Once in a lifetime opportunity!!
Sep 2021
Once in a life opportunity! I can not thank Taxi Boat Varenna enough for their professional service. I took my 93 year old grandmother on this trip and we were blown away. We had Luca as our captain (A professional, well informed captain that provided a truly wonderful experience as we guided through our tour. He was prompt and everything was first class. 100% would recommend this company to anyone and can not wait to be back again. Thanks so much for everything! We will not forget this experience!

A MUST DO ON LAKE COMO!
Sep 2021
We are so thrilled with our experience taking the 5 hour boat tour with Taxi Boat Varenna. We were immediately surprised that within the first week of booking our tour, Luca reached out to us offering an extra hour to our tour for free! This is the absolute best way to see and learn about many of the different towns on Lake Como. We were able to 'choose our own adventure' as soon as we got on the beautiful boat. We chose which route we wanted to take, which towns we wanted to stop at and our knowledgable guide gave us suggestions along the way.

If you are visiting the Lake Como area, we highly recommend using Taxi Boat Varenna. You'll be happy you did!

A must do for Como!
Aug 2021 • Couples
We used Taxi Boat Varenna during our stay in Lake Como, and were very pleased with the experience. We chose this company because we were staying in Varenna, but I was so impressed with the prompt communication.

We first took a sunset cruise with prosecco as a pre-dinner treat, and it was beyond fantastic. The lake was not busy with boats, and there is a magic to the sunset. I believe our captain was Matthias, who gave us a great insight into the lake’s different towns and villas.

We enjoyed the sunset cruise so much, we booked a half day tour the next day with Luca. Luca took us to see the waterfall at Nesso, which was very cool as was not on the itinerary. He didn’t want us to repeat the same places we saw on the sunset cruise. We then visited Villa Carlotta and Villa del Balbianello, and Luca then dropped us in Bellagio for a late lunch. Very nice guy, and always quick and prompt. His boat is very very well kept. And he takes great photos as well! Highly recommend Luca and Taxi Boat Varenna. It is not an inexpensive experience, but Luca also has shared day tours and his boat is large enough for several couples. We took the public ferry other days around, but I think if you can swing it, the private boat tour is the very best way to experience Como. A must at least once during stay.

Great boat tour on Lake Como
Aug 2021 • Couples
We would highly recommend using this company for boat tours! Luca was very friendly and gave helpful commentary during the tour. We did the one hour boat tour and would advise doing a longer tour if you’re able to since it’s very enjoyable.

Super 2-1/2hr Tour
Aug 2021 • Couples
We chose the 2-1/2hr tour with the stop off and tour of Villa del Balbianello. The boat was a beautiful Venetian motor cruiser. It is equipped with charging ports for you phone. The tour and commentary by Skipper Luca was excellent and the tour the Villa was excellent, the tour was in English and we got to see the lovely gardens and detailed tour of inside the Villa which was amazing. Views and gardens are stunning and this is a place regularly rented for wedding receptions. At €70 well worth the money.

Unforgettable trip with a great captain
Aug 2021 • Family
We have two young kids and spend 2H with Luca and his boat. The experience was unforgettable. Lucas adjusted to our needs and the entire family enjoy the trip on his beautiful boat. We enjoyed his flexibility, fun explanations and his calm. A memory we will not forget.

Best seen from the water
Jul 2021
Undoubtedly, one of the best ways to see lake Como is from the water and though I don't recommend Varenna on a weekend, I recommend the taxi boat tour any day of the week - weather permitting. Luca has always been a professional, very kind and clearly enjoys his work. My experience with their services has always been exemplary. Recently I met their new colleague who had us laughing even as the water was rough and on a hot day, the free shower was actually welcome! We were dry and refreshed by the time we docked thanks to the warm sun and the breeze through our hair as we crossed the lake. However, don't forget sunblock because two hours on the lake can give you raccoon eyes if you don't stay in the cabin. The prosecco service is a nice touch if you want to treat yourself, and wear your deck shoes because heels will damage the wood flooring of these beautiful classic boats. Grazie Luca, tornero'!

Boat tour of Lake Como
Sep 2019
Really enjoyed this two hour tour around Lake Como. Only wish was that we had the open air boat instead of the enclosed one, just because it was a beautiful day.

Very enjoyable
Oct 2019
We booked this boat tour especially because it included a tour of Balbaniello; however a large downed tree closed that site. Taxi-Boat then notified us by email that they would substitute with a tour of Villa Carlotta house and gardens, which was very nice, and also reduced the tour cost. Our booking was made a couple of months out because of our limited time in Varenna, so it was lucky that the rain cleared out the night before our tour. Luca was charming and knowledgeable, a good hand with the ropes when docking our clean and comfortable boat.
