The scenery is beautiful, the towns picturesque, our guide Jonathan was helpful and well informed. We had a relaxing and enjoyable day.
My family and I went on this tour earlier this month at it was great! Our tour guide, Yaris, was the best! He was very knowledgable, organized and very friendly! We enjoyed having him take us through the different towns throughout the day. We would most definitely do the tour again! The only downside was that we wished we had more time in each place to visit, but nonetheless worth doing!
This was a great trip! Our guide was very patient and understanding of the disabilities of several of the people in the group. He negotiated many steps, a train, and a boat for us. It was a great trip and well worth the money. This trip would not have been possible without Yanis. I would give this trip five stars.
Andriano, if I have his name right, was excellent host. He made the day trip worthwhile and I would recommed him to anyone for Cinque Terre villages. Tell him his Kapitano says hello!! Viator has an excellent ambassador in Andriano and he should be appreciated by the company. Bangu Masisi from Netherlands and South Africa.
Can't ask for more! Our guide gave us some great tips food, gelatos and was very knowledgable! we enjoyed that tour. It's one of the most beautiful place in the world! nice boat trip, nice van trip. Don't miss that!
An absolutely amazing day! Having a small group was definitely the best way to go - such a great group of people and our wonderful driver/guide Yaris was excellent very informative and ensured we had everything we needed. There was enough time to have a quick visit to 4 of the 5 villages. The mini-van was comfortable and the driving skills were impressive on a very narrow road!.I am very thankful Yaris was driving, and not any of us! It was nice to be able to experience the train and the boat as well. Trip was very well organized, and this tour is a must see ... Don't miss it! For sure 5 stars!!!! Thanks for a fun experience.
One of the most picturesque coastal areas I've visited. We enjoyed spending the day with our guide Lorenzo who clearly loves what he does and shared lots of information during our drive about smaller towns that we passed along the way. The coast is beautiful and we walked through all the beautiful little villages popping in and out of the shops. You will have a chance for a swim and it looked great! Wear your suit and bring a towel, you won't want to miss the chance!
Jonathon was an excellent guide. The towns were beautiful and we knew that we were not able to spend hours in each place but felt the times allotted were appropriate. Bring swimsuits if you would like to swim. Bring towels as we helped the local economy with our towel purchases!
I highly recommend this tour. Giacomo was a great tour guide and driver. . He made the long drive from Florence to Cinque Terre go fast by pointing out the sites to us and sharing interesting information on Italy. He was an exceptional driver, managing the curvy narrow roads with skill as we navigated our way along the coast. We stopped in three cities. He made sure to tell us where to meet and made sure we made our train and boat connections between the cities. Each was unique and lovely. Lots of photo opps for great memories. The boat ride between Rigomaggiore and Vernazza was the highlight of our trip. We got a great view of the cities from the water. We had lunch in Vernazza and then on to Corniglia before getting in the van for the drive back to Florence. Wonderful experience. Highly recommend
Our meeting point was very easy to find and right from the start , our guide Adriano was very friendly and very informative. The whole day was absolutely amazing and the places and sights we saw were just breathtaking. Everything ran very smoothly and the small group was just perfect. We highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Florence . It was a perfect day.

Has to be on your bucket list!!! The pictures I took some with us in them are from magazines... You have to see this place in your lifetime. We were able to ride in the boat as the water was calm enough. That was an experience! You can't put what you see here in words and our guide was excellent and very knowledgable!
Cinque Terre is breathtaking - don't miss it! Our guide, Fabrizio, was excellent. He navigated our group of 8 through the summer crowds effortlessly. He recommended that we have lunch in the Bell Tower restaurant and called ahead and made a reservation for our family of four. When we arrived, we found the best table in the restaurant reserved for us. The service was extremely friendly and the food was fantastic. I am so glad that we booked this day trip. It was a wonderful day and meeting Fabrizio was a treat!
Jonathan made this tour more than I could have hoped for!!! His knowledgable and helpful approach always had us in the best position to really enjoy our limited time at the Cinque Terre! I could not recommend this tour highly enough, the area is awe-inspiring and breathtaking! I would definitely ask for home when I return to Florence again for another tour!
Thank you to all the staff for making it such a great day!

Our guide/ driver Johnathan, was very professional in his communication and driving. Made friends with all 8 tourists on his bus. Very enjoyable day.
Wonderful tour. Lorenzo was an excellent driver as well as an informative tour guide. We had plenty of time in each of the four beautiful scenic villages and to also have a delicious lunch on our own of the local, not triofe al pesto.
Visually stunning! Our driver/ guide, Sergio, was knowledgeable, interesting, and a terrific driver no mean feat on those winding roads. Really glad that I went in the van with a small group, especially after walking the hilly terrain in Cinque Terre. I was able to get terrific photos and spent a wonderful day in the company of six friendly tourists. Had a wonderful lunch at the outdoor restaurant suggested by our guide. I LOVED this day trip!
Incredible, Breathtaking and enjoyable experience. I recommend Cinque Terre 100 to everyone who goes to Italy. It's absolutely spectacular. I regards to the tour... our driver was very friendly and fun. The dinner was delicious and the wine was fantastic.
Highly recommended. Our guide was friendly and informative and the group size was ideal to get to know each other and feel comfortable. The tour was well organised, we really covered a lot and had a totally memorable day.
An absolutely brilliant day! Having a small group was definitely the best way to go - such a great group of people and our wonderful driver/guide Paulo I hope I got that name correct! There was enough time to have a taste of 4 of the 5 villages. The mini-van was comfortable and the driving skills were impressive on a very narrow road. It was nice to be able to experience the train and the boat as well. A must-do trip We loved it!
Long drive but worth it- tour guide excellent- very pretty area to visit
Yaris was an excellent tour guide, very informative and ensured we had everything we needed. I am very thankful he was driving, and not any of us!
