      A great way to explore Lake Como
      The trip from Milan to Lake Como and its villages was an unforgettable experience, all thanks to Luca! His warmth and friendliness made the tour truly special. From sharing fascinating insights into the region's history and culture to indulging in authentic local dishes, every moment was a delight. ! Luca ensured a seamless experience but for first timers arriving early is advisable as navigation in the station can be tricky. Also, it is advisable to have breakfast beforehand and bring some water with you especially on warmer days. The trip offers excellent value for money with a duration that is just right, allowing us to soak in the sights without feeling rushed. Overall, this was an exceptional experience and we highly recommend it!

      Amazing day!!
      The train ride was something my sister had told me about while she was studying abroad in Europe. I am a person. That loves to experience new things and being from Colorado i have always wanted to visit the Swiss alps to see how they compare to our beautiful Rocky Mountains, as our Southern mountains are always considered to be the Swiss alps of America. The trip did not disappoint. It was along day but well worth it and absolutely beautiful from start to finish. Our tour guide, Silvia who is from Leppo, Italy, the first stop to get into a tour bus on the journey to the train. She was fantastic and felt like a friend at the end of the trip. If you have any reservations of doing the trip, do it! My wife did not want to join me but ended up having a wonderful time throughout the day! Highly recommend!

      Wonderful day around the lake
      Luca and Silvia were wonderful hosts. We had a great day seeing Varenna and Menaggio. We made a special request to go for a hike and they took us to Val di Mello which had fantastic glaciers and hiking trails. Thank you for a truly unforgettable day during our short trip to Milan. Thanks for making a special hiking trip just for us!

      The best tour of lake como and the region!
      Our experience with Paola as our guide was simply outstanding! With her local expertise, she showed us hidden gems we would've missed otherwise. The tour logistics were smooth, with clear directions to the meeting point provided upfront. We started with a lovely train ride, setting the tone for the day. Our driver then took us to explore Lake Como's wonders. Throughout the day, we enjoyed breathtaking views and explored a medieval castle. A relaxing ferry ride gave us a new perspective of the lake. Lunch at a local spot was a highlight, with delicious regional dishes. After, we had a nice walk arund the city. We visited local farmer and had a wine and food tasting. Also Paola took us to an amazing shop with hidden wine and cheese basements. Big thanks to Paola and our driver for making our day memorable. Highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Lake Como!

      Incredible
      Wonderful tour of Lake Como. We weren’t expecting it to be this good! Got the train there and meet our guide, Sylvia, on the train. She was brilliant! She lives there so has a great deal of knowledge. Met our driver, Fabio, at the station. Again, he lives in the area so knows the roads very well. Got taken on a little tour of the area and up to a castle to take in some amazing views. Then on to a ferry to cross over the lake and driven to a local restaurant. One of those places the locals use but the tourists won’t get to. The views were amazing. Photos never do it justice. We made our way to a very old shop (family business for four generations) where they have wine cellars and age cheese and many other bits. That was really interesting. Good opportunity to get some gifts for people back home. There’s more to the day than you would believe. Just a really enjoyable day tour, really well put together by Luca. He was wonderful at helping us and getting us sorted out. Thoroughly recommend using this team. It’s five star.

      Magnificent scenic tour
      I highly recommend Luca and our guide, Alice! Even though the Bernina Express was closed due to a rock slide on the tracks, we had an amazing day and didn’t miss a thing! We drove through the pass and were able to stop in Lake Como and St. Moritz as well as a few other picturesque towns along the way, visiting a winery, a great little restaurant, and a waterfall . I’m so glad we chose to continue with the trip!

      Great tour!
      We had a great time with Alice! Wish we could have spent more time around lake como instead of the alps part of the trip. It is a long day but worth it!

      10 out of 10
      This tour was definitely a highlight of our trip. We packed a lot into one day, but it was worth it. We loved how someone was there to meet our guide us every step of the way, including the private coach. Once we got into the Swiss Alps on the train, it was a completely breath taking experience. The weather was perfect in March so we got to put the windows down and take photos or videos through the mountains. A pro and con of visiting in March is that not all of the shops and restaurants are open in Lake Como but that made it way easier to walk around. Sounds like the summer would be way too crowded for our liking. So overall it was a perfect tour and money well spent! Our tour guide Ilaria was super nice too and answered all of our questions. We also loved the stop in an old general store to see and taste the cheese they’ve been making for hundreds of years. All of the lunch spots were wonderful too. We really enjoyed having hot chocolate with cream in Switzerland. Highly recommend this tour to others.

