My wife and I (who are in our mid 70’s) booked a boat tour of Lake Garda back in August 11 for a 2:00 pm trip today, September 21st.

Unfortunately, we missed the tour because we had misunderstood the meeting place to be at the dock in Desanzano (where Garda Tours had their blue umbrella) instead of the nearby town of Sirmione (where the tour starts and ends).

Our train from Milan arrived in Desanzano at 12:38pm. After exiting the train, we realized we left one bag in the carriage. We headed to the dock and found the blue umbrella, but nobody was there. We asked the operator of another tour company for help and he was kind enough to make several phone calls to Garda Tours on our behalf. Besides trying to locate the tour group, we also went to the Visitor Information Center to see if they could contact the train company to locate our luggage.

We are giving Garda Tours a 5 Star ***** Rating because Irene was very understanding of our predicament and has assured us a full refund of the unused trip.

Excellent boat trip round the lake. Very organised and well looked after. The driver was very informative and helpful. Prosecco was provided and we even got some pizza which wasn’t in the booking info. Would highly recommend.
You get to see beautiful views of the lake, islands and mountains. 4 hours was a good amount of time for the whole trip.

There's a big ferry from Peschiera that covers every town on the lake. Made a day of it last year and it was fabulous . We literally sat there all day watching the scenery , hopped off at the end for an hour and took the same boat back to town. The terminal is right on the shore , timetable in the window. Sorry guided tours...you lose.

I would have to say this was more of a boat trip than boat tour, as there was little narration given other than pointing out important buildings. However, that said, it was an enjoyable four hours on the water with an affable driver named Franco ( I think). This company runs boats every day in the summer, nearly all day, so there are many options for times available. While booking in advance might save some time, most people buy their tickets on the spot. [There is only one listed 4 hour tour on the Sirmione boats website which is this one on Wednesday at 2:00 or 10:00 in the summer.]The boats are basically the 15-20 passenger speed boats. Note: The boats do not all have canopies so be certain to tell the personnel when you check in that you want to be in the shade if that is important.
Our tour left from the marina outside the city walls of Sirmione near the castle. We drove the length of the islet then off to the west. After about an hour to an hour and a half of cruising, we were offered a glass (or glasses--as many as you wanted) of Prosecco and a portion of soft pizza-like dough/bread with tomato sauce and mozzarella. At this point, any one who wanted to swim could jump off the back of the boat and have a swim. We were not near the shore, but rather just dropped anchor. About half the people on our boat went for a dip.
Note: there are no changing facilities or towels so bring your own towels and plan to 'drip-dry'.
After this we headed for the little town of Salo where Mussolini attempted to reorganize his government here, bringing all his ministries to this tiny lake side town. It was too late for Mussolini though as the war ended shortly after his move. We spent about an hour here on our own.
Leaving Salo, we headed back to Sirmione, entering the town under the castle bridge from the east, returning to the marina. We paid about $60 US per person through Viator for the four hour ride. It was worth the price and worth doing one time.

Booked the 4 hour afternoon (1400-1800) trip for Wednesday 27th June 2018, actually from the UK, a lady, Irene replied. It seems most people do it as a spur of the moment thing.

A professional guy skippered the boat, respectful of other lake users and sought to minimise the effect of both the wash from his boat and the effect of other vessels on us. After taking in some of the sights the boat stopped and Prosecco (or water) was provided in safety champagne flutes, those that wanted to could swim off the back of the boat. Following that we carried on to the town of Salo on the west side of the lake and moored there for an hour enabling some exploration of this pretty town. It had started to rain, wasn't forecast so the skipper extended the canvas roof of the boat to at least afford the passengers some protection, got back to Sirmione around 1800. A really lovely afternoon out on the water.

This was an afternoon well spent. The driver of the boat was friendly, fun and knowledgeable. We got to go swimming in the lake and had some pizza and prosecco on the boat afterwards. A short stop off on the west side of the lake was a nice opportunity to stroll around before heading back to Sirmione.

We opted for the 4 hour tour at €50 each. The weather was beautiful but at 32+ degrees it was hot. The boat was modern and fun and the scenery was beautiful. The captain helpful and welcoming.
Two observations.
There were c20 people on the boat, and given the heat, that was just too cramped. Too many hot sweaty legs pressing against mine. the rating would have been higher had there been fewer people.
Second, they ran out of beer before half way, so bring your own.

By the time we got to Salò we needed a break and the hour there was lovely.

Recommendation, If you can afford it, pay the bit extra and get the private boat tour for 2 hrs.... that is long enough.

We booked the 4 hour tour that we really enjoyed with less than 20 people on the boat. The driver was very knowledgeable and entertaining.
During the whole trip there was enough Pizza, cool water and also alcoholic beverages like prosecco and beer for everyone on board.
We also made a stop in the middle of the lake and everyone who liked could go for a short swim. You won't be able to change your clothes on the boat, so be prepared for that.

This boat trip was a wonderful mix of fun, information, glorious views and a great experience in southern Lake Garda. Finding and getting on board the boat was straightforward with friendly and efficient staff at SirmioneBoats. The schedule for the afternoon was a perfect balance and sequence: spotting key locations from the lake, refreshments and time for a swim, then a while on land wandering Salo at your leisure, before a little more touring on the boat and a fast trip back to Sirmione. Go prepared for the swim - lots of people missed this opportunity because they didn't realise it was part of the tour, but cooling off in the lake's gorgeous water was ideal - although of course there's no obligation if you don't want to. I've been on many tours that offer a glass of refreshment, but none as generous and easy going as this, and the simple pizza offered was very yummy! The gregarious boat captain/guide also struck the perfect balance in making sure each of the twenty or so passengers, from youngest to oldest, were safe and happy. :-)
