We were scheduled for this tour on Saturday. We met at the appointed place and had to then walk a fair distance to where the bus would pick us up. At that point the bus driver asked the tour guide if everyone had their passport. This was the 1st time a passport was mentioned. One of our party did not carry it with him, as well as a few others on the tour. It was then too late to go back to get it from the hotel. Luckily we had an additional day in Como and the tour company rescheduled us for the following day. We met the next morning, passports in hand. One of our party asked a couple if they had their passport, they did not, so went back to their hotel to get it. Never did the tour guide say anything about the passport. We all walked again to the bus meeting sight. Again the driver asked the tour guide if everyone had passports. 2 travelers did not. They were not allowed to board the bus. Seeing this happen 2 days in a row, we cannot understand why it is not stated on the web sight, or confirmed by the tour guide at the meeting place, instead of waiting until we have walked quite a distance to the bus. By then there is no time to go back for the passport. Our guide, Paula, was great. Lugano was beautiful. But if you are not into shopping there is not much else to do. Bellagio was so crowded. Wall to wall people. Restaurants were full, sidewalks packed. Maybe unusual for this time of year? Can’t blame the tour for that. We had a meeting time to take the ferry back to Como. The que was very long and people were pushing and crowding to make sure to board the ferry. Actually very scary. Our tour guide said this was unusual and was concerned about getting all of us onboard. I honestly cannot recommend this tour. It was a whole day and we really didn’t do much. Maybe Bellagio on another day would be wonderful, but maybe take the ferry from Como instead.

The tour was nice but didn’t provide s lot of information - it was just really transportion from one area to the next, with free time at each stop.

booked this for myself and 2 friends who were staying in como. we read plenty of positive reviews and were super excited. on the day of the tour, it got pushed back 1 hour without any explanation. everyone was waiting around, and there was little direction or information. eventually, someone came around with a clipboard (our tour guide, who never introduced herself) and she lead a bunch of us down the street to a square where we were told that we had 20 minutes to 'get coffee' and at this point, we're already an hour behind on our tour. it was then mentioned to us, that something happened to the tour guide, and we were going to be joining another tour on their bus. after 20 minutes, we walked even further to a bus, where we were handed radios. the other tour group who we were merging with seemed very confused as to why we were on their bus, and it seemed like they were not given a head's up. while driving from Como to Lugano, we were given little information about either of the places. the drive and the trip was easy and beautiful, though. after Lugano, we got back on the bus and were to take a ferry to Bellagio. everyone was standing around, had no idea what was going on, and our tour guide was going around, group by group asking if we were confused (we all were) and she was not using the radios. again, we were given little direction on the ferry, in Bellagio, with no information on Bellagio, where to go, or what to do. the only things she was pointing out was where customs was and how the town had a lot of busses. literally useless information. the entire group was constantly confused and surprised that she was this bad at giving a tour. the boat cruise was beautiful, but again little to no information was given over the radio. the tour guide left with the original group half way through the cruise, didn't collect our radios, and didn't even say goodbye. we would have been better off doing this excursion ourselves, but it was nice to have tickets arranged for everything. overall, really disappointing and i would not recommend. it felt like someone was sick and they called in this guide as a last resort.

The places we visited were beautiful The only downside was having to walk from the meeting point to get on the bus I am sure the bus could have come to the meeting point as some people even walked past there hotel to catch the bus
