Luca and Janine are amazing. They have quite the business going and the best in Bellagio. This is not a taxi ride, it is a cruise along the lake in a beautiful boat with a handsome Italian Captain. My husband and I, along with our teenage daughters felt like we were on the set of a movie. It is the only way to see the lake. Luca takes a lot of pride in his tours and his boat, which is impeccably clean. He takes the time to explain the different villas along the shore line. He shares his passion of Lake Como and its surrounding areas. Be sure to make a reservation as it can get quite busy. Janine is great at getting back to you and is very helpful with tips of all the do's and dont's of the area. She is a great resource and will do anything for you. We did the Villa Balbianello tour and it was out of this world. It exceeded our expectations.

Do this! The kind couple who own this business are very helpful through email correspondence prior to your arrival. They speak perfect English. This was a painless experience from booking through email to finding the correct boat launch. The sunset ride was absolutely gorgeous and Luca is a fantastic host. The boat is beautiful and it was just a perfect ride before dinner! I can't count the number of times I've spent money on "tours" that were just subpar- This is not one of them- Money well spent! And, thank you Luca for the fantastic restaurant suggestion- It was our best meal there! Many thanks to Janine and Luca!

After having checked out all the rides around the lake from Bellagio we decided to use Bellagio Water Taxis. Janine was so enthusiastic and helpful with not only their tour but also advice on value things to do around Bellagio including tips on how to get around the lake and back to Como. The tour was very informative. Included in the cruise was a guided tour of a villa on the other side of the lake - well worth it. Their boats are in beautiful condition - well cared for and loved. Would highly recommend this to anyone.

This is much more than a water taxi- much more like a personal cruise boat. The sunset cruise was wonderful going past all the villas in central Lake Como. Luca has a magnificent boat, speaks excellent English with an great commentary and his wife Janine is a bubbly Aussie girl who made us feel special! We would recommend this to all.

Our feet had only just touched the ground at Bellagio and on check in at the gorgeous Hotel Metropole, our lovely host advised she had an important message from Jennine from Bellagio Water taxis about our pre-dinner cruise...Jennine was most concerned that we had received her email to advise that the tour would start at 5pm and not 5.30pm, so she had left a written MSG for us at our hotel. We then meandered to their private pier where we received a very warm welcome from Jennine. She then walked us over to their beautiful gleaming timber boat where we boarded and met her husband Luca, our delightful character of a captain! Luca cruised us around to the magnificent, jaw-dropping sites, stopping to give us the details and stories! The Prosecco (champagne) was generous and flowing and the boat is exceptionally beautiful and the seating comfortable - there were 12 of us in total - and a delightful bunch of people! Fabulous photo opportunities and breath taking scenery. The one hour tour was a perfect taste-test for us on our first afternoon. Thank you Luca and Jennie - the communications were great and the greeting was warm and the tour buonissimo!!! Anna and Mark (Brisbane, Australia)
