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.

Como was great and lunch in Bellagio (@ La Grotta) was awesome. What disappointed me was that I had been to Varenna before and specifically chose this tour to introduce this sleepy gem to a colleague. At the end of the day we only had 15 minutes to walk from where our boat dropped us off to the coach pick-up and none of the group had a chance to see anything of Varenna town. I can understand why it would have been difficult to organise but it was still a shame.

Pick up from Milan and bus to Como. A guided tour around the towns of Como, Bellagio and Varenna, with a boat trip across the lake from Bellagio to Varenna, where we were picked up again by the bus and returned to Milan. Beautiful scenery, I now understand the hype and the guide was very, very good (Franco)! Perfect English, friendly and very informative with a few jokes as well, I don't normally take guided tours and do things myself but would definitely recommend the tour, it saves a lot of travel hassle and was especially enjoyable with Franco! Thanks again.
