What to expect
Meet your guide and tour group in central Milan, at the Milan Visitor Center. There, board your tour vehicle and leave the driving to someone else while you relax and take in the scenery. Your guide takes you on an itinerary tailored to the season so you can best experience what Lake Como has to offer. All food and drink is at your own expense. Spring/Summer Tour (April to October) Once in the town of Como, explore the town with your guide, including the Basilica of Sant’Abbondio and other highlights. Learn about the history and culture of the town and what makes Lake Como attractive to luxury travelers. Spend free time exploring the local boutiques and eateries before cruising Lake Como. Have your camera ready for snaps of the scenery—its picturesque towns with the Alps in the background—for which the lake is famous. Dock in the village of Bellagio, where you can explore independently, with suggestions from your guide. Return on a boat ride to Cadenabbia, where your coach conveniently meets you for the trip back to Milan. Fall/Winter Tour (November to March) After a scenic journey to Como, follow your guide for an in-depth tour of the city. Learn about its highlights and history, and take the funicular for the ride to Brunate. From one of the highest points overlooking Lake Como, take in views and snap panoramic photos. Explore Brunate on your own, using your guide’s suggestions. Next up is the Lake Como cruise, during which you can admire the shoreline and its lakeside villas. Your guide points out Villa d'Este at Cernobbio, a hot spot for the rich and famous, surrounded by lush, manicured gardens. Back on shore, wander Como, grabbing a traditional Italian coffee or shopping for Italian souvenirs. Board the bus for the ride back to Milan, stopping at the impressive Basilica of Sant'Abbondio on the way. Regardless of the season, you get dropped off at your original pickup location in Milan.

This was the perfect day trip for getting to the major sights on Lake Como! Pick up was easy, we walked from our hotel about 20 mins to the meeting point and was easily found by one of the group organizers. The bus was clean and there were about 30 passengers, but plenty of space and seats. Our tour guide gave a brief overview of some sights in Milan on the way to Como. Perfect amount of time to have a brief guided tour (15 mins) and then over an hour to explore Como on our own! After meeting with the group, the tour guide easily made it onto the large ferry boat for the two hour boat ride to Bellagio. Definitely recommend getting on the boat early, and trying to get seats in the middle by the sides to actually see and take photos while in the shade. It was definitely hotter on the first level, so try to get into the second level if you can. The boat makes lots of stops so the ride feels pretty lengthy, but the sights are so beautiful. Getting off the boat will be a bit hectic if you don’t try to move down stairs early, but if you don’t mind waiting a while then it’s okay to take your time. Bellagio was very busy (July is a super heavy month for tourism) but it was very beautiful with lots of shops and places to eat. We walked to la punta (the point) where you have a better view of Lake Como and got lunch at the restaurant over there. A little pricey for lunch but was fast, great quality food, and a fantastic view of the lake. Getting home was easy because we took a 5 minute ferry across the lake where our tour bus met us. Overall it was the perfect trip for us because we didn’t have to worry about booking transportation or figure out our own activities to do. It was a long day (8:30-5:45) but it was well worth it to see the things we wanted to see and a very reasonable price! Definitely book it!

Tour and guides both good, adequate time at each location. The Lake Como cruise was disappointing, you need to be on the top deck to get a good window view but there are few seats and they were filled very quickly. There are seats in the lower deck but the perspex windows are very scratched and dirty so very little can be seen. The guides audio commentary system did not work well on the cruise.

This was an amazing day trip which I fully recommend. The coach to and from lake Como and Bellagio was very good and was air conditioned which was needed with the 33 degree heat.

Lovely staff who spoke good English and shared loads of facts and pointed out all the interesting points. Once we got to Lake Como (first destination) they had supplied us with a bottle of water which was very handy in the hot weather.

Lake Como was so beautiful with lots of little local shops. The buildings were colourful and well detailed in the designs. The views were out of this world.

The boat trip was okay, little bit busy but I fully enjoyed it. You have the option of inside or outside. But the outside seats go quickly (recommend getting at the front of the queue to get in the boat).

Our visit to Bellagio was great. The tour guide had recommended some amazing restaurants. Which I had tried the lasagna and it was to die for. We managed to have a swim in the lake and also have a look in the local shops.

