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!!
Phenomenal trip. Went with my wife, sort of last minute. There were 52 people in our group full bus, but they divided us into two groups with one tour guide each. The preparation for this must be meticulous form the guides. They had us exactly where we needed to be at every step along the way, with crystal-clear directions. We were able to experience an incredible day without ever feeling rushed. Highly recommend the trip and the tour company Fabian, the guide for our sub-group, was amazing!
Our guide, Fabian, was excellent. The hiking is tiring but the views are worth it. Plenty of time to swim and shop. Highly recommend it.
The hiking trip was a great way to see Cinque Terre. We had a great time and I would highly recommend the hike to friends. Our guides Martina and Lavi were wonderful. The were very professional and they did everything possible to guarantee that we have the best experience possible.
Took 3 teenagers on this tour and they thoroughly enjoyed it. Fast paced - been there, done that got the tee shirt kind of day but perfect for impatient teens. The hiking was fantastic and our guide Molly made it a fun and interesting day. They went out of their way to make everyone feel included and individual needs accommodated. For the price, less than a day at Disney and far more memorable.
Absolutely amazing!!! The tour guides were excellent and very knowledgeable. The whole experience was perfect in nearly every way!

Johnny provided positive and upbeat energy to this tour, always checking in with customers and ensuring that everyone knew what was going on and had a good time. Cinque Terre is an amazing place to visit, and this tour lets you view highlights from all five main villages. Highly recommended!
This was an absolutely fantastic experience. Our tour guides really put in a lot of extra effort for our enjoyment. I spent most of the time with Johnny but also enjoyed my interaction with the other tour guide, sorry can't recall the name, but she studied biology and journalism. The whole tour was so well organized and done. Thank you!
My family and I took this tour the second week of August with Lavi as our tour guide. While my wife and I had been to Florence previously, our 12 and 16 year old boys had not, so we thought that it would be nice for the boys to see some sights outside of the City of Florence. And are we ever glad that we did! Overall, we all loved this tour.
Each of the five cliff-side towns were amazing, beautiful and unique. The views from the cliffside hike was truly spectacular! We also had just the right amount of time to spend on our own exploring several of the towns. I also found it especially interesting because we also were able to take both the local train and ferry, each of which provided a different perspective on local life. The lunch was perfect, both food and service were great. However, what really helped make the trip extra special was Lavi, who knew so much about everything that we saw, and really took a personal interest in ensuring that all on the tour were well taken care of and enjoying themselves. While on the bus en-route to and from Cinque Terre, Lavi was an endless source of interesting information about all that we saw.
This tour was certainly one of the highlights of our trip to Italy, and is one that I would highly recommend!!!
WOW! Easily the best tour I have ever been on. Freddie and Lavinia were 100 outstanding! I am so glad we did this. We were an enormous group, and Freddie and Lavi took the time to learn everyone's names, where we were from, etc. Their commentary was always insightful and usually very funny. They kept track of everyone across all 5 towns, despite how insanely busy it was. All of our train tickets were paid for and organized, and lunch was excellent. I'd do it again, just to hang out with those two :
Important note: This is NOT a cutesy stroll. It is a HIKE. I would consider myself very fit, and it was definitely a workout. I'm a firm believer that this was the best way to experience Cinque Terre, but if you aren't into it, you can simply train from one town to the next and meet the rest of the group when they arrive. Don't be the girl that shows up in flip flops-- seriously.

The tour covers all 5 towns and we experienced local train, boat and hiking/climbing with fantastic views. Lunch was awesome at the local restaurant with great food and service. Johnny and Freddie are funny, informative and well organized tour guides! Just wish we can spend more time there.
This tour was amazing! You see so much and don't have to worry about any of the travel logistics getting from one town to the next. Tour guides Fabian and Raice (spelling?) were fantastic!!!!! Cultured, smart, funny and warm - We would sign up for any tour they might lead in the future.
Our guides Freddy and Molly were both excellent. Went out of their way to make our experience quite pleasant. While the hike is a bit demanding, there is time to take breaks. It was a fun group and we met a few interesting people.
This day has been a highlight of trip so far! Lavi and Martina were outstanding, enthusiastic, knowledge and helpful. They really made the day what it was. Saw so much all in one day, I couldn't recommend this trip enough! And the food....amazing!
One of the best experiences of my life. The hike alone is a challenge in a great way. Do it when it's not so hot, I did this trek in 38 degree. Included lunch was amazing with fresh fish antipasto. Air conditioned bus ride. Boat ride, weather permitting. Good amount of free time to explore the towns
A fantastic day, the guides were excellent shout out to Freddie and Jonny and made the trip so much more memorable. Would definately recommend this tour.
OMG!!!! Johnny what a fantastic tour guide, fun, caring, passionate about his job and very serious about ensuring ALL his guests are well looked after. The Cinque Terre Hiking day trip was the highlight of our trip, not only did we challenge ourselves by doing the hike but we met such wonderful people along the way. The sights were amazing and the villages beautiful. Every step of the way our tour guide Johnny made sure everyone on the tour was okay and accounted for, escpecially when it was time to get on the busy trains!! Johnny you were amazing and if I ever do this hike again I will definitely be asking to be on your tour and Walkabout what can I say we booked 3 tours through your company during our Europe journey and each and everyone of them were unforgettable experiences with tour guides who really care and really know their stuff. Congratulations on a great company.
