Excellente formule . Notre skipper Alessandro a été aux petits soins pour nous, nous donnant des conseils précieux tant sur les restaurants que sur les visites à faire. Nous avons eu le bateau pour nous seuls , un rêve ! Nous reviendrons car ce fut une journée magique. Sylvie

En fait nous avons opté pour un bateau privé, pensant qu'il nous attendrait sur chaque ile. Mais non, nous devions appeler 10-15 min avant. C'est un peu dommage car ce n'est pas ce à quoi nous nous attendions. A voir si c'était la meilleure option à la vue du prix. il y a peut-être une meilleure solution. Sinon service efficace et accueil agréable à chaque fois

Was een geweldige trip om met een privé pendelboot naar drie eilanden gebracht te worden. Aanvankelijk wel de teleurstelling omdat wij ervan uitgingen dat we voor €200 je de boot ter beschikking zou hebben. Wij hadden liever langs Verbania gegaan en relaxt over het meer gevaren. Privé de boot huren betekent dat je met je gezelschap alleen op de boot heen en weer wordt gevaren naar de drie vooraf bepaalde eilanden en je 15 min voordat je wilt vertrekken de schipper kan bellen zodat hij je weer op zal halen. Is wel luxe, geen lange rijen waar je aan moet sluiten- en wachten tot de juiste pendelboot voorbij komt. Hop On hop OFF kost €60 (in ons geval met 5 personen)
