Finding something everyone likes when traveling with three families that include teenage children can be quite a challenge. A C Boat did a great job. We rented two boats for a full 7 hour day on Lake Come and had a blast. The boats were nearly new and spotless. Andreas gave us good instructions and the maps they provided were... More

Of all boats we have rented on the Italian lakes over the past years, the boats from AC Boat Menaggio are by far the nicest, cleanest, best maintained and best-value-for-money! People are very friendly, helpfull and speak many languages. They really know Lake Como and tell you which areas are best to see at what time of day.

We hired a boat from AC Boat in early June. The boat was spotless and advise very good. Great not to have the usual problem of paying for fuel as an extra at the end of the hire. Hope to go back again.

Slightly expensive but well worth the money. Highly recommend hiring a boat through AC for 4 hours in the morning.

Boats are in very good condition, staff is very friendly and helpful, price is o.k. Th etrip on the lake is definately the best you can do to discover the lake and... More

We rented a boat with AC boat rental on 19/5/15. They were very quick to respond to emails and the service they provided was superb. We rented a boat for 2 hours for €110 and was the best money we spent during the trip. When you are here it is a once in a lifetime experience to drive your own... More

Thoroughly recommend AC boats. This is a must do when visiting the lakes. No better way to see it than at your own pace. Boat was easy to operate. We hired it for 3 hours and saw plenty. Pack a picnic and enjoy.

We rented a boat for 2 hours (no license required) and toured the Lake. Clean, new boat easy to operat. Better than the ferry or a private guided boat. We went where we wanted and enjoyed the sun. Boat was delivered to us in Bellagio. Reasonable cost. Better view of the Villas and gardens than from land.

Not being on the water in Lake Como is a huge mistake!! The best part of visiting the area is spending a day on the water and enjoying the scenery and villas, most of which can not be seen from the street. AC Boat responded immediately to my initial query and answered any of my follow up questions just as... More

Very accommodating and boats were easy to operate and in great condition. Rented for 7 hours and easily saw entire Lake Como while stopping for lunch and villa touring. Staff was very helpful and personable.
