It was raining so I stayed inside the boat from where I could hardly see anything. On arrival there was very little to do and to use a toilet I had to go to a café. I went to two cafes and service was so slow it took up all the time I was there. As for lovely views, well,... More

Thank you Mr Luca for a wonderful tour of he magnificent Lake Como, Italy. This guy really knows how to take care of his charges. His delightful sense of humour and informative commentary added to the spectacular tour he gave us. Well worth the money we paid. Arndrae and Bobbie, Adelaide, South Australia

We were staying in Fiumelatte and contacted Luca by phone. We arranged a 1 hour trip and he picked us up at the little jetty in Fiumelatte just a few yards from our apartment. The trip was fantastic,Luca was very knowledgable and we had an enjoyable time. I strongly recommend Luca and his boat!!!

We took a water taxi tour of Lake Como and the Villa del Balianello. It was an enjoyable 2.5 hours for 55 €. Luca was a safe and friendly guide who was very funny. He knows a lot about Lake Como and made the trip very enjoyable. The Villa was used in the movies Casino Royale and Star Wars 2... More

The taxi boat evening cruise with Luca was a great way to see central Lake Como! It was so nice to be out on the water, with such great views, interesting sites, and a friendly and knowledgeable host. The tour was great, and also really helped us to plan the rest of our stay on the lake. Thanks Luca!

If you want a fantastic way to see the lake I recommend you give Luca a call. We did the 1 hour trip today and it was awesome. Tidy, clean and safe boat, piloted by a knowledgable and fun guy. Took us to some great sights, had a laugh and taught us a few things about the lake that none... More

We did the villa tour and had a blast. Great stories from Luca about the various buildings along the lake shore. Definitely worth it and we recommend this tour to anyone visiting Varenna

While staying in Tremezzo we purchased an 'on/off' day pass on the ferry between Tremezzo/Varenna/Menaggio/Bellagio/Lenno/Tremezzo. Our first stop was Varenna and we were completely taken aback by the beauty, buildings, friendliness of the locals and overall ambience of this little town. We could have spent the day there and in retrospect found it much more alluring than the ever busy... More
