25 minutes in the sun on a boat that takes you around the "peninsula" of Sirmione. The boat was very nice and comfortable, the tour was interesting and the captain was very friendly to give us various information on the various stages we traveled. I highly recommend to everyone, perfectly timed (25/30 min), very honest cost and meeting point at the beginning of the center.

Went in a small group (only 4 of us in total). Was very friendly guide giving us facts on route to the lake and also a guided tour of the area. The guide also offered to take us up to the small church and was friendly talking to us all around the areas and telling us of his travels

You can tell Orlando and his crew love their job. The boat trip is highly recommended, but you should note that it can get quite chilly on the ship in spring.

The guide was knowledgeable and welcoming. Great view of the entire Sirmione coast. Incredible quality price ratio.

Amazing, guide was good fun and translated everything into English
