It's a fantastic service, usually on time, polite & efficient & not expensive. Of course, it's in Italy, so don't expect Swiss standards. The organisation, timetables, ticket prices are all a bit of a muddle but it does work, most of the time & they do an important job of ferrying all the workers on & off the islands, as well as us, tourists.

Hi it was very nice this boat trip. Also that you have all the time by yourself. Hop on hop off. The island are lovely. The minus part was to find out in Stresa where is the boat. Also the cost to visit the gardens and castle are more expensive as we thought.

I paid just €4.60 for a return ticket on this boat. A short ride across from Carciano to Isola Bella. You can ofcourse take the boat from Stresa to Isola Bella but the lakeside walk from Stresa to the dock in Carciano is so beautiful, it’s worth the “passeggiata”. Takes about 15mins tops. And every angle is photo-friendly.

Terrible service. The hop on hop off is actually, time scheduled trip. The times are set. In our case the day I booked the trip there was heavy rain and thunder with lighting. In their terms and regulations it was stated, that at bad weather conditions the trip can be cancelled or rescheduled. But when we got at the pier, no one was to be found, so we couldn't arrange a refund or change make a change. So no trip and loss of money. It looks like a scam.

Ok granted it was a Saturday so more people then usual, but wow what a mess. Out tour paper said start at 9:30 am of which we were there shortly before hand. We got the real ticket, which we did not know we needed. Then we were told first boat would not leave until 10:30 am which turned out to be 10:45 am. We got off at the first Island, you think hop-on-hop off tour, well they only left on the hour. Went and saw the grounds, and palace, then came back to wait with a huge amount of people. The first boat that came back took no one on it, he said no pax. Then they sent two more one right after another, but the line was so long and people were crowding the little jetty I was afraid someone would fall and get hurt. That made it 2:00 pm by then and they said the last boat from the next Island would be at 4:00 so we just went back to Stresa. What a joke. We could have gotten the ferry that operates and uses real loading docks and gives you information for a bit more then we paid and then been able to see all three Islands. I would love to have my money back.
