Our guides, Chris and Alex were terrific. They were knowledgeable, relaxed and very helpful. It was a very busy day but we didn't feel rushed. Definitely the highlight of our trip to Italy. The scenery was just beautiful. Lunch was amazing. We walk regularly so we didn't find it overly taxing. Be sure to wear good comfortable shoes. Very happy we did this hiking tour in September as opposed to the heat of the summer. In the big cities in Italy you are constantly hounded to buy things from street vendors so this was a wonderful day long reprieve from that. The towns you visit are quaint and though there are vendors, they have a completely different feel as opposed to the big cities. You won't regret this tour.
The Cinque Terra area was one of the prettiest areas that we have visited. The tour was conducted by Walkabout Tours and they were very good. Julian and Freddie were our tour guides and did an outstanding job. One of the ladies with us has a fear of heights. Freddie stayed with her on the hike and made sure that she made it safely. Both Julian and Freddie kept the tour interesting and fun. I would highly recommend this tour.
This day was a very well planned use of time. We visited so many key sites. We did great walk and had a lovely lunch. Top day, couldn't have been better.
Great tour, very happy patient guides. Beautiful towns, yummy lunch and very organised schedule. Hike is rigorous but do-able, the scenery is lovely.
An outstanding day in every respect. We had perfect weather, a great group of fellow hikers and fantastic tour guides, who really made the day fun with their knowledge of the area and good humour. The lunch on a
Terrace at Corniglia was delicious and the views spectacular. The walk was mainly downhill and in the morning before it got too hot. We were all relieved after our lunch to be taking the train between the next 2 towns and the boat ride for the last leg was fun and a great photo opportunity as we passed all the picturesque little towns on our way back. Plenty of time in the towns to shop, swim and eat gelati, this day trip was definitely one of the highlights of our Italian holiday. I highly recommend and if you are lucky enough to get Julian and Freddy as your guides, please tell them Bongiorno and Grazie for a wonderful day!!
Absolutely awesome! Both stefano and Julian were not only knowledgable but fun. The countryside is breathtakingly beautiful, will definitely be staying a couple of nights in the Cinque Terre on our next visit. Highly recommend the tour!
I was willing to leave the group and wonder with my husband on our own. But I have to say, for a 12 hour trip we did a lot, and our guide Barbara was very active and attentive. We left the group in MonteRosso, as the time we had there was short and we prefer to have a coffee and crostatta in a charming Cafe by the beach. The hiking was tough, but amazing. Do it on your path and enjoy the view, Barbara will be in the finish line waiting for you.
Freddy and Alex were are tour guides. They were so knowledgeable of the area, giving us history of the towns we passed on our way to Cinque Terre. They made the trip fun and encouraged us as we hiked along the trail. Lunch was so good! My husband and I really enjoyed this tour.
Even though we had a lot of rain to deal with during our day the brother team (tour guides) were excellent. Under the circumstances I was surprised they knew where each person was during this day. We will be doing Viator tours again on all out travels and look fwd to visiting Cinque Terre again.
Our tour guide Freddy was great. Thoroughly enjoyed our day exploring Cinque Terre
A great hike in a great place by very great and informative tour guides. Thanks Freddy and Julian :-)
Totally worth every penny
Thanks to our wonderful guides! The trip was really amazing! Such a beautiful place. Wish everyone visit Cinque Terre.
Best Tour I have ever been on! Stephano and Alex were excellent tour guides.
This tour is a must!
Perfect amount of talk and info on trip out - the guides were FABULOUS! Llunch is excellent, hike after lunch is great, busy track though and you really need to be 100% fit to do it, as many who weren't or were slightly older struggled- guides give you a train option. Adequate free time in each town too
Great tour, very well planned considering we took a bus, train and a boat ! Beautiful views , awesome lunch, great guide! Hike could be challenging for some and small children, comfy shoes are a must! Totally recommend this tour for hiking enthusiasts and for all that want to escape from the city and experience Italy from a different point of view.
