This was a fabulous way to quickly see the Cinque Terre area. The hiking was not too difficult, despite the heat there was a nice breeze the day we were there. Our guides, Lavinia and Molly were amazing. They knew the area, warned us about the conditions on the trail well, and had great suggestions for things to see in each town as well as places to grab food and/or snacks along the way.
Both my wife and I really enjoyed the hiking trip. We are really lucky to have Fabio as our walking tour guide. He is really passionate about his job, know the area very well, care about every single tour members, has a great sense of humor and the list goes on. We would definitely recommend Fabio and his company to all our friends who plan to visit Florence and Cinque Terre.
Me and my son absolutely love this tour. The tour is well organized the lunch is great the tour guide, Sandra I hope I get her name right is excellent. Highly recommended. My son enjoys tremendously his first swim and dive in this area of the Italian Mediterranean sea.
Great experience. You really need to be above average to take this on..no kidding about that! Beautiful towns and wonderful lunch. Highly recommend!!
This day was outstanding in every way! The guides were knowledgable, personable, and great fun. The tour itself took us to stunning places in the Cinque Terre. I loved the hike though it was strenuous for some. The included lunch was fantastic. I highly recommend this tour and, in fact, will buy it as a gift for my son who will be in Florence in a few months.
Hands-down one of the best days for our family of four while visiting Italy. Our guides Angel and Sandra were extremely fun, friendly and knowledgeable, and provided a lot of humor throughout the day. We learned much about the history and background of these beautiful towns. We thoroughly enjoyed their restaurant - the meal and the views were fantastic. An absolutely great day, don't miss this hike!
One of the most memorable places of the tour. The view was spectacular, and the food was delicious. If you are in florence, don't miss out this beauty!
This tour is amazing! If you have a day in florence and are trying to decide what tour to take I highly recommend this one. My wife and I absolutely loved it. Our tour guides, Julian and Johnny were informative, funny, and extremely accommodating. It is a hiking tour, but there are people who have no business hiking who still completed it in their late 60's and not in hiking shape. The great thing for us was that we were able to go at our own pace, which was ahead of the group, so we had more time in each village. Julian and Johnny pointed us in the right direction and then stayed with those who hiked slowly while most went ahead. The Cinque Terre is beautiful, probably the most gorgeous place I have ever been. We were able to get some great local food, swim in three of the villages, and enjoy some great shopping opportunities my wife told me to write that. This was our 2nd trip to Europe and it was by far the best tour we have ever done.
I've been home for two weeks now and I have raved about this tour to everyone I've talked to. I can't say enough good things! This tour exceeded my expectations in every way: we were able to go to all five towns in Cinque Terre, the guides were super fun and very knowledgable, and the tour was organized with superb efficiency. It was great to be able to hike and boat between some of the towns, and everything was paced nicely to were I felt like I had enough time to see and do what I wanted without feeling rushed. I would say with fair warning that the hike is probably more enjoyable if you're in better shape, but doable if you take your time. This tour was the highlight of my entire trip to Italy!
Excellent!! Fun and informative guides, well organized. The hike part is quite strenuous - come with good hiking shoes and plenty of water and cash for the little bar halfway along - you'll thank yourself!. We went in July - very hot and the train part was packed with people. But it all worked well. A great day!!
This was a great day trip! It was definitely a lot of walking and hiking so dress appropriately, bring water, and bring your bathing suit for swimming at the end of the day.
Great day! The hike was perfect- challenging but manageable. The guides did a great job of keeping up with us but letting us roam, and finding stops along the way. Extremely well managed. Worth every penny. Cinque Terre is gorgeous and the tour was fantastic!
Johnny was our tour guide he was very knowledgeable, funny , kind and interacted with everyone on the tour even though there were 32 of us. We had a great time I would recommend this trip to anyone.
First things first....this tour does involve a good amount of physical exertion. The beginning involves climbing up multiple flights of stairs to get to the top where the hike begins. You must have good footwear and be in reasonably good physical shape. That being said....this trip was excellent and we had a wonderful time with Martina as our guide. She was very personable, took the time to get to know each person in her group, and kept track of each one of us as we did the hike at our own pace. She also managed to get us all on and off the very crowded Saturday trains, which was no small feat. Thanks for a great trip Martina! We were lucky enough to have a beautiful sunny day for our trip and the scenery was amazing! If you are interested in seeing Cinque Terre in a day, this trip is the way to do it. Some of the best pictures from our trip to Italy came from this trip.
Fantastic day, the guides we were with Freddie and Francesco were absolutely amazing !!! The hiking part was a little difficult we were in the middle of a heat wave... but it was worth it, the views were breathtaking ! The tour was very well organized, the guides were very helpful. It was a great day, thanks again !!!!
Wonderful day and trip to Cinque Terre! Everything I expected and more. Our guide, Francesco was a delight and very informative. Thank yoU!
Everything about this was wonderful! Walkabout has a great and knowledgeable group of tour guides. The weather was fantastic that day, which made hiking and swimming in the Mediterranean that much more enjoyable. It's worth every penny to visit these little towns!
This tour - and the tour guide Martina was spectacular. The day was incredibly hot, which made it a challenge, but it probably made it more memorable. The lunch was good if you like seafood, and the hike was challenging, but the views and experience were incredible. One of the best parts of Italy - if not the best!
Thanks again to Martina for being a great guide...
Great tour and attentative tour guides. The tour guides provided great recommendations and background information for each stop. Since it was a very hot day, the tour guides made sure we were hydrated and comfortable.
Martina was an excellent guide who was very knowledgeable about the area. This made the tour very interesting. I was impressed with the personal service and Martina taking the time to get to know everyone. She had a great sense of humour and her instructions were clear and easy to follow. A great tour that i would highly recommend.
Really won't be an exaggeration to say that this was one of the best tours I have been on!
So well organised, personal, warm, education and fun!
Our tour guides Gloria and Fabian looked after us so well all day, gave us loads of interesting information, lots of curiosities about the areas and the places we were passing on the way and of course once there seeing 5 villages. It is a long ride and they made it fun and enjoyable, and I learnt a lot!
They gave us tips on the local specialities to try, and things to do while there. There was a good balance between them leading us and giving us freedom and free time to enjoy the experience. And of course the Italian Riviera... it is breathtaking... a postcard kind of place everyone must see at least once in their life!
I had such a great day! Thanks so much!!
Cinque Terre is beautiful! The guides did a nice job of making sure everyone moved from point A to point B in a timely manner. The guides were also pleasant and knowledgeable.
Fabian or Mr Fabulous the tour guide was exactly that fabulous, helpful, infomative and nothing was too much trouble. Great experience and tour
