What people are saying about Lake Garda

My friend and I had a fabulous day out (12-4pm) on this trip. The compare asked us what languages we spoke and then he gave a running commentary in every language fluently! We had lunch , which was a bowl of pasta in tomato sauce, which was fine and we could choose a drink from the bar. We went along the lake Garda and then stopped at an appropriate spot for us to get off the boat and swim . The weather was hot and this was really most welcome. There was a short platform for people to jump or dive into the water or if you were oldies like us (in our 70’s) there were steps you could go down. We all laughed and played in the water with the boats floats, great fun . It was a brilliant end to a few days in Verona, we had been to see the opera on Sunday and finished our holiday with this trip. Really lovely thanks .

The tour guide was very nice, helpful and took us through the beautiful nature of Lake Garda. All in all, an adventurous, almost three-hour ebike tour followed by wine and food tasting. We ourselves did the tour with street clothes. But I would recommend everyone to wear sportswear, because you get sweaty despite the ebike. Michael even gave us a restaurant recommendation in Verona and reserved a table for us there. A really great recommendation!

Excellent tour! We had a great captain. Purchased extra bottle of wine at the wine tasting, 8.50 Euro. Trip was as advertised. Definitely rate as a Recommend.

A beautiful boat and the crew were very helpful. I very much enjoyed our trip around the lake. A perfect afternoon

The experience was very nice, despite the weather. Our captain made our journey unforgettable.
