      An Excellent Experience!
      My husband and I took a tour today with Giulia. We highly recommend her!! She was prompt, professional, able to communicate easily in English, pleasant to be with and very knowledgable and able to answer our questions.

      Superb day out!
      The visit was fantastic as we also bought tickets for the Palaces and a gardens. The boat trips were fun and the skippers gave guidance in Italian and English. Although I would not class this as a private tour guide it was sufficient for us. It was a shame that the agents at the ticket office were not interested in helping us and kept pointing us to their colleagues. They were only interested in new sales, not pre booked tickets. This should be resolved with the ticket office.

      Giulia Ferrari is an awesome tour guide for Orta San Giulio
      We took a 3 hour tour with Giulia Ferrari and she is awesome! Giulia knows all the history of San Giulio including the chapels honoring St. Francis of Assisi. We also took a boat with her to the island of San Giulio to tour the church and the grounds of the convent there. We stopped for cappuccino at the cafe on the island and it was quaint with a gorgeous view. Giulia is very knowledgeable about the local area and gave reliable recommendations for good quality hotels, restaurants, and shopping in the region. She is a pleasure to talk to, speaks English very well, and we highly recommend her!

      Fabulous
      We really enjoyed our tour. It was great. We were in Stresa so the boat ride was very short. I would have liked to see more of the lake

      A delight
      Gulia Ferrari was fantastic. She met us at our hotel and arranged for a private boat to bring us to each of the islands. Due to the heat, and the private transportation, we could adapt our tour accordingly. Gulia is very knowledgeable regarding the history, the plants and stories about each location. She was very good at "reading" the group, to know the pace and interests. She wasn't one of those guides who needs to fill every second with talking. We had time to just quietly enjoy the spectacular surroundings. Highly recommend Gulia.

      Immaculate gardens
      What a stunning garden to visit! We have visited a lot of gardens, but this is one of the best. We arrived by ferry from Stresa and the garden entrance is directly above the ferry terminal. Whilst we visited the dahlias were in bloom, all 300 of them! The greenhouse has Amazonian water lilies which were in flower. Behind the pond is a vertical wall of plants of all kinds. Further into the gardens there is a formal pond area which is planted with colourful bedding plants. There is also a cactus house and relaxation garden. The cafe is situated on the way in and has a good range of drinks and snacks. We spent nearly 3 hours enjoying the plants and lake views. Well worth the entrance fee

      Informative tour with excellent guide
      My wife and I were visiting Lake Maggiore for the first time and, at our travel agent's recommendation, we took an all day tour of the three principal Borromean Islands, Isola Bella, Isola dei Pescatori and Isola Madre. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, very personable, and made us feel very comfortable throughout the day. She had already arranged the private boat which took us to each of the islands and the timing for the entire day was like clockwork, without much idle time. We had plenty of time for lunch (there are dozens of restaurant options on Isola dei Pescatori) and for shopping without any of the "what are we sitting here waiting around for?" moments. Isola Bella and Isola Madre each has a beautiful palace to visit, with artwork, interior design, architecture and fabulous gardens to explore and admire. In contrast, Isola dei Pescatori provides a glimpse of the simple life of the ordinary fishermen who inhabited it and gave it its name. We recommend this tour for anyone who hasn't already visited the Borromean Islands.

    Ciao! Ringrazio Giulia e la sua collega Elena...semplicemente meravigliose! Gentili, super disponibili molto interessate veramente alla "persona", ti mettono a tuo agio e ti aiutano per qualsiasi dubbio legato al viaggio. Molto preparate e simpatiche.
    Il tempo è volato.
    Tornassi indietro chiederei con loro la giornata intera.
    La spiegazione di una guida da veramente un senso alla visita di questi luoghi meravigliosi.
    Dovrebbe essere d'obbligo prendere una guida...quindi chiamate loro! Grazie per tutto ciao Giulia e ciao Elena.
