very good tour. Most of the tour was at Genoa and we had a local guide who was extremely passionate about her city. We then drove to Santa Marguerita Ligure where we took a ferry to Portofino. Portofino is everything you imagine it to be. Picture perfect. Could have spent extra time in SML and Portofino instead of so much time in Genoa which really was a very grotty city.
this tour was amazing we enjoyed our time .. although they should mention that there is a time that you can swim at santa margharita .. as they told us when we reached there so we werent ready
but overall nice experience and very beautiful places
I would highly recommend this tour, we had a wonderful time, it was worth every cent. We absolutely loved it we also had a wonderful tour guide and great transport ! Great day!!
We loved this tour. Great way to see a lot in one day! Loved the boat ride!
What an exquisite trip, all-around. Transportation was fluid, and guides were knowledgeable and showed us Genoa inside out. A much more bustling city than we expected, and fill with history and art. Portofino, Santa Margherita and Rapello are picturesque - postcard beauty, where you have to experience to understand the vibrant colors, beautiful water and fantastic people. We will come back for this trip again, a must-see!
This was a very nice tour. I wish we could have more time to explore on our own. Highly recommend it. Lots of beautiful places not enough time see all.
This trip is just delightful!!! Simply the most unforgettable of my three trips in Italy. We had Sonia for a leader and she was great. In Genoa our tourist guide (antoinetta) was more knowledgeable than a university professor . The entire trip is picturesque and when we arrived to Portofino it was breathtaking . I highly recommend this trip. It is so well organized and beautiful and I prefer it from the cinque terre or como trip- although they are also lovely. If you have to cose one trip- chose this one
This is an excellent day trip. It is well guided and a good value for the money. It is a long day almost 12 hours.
The tour was everything i thought it would be-from the tour guide to the bus driver-i would have liked to spend less time in Genoa and more time in Portofino. However every thing was great
I originally booked this tour because of an interest in Genoa and didn't pay too much attention to Portofino, but it end up that both were exceptional experiences, and a tour like this helps you to cover a lot in one day. Genoa is a fast developing city, but it is built on cliffs and a bus tour like this will help you navigate the sites. The guide that gave us the walking tour of the city was exceptional and gave us a lot of interesting information in a clear, concise manner. The radio transmitters were a big help for those of us who lingered behind to take photos and later rushed to catch up without missing the commentary. We had time for lunch in the city before taking the bus and then the boat ride to Portofino, one of the classic sites often shown on guidebook covers. The walking tour was a bit of a hike for those not in good shape, but it was well worth the effort, because the time in Portofino was very relaxing and easy on the eyes.
I fell in love with Portofino! I was surprised at how much I enjoyed Genova also, our local guide there was very knowledgeable. I would have liked lunch in Portofino instead, but the pesto stop was very fun and it was a good mix and although a long day, very enjoyable! I will come back. Grazie Mille
We were provided with a knowledgeable local guide in Genoa . This was a well planned, interesting trip. Portifino is lovely !
Fantastic trip!! Guides were excellent! Very informative and helpful! Portofino is beautiful and the walking tour of genoa was fantastic.
We just completed our tour with Veronica, it was fantastic. Highly recommend this tour. The food stops we brilliant with a little history of the area thrown in. Veronica was very knowledgable and friendly, and you get to go to places that as a tourist you probably would never go to or see.
My husband and I took this trip and we loved it. The tour guide of the trip as well as the one in Genoa were both very good and informatively. The stop for lunch in Santa Margherite was very nice. Restaurants have very good food and prices. I liked Santa Margherite much better than Portofino. Try the pasta with pesto and the local Pinot Grigio.
Not sure where there main photo was taken from because i didnt see anything close to that. but there where fantastic views and sites to see.
Genoa was a dirty busy city and i did not enjoy the walking tour at all, the guides english was very limited and she walked much too quickly for us to see the other sights along the way. However Portofino was exquiste and we loved it very much especially the walk up to the church with views forever. My five star rating is for Portofino only.
