Lavi and Fabian were fantastic. They were organized, articulate, warm and funny yet professional. We loved the day and all commented on the fact that it was the two tour guides that really made the day be as fantastic as it was. We would highly recommend this trip and these guides to any one interested in seeing and experiencing the breathtaking villages of Cinque Terre.
We stayed in Florence for 9 nights and decided to do day trips to explore the countryside. This was one of our favorite and most memorable tours we went on. Our tour guide Julian was very knowledgable and very friendly. If you have him as your guide, you are in good hands. Not sure how he kept us all together. The one recommendation I would give to readers is know that this tour requires you to HIKE 1-2 hours between two of the towns. These paths are made of stone/rock NOT a smooth concrete path. We talked with Julian and he told us funny stories of those that were unprepared. My wife and I wore sneakers and gym clothes and we were happy we did. The one complaint we had was even though the tour was 12 hours long, we with we had more time in each city! We will definitely make sure to stay in one of the towns the next time we are in Italy. You will not be disappointed if you book this tour. Worth EVERY penny. Thank for such a great time Julian!
Great day trip, best day of our three week visit to Italy. Our guide Freddy was simply the best. Be prepared for lots of steps, proper walking shoes are definitely recommended.
What an incredible day trip! It was a long day, but definitely worth it. The trip was well organized and our tour guides were informative, funny, and courteous to all of the tourists. It's hard to manage 50 people on a tour like this but they did a great job. I highly recommend this tour.
fun and healthy way to see all five cities. the company walkabout is wonderful and will definitely use them for other tours. also did the Florence Vespa Tour: Tuscan Hills and Italian Cuisine
Highly recommend this tour! A great way to experience Cinque Terre in a day from Florence. You will get to hike, eat local food, explore some of the villages and learn about the history of the region .
Enjoyed this excursion to Cinque Terre. We were able to see all 5 villages and see amazing views along the way. This tour was a good combination of exercise and sightseeing. There was a lot of walking so need to keep that in mind when booking. Our tour guide Stefano was great! We had lots of fun on this excursion and would recommend to anyone wanting to see the surrounding areas of Florence.

This was the very best day of my trip to Italy. I am so glad that my son and I did this. The walk was beautiful and not difficult. I went at my own pace and stopped to take a lot of pictures. Each of the villages were unique with character and personality. I would like to do this again and stay overnight in one of the villages and explore further. Highly recommend.
My husband and I really enjoyed the entire day. Julian was our guide - so professional, personable and knowledgeable about the region. Thanks for an amazing time! I'd highly recommend this tour and hope to try other tours by this company in the future.
Excellent tour. Angel our tour guide was a delight and extremely helpful. He made this tour worry and stress free. Every detail was taken care of by Angel in and efficient and light hearted manner. He also
provided valuable background information about Italy and its history. Would highly recommend this tour
and Angel as a tour guide.
This trip, run through Walkabout Florence, was wonderful! The guides, Angel and Freddy were excellent, as was the lunch. The hike is intensive with lots of hills and steps and very rough and uneven walking surfaces so take that into account. Plenty of time was given to complete the hike however. The towns are beautiful and the bus to and from is new and comfortable. I would highly recommend this tour if you are up for the walking/hiking.
This was amazing the day was great you need to be a good shape to walk this tour. Loved it... What a great lunch too.
The best thing about Italy. This tour was amazing. Fabian was the best tour guide I've had on any tour. Just a ball of positive energy. This tour company is lucky to have him. Take this tour. The hike was not very difficult. Wear good shoes.
Fantastic trip, loved our guides Lavinia and Fabian they were very knowledgable and fun to be with. Great food. Highly recommend Walkabout tours
The tour was amazing. Well worth the money. Walkabout tours is a great company with awesome guides. Fabian and Lydia tour guides were great.
This tour is awesome...enjoying the spectacular view of Cinque Terre through hiking, such a wonderful experience. Our tour guide, Freddie is so friendly and take good care of us throughout the tour.

This tour is absolutely amazing! Our fantastic guides Juliano and Francesco did a good pacing for the hike so I didn't feel tired at all. The scenery on the way is breathtaking and worth payIng my effort. Need to mention that lunch is excellent too. This tour shouldn't be missed.
This tour is so much fun! It was the highlight of our European vacation. It's an excellent value! The hike is beautiful and fun. It is a bit hard, but very doable. It seems more intimidating than it actually is. There can't be a better way to see this amazing part of Italy. The meal served on this tour is delicious and fresh and the view from the restaurant is breathtaking. The drive to the area is scenic. The bus is comfortable and the driver does a great job. The villages are fun to explore. The most impressive part of the tour was how great the guides are! Sandra and Freddy were incredibly knowledgeable. They also made an effort to get to know everyone in the tour group to help personalize the experience. They were very encouraging and to those who seemed intimidated by the hike. I can't say enough good things about this tour and the tour guides! Do this tour! You will not regret it!
Our trip was well paced and organized. We had to cover five towns in one day. Angel our guide was wonderful. He educated us with interesting facts on people and places we visited. I could not be more pleased with our decision to book this day trip.
Fabian was our guide and he was fantastic- very personable, excellent English and provided a lot of good background information.
Perfect! This tour waaaaaay exceeded my expectations. I'm usually not so fond of group tours but our guides Francesco and Fabian made this day super fun and we met some really nice people in addition. These cute little villages deserve to be explored. Get some gelato, sit by the ocean and enjoy. I can't recommend highly enough!
This tour was exceptional! The tour company Walkabout Florence was excellent and the tour guide, Freddie, was funny, knowledgeable, and clearly passionate about his work - he was a true highlight by himself - Excellent!
The trip really is a hike! We expected it to be more of a walk than a stereotypical hike meaning rough terrain, uphill, mountains, etc. but in reality this is very much a hike! An enjoyable one, but be prepared for some legitimate hiking!!
