It was a really good snapshot of Lake Como and Bellagio. Our bus was parked near other buses, so be sure to ask the drivers which company they are. It’s may not be obvious by looking at the bus. The get directions on the app is a little bit off, but once we saw the buses it made sense. I would highly recommend this tour. It was great not having to drive or think about parking. Both Como and Bellagio are worth the trip - though it’s short. Would loved to have stayed a day. Only one place on Bellagio asked if we would use cash instead of credit. I would definitely book the same or similar again.

Amazing trip, Paula (guide) did a fantastic job. Just under 2 hour bus journey up to Como which had some scenic views on route. Once at como you had an hour to walk around the town and grab a coffee then onto a 2 hour boat trip all the way up to ballagio which was amazing. Once at ballagio we had around 2 hour to explore and find food which was just enough time to really take it all in. Then from here, the bus took us to the cycle church at one of the highest points in como. Will deffo be booking this again

It was a beautiful experience. Our guide, Sabrina, was so knowledgeable and informative to both Italian and English speaking members of the tour. It was a pleasure to be in her group. She made sure we had time to enjoy both Como and Bellagio, pointing out the palaces and places of interest on the ferry as we journeyed on the water. When there were seats available on the top deck, she told us all so we could get a better view. Thank you Sabrina and Antonio for a safe and memorable day.
