Tour was well organized. Our tour guide, Lucca, was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was an enjoyable experience and worth doing.
Fabulous day, lavinia was great guide, supportive, encouraging, informative yet relaxed, would certainly recommend this tour.
We took this wonderful trip in August of this year. Our tour guides Angel and Julian were great. Both were very knowledgable about this beautiful part ogf Italy. We could not have seen so much in one day on our own. A highlight of our trip to florence!
One of the high points in our trip to Italy! The villages and Mediterranean were of course beautiful. This was a nice change of pace from the cities and museums. Our guides were fantastic. As Freddie said, we have no problems only solutions. There were several of us that decided to skip the 2nd part of the hike after lunch. There were no judgements, Fabian stayed with us and took us by train to the next stop Vernazza. It was a perfect place to spend some extra time waiting for the hiking contingent. Time for the dipping our feet in the gorgeous Mediterranean, and sipping some Wine. Freddie also gave us lots of tips as to what to try along the way in each town. We did get to take the boat and that gave us some breathtaking views. Such a good tour. Be prepared with camera and clock, though Italians always run late, you need to be ontime for Trains and boat to take advantage of all that is planned.
Our trip was ONE truly amazing experience. Angel was a great host and guide for the day, super funny and relatable. He was one of the highlights of the hike. Of course i had no idea what i was in store for, but if you like adventure, HIKING, and amazing views don't think anymore and get this trip. You will absolutely love it! and you will feel very accomplished afterwards!!! 3 The Annunziata's
An absolute 5 star rating! I don't think that it would be possible to do Cinque Terre from Florence without a tour group (driving, parking issues) and the tour company was absolutely top notch. Fantastic experience and I would highly recommend this tour company to anyone. Very personable, energetic and engaging commentary; tried to be mindful of the varying fitness levels (people! listen to them and wear proper shoes please - it's a hike!); great food; spectacular scenery and experience at tremendous value. Exceeded all of our expectations in every way.
Well organised tour, beautiful lunch, great scenery and boat ride and the optional wine tasting capped off a brilliant day.
Had a wonderful time with Martina and Fabien. Well planned and informative tour. Challenging yet manageable hike through beautiful towns. Well paced and surprisingly excellent meal provided. Great variety of activities presented by warm, intelligent, thoughtful guides.

A incentive-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a beautiful area of Italy. Excellent tour guide (Freddy) who was enthusiastic, customer-focused, and very informative.
Amazing tour, amazing guides and amazing scenery...it was the best
It was unbelievable. Great guides !! great fun!! great lunch!! must do trip worth while. Just wear good shoes. Highly recommended.
This was one of the best parts of our trip. The hike was a little challenging but not difficult. After the first half (about an hour) we had an amazing lunch and then about half the group decided to take a train rather than hike the 2nd half. Swimming in the Ligurian Sea was fun. Lots of food and great beers to replenish spent energy.
Loved it! Hiking, boat ride, and lunch were all enjoyable. Lavinia was wonderful at coordinating the group and offering things to do with the limited time in each of the five lands.

Our guide, Sandra, was excellent in how she immediately learned all our names, was able to keep track of everyone's varied paces and encourage us as we hiked. She paused to teach us about the agriculture or culture, giving some rest time as she did. Whips trip was one of the highlights of our time in Italy. The directions to find them outside the train station were clear and easy and the entire operation went off without a hitch. Well done!!
Great tour. Through the day you take at least 3 trains, 2 buses and possibly a boat ride. Very interesting small towns and great views. Lunch was quite different than anything I've eaten but very good with the exception of one small piece of fish with lots of bones. Tour operators had great guides. One thing to note. The hike is a hike not a walking tour. You need closed toe shoes. It was a great hike but only take this tour if you can walk up 441 steps for lunch and 2.5 Km (about 1.5 hrs) after lunch up and down hills and steps on slightly rocky terrain. They offer bus and cabs around both of those part but then you miss the fantastic views. If you are moderately fit this one is a must do. If you have bad knees, back or use a cane ..... take the bus tour instead of the hiking tour.
