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.
One of the best experiences I’ve had, the tour guide was so friendly, knowledgable and was so caring, going the extra mile to give us her undivided attention to make us feel it was a private tour. Lake Como.....breath taking is an expression that doesn’t do it justice! I found it more mesmerising than Almafi
We had a great Tourguide, who told us a lot of stories in between. She was passionate about the things we visited and knew a lot of history. The tour was very well structured and the 3 hour walk sounds more than in reality. Worth the booking.
Very nice guide, really instructive. To see the Cene, just a dream! However, we should have visited the cathedral and the basement, so the tour was only 2 hours instead of 3. This is te reason of my rate...
