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 with his commentary - although he spoke very fast and we missed some of his jokes. We hadn't realised though that the visit to Villa Balbianello would take quite so long and we had been hoping for more time on the boat. The visit to the villa was very interesting though. Definitely worth the money though, especially if you are going to visit the Villa anyway.

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!

This tour was great fun. First you are in about a 10 passenger boat. The young man who was our guide was very personable and entertaining and played Pavarotti while we cruised the Lake. Absolutely wonderful. Our tour included a stop at the Villa Del Balbianello which was stunning. A very enjoyable afternoon!

Taxi Boat Varenna were so helpful and friendly from the very beginning when I was looking at booking a boat tour in Lake Como. Our trip to Lake Como was a 60th Birthday Present for my mums 60th birthday and I wanted to book a tour/activity to add something even more special to the weekend and Taxi Boat Varenna were amazing. From my first email to them to the moment we left the boat they couldn't have been more helpful. Our guide Luca was very friendly and so informative and knowledgeable. He taught us so much about each town around the Lake and showed us so much too, he had a great sense of humour as well. Our two hour tour flew by and he even dropped us back off at Mennagio at our request which was slightly out of his way but he was happy to do so. All in all a great tour and made our weekend in Lake Como even more special. I would highly recommend Taxi Boat Varenna and look forward to going on another of their tours in the future.

My girlfriend and I took an early morning, private tour of Lake Como from Varenna. It was beautiful and relaxing. It was just the two of us which made the entire experience even more special. Our guide/captain was very punctual and professional. He picked up up at the dock of our hotel, the Royal Victoria. I would definitely recommend this tour and the tour company.
