This boat tour is highly recommended! It's especially fun with the captain "Giggi". There is enough drinking water on the boat and "Giggi" also prepares a small pasta meal. It is something different to look at the places on Lake Garda from the water. The Isola Bella was particularly beautiful, Sirmione was also great, but a total rip-off. We had to pay 13 euros for 2 beers.

Beautiful, especially this calm. This is about the experience of sailing. Absolutely successful, only as a tip we had almost 36 degrees and the afternoon tour. Additional water is recommended.

Very nice sailing boat trip with a short swim in the lake. Drinks were given a little very tightly. 1/2 glass of wine and a maximum of 1 bottle of water per 2 people is definitely not enough!

Very enjoyable tour and nice relief from the July heat. Kids loved the jump in the lake from the gangplank!

A truly enjoyable experience! We loved getting to tour around the lake and our guide was fabulous.
