Alessandra was amazing! She had a schedule conflict and worked with us to make sure we were still able to see Bellagio. She brought a folder full of maps and materials that aided her with her presentation of Lake Como. I would absolutely recommend her, and if in the area, would tour with her again. Worth every penny!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Hope, thank you so much for such a great comment! I only regret not having had more time to spend with you :-) All the best, Alessandra

Alessandra provided us with a wonderful tour of Lake Como. She is very knowledgeable about the towns on the lake. She arranged to take my husband and me on a private taxi for the day. We stopped in Varenna, Bellagio and Como (with a stop in between along the lake for a lovely lunch). Her English is very good and she let us set the pace and let her know what was and was not of interest to us. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Alessandra - thank you!

Alessandra was a joy to tour with. She is well informed and an excellent communicator. We had expressed an interest in walking from Bellagio down to the village of Pescallo - She actually previewed the trail by running it while we were eating lunch to be sure it would be ok for us.

Alessandra was a wonderful tour guide to introduce us to Como and Bellagio! Highly recommend her as she is personable, very friendly, and made a 6 hour tour fun for a 14, 11, and 9 year old!

Wonderful tour and excellent guide! She may be the best guide we have had with Tours by Locals. She was pleasant, accommodating and patient. She was a big help in answering questions before we booked. I highly recommend using her for his tour or any tour she may offer. Great personality. Thank you Alessandra! It was a wonderful day!!

We book many TBLs and this is one of our best ever. Alessandra met us at our hotel, every detail of the day was attended to, including her magic to make the sun shine! She brings history, culture and lots of local knowledge to the tour. We loved our time on the boats, the walking tours of Bellagio and city of Como, an excellent lunch and shopping. She even arranged the most memorable dinner of our trip. She is a great guide, first class and truly spectacular - we'll never forget Alessandra or Lake Como!

Alessandra was a friendly, knowledgeable guide to Como. Her sense of humor, familiarity with every nook of the city, and relaxed vibe made the tour feel like a great visit with a local friend. I was able to return to Como the next day to visit some of the shops we saw on the tour-- and I felt like I knew my way around, thanks to her guidance. Thanks, Alessandra!

Alessandra's tour was very informative and alot of fun. We could explore many of the sights and experiences and we felt free to do and see what we liked. We are a family of five and the tour was like having another member of the family showing us around beautiful Como and Bellagio.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to feel like a part of your beautiful family. Thanks again (grazie!) and enjoy Italy :-)

I had a wonderful day with Alessandra. She was a wealth of information ... the little towns, the villas around the lake, walk around Bellagio and the garden. Her "stories" were captivating. I especially liked what she shared when I inquired about island Isola Comacina and the restaurant. :) She also selected a really good restaurant and we sat outside to enjoy the sunshine and food. I really enjoyed the local fish served as a risotto. I made a great choice selecting Alessandra to be my guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Regina!!! Grazie mille and I hope the rest of your Italian adventure was... indimenticabile. Arrivederci!

We really enjoyed our private tour with Alessandra. She showed us many beautiful sights in the lovely town of Como, as well as during the enjoyable cruise on Lake Como itself. Alessandra is a charming and warm person, and our time together with her was truly fun. She even recommended an excellent fine dining restaurant for us to have lunch after our tour concluded. Thank you, Alessandra! Time well-spent!

Alessandra made our Lake Como tour great! She was very informative and fun-we learned much about the history of the area and the buildings. When she found out that the trains and Metro might be on strike, she arranged a private driver for us, who was great. The entire day was beautiful and fun! Thank you!

We throughly enjoyed our tour with Alessandra. Communication up to when we met was excellent. She spent 4 hours showing us the historical sites of Como old city and escorted us on the funicular to Brunate. Alessandra is very likeable and her English is excellent unlike our Italian :) We cannot recommend her highly enough, our tour was definitely a highlight of our time spent in Como. Grazie Allesandra!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sue and Rod, thank you so much for your kind words! I'm glad you enjoyed the tour and, as I said, it has been a pleasure to guide such interested people... even if I'm still looking for the answer to the question about the origins of Roman Catholic church, I tried to find it out but it's just so complicate.. next time I'll be able to tell you. I hope you enjoyed Bellagio, have a wonderful holiday!

We are so thankful we found Alessandra! She communicated with me months prior to our trip to come up with a detailed itinerary that would meet the needs of our large family. She gave some excellent recommendations and even helped us choose the best hotel that would accommodate our needs. Our tour with her was the highlight of our trip. Alessandra was so incredibly courteous, knowledgeable and fun. Our entire family loved Alessandra and would book her again in a heartbeat!

We are so happy we did this experience with Alessandra. We have nothing to complain and only positive feedback. Shecwas punctual, very well organized and knowledgeable. She could always answer our questions. Always happy and enthusiastic about the lake and history that she could transmit it to us. The way she talks is interesting, captivating and never boring. She is friendly and kind, never rude. Her recommendations were superb and her English was understandable. We could see her main interest was us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Martina, I'm so glad you enjoyed the experience and even the nativity scenes!! :-))
