The service was excellent! The tour was informative but kept going where it was interesting the entire time. Our young son went and they were really good to him. Thank you for a good ride!

Our hotel recommended we go with Bellagio Water Taxis when we asked about seeing Villa Balbianello and we were so glad! This was the way to go -- in a classic boat with Luca entertaining us during the trip. (Ok, it helped that the weather was gorgeous that day.) Our guided tour of the villa was arranged for us, and...

This is a must if you visit Bellagio! Jennine and her husband Lucca run the Bellagio Water Taxis and are a great team. I emailed Jennine several months in advance to book our tour and everything went smoothly. Our group of 14 did the tour of the lake together with a visit to Villa Balbianello which was sensational. The weather... More

Our hotel (wonderful Hotel Belvedere) prearranged a tour to Villa Balbianello for us with Bellagio water taxis. It turned out to be the best connection we could have hoped for in Bellagio. The excursion itself was perfect and Luca was a great guide--don't miss this place! But, additionally, Jennine took a personal interest in us and spent quite a bit... More

I contacted Jennine at Bellagio water taxis about a tour on Lake Como. She got right back to me with prices and a tour that was exactly what we wanted to see. Our tour was in a boat similar to a ChrisCraft. It was a beautiful boat that Lucca, Jennine's husband kept in tip top condition. He took us the... More

The public ferry service is efficient and runs on a published schedule. However, if you want to save time you could opt for the water taxi and its about Euro 50 depending on where you want to go.

Luca was our guide on a private water tour of Lake Como. He was knowlegeable, charming and funny. It was a beautiful day on the lake and Luca made sure we saw everything in all it's glory. That day made our trip to Italy, even more memorable. I also must mention that he keeps his boat maintained beautifully. It was... More

I was looking for a special trip on Lake Como while we were there for a long weekend in September and picked the Bellagio Water Taxis from the good Trip Advisor reviews. I sorted it all out really easily with Jennine over emails who welcomed us so warmly when we arrived on the day. The boats are wonderful and Luca... More

Bellagio water taxis offers an excellent 2.5 hour tour to Villa Balbienello, which includes the roundtrip transfer and also the guided tour of the villa. This tour costs 50 Euros per person. (It is already 13 Euros to tour the villa and garden so I thought this was a very good deal). Reservations can be made beforehand by emailing through... More
