Beautiful ride on the lake and its islands

In fact we opted for a private boat, thinking that it would be waiting for us on each island. But no, we had to call 10-15 min before. It is a bit of a shame because it is not what we expected. To see if it was the best option in view of the price. there may be a better solution. Otherwise efficient service and pleasant welcome every time

Was a great trip to be taken to three islands in a private shuttle boat. Initially the disappointment because we assumed that we would have the boat available for € 200. We would have preferred to visit Verbania and sail relaxed over the lake. Renting the boat privately means that you and your group are only sailed back and forth on the boat to the three predetermined islands and you can call the skipper 15 minutes before you want to leave so that he will pick you up again. Is luxurious, not long lines that you have to connect to - and wait until the right shuttle boat passes. Hop On hop OFF costs € 60 (in our case with 5 people)

Great to be able to call and be picked up within max 15 minutes (while there are long lines). Worked perfectly.
