We had an excellent time! Our guide Leonardo was very friendly and knowledgeable and accommodated us in every way. We really appreciated the personal attention and the private small group experience. It was one of the highlights of our trip!
This was a fantastic day trip to some spectacular sites. Our tour guide Lucca as very personable and knowledgeable and made it a great day for all. It was nice that all 8 of us could fit in the luxury Mercedes van with ample room and comfort. Being a private tour, Lucca was able to arrange it so that some the group hiked between two of the villages while part of the group enjoyed a longer lunch and shopping in one if the villages. We did the Pisa stop on the way home, climbing the tour and viewing the Cathedral. Adding Pisa makes for a longer day, but very worthwhile.
One of the most beautiful places to see and using a tour guide and driver is a very smart move. They are very well informed and really take care of your interests and needs.
THIS WAS ONE OF OUR BEST TOURS IN ITALY!!!!! We were picked up by our driver, Leonardo. He was a wonderful young man -- friendly, efficient and filled with knowledge of the area. We were four friends 40's-50's staying in the Florence area. Leonardo picked us up at our doorstep and couldn't do enough to see that we enjoyed our tour. He gave us several options of which towns we to see and how we could see them. We chose the option we liked best and did 3 of the villages via boat with a nice leisurely lunch stop at a fine restaurant with great food and remarkable views in Vernazza. Leonardo made a reservation for us and was the most accommodating tour guide/driver you could ever wish for. We upgraded for the Pisa option. This too, was absolutely fabulous.
This tour may be a little pricey, but it is worth every penny. You will not regret a moment of this experience. WE ALL HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TOUR!
Leandro was a great guide providing insight and interesting information throughout the day in great English so thanks to him.
We truely recommend this trip and were lucky enough to enjoy perfect sunny weather and sea conditions for the boat trip - this is the best way to view the sights. The villages are really beautiful - a good tip would be to skip lunch at a sit down place and catch a bite when exploring - we would chose this option to have more time to browse. Monterossa old part and Manorola were our personal favourites
Our day trip to Cinque Terre was wonderful. We were 6 ladies from Texas that had never been to Italy and Marco was an excellent guide, a perfect gentleman and took care of all of our needs. He helped us with train tickets and made reservations for us at a wonderful restaurant with a breath taking view. I would have loved to spend more time in Cinque Terre but this was a great first look with hopes to return.
I would highly recommend this tour.
Marco was excellent! Right on time to pick us up and a joy to be with for the day. Encouraged us to take the ferry ride and then made us lunch reservations at a great place. We took the train and met him in a different village on the way out. Then on the way back to Florence he suggested we stop in the town of Lucca which was very interesting and an extra surprise. Strongly promote this private day trip from Florence!
It was a wonderful trip with our guide Alex, we are having an excellent trip with him. The place have an amazing view and its fun to visit it.
Luca was so friendly, accommodating and informative. Really made our trip so enjoyable as he went above and beyond getting Li ch reservations and tailoring the trip to suit our groups wishes. Thank you Luca
This tour was AMAZING!! Luca was a fabulous tour guide who made you feel as though you were traveling with a friend. My family of 4 (kids 8 and 10) has the best day.We added on Pisa on the way back to Florence and were so glad we did. Book this tour. You won't regret it. Worth every cent! Thanks Luca!!
Luca was our tour guide and he was absolutely fantastic. He was knowledgeable, friendly and very accommodating. Although we have been to Italy many times, this was our first trip to Cinque Terre and it was all that we thought it would be and much more. The views are breathtaking, the people were kind, the food was amazing, and again Luca made it worthwhile. A must see with the best guide!!
Our guide, Luca was amazing. He told us many things about the area as we drove to Cinque Terre and he helped us plan a strategy to visit several of the villages in the area. He walked us down into the first village to make sure we knew where to catch the ferry and agreed to meet us in Monterossa in about 3 hours and set a reservation at Micky's which is a beautiful restaurant overlooking the end of the town and the ocean. He was very patient as my 2 daughters wanted to spend a little more time at the beach even though we had planned to stop in Pisa on the way home. He drove us to Pisa and waited while we walked around and explored the sites. We really appreciated his patience as we arrived back in Florence about an hour later than anticipated. Both Cinque Terre and Pisa are worth visiting and Luca made our trip special.
