This tour was an amazing way to hike the Cinque Terre. Pall was an excellent guide who was not only enthusiastic about his job, but also committed and willing to give everyone in our group a memorable experience.
Halfway through the hike, Pall took us to restaurant Gli Ulivi in Volastra. Fantastic. The food was delicious and the staff were typical friendly and social Italians.
I highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to experience a different side of the Cinque Terre and gain some knowledge about the area as well.
Thank you for a wonderful 25th birthday experience, Pall!
Learned so much history and cultural information from Pall! I cannot say enough about what a great challenge, and learning experience this whole day was for me! Seeing the way that the people live, farm and thrive up close and personal is very different from just walking through all of it. Pall is a truly wonderful guide! I loved every minute of the whole day. Highly recommend this over just doing your own hike. He knows the best trials, and you learn all about the area. The ferry ride home allows you to see what you really accomplished along the hiking path too. Awesome!!!
Pall the Trekguyd was my private hiker and he brought me off the beaten path. He showed me many wild plants, herbs and informed me of a lot of interesting facts. We stopped for lunch in Volastra and he recommended their specialty of pesto -- was THE BEST pesto I've had ever! I would definitely recommend Pall.

This is a 'Must Do' for anyone visiting Cinque Terre. Our guide, Pall, was fabulous! We hiked for about eight hours through the vineyards and along the cliffs. We would consider the difficulty at easy/moderate. There are many steps and hills, but Pall is extremely conscious of your safety and comfort. Highly recommend this Excellent Tour!
Absolutely amazing!! Gorgeous hike and land but the true Ed to the entire excursion was pall! Best guide I have ever had for any trip. Totally makes the experience what it should be with tremendous knowledge and caters to whatever you want/need. Definitely use pall as your guide, you won't regret it
We had Pall as our tour guide who is extremely informative. We really enjoyed his company. The pace was easy for any age group. He took the time out the night before the tour to meet with us and show us around and advise on places to eat and little short cuts through Riomaggorie. Great guy.
Pall was an excellent TrekGuyd, very friendly and experienced. We met at Riomaggiore railway station as arranged and as we walked he took time to describe the history of this fascinating place and its people. The views were breathtakingly beautiful both on the trek, and from the passenger ferry on the return. We wholeheartedly recommend this trek as the perfect way to see the best of Cinque Terre.
This is the BEST activity that you can do in the Cinque Terre! Pall knows the area so well and will give you an insider's view of this beautiful region...something that you certainly won't get if you try to hike the trails on your own! I highly, highly recommend this tour! Best part of our trip!
The best hike ever. Pall was awesome in making this experience as educational as possible. You do have to be somewhat fit. It is a lot of walking and climbing steps. It is not as steep as I thought. It was doable.
Thoroughly enjoyed my hike with Pall. He truly knows the area inside out. I got breathtaking views of the villages from spots where there was no one else, ensuring a very serene experience. I would never have been able to find my way around the trail on my own. Just book it, you won and #39;t regret it!
Pall was fantastic! I would have never survived the hike without him! He is very knowledgeable and a great guide even in the grueling July sun! My husband and I enjoyed our tour so much we are considering booking another tour with Pall in Africa! We also just recommended this tour to my mother's friend who will be visiting soon. There is no way we would have learned the history and seen the amazing views Cinque Terre has to offer without Pall. Don't try to do it on your own- definitely book with him!
This tour was everything we were looking for. It was personalized to our interests and needs. Pall our tour guide was very knowledgeable of the area. Highly recommend this to anyone wanting a in depth view of Cinque Terre.
A fantastic way to see Cinque Terre! See the highlights, learn the history, take in the beauty, and rest assured you have seen the best bits of Cinque Terre in a short amount of time. Pall is awesome! I especially loved the quiet hike during peak season and tasting fresh items along the trail because Pall knows all the ins and outs to use your time wisely.
What an unbelievable adventure! This tour wasn't about trekking from town-to-town in Cinque Terre. It was about hiking the mountains of Cinque Terre. Our tour guide Pall took us off the beaten path, which was rather arduous for novice hikers. That said, I will never forget the sights and smells of Cinque Terre. One of my best life's experiences.
Paul was excellent guide. I had a wonderful time. Best thing so far on my journey
We had a great experience on our tour of the Cinque Terre with Pall. My girlfriend, her daughter and I hiked around the Cinque Terre with Pall. It was a fun and wonderful experience. We wouldn't have come close to seeing all the parts of the Cinque Terre or to experience it in the way that we did without Pall's guidance and knowledge. It truly made it an amazing and memorable day. I would highly recommend it to others.
My niece and I had the most awesome day trekking the Cinque Terre with Pall! We walked for the whole day except for a short lunch break where we ate delicious local cuisine and were introduced to lemoncino. We learnt lots about the history, culture and economy of the region and Pall shared lots of interesting stories about his experiences living there for over 20 years. An amazing experience that was over way to quickly and definitely highly recommended. My niece even wanted to do the trek again before we returned to Australia!
Our tour guide, Pall, was excellent and the tour across the towns was wonderful. Although we are not experienced hikers, the trip was exhilarating!
This is my first time to travel in Europe and I have to say that the trek to Cinque Terre is one of the highlights. Im grateful for finding this guided tour here in Viator. My friend and I were filled with an overwhelming awesomeness the entire time during our trek. There was a part in the hike where we got to pick blackberries, grapes and figs that goes straight to our stomach wonderful! And so much thanks to our amazingly crazy lovely guide, Birgit - who not only showed us the beauty of Cinque Terre but also, feed us with stories and trivia about the place and Italy itself. I think trekking Cinque Terre wouldnt be the same without them as guides. They are very knowledgeable about the place and know exactly where to get the best view to the beautiful Cinque Terre. And whats more, I experienced having lunch in a fine authentic Italian restaurant that changed my life forever heavenly!
This is definitely the best tour if you want to do a bit of hiking. The views were amazing and we avoided the crowded lower trails. Our guide, Birgit, was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. A little bit more information about the history of the area would have been a nice addition.
Paull provided great information whilst walking. We covered a lot of area and saw picturesque coastline.
We were expecting a more challenging ascent but we enjoyed our experience.
