Aug 2020 • Couples
Breathtaking Mountain Ranges, Glaziers & Lakes are a plenty. Simply Stunning & Beautiful Tour. This tour should be at the top of everybody’s list it’s simply the best experience you’ll ever have. Luca is an exceptional guide in every possible way. He goes out of his way to give you the best experience possible, which we were very grateful for. If you want to see a truly authentic & immensely beautiful part of Italy & the border into Switzerland then book this tour. It was worth every penny...you won’t be disappointed.

Worth Every Penny
I journeyed with my mother and sister for my mother’s 70th birthday present. Ida was our guide and did a wonderful job getting us to and from each amazing place. The two villages Varenna and Morbegno were picturesque and the shop in Morbegno is as great as everyone else is saying. The Bernina Express is absolutely stunning with the views. This is an ambitious tour and there is a lot of miles covered but plenty of time to rest if needed while being driven especially later in the day. Would highly recommend.

Great time with Luca
It was so nice to have Luca as our guide to Bernina. Although the trip only consisted of me and my Fiancé, Luca didn’t cancel the trip and guide us throughout the trip. Bernina express is stunning as everyone knows. But what I want to show my appreciation is that Luca has placed every effort in taking care both of us, not only photo taking, but also left us time to wander around. He was very humorous during his driving, shared everything he knows about the region. I super like the session he brought us to a winery in which we bought bottles of good wine. At the end, during his drive back to Italy, he played music of Switzerland to cope with the environment of the snowy mountain. What a lovely experience by Luca. Thanks a lot.

Best tour I’ve ever had!
Best trip I’ve ever had in Italy! My fiancé found Luca in TripAdvisor and we figured out day to join the tour. Luca is very professional, humorous and friendly. He showed us the best of Como and told us about the history there throughout our journey. And best, he has awesome driving skill. You’d feel super comfortable in his car and we enjoyed our conversations too. LUCA is the best!

An unforgettable day
Feb 2020 • Family
We are a five-people family from Spain. We spent a fantastic day visiting el Lago Como, the Valtelina Valley and the Bernina scenic train from Varena to St. Moritz. Everything was perfectly organiced by the guide, Luca. As Luca is from this area he could share with us both his knowledge and love of their customs and landscapes.
We really enjoy a local shop called Ciaponni, where Luca showed us a wine cellar and some typical products from this area.
We hardly recommend this tour with Luca!!

Beautiful Tour of the Alps
Nov 2019 • Friends
It is hard to find a tour that can fill a day with such a variety of adventures. I decided on this tour because the guide managed all aspects of the travel and made it super convenient. Aside from the convenience and remarkable experiences, it would be extremely challenging to do all of the excursions at a lower cost. Luca, the guide is a local and has relationships with everyone along the tour. The tour takes you from Milan and along the shores of Lake Como until you reach the Bernina Express. Along the way Luca treated us to cappuccinos at a local cafe and described the churches, castles, and history of the Lake Como area. It was really nasty weather the day of our tour but Luca made the best of every moment. We lunched at an Osteria high in the Alps before boarding the Bernina Express. Luca met us at our stop and took us further up the route so we could get out and really enjoy the open air and snow in the Swiss Alps. It’s hard to imagine waking up in Milan and finding yourself in a snowy wonderland high in the Alps later that same day. On the way back we toured a local winery at no extra cost. It included a wine tasting with local pairings and a full explanation of the wine making process of the region. I honesty can’t speak highly enough about the guide Luca and adventure he provides at such an affordable price and incredible convenience.

Outstanding tour!
Nov 2019
This tour was well rounded, scenic, interesting and professionally guided. Luca made sure we met up easily, and had a wonderful day together, and provided us with great commentary of all the sights. We especially enjoyed his sense of humor and delightful Swiss music for the ride back. Thanks Luca!

Memorable Tour
Oct 2019
This is one of the best tours we've ever had. Luca was excellent. Even before the tour started, he got in touch with us and made sure we understood the instructions to go to Varenna where we met up with him. We were brought to delightful little towns along Lake Como - Varenna, Morbegno and Tirano. We had the chance to purchase good wine and cheese and visit the cellars where they're made. The Bernina Express was amazing. The views in Switzerland were unbelievable - picture-perfect and breathtaking. Luca also took great photos of us in St Moritz and made sure were able to buy our favorite Laderach chocolates. He was very patient and treated us like friends. Giovanni was also an excellent driver. All in all, it was a memorable tour - an experience we will never forget.
