We chose this trip initially because we wanted to see the largest lake in the Lakes District of Italy. While we hoped to see the Swiss Alps the cloud cover obscured our view but it did not matter as we were in for a wonderful experience.
Our guide was so lovely, enthusiastic and very helpful in the way she presented the tour. The bus driver was also friendly and genuinely concerned about our comfort.
The visit to the Isola Bella was excellent and the tour of the palace and gardens was breathtaking. We had no idea of the history that we were about to learn. We could not believe it when we saw areas of the palace where Napoloeon Bonaparte and Josephine slept. Also the fact that Princess Diana and Charles had attended a celebration in their honour given by the Borromees during their tour of Italy was another surprise.
We learnt so much about the Italian nobility and the fact that their presence and influence continues today. The fact that they continue to use the top levels of the palace as their summer house took us completely by surprise.
Everything about our tour exceeded our expectations. Even though only 12 people booked this tour it went ahead in a luxury coach with commentary in two languages. Thank you for a great day. Darlene and Rob Elder.

My husband and I came to Milan for an extended stay in early September. The last Sunday of the month we booked a one-day Veltra t...rip to Lake Maggiore and Stressa. We left from Milan at 9:00 am and returned about 6:30 pm. The Veltra bus departure location was very conveniently located right outside the Cairola metro stop in the historic center of Milan. The bus was clean and comfortable and a very easy place to relax. The Veltra guide, Antonella was pleasant and informative. She gave information in English and Portuguese. We arrived in Stressa and promptly boarded a boat to cruise around Lake Maggiore. We stopped at Isola Bella where we received a tour of the incredible palazzo and gardens built in the 17th century. We then headed to Isola dei Pescatori where Antonella recommended a restaurant for lunch. Although the restaurant is in a tourist town, the food was quite good and the prices were quite reasonable. Our last stop was in the town of Stressa. A very fashionable town that had a variety of goods for sale and gelato and pastry shops for snacking. We enjoyed getting to see something outside of the city of Milan. I would highly recommend this tour for a day trip. more
