The best tour I've ever experienced. Guides were terrific and witty, landscape was breathtaking.
We decided to do this tour at the last minute and are SO glad we did!! Even the bus ride was fun, entertaining and an opportunity to learn along the way. Johnny and Fabio were stellar tour guides! They made everyone feel comfortable and just made it the best day in our 11 day tour of Italy! We got a taste of each of the 5 villages and had time to take a quick dip in the sea. They were generous with their recommendations for things to do in the villages AND once we got back to Florence and even in Rome. HIGHLY recommend this tour and any other that these fellows offer.
EXCELLENT trip! Even though it is a long day, it is well worth it. This tour was done through WalkaboutFlorence and Fabian was the tour guide. I did 2 other tours through WalkaboutFlorence and found them to be the BEST of all the activities and tours I have done on this 2 week trip. Fabian was GREAT! His upbeat, engaging approach was a real plus and added a lot to the trip. The weather was perfect and therefore we got to do the hike between villages. The one thing I would recommend is that an option be given to either eat lunch with the group included in the price of the tour or be given the option to do the hike and eat lunch at your own expense with no change in price of the tour at the next village. I thought the food for lunch at the restaurant was mediocre at best and would have preferred to hike first and then eat lunch. Overall, I would highly recommend this tour. I am not normally a tour group type person, but this experience has changed my mind. Thank for a great trip Fabian!!
Tour is the best and more organised company I have travelled with. Their enthusiasm and passion for what they do it is contagious. I did, on Wednesday, the Cinque Terre nazionale Parque tour with Fabián, who is amazing, encouraging you during the hike. Greatly recomme
An absolutely MUST if you are staying in Florence. Our tour was nothing short of perfect. I cannot say enough about our tour guide, Johnny! He was informative, personable, and led us on a memorable trip to these 5 little cities. It is wonderful to have a guide in a small area like this that know exactly what to do and where the best stops are! The weather was beautiful while we were there, and walking around the little villages was picturesque. The hike is intense and you must be in good shape. However, there is an alternative for those that still want to enjoy the trip without this physical component. Lunch was delicious- we had fresh pesto from the little village where it was invented! At the end of the day, we went for a dip in the Meditterean and took a beautiful boat ride back down the coast. I cannot highly recommend this tour enough!
We had an amazing experience in Cinque Terre. Freddie and Sandra were amazing tour guides with amazing knowledge, amazing attitude and made everybody feel comfortable in this long trek. The food arranged by Walkabout was splendid and deserves a special mention.
Trek was a bit tiring but the views were totally worth it. The time management was also excellent, with leisure time at places but absolutely no wastage of time.
Oh my! What a fantastic experience! It was beautiful and a fun hike along the breathtaking coast. We loved out tour guide Molly she was so much fun and very professional. The little towns were so quaint and we had the best seafood and gelato on our entire holiday. We can't wait to go back and visit these towns again. This is a great way to experience Cinque Terre! My husband and I had so much fun!
Wonderful Lunch with amazing views, tour guides were knowable and happy to share information. The hike was filled with one of a kind views and time to stop and take photos. When I went in July 2015 the temperatures in Italy were 110 degrees F so hiking in the sun was a bit challenging. Bring a hat, and lots of water and enjoy
This was a highlight of our trip to Italy! Highly recommend!!!!
Freddy is an amazing tour guide and he took great care of us all. The hike was challenging because of the heat, but we all recovered with some well earned gelato afterwards!
We loved our hiking trip with Fabian! He was an excellent guide and made the trip our favorite day of the whole vacation!. The hike was beautiful and was incredibly well planned.
This is just the most amazing day - don't miss doing it everyone !
It's a tough climb - they DID warn us , but the rewards just so worth it !
Didn't we all have such fun , due to the fantastic guides L.A. Lyn and Oh so Italian Johnny. !
Thanks so much for a superb day.
Cinque Terre Trip is everything and more that you could hope for !
Awesome tour. We were able to visit all 5 villages, had a great lunch, and ended the day with a boat ride. The hiking is not a simple walk in the woods which I figured it wouldn't be and requires some strategic foot placements. The trains can be crowded and cramped. I'm glad we went with a tour and didn't try to do this on our own as a day excursion. You only need a short bit of time in each of the villages too, as some are not large at all. Molly our guide was fantastic.
Julian and Lavinia were great guides. The lunch was amazing--so fresh and delicious. It was a great day!
Fabian was an excellent guide. Extremely diligent regarding protecting us from pickpockets even called some out verbally on the train!, informative in terms of providing us with local recommendations in each village, and a well organized tour overall. Ran a little on the late side, we didn't get back to Florence until around 9:15, but there's not much they can do about traffic.
Freddie and Johnny were great. Very knowledgeable and provided a lot of insight. Appreciated that they spoke individually with each of us on the bus ride back and personally answered our questions.
This was a fabulous tour. You must realize the hike portion is serious and you want to wear good shoes. But the views are breathtaking! Fabiano was the PERFECT tour guide. He knows the tips/tricks to getting around in the crowds - and there definitely were crowds on the trains/stations. He would actually call out the pick pockets, which was not only helpful but quite humorous. We went mid September and the weather was perfect! I loved this tour and would whole heartedly recommend it to anyone.
It was a Wonderful trip, Jullian and Fabeon were so attentive to make sure we were doing ok and did we need anything. It was a great trip.
Our guide Freddie was amazing, you can tell he loves what he does. The hike was tough, but worth it, make sure you wear sneakers or hiking shoes.The views we fabulous and the meal was great.
I would give this six stars if I could. Our tour guide Fabian was outstanding in spite of rainy weather. The hike and scenery were spectacular. This tour was the highlight of our Italy trip.

this was a great day trip and a very efficient way to see Cinque Terre if you do not have much time. We really enjoyed the variety of of transportation train, bus, boat, hiking. The hike was great!! The lunch was not touristy. The tour guide was fantastic!
Fantastic tour. Would highly recommend this tour. Not for the faint hearted with temps in high 30s. Fabian and LeviLavi ? were brilliant. Kept us highly entertained and motivated throughout entire trip. Lunch was beautiful. Well done to Walkabout. 2nd tour with them, both 5 star.
