Tour guides amazing, friendly and knowledgable. Cinque Terre is a must. The best tour ever. Highly recommended
This tour was fantastic! Not only was it everything as advertised - it was well organized and our guides for walkaboutflorence - Beatriz and Alex were phenomenal - The area and hike were gorgeous and lunch was one of the best meals we had on the whole trip! I would definitely fit this tour into your Florence plans - you won't be disappointed.
Just an amazing day. Great guide, great historians. Just amazing hike. Bus was comfortable and clean. No bathroom though. Travel was easy, got to swim in the sea. The villages were so beautiful. Thanks Freddie!!!!
I would highly recommend this tour, if you like hiking and nature. Cinque Terre has such awesome natural beauty and history! Aaron and his brother is the best guide I've ever met! Very knowledgeable and friendly. I'd join the tour again when I visit Italy again!
Alex and his brothers were brilliant - nothing was too much trouble for them. The walk was beautiful, he didn't bore us with commentary on the (long!) bus ride on the way to the first town, but kept us quite entertained. He has the perfect balance of when to speak, and when to stay quiet! The hike was amazing, beautiful scenery and everything well explained by Alex. Lunch - wow! Beautiful fresh seafood and then time for some gelato! In one of the towns, Alex gave us a 'tip' of how to get to the very top of one of the towers and look down - the view was spectacular. He was energetic and clearly loved what he does. He made a point of getting around to speak to every person in the group on a 1-to-1 basis at least twice. Brilliant tour, would do it again.
Superb day. Alex the tour guide was excellent. Made our final day in Italy most memorable
Just awesome, scenery, walk, our tour guides, the Cinque Terre and the lovely people. I would recommend this tour to everyone and the fitness level was not a worry either. Thanks so much for a truly wonderful day and look forward to more in the future. Thanks again Gaye
We were booked through Walkabout Tours, they were so knowledgeable such fun, awesome tour and great value for your money. I loved it and had so much fun.
The trip was well organized and the bus left on time. Freddy was a fount of history and information on the bus trip. The hiking was too much for us so Freddy arranged for bus transport to town and back. We were very happy with his professionalism. The lunch was excellent. Despite rain and late trains Freddy provided an excellent experience. Freddy was up-beat and kept every one happy. We will not hesitate to recommend your service and his to our friends. We were very happy to be part of group-o Freddy. Keith and Karen
An awesome tour - Alex was fabulous and everyone on the tour had a great time. They catered for some in the group who could not manage the hiking while the rest of us enjoyed the amazing views. The villages are all beautiful and this was one of the highlights of our trip. Lunch was fabulous although do make sure to fill your water bottle early on as they would only let us refill in the bathrooms once lunch was finished. Although the sea was a little too rough for the return boat ride we were shouted a wine at the end and had a fabulous day. Walkabout Tours are highly recommended.
Our guide Julian was very knowledgeable and friendly, and takes good care of the needs of the guests. The trip was very good, albeit the rainy weather (we went in mid October), and the towns are very quaint and colourful.The coastal views of the place was very beautiful during the hike from one town to the next. Do visit the liquer shop 'Cantina du Sciacchetra' when you are at Monterosso for a pleasant experience with free wine tasting and a very generous and friendly shopkeeper.
Fantastic trip - Angel and Freddie were excellent tour guides who provided great information and a fun day hiking at Cinque Terre. They obviously love their jobs and were so enthusiastic and made sure everything ran like clockwork but still ensuring we had a fun day. I would highly recommend this trip as it was a highlight of our travels over the past 6 weeks. Thank you!!!!
It was an amazing trip to Cinque Terre. The guide gave a very informative commentary on the way there and explained the programme to us very clearly. She is very experienced. We started from somewhere in Corniglia where we have to do a downhill trek. It took us approx 2 to 2.5 hours to complete the trek to the town Corniglia where we were rewarded with a sumptuous lunch. We spent some time there after lunch before proceeding to the next village by train. Although it was downhill, the path was narrow and rocky at some points. Fortunately I brought my walking aid which helped eased my sore knees. Along the way we saw the homes and garden / backyard of the people who are living there and it is amazing. Our trek mates were very helpful and cooperative in that they helped each other and waited for one another at every change of direction. As there are trains linking the villages the train and boat ride was included. As there were a few delays in the trains we got back to Florence at about 9.30pm. Fortunately we already had in mind where we wanted to have dinner after the excursion as we anticipated we would be late. I would recommend this excursion to anyone who wish to see the Cinque Terre and do a little trekking. We are very satisfied with this excursion as we had an awesome time. Thanks Viator.
Loved this trip! Everything was so well organized, Angelo and Sandra from Walkabout Tours were soo nice and made our trip so enjoyable. They were always with the group and made sure to increase interaction within the group. Cinque Terre is awesome and is a must see on your trip to Europe!
