      Fantastic and Flexible!
      We had a fantastic time SUP’ing on Lake Como. Christina was extremely flexible and worked around us (we had to change our booking time multiple times due to delays in travel). We would definitely recommend this activity if you are looking for a peaceful way to explore lake como and bellagio

      Amazing experience - Simply a must!
      My partner booked this as a surprise for my birthday - it was our first time in Italy and in Lake Como. We were greeted on time by our tour guide Mitch with our requested paddle boards! Mitch was fantastic, he ensured he answers all our questions, gave some great lessons on the history of Bellagio and surrounding areas and made sure we had the best time possible on the water - we did not feel rushed either. He even had a surprise for us on the water which you will have to book yourselves to find out! Following the tour he gave us some good recommendations for food and drinks in the area including a fantastic wine bar in the town that is a must! The photos do not do it justice and if you’re going to Bellagio a tour with Mitch is a must! Thanks for the experience and sorry the review is so late! Best wishes Joe and Katie.

      Phenomenal!
      WOW! If I could give 10* I would. This trip was amazing. The water is so beautiful and tranquil and this trip has become one of my favourite travelling memories to date. It was an AMAZING trip. Michele is an amazing instructor and man in general. He made me feel so safe and comfortable as a solo traveller. I highly recommend this to EVERYONE! Don’t go to Bellagio without doing this wonderful kayak tour. All the best Michele!

      Incredibly Special Tour
      I had the most wonderful experience on the vintage wooden rowing boat tour. We took the wooden boat from Piscallo Bay and out to the headland around Bellagio with a guided tour of the famous landmarks. It was an incredibly special way to see Lake Como. A tour to be remembered!

      A MUST !
      100% recommend this experience as the first thing you should do in Bellagio! Seeing Lake Como from the kayak was incredibly beautiful and tranquil. Mich allowed us to go at our own pace and stop to take photos whenever we wanted and even took a few of his own to share with us. He was extremely knowledgable about the area and added so much value to our experience, even giving us wine and local cuisine recommendations!! The business has now been operating for over 10 years and we were given a beautiful anniversary gift. Definitely a must do in Lake Como!

      Believe the hype.
      We had such a good experience with Michele from Bellagio Water Sports that I was eager to come home and write him a proper, long winded, descriptive review. After logging in here and seeing 700+ 5 star reviews and a negligible number of less than perfect scores, I'm sure I don't need to say anything that hasn't been said before. Believe the hype. It's a great experience in a beautiful place; Michele is not only a great host but a true professional, a real Bellagio native with deep knowledge of the area, and last but not least, easy on the eyes for a bonus treat.

      Great tour on the lake! Highly recommend
      We had a great afternoon out on the water with Mich, paddle boarding in Bellagio. His knowledge of the local area is brilliant and he makes the whole experience relaxing and fun. The route he takes you is absolutely stunning. The trip included a couple of great surprises too! Thank you Bellagio Watersports!

      Perfect escape onto the lake
      Was very sceptical as I'm not a water fan but loved this tour. Michele our guide is local and was very accommodating when we had a last minute change of plans. We hired two double kayaks with our 11 and 12 year olds and were on the water for approximately 1hr 30mins. We were very lucky with the weather too. Perfect conditions on lake too, calm waters and no wind!

      Great fun on Lake Como
      Excellent experience: we enjoyed comfortable kayaks and outstanding views but Michel’s laid back but attentive guidance made it seem more like a paddle with friends. As well utilized a couple of hours as you can hope for in this wonderful place

      Paddle Boarding
      Paddle boarding was fantastic. So relaxing a beautiful. The lake is so empty and peaceful to be out on. The instructor Mich was fantastic, helped us learn quick and enjoy our time on the water.

      Wonderful tour!
      Myself and four friends had a wonderful 2 hour trip despite the stormy weather. Luckily we just missed the storm but it did mean it was a bit rough. One of our kayaks capsized but he remained calm and professional and got us all back safely. Before the tour he kept in touch with us to make sure we were still going ahead because it had forecast rain, and on the day he was very helpful and informative. We had lovely glass of prosecco mid route and lovely take home pack of information and cookies 😊 will definitely be going back if he will have us!

