Luca is definitely the reason why Taxi Boat Varenna is an exceptional choice for cruising around Lake Como. His cruises normally start off at Varenna. However, you may request him to start off and end elsewhere. In our case we started and ended in Bellagio....More

Luca was responsive from day one of my inquiry. Was accommodating and helpful. Very punctual. We had an individual tour for four people and all had a great time!

We'd booked this for our last day and really enjoyed whizzing off across the lake in such a comfortable boat. There were 11 passengers, the boat would take 12, so we had a bit of extra room to stretch our legs. Luca was very entertaining...More

We took the train in from Milan and did the one hour boat tour. The boat was full but everyone still had a great time and there was plenty of room. Great guide/driver. Highly recommend!

In the winter from half November to Febrary I will close. But on the lake the temperature usually it is very low and the navigation is not amazing. Regards Luca

Our 2.5 hr (really lasted about 3hrs) with Taxi Boat Varenna was 55 euro pp. Outstanding! A private option should run about 30 euro per hr pp. For the central lake villages, an unlimited all day ferry pass is 15 euro. All... More
