Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    A good tour of the Lake Como area. The boat ride was relaxing and beautiful. We had a lovely, sunny day for the tour. Our guide was knowledgeable about the area and enough time was provided at each stop. The driver was amazing!

    This was a great tour. Violeta was very knowledgeable. I think without this tour I would have had difficult time navigating the ferries around the lake. Violeta was able to get us to the front of the lines and took us to Beatiful areas in lake como . Thank you so much

    Excellent experience. Patrizia and Luca were phenomenal hosts. We enjoyed the pasta making and tiramisu as well—but these two hosts and the view were too notch. Book this experience.

    The experience offered by Renzo on this tour was truly one of the highlights of our Italy trip! It’s been a week and we are still raving about how much fun we had, how much we learned and what an incredible person & tour guide Renzo is. This tour is worth every single euro so we highly, HIGHLY recommend it.

    It was easy to identify the tour group at the train station with the sign and finding the Burger King, which offered an easy start to the day. Renzo took care of the train and ferry tickets throughout the day, which may seem like a simple detail but it allowed us more time to focus on enjoying the more exciting moments of the day instead of logistics. The train ride to Varenna was smooth and Renzo shared a lot of details with us that would make the rest of the day flow smoothly. We appreciated that our tour group was small and we had the opportunity to meet two amazing guys from Singapore! Having a small group made it easy to get around and we didn’t waste time waiting on anyone.

    In Varenna, we had time to get coffee at a local cafe and stop in a small shop that sold incredible lavender goods, it truly smelled like heaven in there! Our next stop was Villa Carlotta, which was absolutely incredible! Renzo was so knowledgeable about every piece of art, every room, every flower, herb, etc. and that truly elevated our experience there! We enjoyed a lovely lunch in Bellagio after Renzo took us on a tour through the village. The ferry ride back was beautiful. Renzo encouraged us to be on the bottom so we could enjoy an unobstructed view of the wondrous lake and it was indeed a sight to behold!

    This tour felt like a once in a lifetime opportunity and we are so grateful that Renzo was there to guide us through the experience. He was so patient as he answered all of our questions. He made sure that we had specific details on when and where to meet yet we never felt rushed. The day felt well thought and planned out. Renzo’s knowledge and passion shown through and we wish we could take him everywhere when we travel!

    Wonderful experience. Really exceeded our expectations. Our guide Pietro was wonderful, very informative and funny. It was a small tour group of just 12 people. The tour started in Varenna and ended in Bellavia. It included an olive oil mill and tasting with wine, salami and cheeses. Also included a really nice lunch with a fish or meat menu option and unlimited wine overlooking the lake. The food was delicious. This tour was like three experiences in one. The girls enjoyed the private boat ride to visit 2 Villas and amazing gardens. Would highly recommend this tour.

    Excellent day! We picked up the tour in Varenna and meet our tour guide Guilla and a wonderful couple-Zac and Rachel who toured with us. Go Buckeyes--small world. Enjoyed the day of traveling to cheese country, with lunch at an wonderful local restaurant, followed by trip to dry stone wall vineyard and winery for tour and tasting. Great fun and exceptional tour guide. Well worth the money and the day7!

    This was a very fun experience! The boat tour was the perfect amount of time around the lake and our guide was very nice and showed us a lot of really cool things. The lunch wasn’t our favorite but still cool to experience and the villas were beautiful! Over all I highly recommend going!

    The boat captain and driver only spoke Italian. The boat was late arriving because the company never booked his service. We had to arrange our own transport to the pickup point for 100 euros since the company acknowledged they they didn’t actually provide this service despite advertising it. The driver didn’t wear a mask. This is a company that claims to arrange a transport series for you but in fact fails at each and every aspect of their job. The poor boat and car drivers are subjected to their constant disorganization and messiness. WORST TOUR I HAVE EVER DONE. Basically I just had to arrange it entirely myself. So… why pay the fee for someone else - who fails to do so anyway?

    We hired flytographer to capture our group and the individuals/couples who were part of the group. We had a fabulous hour with our photographers Ylenia and Lorenzo. They had several spots already picked out and the images are superb!! They exceeded our expectations! A must do!!!

    We really enjoyed this walking tour with Nadia. She was very flexible in that it was raining in the morning and she delayed the start for 1 hour so we did not have to walk in the rain. I would say the difficulty of this hike/walk is moderate. It was up or down the majority of the way. But if you are in decent shape it is not a problem. Nadia is a native of Varenna and did a great job of explaining the history and significance of the places we visited. The views along the way were just amazing.

    We met Nadia in the square in Varenna. She was friendly and welcoming. We visited churches, a romantic beach and heard stories about people and life in Varenna. Nadia was so knowledgeable and happy to share her stories. We then visited a local wine shop for a wine tasting. The sommelier was so professional and shared 3 delicious wines and local meats and cheeses with us. Such a great way to enjoy the beautiful Varenna.
