Baraba was an excellent guide. The tour description was not very accurate. It stated we were on a boat ride or Como but failed to say it was a water taxi which is very different than a dedicated tour boat. There was not ample seating for all guests boarding continually at stops and 2 hours is a long time to stand outside with no seating in or outside. The amount of time in Lugano was only 45 minutes after our ferry boat arrived almost an hour late , leaving us standing and waiting for an hour. We had 6-7 hours of idle time waiting or on transport out of an 10.5 hour day. We would not recommend or book again. Better to do 2 towns with more time than all the transport time with not enough time to stroll or dine after all the other tourists were dumped off at the same times.

What to expect from the Lake Como tour

Meet your guide in the morning and hop aboard the A/C private coach for an experience unlike any other! Cruise past the street lights of Milan into the picturesque countryside of Italy and make your way to Como. Learn about the history of the land, see the former villa of Hollywood legend George Clooney and enjoy a snack aboard the restaurant on the boat; before we make it to the next stop, Bellagio.

Known as ‘The Pearl of Lake Como’, Bellagio is a town famous for its resorts. Explore the city, sample the local food, shop or just stroll through the boulevards, you’re free to have your own adventure in the charming atmosphere. Once you’re done, it’s time to board the coach and head to the border.

An hour away from Bellagio, the cross-country journey to the foothills of the snowy Alps is as scenic as it sounds. Called ‘The Monte Carlo of Switzerland’, Lugano is located on a beautiful lake of the same name. Known for its artistic culture thanks to ‘Passion and Crucifixion’, a painting by Bernardino Luini, housed in the Santa Maria degli Angioli Church, a quick walk away. The painting is of such artistic caliber, it is often compared to Leonardo Da Vinci! But on Sundays, the trip takes you to Varenna instead as Lugano's shops and restaurants are typically closed on Sundays.

What to bring

  • All customers are required to carry their original passport/travel document with them to enter Switzerland.
