This tour was the highlight for my entire holiday in Italy. Fabian the guide was excellent and even with weather, trains and boats not on our side he still made sure the tour was well worth it. Thank you !
Loved this hike. The tour guides from Walkabout, particularly Johnny, were brilliant - very informative and great fun, I felt they really enjoyed their job. They kept the group moving at a comfortable pace and enough time was allowed at each village for a get away from the group. The lunch which was provided in a hillside trattoria was absolutely lovely. So worth doing this trip....fabulous views and a lot of local knowledge provided by the guides. Would definitely recommend this to others.
I would highly recommend this tour! Jonny and Lynn were our tour guides and they did an incredible job! It was an added bonus that both of them were American which was helpful from a language perspective. The views were fantastic and the tour was very well organized. I would definitely do it again
We had great guides! It's a fun trip.! You have plenty of time in each city and wonderful views, and to top it off a boat trip that goes by all 5 towns! Definatly worth it.
Absolutely amazing trip! Fabian and Nora were very entertaining tour leaders and made this a worthwhile experience. They provided information on the bus ride and throughout the trip, as well as some comedy! The cities were beautiful and I thoroughly enjoyed it. This is not for everyone as there is quite a bit of hiking, but a person in average athletic shape should have no issue.
This tour was fantastic, and the guides -- Raissa and Molly -- were as sweet and helpful as can be. The day is fast-paced, and the hike was challenging. This coming from someone in good shape! We were able to see all five towns and take the boat ride due to good weather, and the sites were perfect. The tour is not a slow one where you stand around and listen to the guides give a history lesson. There is some history told on the bus ride, but while you are hiking and in the towns, it's really up to you to see the sights, keep pace, explore the towns, and meet at the correct time in the meeting spots to move onto the next place. This was a long day but a great one! I highly recommend the tour company.
Very professionally run. Johnny and Lynne were very friendly and informative. Would definitely recommend this trip to anyone.
Loved Loved this tour!!! Our tour guides Fabien and Nora were fantastic! They guided us through the 5 villages and yes there was lots of walking but worth it if you want to really explore the 5 beautiful villages. Fabian and Nora did a great job guiding us through and were extremely knowledgable helpful and friendly. Really enjoyed this tour one of our trips highlights!
This was a very eventful tour that lived up to all the positive reviews. Going to all five towns in one day required a tight a schedule, but that should be expected. Despite intense crowds, the tour was logistically sound. Freddy's humor and extensive knowledge made the tour very enjoyable.
This was my first tour with Viator and it was excellent. The local guides were both friendly and informative and kept the tour on schedule. Lunch was very good and the overall schedule was excellent. I will be taking more tours with Viator in the future.
My daughter and I took the Cinque Terre Trek yesterday with Fabian. He is a great guide, knowledgeable, organized and funny. Lots of history and fun facts. The hike was great, the weather perfect and the company memorable. Fabian truly loves guiding tours and helping others to learn more about his country. Thank you to the local tour operator and Fabian for a day filled with sights and memories to last a lifetime.
Another outstanding tour with Walkabout Florence! I would give it more stars if I could. My sister and I had a fantastic day on the hike. Our guides were Freddy, Johnny and bus drive Ricardo. They were excellent, funny and kept us well organized in the towns, on the hiking track and getting squeezing! us on and off trains throughout the day during peak season. The lunch was delicious and gave us the energy we needed to complete the challenging hike afterwards. The location was breathtaking. This was my 2nd time doing this tour and it was still unreal. Cinque Terre is beautiful and its a great way to experience it. Well done to Freddy and the boys and thanks Walkabout Florence! 10/10 :-

The tour was amazing.
Johnny was fantastic.
Seriously the most joyful person ever.
Always laughing, very knowledgable, very helpful.
Was worried about the hike after reading so many forboding reviews, but it was just fine and so scenic you are stopping quite a bit to catch your breath if need be.
DO not let any reviews deter you from taking this worthwhile hike.
DO not miss this tour, run by a local tour operator.
Cinque Terre- just beautiful! The hike was great. The views were spectacular. I have no other words, truly breathtaking. And, these villages are just lovely. The gelato in one of the towns was superb and worth the calories! My husband and I also had the best fried seafood calamari, mussels we've ever had. It was lightly battered and fresh, served on a paper cone with a lemon wedge. Wow!
Fab and Martina did a wonderful job guiding us through this day trip. They are fun, energetic and informative.
Amazing day! Our tour guide Lavi was very great, friendly and informative. I'm impressed how she remembered all names after the first round :
The hike was worth it as you can see very nice views from above. All towns Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza, Monterosso and Riomaggiore were pretty and colorful. Food was great and Ice Creams in Vernazza are to die for :
It was the highlight of our trip, I really recommend it
It was awesome! I really liked the guides, too! They were very experienced and we got to chat about a lot of things. I am not going to lie this trip was challenging but it was worth every second and it's the best way to see all the beautiful views of these amazing villages.
The day trip to Cinque Terre was wonderful. We got lucky with nearly perfect weather. I couldn't have asked for a better experience while in Italy. My guide Johnny did a great job. I wasn't expecting history and facts of the area while touring but he was well informed and kept the interesting info coming when there were moments between trains and on the trail. Incredibly helpful and I would highly recommend.
Great trip and the long bus ride was worth it. Our tour guide Fabian was the best we have ever had - very knowledgeable, fun, friendly and a true professional. The weather was very hot but the towns were beautiful and quaint. I would definitely recommend this trip but the 2.6 mile hike is no joke - fairly steep on rocky trails and if you are not in shape or have knee issues, take a bus/cab.
Our tour guides Fabio and another, I forget her name were both amazing. They were very funny and energetic, despite this tour being a long day and demanding of the body. We thoroughly enjoyed the long hike. The lunch was great too. Good job walkabout tours!
We had an awesome time on this trip and would highly recommend it for any one wanting a taste of the Cinque Terre! Our guide Lavinia was extremely knowledgable and a beautiful person as well. We couldn't have asked for a better guide of the area! Great value for money and heaps of fun!
Highly recommend this hiking tour! Wonderful and informative guides Martina and Lavinia. Comfortable, air conditioned coach bus transported us from Florence to Cinque Terre National Park. My18 year old daughter and I are both fit, and we found ourselves challenged with the hike. Hiking trails are not flat , lots of steps, uneven terrain and it was hot when we visited 2 weeks ago.Tour included lunch in a restaurant with wonderful views. Tour included train rides between towns and we were fortunate to have a wonderful weather , and was able to get in a boat and view the Cinque Terre from the water.
Amazing..Lavia and Fabio were amazing and so friendly...really like it
Fantastic day!! This was such a great trip and i'd recommend doing it to anyone. It does obviously involve a lot of walking with some of it being quite steep but all worth it for the fantastic views. The food was great and our hosts Lavi and Martina were fantastic!!
