This was a very nice tour with around 22 people. All was explained very well, the guide both on the bus and in Genoa were very good. Great boat trip to Portofino. Be prepared for crowds and heat. The boat can be very hot inside and if on deck take sunscreen or you will sunburnt for sure.
Genoa was a quaint little town with a very rich history and culture..and we enjoyed Portofino a lot! :

Great day. Franco was a superb guide and Mario a great driver. Everything organised like clockwork. The local guide in Genoa was great. Genoa is a bit grotty so perhaps the tour could leave a little later, skip Genoa and head straight to Portofino, allowing time for lunch there, as the restaurants looked fantastic.
Totally amazing! Genoa is just sensational with its history, scenery and renowned dish of trofie al pesto, it's just delicious. Portafino and San Margherite are both stunning, although Portofino is a playground for the extreme wealthy. Would highly recommend this long day tour.
Franco was fantastic - happy informative guy with a lovely disposition. Tour was great and covered all that was described if I had to be critical I would say less free time at each place would have allowed to enjoy the areas as well as getting home a little earlier. Many thanks!
Here again, I did not know what to expect with this location as you don't hear about it much as other cities. We had great weather and Francisco our guide was a joy to listen to the whole day, we had a local guide walk us around in Genoa. To see some of the city and to hear of the port town and it's history was enjoyable. A very nice time. We also went to Santa Margharita before going to Portofino which were both show stopper visits in my opinion, gorgeous towns and villas to look at. Another sunny day highlighted it's beauty and it was great to be on the sea once again! Another worthy visit.
Love this tour! and the tour guide was awesome!! : highly recommended
Both Genoa and Portofino are lovely cities and the buildings are so colorful. Our guide gave some history and was very good at keeping us all on time. I didn't know what to expect when I booked this tour but am so glad I did. The tour company is very organized. This was the 2nd tour I had booked with them and I was happy with their customer service.
Genova and Portofino are very different but very interesting for visiting cities. Local tour guide in Genova was very informative.
I can't express enough about this trip, Totally amazing. Genoa has so much history and Portifino is breathtaking. Do yourself a favour and take this trip .. My rating is 5 out of 5.
very good tour. Most of the tour was at Genoa and we had a local guide who was extremely passionate about her city. We then drove to Santa Marguerita Ligure where we took a ferry to Portofino. Portofino is everything you imagine it to be. Picture perfect. Could have spent extra time in SML and Portofino instead of so much time in Genoa which really was a very grotty city.
this tour was amazing we enjoyed our time .. although they should mention that there is a time that you can swim at santa margharita .. as they told us when we reached there so we werent ready
but overall nice experience and very beautiful places
I would highly recommend this tour, we had a wonderful time, it was worth every cent. We absolutely loved it we also had a wonderful tour guide and great transport ! Great day!!
We loved this tour. Great way to see a lot in one day! Loved the boat ride!
What an exquisite trip, all-around. Transportation was fluid, and guides were knowledgeable and showed us Genoa inside out. A much more bustling city than we expected, and fill with history and art. Portofino, Santa Margherita and Rapello are picturesque - postcard beauty, where you have to experience to understand the vibrant colors, beautiful water and fantastic people. We will come back for this trip again, a must-see!

This was a very nice tour. I wish we could have more time to explore on our own. Highly recommend it. Lots of beautiful places not enough time see all.
