First let me say that I chose this tour because I wanted to see Cinque Terre and the surrounding countryside without having to rent a car. I wanted to travel in a small group in a van, not a large bus and I wanted to learn about the area. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour, it exceeded all of our expectations. Giacomo was our guide and he was a wonderful, knowledgeable host who grew up in Florence and was very familiar with Cinque Terre. He provided us with information, fantastic vista stops along the way and free time to explore the villages on our own. I could not imagine a more perfect day, it was the highlight of our European adventure!

Great tour. Our guide and driver Jacobo was excellent. He was a good driver as well as being extremely knowledgeable about the area. He was also very welcoming and likeable. The scenery is stunning and the boat trip was very good. We had a wonderful lunch looking out over the sea at one of the restaurants recommended by Jacobo. It is a long day but very worthwhile doing.

We chose the small group and appreciated saving quite a bit of time by not being on a coach. We were not keen to walk too far so we walked through 4 towns at our leisure with a train and boat trip included. Well worth the extra money.

Excellent trip. We saw much beauty and not at a mind numbing pace. our driver Fabritizio was very good, pleasant and knowledgeable. Thanks for fitting me in, I missed the scheduled trip the day before.

This was a fabulous trip. Cinque Terre is such a beautiful and intriguing area. Our guide, Jonathan, was greatly informative, personable, kind and a great driver! The only thing I would mention is that the amount of steep walking should be noted, not just to say wear walking shoes. But then perhaps we missed a statement to that effect. I would do this tour again in a heartbeat!

What a great day. As this was a small group and travelling in a minivan, it was so much better than a large tourist bus. Our driver/tour guide was Luca and he was wonderful. Being in a van, we were able to get into places that the large buses can't do. We also got into the towns with the van and didn't have to go by train. We had a really good group of people which just made this tour one of the best we did. Worth paying extra for.

Giacomo was the best tour guide!!! We had an amazing day and Cinque Terre was my favorite place I have ever been. A little concerned about the price but the tour was worth every penny!!! A magical day visiting 4 out of the 5 islands by private van, then boat between islands. Giacomo traveled amongst the towns and pointed out the hightlights and the history. Lunch at the selected restaurant was also one of my favorite meals amongst all of Italy- as well as the CIngue Terre Bianco wine. Giacomo continued to entertain us with the history of florence and all the cities we say along our journey. Loved every second and would recommend with out a doubt! Most see!

It was wonderful. Our guide, Lorenzo, was excellent. We learned a great deal about the region. The itinary was well planned out and executed. My husband has a bad back, so we were a .ittle concerned about the walking, but found it to be very manageable - as advertised.
It was a fabulous way to celebrate our 47th anniversary! Thank you.

Cinque Terre was a great day trip from Florence. We went in January, so a lot of the shops and stores in the towns were closed, but it was still the highlight of the trip. Our guide was great and managed to get us to the perfect look out just in time to watch the sunset over the water.

LOVED this tour! We had a party of 6, and because it was a small group tour, it was just us so the guide allowed us more flexibility. We toured 3 of the 5 towns which allowed us to really tour the cities and a more relaxed pace, which I would highly recommend. The views were spectacular!!!!

This was an excellent tour! Our group was very compatible and--mercifully--small. Our guide Max was funny and informative. In this tour you visit most of the small towns of the Cinque Terre and there are great photo ops to be had. Don't miss the limoncino!! Highly recommend this tour.

Our tour guide Jonathan was great. He made our day truly remarkable. The tour consisted of a small group of only 8 people. The 5 villages are outstanding. No picture could possibly make justice to the unique beauty of these towns on the Liguria coast.

amazing trip to such an amazing area. Great time of year to visit as there were no crowds. It was the guilds first time taking the tour and while his knowledge of what the tour offered was a little limited his knowledge of the region was first class. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

My brother and I did a tour of Rome, Florence, and Venice just recently. We stumbled upon this tour the day before the trip was to take place and booked it immediately. The ratings and reviews all spoke very highly of this visit and we were very interested in exploring Italy outside of the museums and churches. We absolutely loved our visit to Cinque Terre! Our timing was perfect because of the sunny and warm August weather. The seafood and white wine, which is what this region is known for, was excellent! If you are looking to take an adventure in a picturesque region and soak in the sun, this is the place for you!
