Fantastic, definitely worth the effort. Lunch was delicious, the selected hiking trail was manageable and our Guides very good.
We thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Julian was good fun and informative. If you want exercise then enjoy the steps at the beginning of the trip. Having walking up the Duomo and Belfry in Florence and the tower of Pisa the 2 days before, my calves now look like Popeye's arms!!! but was good fun. Highly recommended.
This tour was so much more than expected in all types of ways! First of all Freddie and Francesco were amazing guides - every tour guide should take some tips from these two...they were more like buddies showing us around than mother ducks. The ride up included some very interesting information about certain towns we passed through - I'll definitely be going back to some of them. The day we hiked there was a train strike in the morning so we ended up hiking a bit more than expected. I love hiking so I wasn't too cut up about it. Do take note though that this is a hike, not just a walk in the park so be mentally prepared and bring the right shoes. Lunch was decent, but not the highlight for me even though I'm a huge foodie. Each town has it's own unique vibe, but all so beautiful. You'll also get some free time to wander, enjoy some gelato, or a glass of wine. I would definitely recommend this tour!! Thanks for the memories :
Guides were excellent( Francesco and Julian). Very informative and helpful. Hiking was challenging but worth it for the scenery. Wish we were able to do the boat ride , but the Mediterranean did not cooperate. Cinque Terre was beautiful and a great family trip!
Great trip. The guide was great and really enjoyed the towns and the walk.
We were with Walkabout Tours. Angel and Sandra were our tour guides and they were great. Sandra had so much information about everything we saw. This is the most beautiful place I have ever seen. I highly recommend this trip. The hike from the towns can be challenging but if you take your time you will be fine. Thank you for an amazing time.
Angel and Sandra were awesome! Very enthusiastic about what they do and very informational! This is a great trip to take if you don't have multiple days in your schedule to stay within the Cinque Terre. We got to see all 5 towns and enjoy an great lunch overlooking the sea--Not to mention the hike was beautiful. I would highly recommend taking any tour with Walkabout!
One of the best trip and day of my life
you must bring your swimsuit
I swim in 3 of 5 Terre village
The food is amazing, the view is hearbreaking and the guide was my friend at the end of the day
Amazing!! Fabian and Freddie were excellent guides! English was great and easily understood. They made the tour fun and enjoyable!! Highly recommend this tour!!
This tour was awesome, so fun! Fabian was the best guide I've ever had, hope that you get him!! He had the best tips and helps you get the most out of the cinque terre trip. The hike was not difficult, much of it is shaded. Highly recommend it to anyone, and highly recommend Fabian as a guide.
Could not recommend this highly enough. Just enough hiking for the activity to accommodate for all fitness levels. Wear sturdy and comfy shoes and bring a change of clothes for after the swim. Loved Gloria our guide who along with Julian made this day fantastic. Awesome!
Out of 10 days full of tours, this one was the best by far!! Perfect plan, perfect place, perfect tour. The guide Fabian was extraordinary! He has an amazing sense of humor, he was extremely friendly and informative. The company walkabout is definitely the best in Italy!
The tour was great, however we did not get to do the boat part which was disappointing. Not really enough time in the villages. The hike was great, though challenging for many. Guide, Julian, was very enthusiastic.
This trip was an outstanding trip. Fabian was amazing as a guide, he was funny, articulate and informative. He took a real interest in everyone in the group, especially looking after those who had problems with the hike , making sure that they were catered for. The organisation for the trip was also outstanding making sure the whole group made the different meeting point. In each town he gave us tips on the best local places to eat and how to navigate the crowds. He was wonderful. This day was fantastic. I have been recommending it to people we meet who are heading to Florence.
Fabian is amazing as a tour guide. This is a full day tour and you are going to have to have some fitness to achieve the hike. You will see beautiful towns in cinque terra. And if you are lucky you get a boat ride back to the start again
Tour guides Freddy and Francesco were amazing! Very knowledgeable, very enthusiastic, very organized. This tour is a must if you haven't seen Cinque Terre; views you get while hiking are jaw dropping. Be prepared to sweat as the hike is not easy, but so worth it!
Martina is an excellent tour guide!!! She really connects with people. This hike was amazing but more strenuous that I thought. I am 57, and don't really exercise, but I DID IT!! I would suggest going up and down stairs and doing some hill hikes before going. Views are like none other!
Very well organized, guides were both wonderful, especially Fabian. The hike is short but strenuous, but we would have liked a bit more hiking and slightly less time in the cities.
The tour was fantastic and beautiful. The lunch we had was the best seafood we have ever eaten, and that statement carries some weight because my wife is from New England. haha. Our tour guide, Angel, was fantastic. He was funny, very knowledgeable, and looked out for everyone. We couldn't recommend this tour, and him as a tour guide, enough! We would do this tour again for sure.
The breathtaking views were worth the hike and Martina was a great guide!
Amazing tour!! We loved our tour guide Angel! He was so nice, engaging and informative. The hiking was incredible and the views were picturesque. We made some cool new friends also! We are so glad we did this tour!!
I have just returned from this trip and i have to say it was amazing!! As a solo traveler the first thing i should mention is how professional, entertaining, knowledgeable, helpful and all round great the tour guides, Gloria and Angel, were. Brilliant! If you could bottle their enthusiasm Walkabout Tours would be taking over the world!! The trip itself is not to be missed. The scenery is amazing and the food is unparalleled. Yes there is a good hike, but that being said in my group were some people who were in their 60's and some who were younger, but not overly fit, and they were able to complete the entire day in 39 degrees heat!! Plus the opportunity to swim in Vernazza and dive in Monterosso is something that you will never have experienced before and are not likely to again. Do it!! For the price of this trip you not only get all of the above, plus the amazing photographs to make everyone at home jealous, but a sense of accomplishment and an uplifting of the soul. The trip made me fall in love with Italy... cant wait to go back!!
