“Relaxing and nice trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

The views from Stressa are very nice. You can already see the gorgeous islands. The boat trips are very well organised. They are very punctual and there are also many boats, which give you the freedom to explore at your own pace. Isola madre and Isola bella were stunning. Dont expect to see the most amazing buildings or gardens, but you will love the scenary and you'll be taking a lot of pictures.

“excellent relaxing way to travel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

We used this public service several times during our stay in the area. Although it is a little expensive, the boats are frequent and you can choose your own itinerary. We had a fantastic day visiting the Borromea Islands (a must do trip) and we also used the service to get to Pallanza.

The boats are huge so they are never crowded. Make sure you book using the official booth (based in Stresa and Baveno) and don't use the frequent private hire boats whose reps are constantly pushing for business in the car parks.

“Beautiful Day Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Get the package deal to visit all islands and buy tour tickets at same time. Only go to the official booth at the dock - avoid being ripped off by private boats who accost you on shore. We were warned by locals to avoid them. The price for 4 adults for the boat and island tours was $40 EA. Be sure to allow plenty of time for the last stop at Isola Madre to have plenty of time to tour the Palazzo Borromeo, spectacular grotto and gardens. It was magnificent!
