    My husband and I took this tour on Monday the 5th August and we were not disappointed. We traveled in a very comfortable Air conditioned coach all perhaps 13 of us. Our tour guide Stephano (I think) was very informative and knowledgeable. The highlight for us was definitely Isola Bella, the gardens so very beautiful. In my opinion more so, than Monet's gardens in Giverny of which we also saw with Viator 2 years ago. If you love gardens, the sea air, little boat trips and pretty island villages then this is the tour for you. We absolutely loved it!

    Organizzazine perfetta con partenza da Bergamo e ritrovo a Milano poi, una volta riempito il bus, partenza. Tutto ma tutto perfetto: tempi, informazioni, suggerimenti e indicazioni, possibilità di prenotare il ristorante e menù, percorso concentrato ma in maniera intelligente, quindi accontentare ogni tipo di necessità

    This day trip from Milan was a great way to spend the afternoon in northern Italy. The bus ride was comfortable and the boat ride was a lot of fun. We visited the palace and small fishing village and enjoyed beautiful views from the lake. We also spent some time in Stresa and enjoyed a drink in the shade at one of the local restaurants. Our tour guide Carlo was outstanding and was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. He was a great tour guide and did a great job answering our questions. I would highly recommend this tour. Great value for your money.

    Una excursión de medio día para ver el Lago Maggiore. Bien coordinada y organizada. Como único punto de mejora, igual estaría bien una visita a Stresa con más tiempo.

    Extremely surprised by the history and landscape which are not, quite frankly, enough advertised. Definitely worth few days to visit it.

    We had a wonderful time on our trip to Lake Maggiore and Isola Bella Lake Maggiore is beautiful and the boat ride was wonderful. My favorite part of the trip was to see Isola Bella and take a tour of the beautiful Borromean Palace and gardens. It was amazing. I would like to go back some day to see the palace and the gardens. We stopped on Isola Pescatori for a short time. The tour from Milan was only for a half day. Our tour guide said that it used to be a whole day tour. I wish we could have spent more time on Isola Bella and Isola Pescatori.
