We had a wonderful time and learned so much! Our tour guide was lovely and the pesto pasta was truly a highlight. We highly recommend this tour.

Renzo was the perfect tour guide for this breathtaking trip. His knowledge of Italy, and the city of Como, was a great historical bounty. We toured the streets, saw the sights, and shared delicious morsels throughout the day. Each savory stop was delightful and worth it. Our boat ride on Lake Como was incredible. Seeing the villas, homes, and villages from this view was stunning. Renzo also guided us through a quaint fishing village and the views were spectacular. I highly recommend wearing sneakers or other very comfortable walking footwear, your feet will thank you.

Renzo, our tour guide, provided a great and delicious way to experience the town of Como and Lake Como area. It was also seamless and hassle-free as RT train transportation from Milan was included; Renzo escorted us on the one-hour train ride to Como during which time he gave us a historical perspective on the Lake Como region. We enjoyed incredible scenery during the one-hour boat ride on the lake and during our stopover in the very cute town of Torno. I highly recommend this tour and Renzo if you’re short on time and looking for a fun and memorable way to experience the Lake Como area while in Milan.

100% Recommendation!! 5 Star all the way!! RENZO was absolutely phenomenal. His background as a lawyer (as am I) really amped the experience with his superior presentation and knowledge of Italy, Lake Como and wine
