This was the highlight of my honeymoon to Italy, and was a 5/5 in terms of pure enjoyment (I'll explain why I gave it a 4 below). Whilst Roma and Milano are beautiful cities for very difference reasons, seeing Lake Como, Lugano and Bellagio were awe-inspiring. The tour guides are fun, informative and give you some freedom at each spot, or the option to tag a long for extra history. These are some of the most beautiful locations on earth, in my opinion. As others have mentioned, you don't have enough time at each spot. We had quite a bit of time in Lugano (1.5-2 hours) but both Como and Bellagio were very rushed, 1 hour was all we really had at either. Como is quite small, but for Bellagio, in particular, this was a shame as its so beautiful and there is a lot you can do. Whetted my appetite to go back again, but there were boats after so I would have preferred to have paid more and had more time at Bellagio. Hope they consider this for future visitors.

Knowledgeable tour guides. Beautiful sightseeing however there was not a lot of time available to stroll around Como before the trip to Lugano. The weather was quite hot and the air conditioning in the van was not functioning well. This could be considered a minor inconvenience but made the trip uncomfortable.

It was really worth leaving Milan and doing this tour. Beautiful landscapes. Our guide Stefano was very friendly and attentive. The only bad part was arriving in Bellagio and spending almost an hour looking for a restaurant because most of them had closed for the time. It's good to pay attention to that. My family and I love the places we visit.
