Booking our trip a month in advance was very simple. We selected the 5 hour tour and it was incredible. The weather was perfect and Giacomo took excellent care of us. We visited all the sites: Villa Erba Villa D'Este Villa Versace Villa Oleandra ( George Clooney ) Waterfall of Urio Island Comacina Villa Cassinella (Richard Branson ) Villa Balbianello Villa Carlotta Bellagio for some shopping We had lunch away from Bellagio at a a family run restaurant recommended by Giacomo on the water. Incredible food! The overall experience was truly memorable and Giacomo was the very best guide! His knowledge of the area and pride in his country was evident.

We found Giacomo on the internet. No referral, just blind luck. Everything he promised was true. He called the morning of our scheduled trip to confirm. Then again thirty minutes before our agreed arrival time to lead us to a parking space right on the water! Service we did not expect but appreciated. His English is very good. The boat was beautiful and perfectly maintained. We spent three hours on the water with a stop in Bellagio. The tour was perfectly paced and comfortable. Giacomo had a great attitude. He highlighted various points of interest and answered our questions but did not chatter incessantly. Our boat trip on Lake Como was an excellent experience. Highly recommended.

From the time that we were picked up at our hotel to being dropped off after an amazing dinner at a restaurant recommended by Giacomo, It was the perfect 5 hour tour. Definitely stop for lunch or dinner if you do a five hour stint as there is something special about arriving by your own boat to have dinner and the trip home afterwards. We also were able to look at the Riva Museum ( thanks to a friend of Giacomo)where Earnest Rive made his first craft in the 1700's and the old power boats are still the most beautiful speed boats ever made. One of those days that you cherish for ever and Giacomo is the undoubtedly the nicest captain/guide we have ever had and a stunning boat. Don't waste your money anywhere else and some of them can be very expensive. Grazie Giacomo

We had such a great time with Giacomo on our 5-hour tour! He stopped at all of the best locations on the lake and made the ride very enjoyable. For us, 5 hours was plenty of time. We saw plenty on the lake, were able to get off and have lunch in Bellagio, take about 30 minutes to walk around, and then tour back. It was absolutely a great day and we want to thank Giacomo for the opportunity! I would highly recommend using him!

We did a 7-hour tour with Giacomo today and enjoyed every bit of it. We had a group of 8, 4 adults, 3 teenagers and 1 6-year old. Giacomo made the tour fun for all of us. Not only did he tell us about different villas and events around the lake, he also gave us great suggestions for lunch and dinner restaurants. We would absolutely do another tour with Giacomo when we come back to Como.
