Doing this with my 4 best friends of 20 years was by far one of the top experiences of my life. The views are unmatched. The hike up the mountain was the best/most beautiful nature oriented workout I've ever done. Every village has its own unique vibe. The food at the Mediterranean Sea-side restaurant is some of the freshest you will ever taste. And our tour guide looked like Ryan Gosseling and was very friendly/informative.I would/will literally do this tour every time I am near Florence. Thank you viator
A wonderful experience!! Fabio was so much fun and anything you do with the Walkabout tours you will not be disappointed. We signed up for more tours with Walkabout once we did this first one!! You will not be disappointed!! Loved, loved, loved the Florence area and the local tour operator helped so much with our amazing experience.
Incredible Tour!!!!!! Everyone should do this tour! Lots of hiking and walking, for sure. The scenery ,
Beautiful!!!!!!! Breathtaking! Our guide was great too!
I loved this tour. It was a great way to see the Cinque Terre in one day. It won't suit you if you are wanting to fully hike between each town because you only hike between two towns if you want to. The tour started in the second town, Manarola. From there we caught a train and walked up 385 steps to Cornilglia and had a nice two course lunch. From there you could hike 4km to the 4th village, Monterroso or to take a train. Because it had been raining and the steps were wet I took the train but I was told it was spectacular and scary. The town itself was beautiful.
We took the teain to Vernazza and had 45 minutes to explore it, drink some wine or take a dip in the ocean. From there we took a boat to the 1st town, Riomaggiore where we were given an hour to explore and grab a bite to eat. The town was charming and approaching by boat gave you a chance to view all of the towns by water.
it was a long day from 8am to 5pm with 5 hours in the bus. But the tour guide Johnny was great. He gave us lots of information about places we passed.
Altho we would have loved to have spent a couple days in this beautiful area time did now allow it. This is definately a great way to see these towns - and get some exercise at the same time! It was a comfortable bus ride from Florence, and our 2 tour guides were super - fun, personable and very knowledgeable and informative. We had a delicious lunch overlooking the sea and plenty of time to explore the little towns on our own. We lucked out with a beautiful day and were able to take the boat ride at the end to see the towns from the water. Overall this was a highlight of our Italian trip and we would definately recommend it!!
Wonderful tour of seaside villages with spectacular views and quaint fishing villages. Not for everyone as it requires climbing lots of stairs and moderate hiking. The tour guide, Martina, was wonderful and attentive to all throughout a long day.
Even though weather was not great the tour guides were fantastic and made our day exceptional. No question I would recommend this trip to anyone interested in a substantial and very unique walk from town to town. Food was great at both the restaurant early on and the multiple shops toward the end of the trip.
Beautiful experience walking all over cinque terre. We only missed the boat part because of the weather condition. I truly recommend it!
If I could give this more than 5 stars I would. Def. one of my fave experiences in Italy. The tour was extremely well organized and we loved our tour guides, Freddie and Sandra. Unfortunately due to the weather we were unable to do the boat cruise but overall, it was such a great experience. The hike was amazing, beautiful views. Highly recommend it for anyone visiting florence.
This is a very full day tour and involves a lot of walking and climbing. What a great day!! Learned a lot, enjoyed each of the 5 towns, loved the 'ocean cruise', and had a pleasant day overall on the Mediterranean coast.
This tour was a highlight of my girlfriend and mine and #39;s month-long European trip. Our guide, Johnny, was hilarious and very knowledgeable of the region. The food served at lunch was superb, and the sights were breathtaking. It was supposed to rain, but the sun stayed out w/clouds over the hills. Beautiful
Excellent hike but be prepared to go up hill......
We loved this tour, one of our best experiences while in Europe. Plus, this was the best food we had in our entire 23 days trip.
Don't miss it!
The tour was great - everything was well planned and implemented. Fabien, the guide, was awesome!!
Freddie was very passionate about this hike. Although we had some delay with the train and have to give one of the village a miss, but this is not something within his control but he was entertaining and keep the spirit high. Well recommended.
The view was impressive, the provided food was pretty good, Gelato I bought was amazing and the tour guide Fabian? was awesome! Thank you for such a great experience!! :
This tour is amazing! Our guide Francesco was knowledgeable and along the hike he would stop at different points and wait for you to catch up. The hike itself isn and #39;t hard if you are used to walking. We took our time so we could take photos and enjoy the view. Best tour I have done. Don and #39;t miss out.
Another wonderful tour! Again, raining and cold but our guide was a wealth of information and very concerned with our needs. He kept us all on schedule with humor and kindness.
Our tour guide Francesco made the experience extremely memorable and we were able to see a beautiful part of the world not many people know even exists.
Cinque Terre is a must visit location. This tour was a great way to see it. Sandra, our guide, was terrific. She was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We experienced four of the five towns and the hike between the second and third towns was arduous but not impossible.
Fantastic day out.
Lovely change from the wonderful sights in the city.
Boat trip was amazing!
Martina would have to be one of the best guides from anywhere in the world.......friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and reliable.
Would very much recommend this excursion!!
Took the 6 Nov tour with Freddy and Fabian as our guide. Our group of 40 pple was spilt up and I was in Freddy group. He is a very informative guide who entertain us a lot with his knowledge and talk. Cinque Terre is definitely worth a day trip to go for if you are in Florence. Beautiful scenery though the hike was challenging. Disappointment though when the trip was delayed due to the train in the second half of the day but not at fault of the tour company. Overall a fun and nice experience!
