Our tour guide, Alessandro, demonstrated exceptional flexibility and competence, ensuring a highly memorable excursion to Lake Como. The intimate group size facilitated meaningful connections among the participants, fostering a positive and engaging atmosphere. I wholeheartedly endorse this experience.

Rejuvenating and even therapeutic. Antonella is such a charm and so passionate and great at guiding!!Also had a great time with the group of others which also paid for this same tour and have now left with having made new friends. So memorable

The gardens are stunning, with the azaleas in bloom when we visited in mid-April.

I think the cost can be reduced but it was a great experience overall.

The garden is magnificent, it is worth the detour.
