My wife and I with our two teens enjoyed an August day zooming up and down the lake. Such fun, and no experience needed. We docked and had lunch. Enjoyed seeing all the billionaries houses!! Great company

The boat was easy to rent, very clean, and ran well. The instructions were clear and staff helpful. Loved the Villas of Lake Como instruction book. Did not use their app but I am sure it would have been useful.

I took my girlfriend on the boat at sunset to propose. The staff were so helpful setting it up and put a bottle of prosseco on board for us. Very reasonably priced and would recommend to anyone.
