What people are saying about Sirmione

Our trip was fabulous!!! Our boat captain was very entertaining and made the trip so much more enjoyable than I expected. He entertained us until the very minute we got off the boat. The wine tasting was great. We had three generous samples of wine and some light snacks that were more than enough. Stopping to swim was refreshing considering it was quite warm the day we went. When we got on the boat at the beginning of the trip, we were all strangers, but at the end, we parted as friends.

It was a very nice, entertaining and informative tour, with a great guide who explained a lot about the region and the area. The wine tasting took place in a very nice atmosphere and the side dishes served were also very tasty. A white wine, a rose and a red wine from the region were tasted.

Really nice trip. Nice guide, just fun on the lake. Prepare for a brisk ride with a few snacks and a wine tasting as a stopover. If you like to go a little faster boat it is highly recommended.

A very nice 4-hour boat tour with a very friendly captain, the wine tasting in Bardolino with a snack can only be recommended. Was a very successful afternoon. Gladly again !

A great experience with a great tour guide (captain)! The wine tasting in Bardolino, which was also included, was of course also a highlight. Highly recommended!
