Boat Tour Lake Como
After spending some free time visiting the town, shopping, or eating lunch, enjoy a panoramic cruise on Lake Como for one hour. This is probably the best activity that you can do on Lake Como. Your guide will show you the most beautiful towns and historic villas of Lake Como from the boat. You will stop in Torno. Its splendid position has always made Torno a favourite with tourists and holidaymakers alike, many of whom come to visit its famous villas. These include the 16th century Villa Pliniana, Villa Taverna with its magnificent gardens, and Villa Mia, owned now by the royal family of Saudi Arabia, which has seen famous guests from all over the world. Writer and poet Hermann Hesse was so taken by Torno as his boat sailed past its shores that he wrote about it in his essay ‘A Walk Around Lake Como’ (‘Spaziergang am Comer See’).
Duration: 1 hour 
Admission Ticket Not Included
Stop At:  
You will stop in Torno, a pretty lakeside village situated over the lake with a view of Moltrasio and the villas on the lake. Enjoy a short stroll through the narrow streets in the village . The lakeside Piazza Casartelli, fronted by several restaurants and the Chiesa di Santa Tecla (a baroque remake of the Romanesque original), the tiny port and shady trees complete the picture of this front-row seat on the lake.

First time to Lake Como
, Nov 2021
We really enjoyed our tour to Lake Como with Renzo. The ride from Milan to Lake Como went really fast because Renzo gave us a very good detail of the area and historical facts. We were lucky to have a beautiful sunny day. The tour of the town and cathedral was very thorough and interesting He showed us 3 places for lunch and we choose the place with the homemade pasta that the locals visit; which was very tasty. We took areal nice boat ride and visited one of the islands. I highly recommend this tour.

This was an excellent tour. Both the city of Como and the lake are beautiful. We did a walking tour of Como, then took the boat to two stops on the lake - Cernobbio and Turno. Our tour guide, Renzo, was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable about the area and its history and guided us to shopping and a wonderful place for lunch.

, Jun 2017
The Lake Como description I thought I signed up for was to see the village of Como and a romantic cruise across Lake Como. To me - and with the picture of this trip - a romantic cruise would have been on the sailboat pictured with only a few people on board. We took the ferry across the Lake to visit a villa and ferried back for a walking tour of the village of Bellagio. We really enjoyed it but I felt the information about this trip was misleading or simply incorrect. I would change the description and title of this tour. Lake Como is stunningly beautiful and the shops on Bellagio are quaint and the restaurant we lunched at superb.

We had a great time on this tour. Renzo was knowledgeable of the area. Since this was a private tour we didn't feel rushed and went by OUR pace. He also sent us to a really nice restaurant for lunch where the owner was hospitable and had great food as well. I highly recommend this tour.

I have written this review 3 times and it never seems to post, but I am trying again because we had so much fun on this tour. Let me start by saying that we are not typically tour people, we prefer to meander about, finding our way around Italy on our own. We also do not like bus rides. This was the perfect tour train and boat for us. Our guide, Renzo, made the trip wonderful! He is from Lake Como and extremely knowledgeable about the area. The hour long ride from Milan flew by as Renzo used a map to orient us and gave us an historical perspective that was fascinating. Once we arrived at Lake Como, we meandered around the piazza and streets. It was tempting to go shop at the markets, but we restrained ourselves, not wanting to carry packages all day... there are lovely streets and churches. Renzo knew something about each. He recommended a latteria that served lunch. Wow! Delicious gnocchi and lasagne for very reasonable prices! Always listen to the locals in Italy about food and where locals eat... The boat had indoor and outdoor seating, even though it was November we sat outside for part of the trip. We explored a sleepy fishing village and beautiful, mysterious Cernobbio. You can see why people escape to this area! If you book this lovely day tour, ask for Renzo. He was terrific!

Our guide, Renzo, was amazing! Being from Como, made him very knowledgeable about the area. He also recommended a great restaurant for lunch. He went above and beyond making sure my sons could see some extra sites in Milan. I would highly recommend Renzo as a tour guide.
