The Splendours of Lake Maggiore

What our previous travellers have to say about this tour

"The Splendours of Lake Maggiore was an amazing holiday"

"We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Lake Maggiore, in spite of it raining on three of the days! Our hotel, The Grand Hotel Dino, was frankly the most opulent hotel we have ever stayed in, and from entering the reception area we were immediately impressed with the ceiling and its dome decorated in coloured glass, Tiffany fashion! To just stand under it and gaze upwards is an experience and a treat in itself!


Our excursion to the Borromean Islands was most enjoyable and whilst on Isola Bella, the trip around the Palazzo Borromeo was enhanced by the young Italian lady guide whose commentary was both informative and humorous . Our visit to Lake Orta was on a lovely sunny day  (it’s surprising how the weather can make the day!). The boat trip from Orta to the San Giulio Island was brief but enjoyable – we liked Orta and would look forward to going there again.

Our drivers, Stuart and Ralph, were truly great. Stuart kept us fully informed with facts about where we were and what we were seeing or passing at that particular time, and whilst engaged in the on board refreshments, both drivers had conversations with individual passengers. They were most helpful should anyone have a problem and they certainly made our holiday with their attention to detail and with their friendliness and ongoing humour.

All in all our trip to The Splendours of Lake Maggiore was an amazing holiday. We will certainly recommend this holiday to our friends and we are sure that they would enjoy the experience as much as we did.
