Andrea was a friendly, knowledgeable tour guide who offered us commentary, but tailored it to our questions. We had great flexibility for exploring on our own and he helped us as needed in finding places to eat. The timing was sufficient between and at destinations. A perfect day at Lago di Como! Thank you.

Thank you very much for your feedback, you have definitely got the essence of our tour. Small group allow you to have a personal relationship with the guide, being able to customize the itinerary, answering questions, helping with curiosities, shopping, food and enjoying the most you can have on a quiet day on the lake without hordes of tourists who have to crack the second to reach the meeting point. Happy travels thank you !

Nice but pricey
Patty_B
, Jul 2022
Our guide Pietro was great. However the tour is overprice as you have to travel to/from Lake Como via train on standard cabin (cost per person is $26 euros) then the ferry to go from place to place is around $24 per person) so basically you are paying extra $160 to have a tour guide for the day.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
We are really sorry to receive feedback like this. In my opinion completely valueless, it does not help anyone nor us as a tour operator to grow nor the travelers who will be interested in this tour. By joining a guided tour you know that there are not only out-of-pocket costs that you found on the internet, otherwise why taking part of a guided tour, managed and well organized directly for you, ready to be tasted! The price is high, yes of course, because it is a quality tour. An expert local guide stays with a very small group all day on a well-organized tour where you don't waste a minute of your day, taking you to places you wouldn't even be able to discover on your own ..and sorry did you also forget to include some other costs or did you not find the cost on internet?

So Much to Do with Great Expert Help

Renzo was a great guide! Three destinations on Como in a day is a lot to manage, but he did a great job balancing providing useful and engaging pointers and information while still allowing guests to personalize their experiences within the time frame of each stop.

Pietro was an excellent tour guide. So knowledgeable and we laughed and learned all day. I’m sure we would have missed the best places to go without his experience of growing up there. It was our last day of a whirlwind trip. We can’t wait to return. Thank you so much my friend. Mateo, Jovanna, Tomaste, and Todd (the guy with no Italian first name). Be Courtly.

We had a wonderful guided trip to Lake Como. Our guide Renzo was knowledgeable, personable and considerate. We learned so much and thoroughly enjoyed a great day in this beautiful area.

Highlight of Extensive Italian Tour
J3GP
, Jun 2019
We traveled for 3 weeks in Italy, from Amalfi to Milan. It was memorable in so many different ways. Lake Como...We anticipated a special treat but never did we expect such an area of overwhelming Beauty! From the Lake itself, to the Mansions and small villages that dot the coastline with their local artists and quaint, manicured streets adorned with flowers and then to its restaurants with regional cuisine we were left in awe. Truly a marvel. If the Beauty isn't enough to satisfy then add a well educated tour guide, Renzo, who is local to the area with an extensive knowledge and appreciation of all that the Lake has to offer. We enjoyed The Villa Carlotta and its history, Bellagio and Varenna as well as boating across this unique lake with its special micro-climate. We also enjoyed shopping for silk, as Lake Como is world renowned for silk production! Highly Recommend!!!

It was a really (and great) full day trip as it mention. We met Renzo at 08:00 a.m. at Milan central train station and took the train to Varenna (a great way to get know to the public transportation in Italy). At Varenna we had a break for coffee and travel a little in her main street. Than, we took the ferry to Vila Carlotta in Tremezzo and walked in and around her beautiful gardens. The third stop was in Bellagio of course where we had some time for shopping and a good lunch with the best tiramisu we ever ate!!! Must mention the beautiful view we had while eating at this restaurant. In addition to all of those places, colors and view, there was RENZO of course. polite, kind, smart and a pleasant person to talk to. Now, when we are at home, I can say that it was our best day in north Italy and it is all because of HIM!!!

In varenna we had a break for coffee and a little walk at the main street.Then took the ferry to Tremezzo and visit Vila Carlotta and the beautiful gardens. The third stop was at Bellagio of course where we had some time for shopping and enjoy an excellent restaurant with the best Tiramisu we ever ate and a view that we can only imagine! Actually,I must say that the day was in accordance with the description in Viator but it was so successful because of Renzo itself who lead the tour (our tour guide). Besides the beautiful views, colors and places we have been, he was patient and attentive to all our wishes. A pleasant person that it was no matter where we go, his company make the difference from other tours.

Tour of Lake Como and Villa Carlotta

My husband and I had a wonderful time on our trip from Milan with our tour guide, Renzo Durini , from Your Travel Diary. We were happy that even though it was just the two of us that our tour was not cancelled like our Tivoli Day Trip from Rome with Rome Your Way Tour Company. Renzo met us at the train station in Milan and we traveled by train to Varenna. He was quite knowledgeable about the area. Lake Como is beautiful and the boat ride around the lake was wonderful. It was a delight to see the towns of Varenna, Bellagio, and Tremezzo. I loved the Villa Carlotta and the gardens were beautiful. However, when we were there on June 11 the flowers, such as the azaleas and roses, were no longer in bloom. I really enjoyed our tour with Renzo and would like to return to Lake Como to see some of the other Villas located around the lake. I would recommend this tour to everyone and even told my travel agent to recommend this tour to their clients.

Hello, thank you very much for your nice review. Our min of passengers is 2 people and we usually have a very small group as we like to make it special anytime. I am so glad you enjoyed the tour with us and the Villa Carlotta which is just stunning every season you visit it. Best regards and Happy Travels.

My husband and I were the only ones...
Neal F
, Jul 2018
My husband and I were the only ones who showed up, but the tour went anyway. That was great. Our guide Renzo Durini was very knowledgeable. We arrived in Varenna before the stores were open, so I would have skipped that. I was not interested in the architecture of the several churches in Varenna. Time would have been better spent getting on the boat on Lake Maggiore to Villa Carlotta. Interesting Villa and Renzo had a lot of info about the background. Had enough time to visit the Villa but not the extensive gardens. Next back on boat to Bellagio- I loved Bellagio as I am a shopper. Good recommendation for lunch in Bellagio. Time to shop in Bellagio and back on boat to Varenna to get train to Milan. My changes would be skip Varenna. Go straight to Bellagio- it was better. Eat a snack or lunch at 5 star Grand hotel in Tremezzo after Villa Carlotta. Then I would do boat to Como and either stay overnight there or get train/bus back to Milan. Not sure if all that fits into a day, but I missed not seeing anything of Como environs. I would have been ok getting back to Milan later in the evening if I could see some of Como. I also like to visit 5 star hotels and get a glass of wine there or a pastry. I do appreciate Renzo giving me enough time to shop in Bellagio.

This full day 10 hours or more round...
Philip D
, Jun 2018
This full day 10 hours or more round trip is well worth it. The lake is beautiful and the towns are charming. Our guide, Renzo Durini, was born in Como and now lives in Milan and knows the area and its history extremely well. He is also knowledgeable about Italian history and politics generally, so the hour train trip back and forth from Milan was also well spent. Renzo caters the trip to the tastes of the customers. We were able to spend more time enjoying the art and gardens of the Villa Carlotti in Tremezzo, but, if we had preferred, we could have spent more time shopping in Bellagio. Renzo knows a lot about both places--where to eat, where to shop, what is notable about the works of art. We could have made the train trip by ourselves, but would have missed half of what was notable about the area without Renzo's guidance. If you have time only for a day trip to Lake Como, this tour is definitely worth it.
