Violleta was super lovely and knowledgeable. She definitely knows her history and was really personable. Would 100% recommend this tour. She also gave me amazing tips on good spots to take photos and how to go on to my next stop from there….

Walking tour with Violetta

Violetta was sweet but she even admitted herself that there is not much to see for two hours on a walking tour. We recommend you walk around yourself to explore the lake town and spend money on food and wine! If you do want to spend the money on a private tour, definitely go with Violetta. She is a local and well-versed in Lake Como.

Dear Cassandra, Thank you for your review and that you did appreciate my knowledge and my commitment. I feel sorry, that a misunderstanding happened. In my opinion, Como is very interesting Roman-founded city full of history and represents an astonishing mix of architectural styles (Roman, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque and the modern Rationalist). Como's history is very intricate and difficult to grasp without an accurate explanation.

Violetta was a excellent tour guide. Only takes tours of 6 or less people, making communication personal - No headsets. Our tour was 4 people. Covered all Old City Como sites. My wife and I were very pleased.

A Very Pleasant and Informative Walk

Violeta is a great guide. She has a true love for Como in particular and Italy in general. We felt like we were walking around this beautiful town with a friend who was showing us around rather than on a tour. She has a wealth of information, she wasn't looking at her watch and we went a bit over the two hours just because she wanted to make sure we say a lot. She even pointed out where we could buy some silk goods and get some high quality gelato. I recommend any tour she runs.
