Renzo was a great guide to the history and current life in Lake Como. He met our group promptly at the designated spot. Reminded us about wearing masks for the train ride from Milan to Como. So much historical material about building styles, church designs, piazzas and history of the area was so informative, it was a living history lesson. Great!

We had a great experience sailing with Capt. Mauro and Isabella. The boat was great and the attitude and experience were top notch. We had a great evening and would highly recommend this activity!

We did this for our honeymoon and it was the highlight of our trip. The other passengers canceled, so we were able to go just the two of us and even take the wheel to sail! Unforgettable day

We had great time!!! Very attentive crue. It was a beautiful evening.

We had a great day on the sailing boat with our skipper Giuseppe!
