A lovely but tiring day. The guides, Alex and Angel were excellent, taking care of all guests and ensuring that everyone knew what was happening and where to be at what time. They gave details and points of contact in the event of anyone being delayed or the getting lost. The day allowed for the varied pace of walking and nothing was too strenuous for reasonably active people. The local lunch (provided) was lovely. I would recommend this trip.
I have to say the hike scared me from what i had read but I was willing to try. I'm so glad that we did because the views were breathtaking! It wasn't even as bad as I thought it was going to be. I think just the shear beauty made you forget that you were hiking.
This tour is excellent ! Cinque Terre is breathtaking. Barbara and Sandra were wonderful guides.
This tour was fabulous. The tour guides Freddie and Angel made this some what strenuous tour, humorous and pleasurable. The scenery was fantastic. The lunch was very good! So glad we took the day to do this tour.
Poured rain so my wife didn't do the hiking but found the villages enchanting. I hiked with a few others and a guide and enjoyed the views from above. Well worth the price..rain and all !!
We had a wonderful time on our Cinque Terre day trip from Florence! Beautiful weather, great people, delicious lunch, amazing views - couldn't have wished for a better trip. And our tour guides Julien and Alex were AWESOME - they were very knowledgeable about the area and the history, and they do a great job letting you explore the area and still make all your connections. Would highly recommend this tour!
This trip was worth every penny! The views alone were worth the trip. Our tour guide, Freddy, was so informational and made the trip unique. I would recommend everyone staying in Florence to take this day trip. I found this day trip to be the perfect amount of time here. I wouldn't recommend staying overnight. The lunch on this trip was fantastic! One of the best meals we had on the trip: seafood appetizer and pesto pasta! Amazing! The description did a great job of telling you what to bring. You should be physically fit to go on this hike...they aren't kidding about this. Many people on our tour stayed back after the first hike up some stairs before lunch. Bring tennis shoes and a water bottle would be good to have. Amazing amazing!
Great tour! Tour guides Julian and Alex were wonderful. Disappointing we were not able to do the boat ride due to the choppy waters but you can't control the weather conditions. Would definitely recommend the tour but be ready to hike and sweat!
I highly recommend this tour and we had a great time. Our guides, Sandra and Stefano were awesome!! The lunch that was provided was excellent. I loved visiting each town but would have loved to spend more time in each town but now that I have experienced Cinque Terre I plan to return. The level of service provide exceeded my expectations.
This tour is a must for every people who loves nature and have free times from Florence. The duration of the tour is just enough long to not be tired at the end of the day and permit to have the time to visit all 5 Cinque Terre towns. Julian and Alex, our guides from Walkabout company, were excellent and full of informations about the Cinque Terre and the region. They gave us several options during the tour, dependly of what everyone wants to do or have the health to do (we were sicks and could not do all the hiking, but we had a train ticket for the next town and our guides gave us all informations to join the group later without the hiking). Also, the included lunch is very good and we had options for this also (we did not eat seafood and they gave us the option to have good pasta meal). Even if the weather was not very good during our tour, we enjoyed a lot this one.
Cinque Terra is beautiful. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate. It was raining too hard to do the hike. However we did get to enjoy all of the villages. We just took the train instead. Our guides were fantastic. They helped us to make the best of a rainy day.
Great trip! Both the guides were super friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful lunch, fun hike with some amazing views and even had some time to shop in the villages!
Cinque Terre...amazing, simply amazing!!! I am over 65 years young and managed to complete this hike...was it difficult yet doable, yes. High praise to the tour leaders who always came back up the trail to ensure we were ok...and we were. The high light for me was the Lunch...OMG!!!so good...try the fish appetizer, beyond awesome and I don't usually care for sea food...I'd go back to Italy just to have that lunch all over again. Scenery...what can one say...spectacular in every way. This is an awesome tour.
Loved this tour our guides were great and able to cater for everyone. Local knowledge was great. Loved the lunch.
