Marco made this trip delightful. He met me promptly at my hotel and traveled with me from Milano to Varenna. He explained history and politics. He made me feel very comfortable and he was a warm ambassador of his country. The places we visited were simply breathtaking. Despite a rainy afternoon, every aspect of the long day was wonderful. I would not only book this tour again for myself, but I would also do the same for friends, family, and colleagues. I am sure that the sights of Lake Como and its grand villas would be special with most guides, but Marco elevated the experience to heights that I have not found paralleled in more than 59 years of international traveling. Do yourself a favor and reserve this day with him! Be sure to wear comfortable shoes. And try to be well rested, as the day was very long...almost 12 hours. But blissful nonetheless!

Lake Como was possibly the highlight of my trip made all the more amazing thanks to my Tour Guide Marco. Marco is born and bred in Milan and incredible at what he does. As with my other City Unscripted Tours, Marco got in touch with me a few days before the tour to check in, let me know what he had planned (checking if I wanted to change anything) and where we were meeting. Right on time, Marco showed up and I saw the value in having him instantly. I walked straight onto the train and just went along for the journey, with Marco having organised everything. Having Marco plan the entire trip was amazing and meant I could really enjoy my time. Marco was on hand with history and stories the whole day, was a fantastic photographer and even was there to help me shop! This tour is a must do and even better with Marco! Highly recommend, especially for solo travellers.

We chose City Unscripted for this day trip from Milan to Como, as we wanted to tick off few things from our bucket list and it turned out to be one perfect trip from beginning till the end - thanks to our guide Marco.

We wanted to explore Villa Balbionella where awesome shots in movies like Star-Wars, Casino Royale were taken, and also Indian cinema stars Ranveer+Deepika got married here. We also wanted to check out Bellagio and also had planned a separate Amphibious car tour in Varenna on the same evening.
No tour available online could meet all these requirements except this tour by city Unscripted and we are thankful to them.

Marco was very knowledgable, punctual, fluent in English and above all he was a great friendly chap to travel with. He was patient, listened to our requirements, helped us with a ton of pictures and the day was so smooth with not a worry in our minds. All 3 of us explored the villa and marveled at its magnificence.

Lunch at a nice stop in Bellagio and then the exciting amphibious car tour with Larioland (not in the scope of this review). Marco was with us giving us useful tips throughout and we learned a lot about Como, Milan, and Italy in general.

We were a little late to reach Milan as it was a packed day full of exciting things, and Marco with his knowledge from doing Milan food tours pointed out some good eateries in Milan. We eventually ate in a Michelin star Indian cuisine Tara, as suggested by him.
It was a great day that we will remember for the rest of our lives and above all we got a new friend in Milan.
All the best Marco & City Unscripted; continue to spread happiness.

Via this booking you'll be allocated by a company with a "friend" who visited Como 2nd time, knowns no routes, no history, nothing. He would talk about his business ideas, hobbies, life in general and you'd know nothing new about the Como lake.

If you looking for a personalized tour from an experienced guide who knows his stuff, definitely check out this City Unscripted tour. We were lucky to be hosted by Marco Michele Di Chio. He's a native Italian who speaks fluent English and not only knows the detailed logistics and history of this Lake Como tour, but he can help you with so many other details regarding Milan and European travels in general. He has a great way of helping you customize the trip the way you like it, at a pace that's comfortable for you as well. It is a truly spectacular trip and area. The journey is wonderful as well as the stunning destinations. Don't hesitate to book this magnificent tour especially if Marco is your guide. He is a great asset to City Unscripted. Having Marco as our guide just made an incredible trip all the more enjoyable. Thank you City Unscripted! Outstanding!
