I booked the trip with Getyourguide and had several emails to remind me about the trip, We were lucky and had clear weather. Luca the driver was such an expert driver going through small streets and even stopped (if he could and allowed) for us to have a look at the nice views. The guide, Sara was excellent and professional, explaining the history of the sites as well as the most recent happenings. I really enjoyed the bus ride and boat ride. I travelled with my husband, we are seniors with our adult son. We all enjoyed the trip and is worth the money we paid.

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.

Amazing trip, some of the most beautiful sights in Northern Italy/Switzerland. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and was able to explain everything in English, Spanish and Italian. Would love to even go again in another time of year to see the different seasons

Sara was a great tour guide! Excellent food recommendations and very knowledgeable about the history of lake como. I would recommended this tour to anyone visiting Milan

Had a wonderful time during this day trip. It was absolutely wonderful and our guide and bus driver were so nice and friendly.
