What people are saying about Como

The tour was well organised and the guide- Olga was very informative and professional. We were 14 guests in the group, the van was clean and comfortable and the driver Constantine was very good. Despite the cold and foggy conditions I still enjoyed the experience and the scenery. I realise that in the summer everything would have had a different perspective but I still thoroughly enjoyed the commentary and the history of the places we visited.

Our guide Valentino was very insightful and funny. Thoroughly enjoyed this trip! There was sufficient time to walk around Lugano, Bellagio and Como. She even gave us recommendations to dine at!! (The food places she recommended were all really good!!!!) she was very funny and it made this trip really enjoyable. Thumbs up for the driver who drove us around and also our amazing guide.

Lugano was beautiful. Lake como was nice but I wished we had a little more time to explore the place. Logistics was well planned. Guide was extremely knowledgeable. Enjoyed her sharing who owned which villa along the lake!

Lovely day trip. Quite varied and lots of information about the areas visited. Definitely recommended.

This was a wonderful tour. We loved each stop. Do buy some chocolate from Laderach.
