Tour was as advertised to the letter. It was a good way to get acquainted with the area, and to see Lugano. We liked the guide. This is a basic tour that uses the public ferry. Not skip the line or upgraded.

You don’t want to miss this trip. The guide and the driver are superb. See Lugano Switzerland and walk around Bellagio. The bus is new and very nice. The tour is informative and the views are stunning and almost surreal.

The trip was smooth and memorable. You start off with a 45 minute drive to Switzerland (recommend picking up chocolates from the place on the square!) And then you embark on a small ferry trip to your next destination were you have enough time to see everything. The cruise at the end is amazing!

Great tour, Lugano is another beautiful lake city than Lake Como stopping in Bellagio then the ferry ride was nice. Many stops to pick up passengers but we felt we got to see more of the lake that way. Andres was a very informative and knowledgeable guide. We had a great time.

Our tour guide Andrea was so amazing 🤩. The tour was bilingual and I’m bilingual too. He translated everything perfectly word for word. He was funny and interactive; and made sure every single person on the tour had a good time. I was with my 70 year old mother and he looked out for her during the entire trip. Please request him if you can! The excursion itself was spectacular. The bus ride, the walking tour, the cruise; everything was perfect. I learned so much history while laughing with Andrea and experiencing beautiful scenery I thought I would only see in post cards. It was truly a magnificent experience. I 100% recommend this trip.

Lovely tour of Lugano, Bellagio & Como! Andres was wonderful - very knowledgeable and excellent tour guide esp if this is your first time to Como with kids! Glad he warned us up front that this is a bus tour all the way up to Lugano and down to Bellagio & THEN a boat tour. He did a great job of keeping us all together & showed us many interesting sites/info. Tip: On a hot day, it could be too hot/sunny for kids so try to get shade & cold drinks on the 45 min boat ride back if you can & still hear tour guide. But perfect balance of great information of the area and time to yourself to explore the beautiful towns of Lugano, Switzerland & Bellagio, Italy ❤️

Was very nice

Our guide was very good. The places we visited were beautiful. The only part that disappointed us was the 2 hour cruise to Como at the end of the trip. There were so many people taking the boat and they wouldn’t let the group in separately. Our group ended up scattered on the boat and couldn’t hear what our guide was saying. She tried her best for this part but the person in charge at the Bellagio station was not having it.

Long day, beautiful scenery but more do it yourself than guided.
Maris_O
, May 2022
This is less of a guided tour and more of a “do your own thing everywhere” and the tour company will get you from A to B to C. The main issue was the tour is described as being 6 hours long, we got in the bus to discover we wouldn’t be back in Como until 7.30 pm making the tour 8 and a half hours. This threw our evening plans with friends out and we would never have booked the trip if we knew it has been 8.5 hours. Lake Como and the ferry’s were extremely crowded (obviously not the tour companies fault) but the upshot was on our 2 hour cruise back from Bellagio to Como thegroup was scattered everywhere and the guide was unable to give us information on what we were seeing. We had the little radios but they didn’t really work on the ferry. The guide was nice and charming and did her best but I think something like this could more easily be done yourself.

Dear Maris, in the tour description is clearly written that the duration of the tour is 7 hours and 30 minute (not 6 hours as you reported). The Cruise always ends in Como between 6:30 pm and 6:50 pm, on that date all cruise ships were in late as was crowdy everywhere, so was not our fault if your tour ended at 7:30pm Furtermore this is not a guided tour but there is a tour leader that leads you across land and lake, giving explanations and talking about curiosity more that they should do as they are passionate and professional, even if they are not tour guides. Best Regards

We missed the bus and Lugano!

Due to a late train arrival in Como, we arrived at the departure sight with one minute to spare as we watched our tour bus drive off. However, we were able to flag down a different company's bus who called our company and they sent over Oleh, the man leading a different tour of Lake Como. This did not include Lugano so we missed that. Oleh, however, did a terrific job with our boat ride up the lake to Bellagio and taking care of us. He was very knowledgeable about people who owned homes on the lake, as well as local history. We enjoyed a lovely meal in Bellagio (on your own), and a comfortable coach ride back to Milan with a nice stop at two panoramic view points and the Bellagio bicycle museum and shrine. Oleh, our tour guide saved the day and we were very grateful.

2 great places but far apart
Terri_A
, May 2022
I didn’t realize you’d only get 1 hour in Lugano and 1.25 hour in Bellagio They are far apart and you spend the most time traveling. So we didn’t sit and eat because that would of wasted our hour and we wouldn’t of walked and seen anything. We ate at 6:30 in Como where tour ended. There is no tour of Como. Only talking as you drive out. If on wrong side of bus, you can’t see. Lots of details on the villas on the 2 hour ferry ride from Bellagio to Como. Easy to see them. Guide was very good. Bring your passport. Switzerland is not in the EU.
