We had good and slightly not so good experience. In relation to 'not so good' I think it fair to say it was just one of those things. Previous customers got lost and delayed so it's just life. In relation to positives. The staff were...More

Still cannot believe my partner and I (particularly me) got let loose with a proper, petrol-fuelled boat! We took it round Sirmione (got a good view of the ruins) and then back to Desenzano where we had hired it from. It was an amazing experience....More

Highly recommend renting a boat and taking it out to the lake. First time I have ever done this and it was great fun. No license needed, and boat easy to operate. Boat even had a bit of power! I think I paid EUR 120.00...More

So glad we hired a boat to see the lake more extensively. The process of booking with this company was so easy and the handover was made at our hotel in sirmione. We chose the gaia 19 for 2 hours in the morning which was...More
