My kids thought it a 4* review but I've given it 5

Its super cheap
Super efficient
Good guidance of landmarks and laminated pics of monuments

Due to a low water level. We were unable to go under the drawbridge but it didn't detract from the overall experience

The views were breathtaking and have given us a glimpse of what is to come at Lake Como

If you're short of time and want a well organized professional tour. Then look no further

FYI. Their email advice to numerous questions I had several days before were simply magnificent

Great views and lucky with the weather. Good explanations of landmarks on the lake, around Sirmione - the guy took the time to ask his audience their language and spoke accordingly. For the price, it's very much recommended. Thanks

Nice trip around the Sirmione peninsula, not at all pricey and both a scenic and interesting trip. The captain also acted as storyteller and guide. Recommended if you only can or want to spend about 30 minuts. Our kids age 10 & 11 also loved it!

I am sure that those supporting this mini cruise are correct. But be aware of the fact that getting to the cruise terminal is very easy if you take the ferry from Desenzano port to Sirmione. So we pr-booked the cruise tied in to bus times from Verona ro Desenzano.

What neither the cruise company nor the bus company informed us of was that there was to be a major air show over the lake in that area and that the busses would not run to the ferry port and that the ferry would not run either. We had been in Verona for 5 days before this planned trip and had not seen any reference to this event we departed our hotel at 0830 and got back to our hotel at 1530 have seen nothing planned for the trip just a lot of walking and sitting on busses

If you plan to do this cruies just check that there are no local events planned.

Dear Colin, Unfortunately we cannot take care about how customer reach us, and furthermore we do not know how customers reach us. Sirmione is always crowded, and often people run late to the appointment, and for this reason we give the possibility to use same tickets and take a later departure...

A Special thanks to Matteo, our top guide and gifted photographer, who gave us great recommendations about where to eat (outised the fuzz) and to visit an unforgetable little hidden place nearby: Borguetto su il Mincio. Grazie Mile, Matteo!

Lovely quick trip round the area by boat. Very clean boat, plenty of space and easy to find. The guide was informative but maybe sit lower to the front to hear everything.
Very cheap price foe the trip also.

Advertised as 25 minutes, but we were back in 15. We were shown one thermal point and were speeding at one point, which was funny. Not much explanation in English. I still are not sure which villa was used by Callas or what the Catullus Grottoes are. For 10 euro we were not disappointed and this boat was very nice. But notice there are a lot of boat trips, you can also just try some without a booking. Anyway, sailing around Sirmione is a must do if you do not rent or have a boat yourself.

The Team arranging the tour is professional and helpfull.
I missed my tour because of a transport issue but they kindly were able to adjust me in next tour after 30 minutes.
The guide/driver was a nice guy and was able to provide a lot of info about the various locations and was stopping in place where we were able to take perfect pictures.I must say this was the Top event of my visit to Italy.

A great way to experience all the beauties and attractions of Sirmeone. The city delighted me. Our skipper Mateo contributed to that. Witty and very charming with lots of interesting stories.
The children especially enjoyed it because Mateo allowed them to sit behind the wheel and be real captains of the ship for a minute. Thanks Mateo!
