During the summer, take a boat cruise to Bellagio Island to take in the views of the Mediterranean and the Alps. In the winter, take a ride up the steep cogwheel line to the mountain town of Brunate.

From Cernobbio to Gravedona and Bellagio, along the shore, you'll find stunning villas and gardens filled with exotic and rare plants. With your guide, go to Como's center to see the city's beautiful architecture, picturesque streets, and breathtaking views.

In the winter, take a funicular ride to Brunate Village, and in the summer, take a two-hour panoramic boat cruise to Bellagio Island, the lake's most well-known resort.

One of the best experiences I’ve had, the tour guide was so friendly, knowledgable and was so caring, going the extra mile to give us her undivided attention to make us feel it was a private tour. Lake Como.....breath taking is an expression that doesn’t do it justice! I found it more mesmerising than Almafi

Fantastic experience! We met 2 girls whilst out and about and they informed us the train from Milano centrale station and the train up to the mountain was only €5 but the bus journey, boat trip and audio tour was definitely worth it. Very knowledgable guide and really great experience. Would 100% recommend to anyone wanting a nice day trip especially as Milan city can be toured in just over a day.

Make sure to ask the pick up time and location. Because they called me one day before and told me the location and time. We went there on time and found out they told us the wrong time so waited another 30 more mins :( other than that, this trip is good. Our tour guide is excellent!

We started from the center of Milano. The trip was amazing. You might change the boat trip with a private one , as you are stopping every 5-10 minutes during the 2 hour trip , for different stops for everyone to get on and off. Overall Anna and the driver where amazing and I loved this trip!!! I recommend 100%.

We took the wrong vaporetto and we’re going to miss our tour. I was so surprised the guide called looking for us. We got to reschedule for the next morning. So so kind! Alex, our tour guide, did an outstanding job at making all of his guests feel welcome. He even offered helpful travel suggestions. The tour itself was both informative and easy going. I appreciate there being no pressure to purchase from either of the sites we visited.

I have done this same excursion in less than a year, twice, both times. It is a beautiful excursion and highly recommended but this second time I think that the agency has not done it correctly in my opinion. The boat that was taking us to Bellagio broke down, more than 2 hours late…..they made us get off the ferry and wait another 40 meters later. But it was explained to us by the guide that since we would arrive in Bellagio more than 2 and a half hours late and since there are several return ferry services, that we would take a later ferry in order to take advantage of Bellagio. But it was not like that: in October 2021 there was no problem with transfers, the return ferry picked us up in Bellagio at 4:30 p.m.; On 6/29/22 we arrived in Bellagio at 3:30 p.m. and the guide Alessio informed us that the ferry would finally pick us up at 4:40 p.m., that is, only 10 minutes after the usual time for that excursion and only with one hour and 10 minutes to eat and see Bel

Excellent choice for a family! We started at 08:30 nearby metro station and about 1 hour later we arrived at Como. The bus was really clean and new. We were free till 12:00 and walking in the old city of Como was really wonderful. We arrived at Bellagio about 13:45 and had plenty of time to walk around the village. Very beautiful place, plenty of choices for launch and ice cream! About 16:50 we took the boat to Menagio were the bus was waiting for us to go back to Milan. The route was excellent, the weather was very calm and we arrived at Milan about 19:00. During the day we had earphones listening the tour guy telling us stories about Milano, Como, the lake, about Lombardia etc. It was nice but the sound was bad and sometimes we couldn't listen at all! Anyway the trip was really worth it and we suggest it, especially if there is a good weather.

"Fantastic tour of some amazing locations. I just want to warn other people who get nauseous on the road: there's a long descent from the Milan freeway to Como with a ton of turns, which will very likely make you feel a bit sick. I didn't throw up, but I came pretty darn close to it. "

Well worth the trip, Como and Bellagio are beautiful and the coach transfer was first class. However, was surprised at how packed the public slow boat (described as a “river cruise”) was, which meant we were stood up for two hours on the boat in crammed conditions. Not ideal if you are elderly, disabled or claustrophobic and it was very tiring especially in the midday heat!

The tour of Lake Como and Bellagio was very good. Unfortunately there was a problem with the personal radios and earphones supplied to everyone, which meant a lot of the commentary and information about the places visited were missed. However, the tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable which helped to make the trip unforgettable.
