Fantastic experience. Sirmione was beautiful. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. We also took a boat trip round Lake Garda. Thoroughly recommend.

Our trip was fabulous!!! Our boat captain was very entertaining and made the trip so much more enjoyable than I expected. He entertained us until the very minute we got off the boat. The wine tasting was great. We had three generous samples of wine and some light snacks that were more than enough. Stopping to swim was refreshing considering it was quite warm the day we went. When we got on the boat at the beginning of the trip, we were all strangers, but at the end, we parted as friends.
The excursion is 100% recommendable !!! We were pleasantly surprised at how nice the trip was. Time passed very quickly, everything was well organized. Our guide Carlo answered every question, the music was on, the atmosphere was great! The wine tasting and the snacks as you would expect ... the tour was definitely worth the money. Definitely do :-)
Very nice tour. Driver was very friendly and kind. The boat ride was long and fun. The wine tasting was very good too. Tried 3 wines and there were more than enough snacks. If you liked, you could still jump into the lake to swim. Everything was very successful. It is best to wear swimwear under your clothes.
We had a guide by the name of stephano who was just awesome. He showed us corners in addition to those planned very nice and gave us a lot of information on a lot of places. He was the best of all guides, there is nothing more to say. If you want a really good experience, choose it.
It was just beautiful, starting with the captain Carlos who provided us with lots of information and lots of cold water, the wine tasting with plenty of food, jumping off the boat in the middle of the lake to swim. 100% recommendation, great value for money.
