Wonderful day trip from Florence to the Cinque Terre. This trip was by far the favorite of everyone in our group and we all would highly recommend Viator. We were a small group of 6 friends who initially thought we could manage the planning ourselves but thankfully, smarter heads prevailed and we booked with Viator. Our guide was "Jack"....he was fabulous. He arrived on time, the van was clean and had plenty of room for everyone to be comfortable. During our drive to and from the Cinque Terre, Jack shared interesting information about the history and economy of the various communities we passed through. The Cinque Terre was stunning - a must see for anyone traveling to Italy. We chose to only visit three villages in the Cinque Terre so Jack suggested a quick visit to the Leaning Tower of Pisa on our way back to Florence. What a delight!! It was a long day but well worth well the time.
My daughter and I had a great time on this tour. Beautiful weather . I have hiked the Cinque Terre before, but it was nice to see the small towns from a different perspective. Our guide was very nice, and knowledgeable about the whole area. The only downside was how crowded it was.
We had heard so much about Cinque Terre that during our Florence trip, we just had to go. This was a great tour, we were with a group of 12 but divided up into 2 vans, very comfortable a nice roomy van with only 6 people in each and our driver was very knowledgeable about the area. We were going to visit 5 of the 6 cities and left Florence in the morning around 9 and returned back at 7:30. The drive in the mountains is beautiful, if you are at all squeamish about heights or get quezy in car rides, this may not be for you, or take Bonine because it is definitely worth the trip. We also had a lot of walking to do, no problems with that but you must be able to climb steep roads, yes up and down because the van would leave us near the tops of a village, then we would hike down or up, depending on the town. The views are just amazing, all that we imagined it would be plus more. I wish we would have had a little more time in each town but then it would have been an extremely long day. Just a good excuse to go back and spend more time in this beautiful, charming area though. We had time for a fantastic lunch in Corniglia, right by the sea. The water was very rough the day we were there so no boats were in the water so we could not do the boat trip to another town. If you look at some of the pictures of this area, the water is calm, this day the waves were breaking the rocks, quite beautiful. The cities are charming and just what you would think Italian villages would be, we would do it again and highly recommend it. .
This was a spectacular sightseeing your, with 5 different stops. Lovely boat ride and don't forget to get your free wine. Small group worked well as had a good chat with guide who was a friendly man. Bit hilly so be prepared to walk but picturesque. I recommend this tour, worth the money and Viator!
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!
LOVED this tour. Our guide, Giacomo, was very friendly and knowledgeable. The towns are beautiful and we had ample photo opportunites. The only downside is that we wished we could have spent more time there!
BRILLIANT BRILLIANT BRILLIANT this was most definitely one of the highlights of our entire trip. Yaris our guide was excellent and told us so much and was happy to help out and take you to things you wanted to see HIGHLY RECOMMEND
Loved this day trip to Cinque Terre. What unique and picturesque villages. Yaris, our guide, couldn't have been nicer. My only wish was that we had more time to spend in each town we visited.
Cinque Terre was the highlight of my trip to Italy *** If you enjoy nature and remote little villages, you will adore this trip. The small group was brilliant cause we never had to wait around and our tour guide was a classic. He was very informative and funny at the same time. Check it out ! It is fully worth it !
This was the highlight of our trip to Italy! Amazing and our guide was wonderful! Something you should not miss and well worth it! I cannot imagine trying to maneuver seeing this on our own.
Friendly and informative guide who gave great recommendation for lunch, and booked ahead for us. Time was tight but we still had some free time. The ferry trip was great, wonderful to see the coast from the water.
The tour guide was friendly and considerate, and spoke English.
The tour was the high point of our trip to Italy.
Highly recommended. Bring good sturdy shoes as there are some steep and stony walks.
This trip was certainly a highlight of our vacation. We shared a bus with a family of three children, so we felt like it was a private experience. Lorenzo was a wonderful guide. He made us feel that is was his job to make our day perfect!! He was willing to tailor the day to fit our needs and did not make you feel rushed. I would recommend skipping the last town and extending your stay in the previous ones!! (Less is more!) The last town is down a VERY steep hill. The weather was perfect and we were able to enjoy the boat ride!! It is truly a day to wind down and appreciate the beauty that will surround you. (That is another reason I would recommend asking if you could skip the last town and just enjoy the moment.) I would recommend a visit to cinque terre without a moment's hesitation!!
