Our day trip/trip tour to Lake Como beautiful, informative and relaxing. Our tour guide was great and the pace was just right! We highly recommend the tour!

I think this was as good as it could probably get for a day trip. I don't think you could get any more into the day, and if you could, it probably wouldn't give you any more value.
We got views and history of Como the lake from several vantage points, and also of Como the city. Views of the city and lake from 500metres above, and way, WAY, into the distance, and also views and local stories from an hour-long ferry ride on the lake itself, with enough time to do a little exploration of our own.
Yes, we saw where George lives, when he's there. No, I didn't get the chance to ask him where the best coffee was served in Como.
However, the coach ride was comfortable, warm and swift enough... I don't know what more you could ask for, really.... ?

I loved this tour! It's great for those who visit Milan for the first time .We were very lucky because it was a sunny day so we could see the lake , the montains and entire landscape that is wonderful. The old part of Como city with hnarrow streets and old buidings is charming.Our guide was very professional and explains us a lot about the places visited and the history of Como.

We are a family of 2 adults and our 11 year old son. We did this tour from Milan on 3rd October 2016. Our driver was Mr Oprando Freddy, our Tour Guide was Nadia and our Tour Company was Zanni Viaggi which is one of the main ones in Milan. We did several tours through this company and all were excellent.
The day was a sunny Autumn day and the skies were so clear, that it made the tour even better, because there were no clouds and the towns along the lake cruise were clearly visible.
We drove to Como and were given time to wander about for approximately 1 hour, after which time we met at Piazza Cavour to join our ship. The cruise went from 11.40am until 1.30pm and the ship was very large, so we sat up on the top deck with amazing views and stunning scenery. I took hundreds of photos, as did our son and my husband took incredible video footage.
At 1.50pm we were dropped at Bellagio for 2 hours to have time at leisure which we loved. We had lunch at the Bar Splendide overlooking Lake Como and then wandered about the cobbled lanes and admired the gorgeous little shops along the way, as well as doing some shopping and taking of more photos. It is truly a picture book town, we definitely will be returning to spend more time here on another visit to Italy.
If you want to have a relaxing day, and soak up some incredible scenery, whilst eating beautiful food and enjoying all the the Italian lakes has to offer, then this tour is definitely one to do. We would do it again in a heartbeat.

Lovely day visiting Lake Como. The highlight was Brunate at the top of the funicular railway. the view and the pictures we got was amazing, lucky it was clear and Sunny. We then had lunch by the lakeside sitting outside in the sunshine and it was the middle of December. Throw in a boat trip on the lake and it was a very enjoyable well organised day trip.

The Papal Audience was wonderful. We were met by the guide at the designated area and he led us to very good seats. He explained the protocol and what to expect before he left us on our own. His information was excellent.
