Great way to go through 4 of the cities. In retrospect, probably could have figured out the trains and travel, but glad we did it. It was very crowded even in September but after Rome, Venice and Florence we expected it. Our guide was great, very down to earth and understood everything, nothing rattled her and I'd definitely go on another tour she lead. She dealt with a few cranky people in our group very well and I have to say she had way more patience than I would have had.

The tour was a nice overview of each of the little cities we went to and gave me a sense of where I'd stay for a day or two next time. Solid money value.

Great Tour. Very Informative. Recommended! Just beware if attending during summer holidays as public trains are caught and they can be crowded. Especially if the Sea is deemed to rough for the boat ride, the train is then substituted for that.

Our tour guide Julio (hope I didn't spell his name wrong) was superb. He's one of the most attentive and responsible tour guides we have met.

It was a fine day but the sea was a bit rough. We were told there is no boat ride in the morning. To our surprise, after our visit in Riomaggiore, Julio brought us good news that the boat operator may resume the boat service in half an hour. When we arrived the gather point for the boat, yet the boat operator changed their mind again and said the boat will not be resumed. All of us were very disappointed as the boat ride was obviously a highlight of the trip.

Julio was so kind to negotiate with the boat operator for us. We could feel that he really hoped to present the best of Cinque Terre to his guests to make it a perfect tour. At the end, we had spent around an hour extra in Riomaggiore in order to join the boat ride, however, it's all worth it as the ride was great and you can look at the whole Cinque Terre coastline like what you see in postcards. It was because of this incident that the tour ended up overrun for an hour, but Julio didn't mind to work OT at all and gave us enough time in each village as originally scheduled. We were so glad that we had Julio as our tour guide. Without him we must have left Riomaggiore by train and missed the scenic boat ride.

Agree with some previous comments that not too much information was given on the area or history. However, in such scenic spot, I think to experience it with your senses is the best way to get to know the place. Also, the villages were all so small that we could easily scroll along ourselves without being guided and meet up with the group at the scheduled time and place. Lunch was fine with extremely efficient service which saved us time to explore Monterosso on our own. Scenery was picturesque as expected, among the best in Italy. Highly recommend this tour if you have limited time for the destination and wish you meet Julio. He is just amazing.

Wow, what beauty in these five quaint villages! Tour guide good as far as organisation was concerned, but could have been more interactive and given more information about the origins/history of the villages.

Our tour guide was fantastic and the tour was brilliant. We had an
incredible time, it was everything we imagined it to be. Our tour guide
was hilarious and had a great personality which made the experience even
better. We loved it, so happy we did it. I would recommend this to anyone, the Cinque Terra is a must see and if you're short on time this is the perfect option.

Great guide and great scenery. Food was amazing. Water was refreshing. Needed just a little more time in some of the lands.

What a beautiful place. Our bus ride was good. The trains between the villages were very crowded. We had a very rainy day, so could not get on the boat. I wish the tour guides were explaining a little more about the history of this place.

We visited 4 villages at Cinque Terre and the trip was 12 hours long and an extremely hot day. Involved a 2 and 1/2 hour bus drive to Manarola the first village and time to look around at each stop. Riomaggiori by train. Boat to Monterossa. Train to venazza. Then train to La Spezia to catch the bus back to Florence which took 2 hours. Quite a scenic route..
Seeing the villages by boat is a must.
We found it was good to do the trip this way as trying to work out th e schedule ourselves was too hard.
We chose the lunch option which was highly recommended. Basil pesto pasta was delicious.
The guide was good at getting us to each village on time but we expected more information on each place and that was not supplied.
If you have limited time to visit then this is a good option.
