Daniele was our tour guide for the Resistance Tour. He was born in Como and knows the area extremely well. He was also passionate about the WWII history and its impact on the area. He told us the full story about the capture of Mussolini and the goings on at the time. We found him to be knowledgeable, personable and flexible when providing the tour. We found him to be charming and would highly recommend this tour.

L'esperienza positiva con Slow Lake Como inizia già dal primo contatto. Mi ha stupito la velocità e cortesia del team. L'itinerario a cui ho partecipato era originale e ben calibrato. Appena avrò tempo parteciperò sicuramente ad altre iniziative. Bravi! Grazie ancora per la splendida giornata!
