    We were on the Norwegian Epic & stopped in Livorno. We were a group of 14, ranging in age from 16 to 80. Emilia & Luigi were our private guides for the day. We had two comfortable minivans. We first went to Pisa to see the tower, and then went to Cinque Terre. It was amazing - well-organized & fun. Emilia handled 5 teenagers with ease! The drivers were great as well. I loved being able to customize it to exactly what we wanted, with their input. The office staff was great as well. We really enjoyed our tour.

    Elizabeta gave us a magical day touring the towns of Cinque Terre. Stefano drove us safely from the port up into the mountains. The views were absolutely amazing! We will go back and visit with her every time we find ourselves in Italy!

    We pre booked this tour with another 2 couples for our 1 day in Liverno from our Mediterranean Cruise. Our driver Danielle & our guide Rosella were waiting upon our arrival. Rosella was really great. Very friendly, knowledgeable & accommodating. She took care of getting all our train/ferry tickets and showing us the main attractions & pointing us in the direction to explore some on our own. Would definitely recommend this to maximize you time & see the main attractions.

    Wonderful tour! Amelia was fantastic. She easily catered the tour to our group of 8 people ranging in age from 24 to 82.
    She was very knowledgeable and friendly. We will certainly be booking another tour with Amelia when visiting the area again.

    We visited La Spezia in July of 2017. We arrived via our cruise ship. We decided to book a private tour/car so that we could maximize our short stay in La Spezia. Upon arrival to the cruise port, we were greeted by our guide, Alessandra, and our driver, Amelia. They were both very friendly and welcomed us to their town. Our first stop was Portovenere. We had never visited Portovenere so this was a nice surprise, as Portovenere is a town that we would definitely consider visiting again on a future visit to La Spezia. We didn't spend a lot of time there, and we arrived very early in the morning so many of the stores and restaurants were closed. This was a bummer, as we would have loved to grab a bite to eat and do a little shopping during our visit. After visiting Portovenere, we drove to Cinque Terre, five territories, where we visited 4 of the 5 territories. We visited Riomaggiore, Vernazza, Monterosso and Manarola in this order. The only territory that we didn't visit was Corniglia, because to access Corniglia, you must climb 379 steps. We ate lunch in Monterosso at a place called Il Casello. The view was amazing, but the food wasn't anything to write home about. My friend and I ordered the trofie pasta, which came in a pesto sauce. The trofie pasta is local to this area. My husband ordered the seafood and spaghetti, but it wasn't as flavorful as he had expected. During our visit to Cinque Terre 3 years ago, we ate at another restaurant in Monterosso, and the food was "to die for!" We were disappointed that we tried this restaurant. Although our tour guide and driver were very nice, we recognized that we could have done this entire tour by ourselves by taking the train from La Spezia, for a fraction of the price. We paid $165.00 for three people, and there was nothing, other than transportation, that we received from the tour that we couldn't have accessed on our own. Do your research so that you can inexpensively explore the absolutely stunning Cinque Terre on your own. We love CInque Terre, as this was our second visit. Again, we would just recommend that you tour Cinque Terre own your own.

    My husband and I booked a private Cinque Terre tour for one of our days in Tuscany. Our driver and tour guide were incredibly sweet and accommodating. We were picked up at our villa and driven to Riomaggiore where our tour began. Our guide expertly managed us through the other tourists and lines on & off the ferry. She was perfectly balanced between showing us around and also letting us have free time alone to explore. We would have been lost without her and due to her expertise we were able to visit the cities with enough time to soak them each in. Thank you Bella Italia!
