A friendly and knowledgeable guide helped to make for a very pleasant day. Even the quite long bus ride was made interesting by his commentary on the way. The villages themselves are very picturesque and well worth seeing. The lunch time stop was paricularly enjoyable, at least at the restaurant we chose fairly randomly. Although expensive this is a great day out for adults but the bus journey might be too long for younger children.

Best of the six tours we booked through Viator. Our group of 8 allowed for personal attention from our guide Luca. He knew everything! The day passed quickly and the walk on lover's lane was spectacular.

A well run little tour to get a brief introduction to cinque terre. If the weather is good and fitness permits, we think the hike would be more enjoyable. As it turns out the weather turned and we were very greatful to be able to jump on the bus.

Very heavy rain, so boat ride was cancelled. Approached the villages from the land side, in the pouring rain. By lunch-time it had cleared up, so we visited Porto Venere then. Very nice guide.

Nice day with Jonathan , well spoken local guide who has been in the industry for years, but not stale. He drove safely,was responsible for our schedule, and took time to be a real host as well. i highly recommend him and would be happy to use him for tours on another trip.

Matteo was a great driver and very knowledgeable about the area. The small group of 6 was perfect for the size of van. I had a great time and would recommend it to my friends.

This is a tour you can not miss! I went on this tour on Friday April 13th 2012. First the views are amazing and breathtaking! Some of the villages you visit are very short, but you only have so much time to see everything. Our tour guide was amazing his name was Jonathan and was full of information. He was funny and made the tour enjoyable for all. (Jonathan if you are reading this I am the one who got on the wrong train) I cant say enough about this tour it was beautiful and Jonathan our tour guide really made this a special encounter. Please don't miss out on a great and fun adventure. This was an A++++ tour! It was truly Amazing!

Let me first say how WONDERFUL our guide was on this trip. Not only was he a wealth of information about everything we passed during the trip, but he also cares very much about the comfort and well being of the people on his tour. I feel tourists should know that this tour involves an approximately 2 hour drive from Firenze to the Cinque Terre in each direction. Also, due to a landslide last fall, you will not see Vernazza on this tour, contrary to the description. We lucked out, as the other people scheduled to be on the tour with us cancel the day before. This resulted in a private tour for my daughter and I! Our guide gave us the choice of stopping in either Luca or Portovenere in place of Vernazza. We chose Portovenere and it was amazing! It's an upscale Cinque Terre and I loved it! The Cinque Terre is beautiful, but it was our guide that made this tour so wonderful. It was a rainy day, and he bought my five year old daughter an umbrella. He made sure to have the car ready and waiting for us so as to avoid getting wet. When my daughter reached for his hand to walk the streets, he didn't mind at all. Our guide is a pure class act. We invited him to lunch with us, during which he told us all sorts of knowledge of regional Italian foods and wine. The next time I go to Firenze, I will be directly contacting the tour company and requesting our guide. Grazie mile for such a wonderful day. This was by far the highlight of our week in Italy, even with the rain.

Our guide, Claudio, was congenial and knowledgeable about Cinque Terre. We had to take a train to the various villages, but due to a problem (not his fault), we missed going to the fourth village of Caroglia. To make up for our error, on the way back he took us to Portovenere, another lovely seaside town with a wonderful medieval section. It was a perfect day!

Very personal attention with the tour guide, who was very knowledgeable. A beautiful group of villages. It was much easier to get there with a guide versus figuring buses and trains, etc.

the tour was an eye opener! Luca our tour guide was good at telling us about the history of the area and the many interesting facts.We appreciated his commentary and knowledge. The sightseeing was spectacular and the pesto we had in one of the villages was the best i have ever had. Absolutely thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. WELL DONE GUYS!
