The Cinque Terre hiking trip exceeded all of our expectations. The day started out raining, but the moment we got to Cinque Terre the rain had cleared up and the schedule went as planned. The sights are stunning and Martina and Fabio were great guides. Would do again in the future and would recommend to all of our friends!
We had an excellent time. Not really knowing what to expect as we had not been on a tour, but it was more than we expected. It was well organised, informative, picturesque. The tour guide, Julian, was fantastic and we were very lucky with the great group that also went - especially Peter - thanks for the glass of bubbly :)) Would definitely use this tour company again. Thank you Julian, they have a gem working for their company.
This was the highlight of our trip to Italy, which included Venice, Florence, and Rimini. We were lucky to have a warm and dry day to hike the trail between Corniglia and Vernazza. It was slightly challenging (and I'm 60) but not overly streuous or dangerous. The lunch in Corniglia was fabulous, the best seafood salad I've ever had. Cinque Terre is stunning and if you can make the time to go you won't regret it.
We loved our Cinque Terre tour. Angelo our guide was great. He was extremely knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. The tour was beautiful, allowing enough time in each stop to look around. The trek was great, with the most amazing views - glad it was mainly down hill though - many steps/stairs. We had a great time and would thoroughly recommend this tour, a great way to see the Cinque Terre in a day!
Wonderful, amazing and so picturesque. Our guides, Freddie and Angel from Walkabout Tours were excellent. They were both funny and so accommodating. The day/weather was nice when we did the tour in October. What a perfect day for this tour. The way this itinerary was arranged was fantastic. I will never forget the very delicious lunch in Corniglia. I enjoyed the freshness of all the food. Although we missed the boat ride due to rough seas, they accommodated us for a drink at a restaurant in Riomaggiore which was very close to the Via de'll Amore. It turned out perfect. Do not miss the very good gelato in Vernazza which was timed perfectly after a long hike from Corniglia. The views are spectacular and I suggest to take this tour to see and do things in Cinque Terra in a limited one day time. Thanks to Freddie and Angel for making this fun and exciting for all.
This trip was absolutely fabulous. The weather was perfect and we were able to go on the boat ride at the end of the day. Our guides, Martina and Fabio were excellent: organized, knowledgeable and fun. It was our 35th anniversary that day and was very memorable
Great experience but got caught in the rain half way through the hike. Getting down was treacherous but we made it without any mishaps. Many of us were soaked through and had to spend the rest of the day like that. It was an unfortunate situation but Cinque Terre was brilliant in all other ways.
Great experience, even though it rained during our hike.
Tour guides Sandra and Fabby were great. Made the bus ride
enjoyable by giving us a little history on the passing towns.
Luca was a great guide, very diligent in keeping track of everyone.
The hike was a bit exhausting but results in a gorgeous view of Vernazza against the mountains and the sea.
2.5 hrs on the bus with great commentary on the way, train from no. 2 to no. 3 town in Chique Terra, great lunch followed by a walk which requires a far degree of fitness from town no. 3 to no. 4 town a train from town no. 4 to no. 5 a boat trip back from town 5 to no. 1 town where we had wine tasting and a great relaxing time. From here we caught a train to town no. 1 to La spica where we met up with the bus for our return back to Florence at around 2130 great day in all.
My sister, my son and I send a wonderful day in Cinque Terre. This place is incredible, everywhere you look its is beautiful. The food was good and the white wine is great. A special thanks to Fred and Angelo, our guide. They are both dedicated to their work. We were in good hands all day. I would recommand this tour with them anytime.
Couldn't ask for a better tour guide than Freddy...the guy is born for the job. Thanks man!
I can never imagine the beautiful of the sight! Even the hiking part was a little bit hard, but it is worth! Believe me
Our tour guide Luca was fantastic. He is very talkative, and has a great knowledge of the area. The bus ride up to La Spezia was fun and he kept it very interesting. The tour itself is good. My wife and I wanted to go for a hike, but not overdue it. We are in our fifties and just wanted to go up there, see it and get in some excercise. It was perfect for us. Luca recommended some places for seafood and wine while we were on the hike that proved to be spot on. In addition, the lunch that the tour provides is really great.
The excursion was a great deal of fun and the area was indescribably beautiful. Our guides, Fabian and Gloria, were funny and entertaining and very knowledgeable about the area. They maintained their humor and upbeat attitude despite some frustrations with the train schedules. The only draw back is that it is a lot of ground to cover in a day and the amount of time available in each of the villages was limited. However, it was an opportunity to see some incredible scenery and meet new people. The hike from Corniglia to Vernazzo is physically demanding but well worth it for the scenery. I would highly recommend this excursion for the exposure to this incredibly beautiful part of the country.
