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!
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.
What a wonderful day trip! I was staying in Florence for the week and wanted a day trip to get into the countryside. The Cinque Terre trip was perfect. Our guide and driver, Mauro, was wonderful informative and fun. We had a lovely taste of these beautiful 5 villages, topped off by a ferry ride so we could see them from the water.
I would not hesitate to book a Viator tour in the future.
A very relaxed tour, allowing us to see the towns of Cinque Terre in a small group, without too much walking. The guide was pleasant, and we liked how small our group size was. Plenty of time to poke around the towns, but not so much that we were waiting around. Loved taking the ferry, especially!
Our guide, Luka was charming and well informed. He showed us breathtaking views and pointed out incredible and interesting facts and things to see. Cinque Terre was a breath of fresh air. Paradise!
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.
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!
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.
This trip was amazing!! The villages were beautiful and I am so glad we went with the samll group tour and we had a great bunch of people. Our guide Lorenzo was great and keep us all on track for the day! I would highly recomend this to anyone traveling to italy!!!
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!
There was only 5 of us and it felt like a private tour. Our tour guide Giacomo tailored the entire day. It was perfect 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.
Our tour guide was so knowledgeable giving us the history and unique information about each town to add to the experience. I would highly recommend this tour as a great way to experience Cinque Terre and its charm!
Our tour leader, Jonathan, was absolutely wonderful. His knowledge about Cinque and in general amaze us. Beautiful countryside, on time, one of the highlights of the holiday. I would tell everybody about this town.
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!!!!
It was a fabulous trip that we will cherish forever. Our fellow travellers from South Africa were very kind and considerate and our guide and driver Jonatahn and the two young lads were oar excellence. Highly recommended.
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.
Best part of our trip to Italy! We booked this small tour and it was amazing. Lorenzo, our guide and driver was very knowledgeable and made the trip fun.
Would highly recommend!

The tour highlight of my time in Italy. Great tour guide, who went out of his way to make this experience most enjoyable.
Loved the small group. Traveled by van. Left right on time. Driver explained the cinque terre villages and made sure we saw everything.
In spite of light rain it was an awesome experience.
