What people are saying about Lecco

Non voglio commettere un errore nel mio italiano, quindi scriverò inglese AMAZING!!! We love the whole crew! They are a bunch of friends who have all known each other they’re entire lives. The boat was beautiful, you’re able to sit at the very front and take pictures of you & your friends if you want, they provided multiple bottles of prosecco and delicious cheese, crackers & meat. Mauro, Maurizio & Luca have my heart - they are so kind, funny, gentlemen. They all have interesting stories and hobbies - ask Luca about his Harley’s Speak italian to them, try your hardest! Embrace them.

Absolutely wonderful experience with Guilia, our English guide and our two skippers. They were extremely hospitable and treated us like family! The snacks, fruit and drinks were a great bonus to a beautiful day on the like with some tunes. We‘ll be sure to make this a repeat excursion when in Como! - Sheri, Miguel and the crew

Of all the excursions I have Even been on, this was my best experience. The host was as personal and accommodating as anyone could be. Engaging all passengers and making sure all were comfortable. Many times going the extra mile. I highly recommend this activity. It was by far the best value for my money.

We did this cruise with my boyfriend. We have adored ! The crew were on top, very nice and the aperitif provided on board was a very pleasant moment. We loved the swimming stops in Lake Como. We recommend !
