My partner and I were in lake Garda for 3 nights and decided quite last minute we wanted to try and rent a boat for the day to see more of the lake. It was the best decision we made! After some google searching we found Bertoldi boats and sent them a WhatsApp late the night before and they replied first thing the next morning with their prices and availability. They then called us to arrange the time and where they were based. I would say not to leave it as last minute as us, try and book in advance if you can!

The staff were very friendly and helpful, showed us a map of the lake and different routes you can go although it really is up to you. They recommended where the best place is to stop and swim, and advised a restaurant where you anchor your boat and they come and collect you and take you to the restaurant for lunch.

We were out from about 10:30/11 until 6/6:30 and it was so beautiful, even if you’re not comfortable renting a boat and would prefer a guided tour I would definitely recommend it, it’s the best way to see the lake!

We chose to pay for the day rate and refill the petrol tank at the end, so they showed us where the gas station was and how to do it and showed us how to drive the boat which was very simple and easy to do

For reference, we used about a quarter of a tank which was €53.00, and paid €220 for the whole day with the boat so a total of €273 for the whole day between 2 of us was a great deal and the views really were priceless.

The boat was modern and we felt very safe, they showed us where the life jackets were kept and all the important documents and safety kit.

Can’t recommend this company enough, we would definitely use them again.

Thanks for a fantastic day!

We booked by emailing; michela@bertoldiboats.com. We were collected from outside our beautiful hotel Hotel Sirmione. We took the boat trip to Rocca Di Manerba, where we saw Sirmione, then the Rocca. On the way back we saw the Thermal Spring, and the gorgeous Castle which looked beautiful from the Lake. Giacomo Bertoldi was fantastic, great company, excellent experience and full of interesting facts and information making our boat trip excellent. I would highly recommend booking in advance of your arrival as they get very busy during the Summer months. You won’t be disappointed at all, we just wished we had more time so we could explore more of Lake Garda as it’s stunning. Thank you for a memorable experience 😄😄

We had never been to Sirmione so I checked to see what interesting things we could, it was closed season. The lake tour by boat was one of the more interesting and we really looked forward to the views. The main full lake tour is seasonal which was disappointing but we were walking toward the castle and saw this signs for a 25 min tour around north Sirmione, it only cost €10 each. It was the best thing we did that day and I thoroughly recommend it, we were with Bertoldi boats and the driver stopped at intervals and explained the sites, excellent. 5 days later we were still talking about it and have suggested to friends that they should do it too. Best value for money too, however, it might cost a little more in full season but it’s worth it. The lake is just beautiful, we’ve been to Como but preferred Garda.

We did the half day private tour and it was absolutely wonderful! The lake is just gorgeous and our tour guide Davide was the perfect host - so friendly and informative. The booking procedure was really easy too - I booked from England and the team at Bertoldi Boats were very fast in replying to emails and assisting with any questions I had. We would definitely recommend Bertoldi Boats and we hope to redo it all again on our next visit to Lake Garda!

We were staying a few days in Sirmione as part of our holiday. We took a walk to the old town and passed a stall selling boat trips. It was very pleasantly explained , only a short trip of 25 mins but taking in the best sights of the old town area, including Maria Callas' house, the old Roman pavilion and the wonderful mediaeval castle. The price was only 10 Euros per adult so was very good value. Our tour guide and boat Captain, Fabian Senfter was very nice indeed and took great care to explain to us the history of everything we saw - in detail. In fact we saw another boat and they really told their passengers very little so we had an excellent guide. The whole trip was a delight and accompanied by some delightful Italian opera music. The Perfect Italian Experience!

Our family of eight adults had an amazing day boating and swimming on Lake Garda! Beautiful scenery, fun and relaxing but, most importantly, it was our captain, Damiano, who made sure our day was special. This was our third time booking a private boat tour with Damiano. Always professional, informative and fun, he asks for our input on the itinerary and also arranges amazing lunch stops. He strikes a perfect balance between providing information about key locations on the lake and interacting with us, and letting us just enjoy ourselves on this beautiful lake. We highly recommend him as a captain!

Hired a private motor boat at very short notice through this company. Email correspondence was brilliant, and meeting instructions very clear. On the day we were met by a representative who showed us the boat and how to drive etc, gave us a great map and explained all the dangers with rocks etc. Although it was very misty on the day, they were very flexible and offered for us to shorten our time if we wanted, and come back whenever. We ended up coming in slightly early and they even gave us a little discount which we didn’t ask for. No deposit was required and they were super clear on how to avoid damage etc.
Would highly recommend and will be using them again.

Had a great boat ride experience with our boat guide Fabian Senfter who made our experience that much more enjoyable 🙌🏻. We had an amazing time exploring the lake with some great music and got some amazing pictures too (and some with the captain's cap! ). Overall would recommend 100% for an unforgettable Sirmione experience.

Our party of four reserved a private half day boat tour and we can’t speak highly enough about how much we enjoyed it! The beauty of the lake speaks for itself but Damiano was the perfect captain…professional, knowledgeable and fun with the right balance of providing us information on the various sites while also letting us just relax and enjoy our time. He dropped us off for lunch at a very pretty location with a wonderful casual restaurant. We all hope to return to Lake Garda and we will definitely hire Damiano again! Thank you again!

We did a late afternoon private tour of 2 hours along the southern part of the Garda lake. Captain Damiano was friendly and explained a lot. Beautiful views on nature and architecture that you won't see from ashore. It was an absolute highlight of our stay in Sirmione.
