Great tour to end our vacation with! Jose was a very knowledgable tour guide and has a great sense of humor, even at 0700!!! He told us where to go to get awesome pictures and even more great views! We were able to go to four out of the five fishing villages and were lucky enough to have good weather! The bus was very comfortable and our driver got us safe to and from Florence! Great tour, great experience, great tour guide, great day!!! Highly recommend to others to do this tour....just check the weather first!
Cinque Terre is a five star visit. We took a bus from Florence into the middle of the 5 lands where we had a short 15 minute hike into town. From there we took rail to the far end of the lands. We had great weather and the boats were operating. So, our next hop was to ferry from one end of the Cinque Terre to the other. What a fantastic view of the five lands from Sea. Definitely a high lite. The picturesque multi colored towns that are embedded in the coastal mountains are so unique that it makes a lifetime experience. The trip was so good that I am passing on down grading the score because of very crowded and cramped bus ride to and from Florence. Even with that bit of uncomfortable trip, I highly recommend this side trip out of Florence.
Great trip with the excellent Julio as our tour guide. The itinerary was a good mix of being guided around and having free time to explore on our own. The Cinque Terre villages are gorgeous and it was fun getting around between them using both the train and boat. We were told that the boat portion is only available when the weather allows, and this happens 60 of the time so we were happy to be able to do that - the views are great from the boat. Julio led the tour in English, French and German - although, since there was only one party each speaking French and German he frequently handled those portions 1-on-1, which was nice for everyone - they received personal attention and could ask questions, and the rest of us were freed up to explore on our own.
Tour guide did a great job of making the tour enjoyable for a long day
A once in a lifetime experience. Tour guide was A-tops and he made it such a fun time all day. The views, the boat ride, the walk in the village were all so memorable. Best tour in Italy.

Beautiful, wonderful amazing. It rained a lot but never dampened my experience. I want to go again next year but in warmer period. So amazingly beautiful. Lovely travel guide in Fredirika. Explain everything.
We too three different day tours from Florence and this would have to be the second best, close to number one. Very interesting. Tour guide did a great job in keeping it informative and interesting.
Great, beautiful worth every minute of the bus,ferry and train rides. Bring your bathing suits for a deep in the Mediterranean.
Julio was a great guide made the day fun and the group became one people were hugging each other at the end of the day he made sure we had enough time everywhere and very informative
Our Cinque Terre Day Trip was fantastic due to our tour guide. She guided us through the colorful towns with so much enthusiasm. We mostly took trains which connected one town to another. However, the best part was taking a boat ride from the southernmost town to the northernmost because we were able to view all five towns from the water. We were glad that we added the lunch option because it included local tasty dishes. We also enjoyed sitting and talking to other people on our tour from other countries.
My favourite tour of our trip, villages so beautiful and the water was so clear and blue. Such a pretty area to visit.

This was a fantastic tour of the Cinque Terre considering that changes had to be made to the regular programme. Because of an intended train strike the whole tour was conducted by boat, and this was much better than the one we did three years which did involve the trains! Excellent guides, excellent tour!
Our tour guide Stefano was amazing getting us all on the bus, boat and trains. We had a beautiful day exploring the different villages.

Amazing tour! We visited so many 'must see' locations. Our tour guide was very capable at navigating the local trains and boats and did well keeping such a large group together and on time. The scenery between villages was amazing. The only improvement we could suggest would be a better choice of food for lunch in Monterosso. Would highly recommend this tour.
This was so much fun! Stefano and Mario were great guides who knew so much about the towns and were just fun to be around. It's a long day but they kept it entertaining. The towns/villages are stunning, I'm really happy I got to see them on my trip!
The most beautiful region in all of Italy! Skip the lunch option, you can find great seafood in Rio Maggiore!

The tour guide was good. But it was rather rushy to visit the 4 villages just in one day and the train was very crowded.
Cinque Terre is beautiful, and in order to see so much of it in one day, going with a guide and bus ride from Florence is a major headache saver. Because it is difficult to get from one of the Cinque Terre cities to the other, and it is a long trip from Florence, it was well worth our time and money to have a tour guide take care of all of those details. Our tour guide Antonella was very informative and kept us on pace. There is not much to do in most of the Cinque Terre cities other than look around, but in the city you stop for lunch, we highly recommend renting a chair and umbrella and going into the water.
Some of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen. Be prepared for a long day but 100 worth it.
This place is unbelievable. A must see of any trip in the region.
Everytime I turned one view was as beautiful as the last. Colorful and breathetaking. A must see when you visit Italy. It was a full day, the food was good and the people on the tour were very pleasant. Make sure you wear your best sneakers for this one. Much if it is up and down hill walking although we did what we could. We were on our own to tour what we wanted and of course shop!
