We did the hike beginning of September, on one of the hottest days mid 30 degrees.
Our tour guide Johnny was the best. As soon as we set off in the coach, he had us in giggles with his charm and laugh. Down to earth Italian guy who made the 2 hour coach journey go by in minutes coming from someone who gets travel sick, I felt fine listening to Johnnys tips for the day ahead
Now for the hard parkthe hike. It is not for the extremely unfit. If you are unfit, you will still manage it as you can go at your own pace. Dont be scared of heights!! It is hard work with a lot of steps, you will sweat and think why have I done this in the heat of summer but your keep going as each town you visit is beautiful, facebook picture worthy views. Well worth all them steps.
As you do have lots of breaks, snacks and food to keep the energy levels up, the day was so much fun. The lunch we had salad, pesto salad was delicious. Just what we needed to refuel before more hiking.
Johnny recommends shops and tasty Italian treats in the towns and where is the best to go for a toilet stop lol. Also told us some Italian words and phrases that we made good use of for the rest of our Italian trip. He also provides maps and recommendations where to eat in Florence and Rome.
The hike was probably one of our best days out of the whole holiday, well worth the money.
If you are Johnnys boss reading this, he deserves a payrise, he really does keep you in giggles, I dont think we would of enjoyed the day as much if we had a different tour guide. 'Johnny boy says YO'
The one day Cinque Terre hiking trip was just great !!! Jhonny boy says yo and matheo were the best guide ever !!!! Thank you guys for this fantastic day in the flabergasting Cinque Terre...

This area of Italy is just incredible. I'm so glad we spent the day on this excursion! The hike was pretty challenging physically for me, anyway...I'm clearly not in shape!, but the views and the experience were well worth it. You don't have much time in each town, but there is no way to change that if you want to see them all. Lunch was fantastic! No issues with pick-pockets, etc. The guides know what they are doing...Jada was so sweet and knew everything about this region. We heard Johnny quite a bit and thought he was a hoot! Would absolutely recommend!!!!
Sandra and Martina were awesome!! They were knowledgeable and the tour was very well organized. It was refreshing to see tour guides who are genuinely passionate about their jobs and the rich history of the region.
Fantastic tour. It was well worth it. The scenery was fantastic, the food was great and the Citywonders guidesFabian and Freddy were magnificent.
An excellent day....lunch was delicious. Freddie was very knowledgeable about the area, and Italy in general, and we learned a great deal from him, The towns were beautiful, if occasionally, overcrowded. The agenda was well paced. The hike may have been a bit more intense than was initially described in the brochure, but our guide was very clear about it, and we enjoyed a sense of accomplishment for doing it.
Be prepared for a busy day, but it is definitely a great way to to see Cinque Terre if you don't have much time in Florence/the area. We loved it all! Wonderful hiking, lunch, and free time to shop and explore some of the villages.
Very nice ...Guides wer perfect Jata and Theon
We highly recommend this tour. We had once in a lifetime experience. The trip was perfectly organized, we have great time visiting Cinque Terre. Our guide Sandra was fantastic. She was very well familiar with the region, she has told us really interesting facts about the places, and so helpful and friendly with all of us.
Beautiful views and unique towns. The tour was well planned out and involved a lot to see and do. Be prepared to walk a lot! Tour guides were extremely fun and informative. Best tour guides of our trip.
