The comfort of a private boat to discover the lake

The best way to enjoy Lago Maggiore is hiring a boat with driver and cruise. . . wherever you wish!
You can stop in the charming towns of Cannero or Cannobio. . .
. . . Have lunch in one of the typical restaurants by the lake. . .
Or why don't stopping and visiting the breath-taking monastery of Santa Caterina del Sasso?
Or heading south to Arona and Angera?
One more idea: a romantic boat cruise to enjoy the colours of sunset on the lake. . .
***Customize - I can create a customized tour for you in case you have special requests or if you are more than 6 people.

A Recent Review of this tour

From the moment we touched base with Daniela, everything went smoothly. Her tour was wonderful; so was she. She is a lovely person with good command of the English language and a knowledge AND love of the area which she shared enthusiastically. Clearly, she enjoys what she does. We were lucky to have her and will always think to contact "Tours by Locals" when next we travel.
