Great tour guides! The hike was beautiful, the lunch delicious and enough time to see all the towns along the way!
Very good. Enjoyed the opportunity to see the cities up close and personal. The guides Jade and Francisco were warm and personal and added just the right amount of historical perspective of how the cities came to be and what the are today. Would gladly take any tour with either.
Only suggtin would be to not try and do all five cities or offer as a different more in depth tour of three cities. Would allow more time to rally absorb the liaison back,life style of these fabulous cities.
Great tour given by Johnny! Quick note that the hike is on Rocky, sometimes slippery, surfaces. Proper footwear a must!
We spent ten days in Italy recently and we must say, the day trip to Cinque Terre was the highlight of our vacation. We were very fortunate enough to have the perfect weather on the day we went, but more importantly, the tour was very well organized and planned from start to finish. Giada and Freddie were outstanding and we could not have asked for better tour guides. They kept our group moving, safe, well informed and on time. We were able to hit all five of the little towns and were able to spend a nice amount of time in each to allow for some sight-seeing, shopping, wine and gelato. The included lunch at the restaurant was amazing and the hike itself offered beautiful, breath-taking views that we will never forget. Definitely wear comfortable clothes and sensible shoes and travel light especially if you plan to do any shopping. We would definitely do this again!
Absolutely amazing. View was beautiful and breathtaking. Our tour guide Martina was very knowledgeable, friendly and professional. She kept everything on schedule. She made our tour fun! Our driver Sergio was an excellent driver. He made our trip safe. This team is excellent. We were lucky to have them. They took very good care of us.Truly an unforgettable experience. Thank you Martina and Sergio. You are the best!
This was a really great way of to see all 5 of the Cinque Terre towns. It's all day and the hike is not for the feint of heart but it's definitely worth spending one of your days in Florence doing. This particular tour is very well organized and logical. You are allotted some time in each town to explore but not so much that you're bored. The guides do a good job of giving suggestions for gelato, wine, and food. I would recommend this tour to any of my family and friends so I'm now recommending it to the Viator world. Just do it you won't regret.
P.S. Our guides Jada and Martina were DA BOMB DIGGITY.
This was a fabulous trip. The guides were incredible and knowledgeable. Everything was perfectly coordinated. The views were amazing. It is best to wear running shoes or hiking boots on the trip. The 2.5 mile hike is not overly strenuous but isn't for someone not in good health. This trip was the best tour I have ever been on.
This was an amazing day! The hike was exactly what we needed and it was nice that it was at your own pace. It gave us the perfect taste of the cities to know that we would absolutely come back to stay several nights in this coastal gem of five villages.
This was the best tour that we booked in our two weeks in Italy!!
Jade and Martina were so fantastic! It is amazing to be able to have such well educated tour guides... We could tell that they truly enjoyed their jobs. High fives all around when I came off the trail after a 2 1/2 hour hike up and down the mountain. WOW! what a fabulous hike! The course was quite challenging to this 62 year old traveler but offered spectacular views that should not be missed.
Such a fantastic tour. Great guide in jada. Plenty of things to do and see with the hike not being too strenuous. Loved it.
The tour guides were really entertaining. They told some good stories about the history of the area that we were driving through. They did a good job of leading us through and letting us know what to expect and when to meet. The hike is tough but fun. The cities are interesting.
Fun and stunning tour of all of Cinque Terre!! Matteo is a funny, energetic, and beyond friendly tour guide, who we would have loved to known longer. The towns are picturesque, the water was warm, and the hike was very fun and not hard at all for anyone who hikes as often as we do. The views from the side of the hills alone were incredible - we could not stop taking pictures!! The towns were a bit packed in late September, but it was really easy to keep track of the tour group. Trying the local cuisine is an experience as well! I won't give away any surprises...! Thank you very much Matteo, good luck with all your environmental efforts!!
Martina and Matteo were wonderful funny knowledgable and intelligent. Entertaining day great sights hiking strenuous. Very well organised- a must do.
This was definitely a terrific day seeing Cinque Terre. Our tour guides, Fred and Giada were wonderful - knowledgeable, funny, helpful and a pleasure. The hike was a bit more than I expected but very much a significant part of the tour. There was an option to take the train instead - so glad I didn't!!! This is a chance to see many of the tiny towns carved into the hillsides along the gorgeous Mediterranean coast. Don't miss this day if you have the chance!!
Really enjoyed the day, but be prepared to 'hike' over some quite rough ground. Suitable footware is highly recommended. Our guide 'Frankie' was fantastic. Even his 'bad dad jokes' were funny. He really made people feel at ease and helped people who didn't want to hike find alternative transport. We walked approx 10 miles but there were plenty of spots to stop to catch your breath and admire the view. All and all I would highly recommend the trip. Go for it.
Jonny was the best tour guide we could have hoped for! We learned so much about these beautiful towns and had a great time doing it. He prepared us mentally for the hike and luckily we all made it out alive! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Florence. It's a long day and a ways out to Cinque Terre but well worth it. We also learned about some of the towns on the way out to Cinque Terre and added a few of those to our bucket list for next time. We spent a total of 10 days in 5 different countries on this trip and both of us agreed this was our favorite place/day. Thanks for the awesome time Johnny and Sandra!
A must do tour if you are in the area! Beautiful views, awesome towns to walk through and the hiking wasn't difficult in my opinion at all: Food was fantastic and the guides were very helpful and conscientious not to lose you! The bus ride there wasn't too long and in a comfortable bus. Honestly one of the coolest trips I've done- my friend and I loved it!

Great trip. Guides were great.The hike wasn't easy, but worth doing for the views.We walked, caught trains and a boat to see the beautiful villages of Cinque Terra.Highly recommended.
Awesome Trip.....Lots of beautiful hikes along the coast and even some spots that were challenging. Both Johnny and Jiada were awesome......They were both very knowledgable and never let it get boring. Food at lunch was delicious and the entire excursion went as planned with no glitches.
An excellent day. The guides, Francesco and Jada, were very knowledgeable and personable. We didn't realize from the description that we would visit all five towns so that was appeasing surprise. Be prepared to climb a lot of stairs, there are 400 stairs to the second town, and the hike is mainly steps up and down. Lunch was very good, a selection of seafood antipasto and a pesto pasta dish. Highly recommend this trip!
Our trip, let by Fred and Molly, was a lot of fun. Their knowledge was quite good, and their enthusiasm was infectious. We started out fearing we'd have a rainy day with no boat ride at the end, but the weather gods smiled and we had a warm and bright day with magnificent vistas. The towns were ridiculously crowded and if I had it to do over again, I 'd try to go to different towns in the region and skip these most crowded ones. But lovely they were, and the excellent lunch that was provided, and the fun tour guides made, all in all, for a lovely day.
great tour guide. very friendly and knowledgeable. easy to approach and ask questions
Great tour guides, lovely lunch and would do it again when we return to the area
My Wife and I really enjoyed this tour. Place was so beautiful and I would recommend this tour to anyone. Tour guides were very informative and were very interactive with everyone on a person basis. One of the best places we ve been to.
