    It was a long day but we got to see three lakes and some beautiful scenery. If you have time in you holiday to devote a whole day it is a good tour.

    I don’t feel this tour was good value for money. Basically it is a 10 hr bus ride. Stopping in Lugano a waist of time. All photo opportunities of views through bus window. Villa Carlotta optional but not really worth it. Much better villas on Lake Maggoire.

    This is a wonderful day trip from Stresa. Anna,our guide, was very knowledgeable about the history of Lake Maggiore, Lake Como, Lake Lugano and the villages in-between. Lunch in Tremezzo was wonderful! I highly recommend.

    This was a very enjoyable day. We set off promptly and the day progressed seamlessly. Our tour guide Anna was excellent, very informative, she knew her history of the places we visited and shard plenty of additional information on the route we took.
    Time spent in each stop off was about right and there was no waiting for stragglers thankfully.
    Our driver was excellent, negotiating the narrow roads and oncoming challenges skillfully.
    A very enjoyable tour.

    A very good day out. The guide was friendly, professional and gave us lots of information about the regions and the places we visited. The driver expertly navigated the tight bends and narrow streets. We were given enough time at each stop. The scenery was beautiful. I had been on this excursion 35 years ago and it was interesting to see the changes in the route due to new roads and tunnels.
