and we didn't feel gipped anywere. We stopped at Villa Olma to walk the beautuiful gardens and have our first breath taking view of Lake Como. After 30 minutes or so we, made our way into Como (the town) for a little over an hour. We had a brief guided tour before free time. Next we took a panoramic drive around the lake where we met our private boat. We were able to sit outside on the deck and take in the beautiul day. Franco pointed out villas from the water and the history or the owner. Our next stop was Bellagio where we had lunch and free time. Finally we took a public ferry to Varenna for a last quick stop before taking the bus back to Milan. Finally with current times (COVID-19), our guide wore a mask at all times and encouraged social distancing.
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
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!
We travelled from milan city centre to lake como we spent time in lake como then went on a 2 hour boat trip across the lake and a stop in bellagio a beautiful town.
Superb trip. Franco our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. The driver Claudio was excellent too. Well worth the money