    We’ve been coming to Lake Como for nearly ten years now and we always plan our trips around a kayak tour with Michele at Bellagio Water sports. Mich is very thorough in ensuring we have a great experience. From the safety rules to myriad stories about the area and points along the tour. There is no better way to connect with the lake and area than a kayak tour with the legendary Michele Gondola at Bellagio Water Sports.

    The tour itself may or may not be good. The serious problem with the tour is that the operator (Michele Gandola) was completely inflexible when it comes to being a minute late. We had booked an 11:30AM tour for four people ($300 Euros) and our car rental had a problem so we had to change cars. We
    - like many people who book - are coming from Milan which is over an hour away. We advised the tour operator on route about the car issue and that we would be a few minutes late. Most tours will give a few minutes grace and plan for that since coming from Milan most people could face something unexpected (and there are hairpin turns coming up). Not only did Michele not give us a minute extra to get up (we arrived at 11:36AM) but she was inflexible in offering us any refund. We have been on other tours where a very late arrival (beyond 10 minutes) could either a) allow you to go out kayaking alone, or b) get some refund. Michele was inflexible. We lost $300 Euro and she had no alternative other than coming the next day at 9AM which was impossible for us. We asked for 50% of our money back given the situation and she did not respond. Anyone who books this expensive tour needs to understand there is a serious risk in doing so.

    Breathtaking views from the water, and the very best host! Mich was so friendly and full of interesting information. He varied his location throughout the tour, speaking not only to the group, but to every person individually. Such a great experience!

    I would give 7 stars (out of 5!!) to this experience . We did a private tour with Michale. He went out of the way to accommodate us and I can say that there was nothing better Michale could have done to make us feel comfortable. He was very knowledgeable and my son (who is 14) was extremely happy with the experience.

    To add to our great experience, my wife is a non-swimmer and Michale went out of his way to ensure that my wife enjoyed the experience by attaching his kayak to another ‘tranquil boat’ where my wife was seated. After the ride, she could not stop smiling as she said that it was one of the best experiences she has ever had, especially for someone who does not swim. Michale was very kind to give her that unique experience.

    If I could, I would definitely come again. All in all, the perfect experience for anyone.

    Two friends and I did the Kayak tour on a Saturday morning and it was glorious. The guide was great and really nice. He took time to stop and explain a bit about the history of the Lake, the different town and places to see. He was keen on answering questions and was great to chat overall. I would definitely recommend if you are in Bellagio! 😊

    We reserved and paid for this months in advance and never received information on where to meet them. When the day came, we tried to go to the address listed for the company but couldn’t find it, so we called. The tour guide was rude and hung up on us. We found him a few minutes later, and he was again unwelcoming and rude. We were a few minutes early and asked for a restroom. He was totally unhelpful and sent us walking in a direction where there were no restrooms. We decided not to go on the kayaks with him — we preferred to lose the money than spend three hours with someone who clearly doesn’t like his job and doesn’t like customers.

    My husband and I had a great experience on our morning Kayak. Overall it was a tranquil morning, made comfortable by Michele. From start to finish he was a friendly and informative host, giving good knowledge of the Bellagio area. He went at our pace and had good chat. He even gave us a a refreshment during our break which was very kind and thoughtful. We would definitely recommend this tour and will be doing this again when we are back.

    Would strongly recommend the kayak tour on the lake! Our guide, Michele, was super friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. Spent about 2 hours on the lake around Bellagio.
    We all had a great time kayaking and the views were simply mind-blowing.

    What a fantastic experience kayaking with Mich around bellagio, lake como. We had a small group of just 4 of us and it was perfect and none of us had kayak but Mich put us at ease. There were a couple of great unexpected surprises along the way which made it truly special. We will be going back for the sunset tour next year !
