Thoroughly enjoyed it. Stephanie is an amazing guide. Lake Garda is stunning, we were lucky to have such lovely weather. Sirimione is gorgeous old world fabulous. Definitely worth doing this trip.

The tour is worth checking out, if you want a day away from Verona. The guide was informative and intelligent about local history and geography.

Although the bus was 15 minutes late arriving everything else made us forget that. A lovely driver and both guides

We vent to Sirmione from verona. Great your. Beautiful place. Enjoyed the guided boat trip very much.

A wonder little village, very pretty waters. I wish we had more time and stayed longer!