Overall I really recommend this trip!!

I do not recommend Zan Viaggi tour company for any families travel due to their extremely poor customer service and untrained staff. They do not answer any phone calls or emails during urgencies. I got 15 mins late for the initial part of the tour due to city wide taxi strike and missed my bus but the tour refused to help my family with kids in any way or guide us to meet with the tour at the next meeting point. I bought a train ticket to Lake Cuomo which costed only $5 and a boat ticket (10 E)to go to Lake Bellagio at my own expense. The cost of travel to Lake Bellagio is very low and tourists do not need to spend such high cost for the ferry. It was only with the help of tour guide, Salvatore that I was able to join the tour on the boat for the last few hours. I was not able to get the audio head phones but other people on the tour complained of their poor audio quality. The boat provided in the tour is the same public boat provided by the own. Over all Lake Bellagio is a beautiful place and worth visitng and there are lot of other options to go Lake Bellagio instead of paying a premium price for this company that does not care for families with young kids.

I wouldn’t recommend this trip.

The boat/ferry we was on was absolutely packed. Your on it for 2 hours to get to Bellagio. There are limited seats. So we stood for 2 hours in the Italian sun. You can’t even get to the side of the boat to take photos as so over crowded. They make you buy ffp3 face masks (they don’t accept surgical masks) for 3euro each to get on the boat itself- they don’t let you on without this specific mask. Then when you get on everyone takes it off anyway. Seems to be a money making scheme.

Lake commo is beautiful. But there isn’t anything to see in Bellagio that you can’t see going for a stroll in lake commo.

A lot cheaper to get the train from Milano Cardona train station to lake commo.

The guide simply told us you have an hour+ in lake commo and 2 hours in Bellagio, meet back at this point. On the boat he told us about the houses on the lake itself but we couldn’t see them as couldn’t even get to the edge of the boat.

Overall very disappointing and not at all enjoyable.

Pro: the organisation with on-time departure worked well and it was convenient to travel by bus and not have to worry about tickets or the timetable. There was plenty of time (possibly TOO much) to discover Como and Bellagio on our own.

Cons: at this price and with this description, we expected a real tour guide who would tell us a lot of exciting things. We were bitterly disappointed in this point. The comments were rather rare and very short, without further explanations. On the boat trip, there was only information like "here is another beautiful old villa", we expected much more information.

Conclusion: this tour is only suitable for transport, but you can get away a lot cheaper with the independent journey by train...

The tour was overcrowded ( like 2 grey hound buses full) and headsets that were given to hear guide were unclear. The described boat tour of lake Como was actually just hopping on water ferry/ taxi and sitting while the ferry did its stops on 4 or 5 ports and then all over again as it headed back to Como port. Never went to bellagio, I guess they don’t go there in winter months. I was not informed of that until at lake Como. I ended up being very disappointed on something I was so looking forward to seeing.

I’ve never been on a guided tour where you are not allowed to ask questions. When we asked questions such as when and where we were supposed to meet up again, the tour guide “mikayla” through her hand in our face and would not speak to us unless it was through the radio/earphones device. The “boat cruise” was a public transportation ride through lake como, don’t be fooled. Additionally the tour guide in my humble opinion loved the sound of her own voice, rambling on the loud bus speaker rather than letting passengers enjoy the scenery from Milan to Como peacefully. Ultimately I wouldn’t recommend this company, or tour guide especially.

Dear Julia, I am sorry about your experience on our tour, we value the quality of service and the experience of our costumer above all. I apologize for the behaviour of your guide and I guarantee she won't be working with us anymore. I hope you can come again to Milan and experience another of our tours. Best regards

Left from Milan via coach. Giusy, the guide, did a very good job of describing the sites on the way to Como. We had a short guided tour of Como and a narrated ferry tour around the southern tip of Lake Como. We are lunch and had a ride up the funicular and walked around to discover panoramic views of the lake. A beautiful day tour.

Como, the largest city in this region. Along the way we are regularly treated to beautiful views of small villages on the other side of the lake. The radiant sun makes it even more idyllic, but otherwise there is little to do in this region (at this time of year).
