    Our guide was very informative and easy to understand. There were only 4 in the group which made a nice size. Riding the high road back and looking at each village from above was just breathtaking. Excellent guide and smooth tour.

    We loved this tour! We went on this tour to have a more personal experience than a large bus. There were only two other people on the tour, and Jonathan was our excellent guide. He was very proficient in English and provided a lot of interesting information. He was extremely knowledgable about the areas we travelled through, from history to geography to food. Cinque Terre is an amazing area, just like you see in pictures! The weather was very rainy and foggy, making it less desirable to see the usual number of villages in Cinque Terre, so Jonathan suggested we make up for it with a
    visit to Pisa, which was such a great addition to the day. We would highly recommend this tour; the extra cost was worth it! Thank you again to our guide!

    Great way to do a first visit to Cinque Terre. Leonardo was our driver and we were 3 other couples that we did not know. Van fits 9 and is comfortable enough. Leonardo was very knowledgable and willing to share information. We were impacted by some weather issues which Leonardo worked around to ensure we were still able to enjoy the experience. Much easier, and safer, than driving yourself. Definitely worth the time and cost.

    Really professionnel guide, Jonatan was really nice and interesting. We visited three of the five towns and it was enough. We didn't get to do the boat ride because of the bad weather, but it was worthy.

    Of our tours this was my husband and my least favorite tour, but our traveling family members favorite. So here is why. First for me.. this was a small group tour 8 people, in an 8 seat van it was a long 2 hour ride. Second you basically have a driver and not a guide. So you get dumped from town to town with no real idea of what to see and where to go. I prefer guides where along the way you learn about the area. My sister in law however... LOVED IT. She and her husband are avid hikers and loved the challenges of the terrains. As a person of average physical fitness this tour was not challenging for me, but if you have any physical issues Cinque Terre is probably not for you. To sum up my feelings, I am so happy we did this just for the amazing views. But probably not on our list of places we would return too. My in laws however are already planning a trip back to stay here and hike the trails.

    Booked the small group tour which was the best way to go. Total of 8 of us went with our guide, Francesco. It took awhile for him to warm up to us, but once we all stopped talking and started asking him questions he was very knowledgeable and helpful. The day went well, the only disappointment was that the weather did not permit the boats to operate but then we got to experience the trains. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a day trip to Cinque Terre while in Florence.

    James was our tour guide. We had a small group, 8 people, so we drove the 2 hours to Cinque Terre in a nice van that was comfortable. James pointed out interesting attractions and gave us a lot of facts about the area on the way down and back. We visited three of the five gorgeous fishing villages that make up Cinque Terre. Breathtaking views all day long, of the lush mountains and the sparkling Mediterranean. Fabulous day. Complementary gelato!

    This is definitely not a tour. This is a transport service. Our driver was prompt, drove safely and left us in the appropriate spots as indicated in the tour. That is the only positive thing I can say. Our guide, Frederico, who didn’t give us his name until we asked barely spoke to us. At
    Pickup he explained to us the itinerary of the day and that was the last time he spoke to us. During the 2+ hour drive each way he was completely silent. He did not offer any information on the sights we passed or Cinque Terre as we approached the area. He walked us to the appropriate area to catch the train since the boats weren’t running and then picked us up at the designated area. That was the extent of our interaction. He was irritated by the crowds and seemed annoyed at the ticket booth where he had to buy our tkts. This tour was 3x the amount of the other tours to the same area because it offered a tour guide and a small group. It was absolutely not worth the money with this tour guide. If you are thinking of a small group tour with a tour guide make sure you ask ahead of time if the guide plans to actually speak to you. I would not recommend this tour to anyone.
