Our tour guide Mara is amazing, she’s very passionate and knowledgeable and she showed us all the must see spots and the history behind it. Lugano is amazing place, we got there in the morning, took beautiful pictures, went around the area. Then moved to Bellagio by ferry for lunch and by fast ferry to Como. It’s a great experience! We enjoyed it so much.

I can't recommend this tour and Alicia, our tour guide, enough. I had a brilliant day and the tour felt very bespoke and professional. Such good value for money considering all the places we went to, including our boat cruise.

Superbe expérience avec une prise en charge irréprochable. Paysages incroyables et la visite en bateau est très complète. Merci pour tout !

Unbeatable experience, Franco our very attentive guide, explained everything very well. The setting, incomparable