      Best Trip Ever
      Our guide, Luca, was hands-down 5-stars! He would go the extra mile to make sure everything was smooth and enjoyable for us. He would even play old Italian songs reminiscing the times of our generation during longer drives. We were guided to our train from Milan. Lake Como was absolutely beautiful and romantic. Our Bernina train ride to St Moritz was truly breath-taking. Luca even highlighted key spots and estimated timings on the train ride for us to obtain highlight scenic views. Overall, we appreciated the tour pace, it's great value and fostered friendship with Luca made this tour a true 5-star trip! Thank you, Luca, for giving us an excellent and most worthy experience.

      Fantastic Milan Bernina Train tour with Luca
      An excellent tour, highly recommended. Joined this tour with 5 friends and we all enjoyed it. We were greeted by Chelsea at the Central Station, a nice and joyful girl. She boarded the train with our group of 13 in total. She ensured we knew which station to get off before leaving us. We were then greeted by Giulia at the Lecco station and boarded on a modern and comfortable minibus. The highlight of the tour definitely was the Bernina train ride. Because of the low season, we were lucky enough to have the whole carriage by our group. Giulia told us beforehand when the best photo scenes coming up, so we were busy opening windows, jumping from one side to the other; that was part of the fun. After the train ride, we were picked up by the minibus. I have to highly praised the driver (sorry forgotten his name) who drove us safely from the mountain on that sharp bendy road down to St Moritz. Giulia is a cheerful and sincere girl and answered all our questions during the tour. Our train back from Lecco to Milan was cancelled, Giulia waited with us and make sure we got on to the right train. We had a fantastic and very memorable day and once again thank you Luca, Chelsea, Giulia and the driver. Definitely money well spent, for a little bit extra - we had a small group with excellent service, everything taken care of the minute from the meeting point and avoided the 3+ hours coach journey with a big group.

      Magic Experience!
      Beautiful tour that will take you a whole day but will leave you speechless. Luca and the other staff guides are competent, friendly and will know how to arouse your interest, by letting you live a unique experience! I made this tour about a month ago, when the Alps were covered in snow. The first stop of the tour took place in Varenna with a quick walk along the lake listening to anecdotes and the history of the place. Once in Valtellina, we stopped in a very nice cellar to taste the ‘Sforzato’ wine and other typical Valtellinese wines. Then we stopped in Tirano for the lunch on our own. Here in Tirano started the Bernina Express train experience. It was magic !!! This panoramic train crosses the Alps and rolls over the 65-metre-high Landwasser Viaduct, the signature structure of the Rhaetian Railway and the UNESCO World Heritage site. The train arrives in St. Moritz where Luca lives you free time at leisure to explore further and have a snack with typical swiss specialties, especially the famous chocolate. Finally we drove back to Milan by way of another beautiful Swiss valley (the Maloja Pass). Everything was great !!!

      A memorable Bernina Scenic Train from Milan to Swiss Alps.
      Falling in love with the journey, not just the destination. Perfect choice, perfect weather, and of course perfect tour, all is great! Thanks to Luca and Silvia, you're both so nice. It was an incredible trip. We do really enjoy the tour. The best part of the trip was how exciting it was to see a snow here and there and got a chance to feel how a private tour was, especially just for the two of us (without any cancellation). We have lovely memories of this trip because Swiss Alps. was so beautiful.

    A wonderful and memorable day was had with Luca! My fiancé and I had participated on this tour on Jul 31, 2023, the day exceeded our expectations. We took in the views of Lake Como, saw sone castles, visited some towns off the beaten track, had a delightful lunch and went to a vineyard. Luca is knowledgeable and informative. We truly enjoyed our day with him and would highly recommend this tour. It is berry organized with lots to see. You won’t be disappointed!

    Luca our guide was wonderful. Extremely professional, friendly and informative. We were taken to many local areas including the best grocery shop Ever!!! Then onto a local Trattoria to experience the most delicious lunch - so much food - this trip is a great way to get out of the busy tourist areas and to see where and how the locals live.

    Luca handled every detail to make our visit memorable! He met us at the train station and quickly unified out two groups (party of 5) so that we all felt comfortable. He immediately took us to the water and explained the region. We visited small, beautiful villages along the lake. Luca is knowledgeable of the area and knew when to educate the group and when to lighten the experience with a silly joke. He took us to a small cooperative winery in the mountains that was a special, local experience. I highly recommend Luca for his knowledge of the area and ease with people!
