Best tour guides ever, and the highlight of my trip!

Took this tour on August 18th, Sandra and Fredie from the tour operator in Florence were All-Stars during this tour. The whole day was great and difficult. Sandra hiked the trail like she made it and Fredie took one for the team when a guest got behind on the trail. Now lunch in the 2nd town...I am not a fan of raw fish but the pesto pasta was good. Eat quickly but enjoy it so you can use the restroom to put on bathing suit or to go and get gelato for the short hike to the train station. Vernazzo (town 3) was neat and had some good photo opps. Going swimming was a chore with the pebble beach and cold water but everyone seemed fine with just laying on the rocks. Monterosso, didnt get much time here because I waited in line for the fried dough. I'll save you some time, dont get suckered into this 1.5 EUR snack. It's basically just cheese stuffed dough, I was not impressed and it definately was not worth waiting 20min for. Instead do the wine tasting next door for 15 EUR or go for a quick swim. Leaving Monterosso was cool, try to get a seat on the back of the boat facing the back or left side. Riomaggiore was beautiful arriving to it, not much to do there though. Take some steps to the top for a better view of the mountainside. Things to note, we had to wait for the trains in between towns due to crowds causing them to be late. Sandra and Fredie kept the group together and were great leaders when it came time to getting people in tight spaces and ensuring the group got on and everyone got off the train.

Tour guides were very engaging, friendly, and informative. I left cinque terre feeling I got to experience a little but from each town. The weather and trains are unpredictable, but the guides did a great job offering us options to keep the tour fun. Highly recommended!

Martina and Angel were terrific tour hosts. They kept us informed and entertained throughout the day. The day was awesome and the views along the Cinque Terre trail were amazing. It rained a lot the day we went and the trail was slippery so please bring good foot ware and a walking stick is recommended. It took us about 1 hour 45 minutes. I definitely need to plan a longer stay in this amazing part of Italy. Highly recommend you add this to your trip planning.

The guides were great and the hikes were very do-able. My only complaint was that the guides always told us where the bathrooms were, but there was very little time to go.

What a great experience this trip was for a one day hiking trip. The physicality of the trip was invigorating,so much so we still felt the trip two days later in our legs. There is no doubt that the hike is at times physical challenging but the pace allows for recovery time along the trail. Good shoes are a must. The views of the hike are amazing, breathtaking and incredible. Our guides that day were beyond excellent, Sandra was our group leader that day. They both were very personable, knowledgable, experienced and fun to be with. The dinner at noon hour is a must for the trip. A very scenic and cosy restaurant that had great service along with a unique meal that featured the local seafood cuisine. To end your second hike at the fourth village and to cap it off with getting your feet wet in the Mediterranean Sea was almost as perfect as the cool beer to finish off the hike. Viator went out of its way to accommodate the group. The bus ride out to the site was informative along with the comfortable ride. We are in our mid fifties ( feel like we are mid forties) and were so pleased that we did this adventure. As I said earlier our guides were incredible and only made this trip that much better. If you are looking for a adventure and need to spend a day outside of a museum this is the tour that you will want to do.

Fantastic day at Cinque Terre, The only way to go is by tour, our tour guide Freddie was awesome, Its a long day but really worth it, there is a lot of walking and hiking involved including 400 step up. I am very average fitness and at 48 years old was one of the oldest to do the hiking up and around mountains, but did it better than expected, especially since it was a hot day. The views were spectacular, visited all 5 villages and spent time in some, had a dip in the water, train rides and speed boat rides. Lunch was delicious with great views. A great day, highly recommend this tour.