My brothers and I took a tour with Rubens on July 6. The tour was the highlight of our trip to Italy. We could not have asked for a more perfect guide. Rubens was extremely easy going, and after a few hectic days in Rome in Florence, it was nice to have a relaxing trip on the coast. Rubens catered our trip to the activities we were the most interested in. We ended up choosing the trekking and ferry option, which was very scenic. Rubens' English was excellent, and he informed us throughout the drive of the significance of the areas we traveled through. Rubens also booked us a table for lunch at a restaurant on the water. The seafood was fresh, and we were immediately seated at our table. Outside of the sites, the tour was very enjoyable because Rubens gave us a one on one perspective of Italy from an Italian. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to visit Cinque Terre. We had so much fun!
What a wonderful day! We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and highly recommend the experience. Luca not only provided wonderful details about the area and sights, but also made arrangements for us to have lunch at an AMAZING restaurant during our outing. Luca also suggested we include Pisa on our tour, which initially I wasn't too interested in doing. I am so happy we took his suggestion! Pisa was great!
Luca was a wealth of knowledge and we have him to thank for several highlights of our time in Italy this summer.
We spent the day with Leonardo. He was incredibly considerate, patient and knowledgeable and extremely courteous. He was punctual and did a great job showing us the sights while also making sure he wasn't overly present so we could enjoy some time in each town. He really made the difference. He made lunch reservations for us and told us where to get the best gelato. The area of course is absolutely gorgeous. Definitely a must-see if you are in Florence and ask for Leonardo!
We had an awesome day with Alex our driver and tour guide. He was very friendly and accommodating to what we wanted to do. We decided to do the hike and take the ferry back at his recommendation and we absolutely loved it. The hike is not difficult but it isn't exactly what we would call easy. Make sure you where good, comfortable shoes. There is a nice little cafe with amazing views about halfway through the hike where we stopped for a cold drink. At the end of the hike there was a nice restaurant with awesome views of the sea and town. It was a very nice day and I would highly recommend this tour.
Ruben was a wonderful guide. I would highly recommend this tour and company. We loved every minute. They made an awesome recommendation for lunch and the drive was safe and very pleasant. At the last minute, we learned 2 cruise ships landed so they rearranged our day to make sure we didn't hit the cruise crowds. It was awesome. My kids at 25 and 27 were amazed and enjoyed the entire trip as well. Wonderful! Wonderful!
Rubens picked us up at our apartment in a beautiful, spacious Mercedes van with wonderful air conditioning on a hot day. This tour was spectaculat. The ferry ride provided a beautiful view of the towns and our lunch at Bella Forte in Verranza was a dream. Perfect day! Worth every penny!
We had a great day touring to Cinque Terre with our driver Marco. Highly recommend this tour. We took the ferry option , also recommended. Our driver arranged a lunch reservation at a very nice restaurant after the ferry. We added the Pisa option, which is worth the addition , on the way back to Firenze.
Luca was a wonderful guide, very informative, attentive, and a great driver. Cinque Terre was the highlight of our trip to Florence and surrounding cities. Luca made lunch reservations for us that turned out to be delightful, particularly when it started to downpour and our table was under an overhang so we didn't get wet. Boat ride was great too.
My husband and I traveled with Luca from Florence to Cinque Terre and back. He was so personable and knowledgeable and took good care of us all day. He was more than willing to customize the trip if we wanted. If we return to Tuscany, we will definitely request him.
Excellent. Luca was knowledgeable and friendly. Knew where to go and best time to be there. He was on time for pickup and went at our pace. Made for a very enjoyable day.
Francesco, our guide was such a gentleman!
My mom had a hard time with all the walking, and he was so understanding and kind.
He was an amazing driver and very knowledgeable about the area.
Also, recommended a great restaurant for lunch.
I would highly recommend Francesco as a tour guide - and a really nice person!
Enjoyable day touring to Cinque Terre
with stop for wine tasting and various pesto sauces and stop at Pisa
5 of us throughly enjoyed our private tour today with Luca. He was on time, informative and paced our day perfectly. It is very clear that he not only loves his job, but is very proud of this region. Without a second thought, we highly recommend him for a tour. 5 stars plus.
Highly recommended. Luca made the tour very interesting with his stories and knowledge of the area. Not to be missed.
