It is one of the most beautiful places I have visited

At the beginning I was a little scared because it had cost me quite a lot of the excursion and I thought it was not going to be so much. While in Milan I realized that trains were leaving as much cheaper than I had paid ... But the truth was worth it. The guide was super friendly and kind, spoke perfectly Spanish and made the visit very enjoyable. As it is incredible and its lake is another world, its prices are somewhat expensive but it is a place worth visiting with a lot of history behind. Bellagio is one of the most beautiful villas I have ever seen, it is very crowded by tourism but if you visit As you can not miss it, surprisingly its prices are not too high.

Excellent guide and experience! Told us a lot of interesting historical information as well as showed us good shops and restaurants in Como. Gave us Information about other things we could do for our afternoon if we wished and our guide was fantastic to talk to!

Well planned trip. Lot of free time for exploring the places on your own. Small group and a friendly guide.
