be early on smaller stations

be careful as boats cut out stations if no apparent traffic,so if no one is disembarking and there appears to be no one on the quay you may be left so give it at least five minutes

Wonderful relaxing tour with a very nice bar for sipping on cocktails while taking the tour. You get to see the whole lake while the narrator describes the sights.

Had a cruise on a private boat to a restaurant for dinner & back to shore at dusk. Serene lake with old houses dotting the shoreline. Its a pity that there is a Casino which spoilt the serene mood and ambience.This cruise is the highlight if you have a stopover at Lugano.

We purchased the 3 day Lugano regional pass and found it very good value for the boats alone. We used the pass to spend a full day on the boats covering the majority of the lake, with a morning trip with an hour at the small village of Gandria. This was followed by the Lunch cruise. We had a main... More

April-Middle of October when people are ALL over. During this time, there is music all over the town often, some concerts, many and I mean MANY tourists...... More
