We took the wrong vaporetto and we’re going to miss our tour. I was so surprised the guide called looking for us. We got to reschedule for the next morning. So so kind! Alex, our tour guide, did an outstanding job at making all of his guests feel welcome. He even offered helpful travel suggestions. The tour itself was both informative and easy going. I appreciate there being no pressure to purchase from either of the sites we visited.

we made a mistake and thought this was to meet from Milan, but it turns out is better this way and cheaper as train tickets from Milan to Como are cheap and the walk is not that far. the tour was amazing and love the view. 10/10 recommended.

Inna was an excellent guide for our tour of Lake Como and Bellagio. She was very knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions. The tour was a good mix of guided tour and free time. I would definitely recommend this tour.

The cruise is beautiful. And when you see it with a guide, it explains and situates you, if you don't have an explanation everything is the same, nice but that's it

For cruise portion, have everyone sit below deck if it is windy. It was hard to hear the guide even with earbuds.
