This tour was amazing. EMILIO WAS OUTSTANDING AND WONDERFUL! Anyone coming to this area should take this tour.
Fantastic experience of a beautiful area!
, Aug 2022
Everything about this tour was great, especially our guide Matteo. He was quite possibly the best tour guide we have every had. He was passionate and educated about the area and his country. We loved the mix of riding the train and ferry to give us a true exposure to this beautiful area. Matteo catered to our needs and near the end of the tour offered us the option of more hiking or relaxing time to shop. We chose shopping as we were exhausted. We will emphasize that this tour does require a lot of walking great distances and over steep and uneven paths. You need to take this into account if booking. We feel this is clearly stated in the tour description. Wear proper footwear! So many people hiking in flip-flops!
awesome Tour
, Aug 2022
Superb tour including train, boat ride and walking tour conveniently starting at the train station. Our guide Giovanna was excellent, vibrant, and very knowledgeable. Tour includes stops in three of the 5 villages and you can see all 5 from the boat ride. The stop in Monterosso (the last stop) is the longest, providing a time for lunch and free time. It should be noted that there is a great deal of walking and stair climbing that you can regulate with your guide. Definitely a must see area.
If you’ve been to Florence Cinque Terre is a great alternative

Beautiful towns to see. Worth going. July is hot and walking around can be tough for people in their mid 70s when the temperature is close to 90 degrees F. Strongly recommend seeing them by boat rather than by train if water is calm enough. Seeing the colorful towns and the landscape from the sea was amazing. Disappointed with our tour guide. He didn’t know the towns very well so we made all the decisions on where to eat and what to see.

Hi Larry, Thank you for your feedback. I am very glad you enjoyed our Cinque Terre tour. You are absolutely right, it can be very hot in summer and the places are so beautiful especially from the sea (and that's why we include the boat part in the tour!) Regarding your comments about the tour guide, I am sorry you weren't happy, here is what he says: "It was a group of 6 people and they had very different opinions on how to approach the tour. As a tour guide I was telling them where we could go and what we could do. But they couldn't agree on anything and there were many discussions between them (especially about where to eat!). So I thought that the best thing was to let them decide what they wanted to do. I have been a tour guide in the area for more than 10 years and I know every corner and every rock in Cinque Terre. I was just trying to accommodate everyone without being rude. Sorry if it came out as lacking knowledge or leadership" Larry, thanks again for taking the time to share your impressions, I hope there will be another chance to have you on our tours in the future! Arrivederci Andrea

Hi Odalys, thank you for your feedback. I am really happy that you enjoyed the tour and the guide! Andrea N. is a really nice person, I'm glad you had a good time with him. On the other hand I am sorry to hear you weren't happy with the restaurant he suggested. We have been with many clients in that restaurant and generally they are all happy with the food and the service, we never had any complaints. We will surely take into consideration your comments and offer different restaurant suggestions for the future. Thank you. I hope we will have you again on our tours!

Exploring Cinque Terre was as wonderful as we imagined! Our tour guide, Loredana, took care of everything including organizing our trains and ferry rides and securing a cafe table for lunch. She provided historical facts, best vantage points and tips about avoiding the crowds. Simply gorgeous!

Cinque Terre experience
, Feb 2020
What an amazing tour. Our guide Serena was wonderful. She met us at the door of our B & B, took care of the train tickets and navigating us thru the streets and the crowds. Her knowledge of the history and landscape of Cinque Terre was complete. She also made sure we had a table for lunch outside in the square and always took extra care for our safety. Visiting Cinque Terre with a private experienced guide is the best way to see this beautiful area. This tour was one of the highlights of our trip. Donna V Phoenix, AZ
Worth the money
, Dec 2019
I got to see so much of Cinque Terre because I had a guide. Because it was just me, we were able to climb the mountains and get great views. My guide was a great photographer and when it came time to shop, he helped me translate. It was one of the best experiences I have had in Italy. I would do it again in a heartbeat!

Cinque Terre is a wonderful, exciting place to visit. Our tour guide, Loredana is an excellent tour guide and wonderful person. She is very knowledgeable and passionate about Cinque Terre and Italy!! The lunch we had during the tour was the best meal we had on our two week vacation in Italy. Loredana met us at our hotel, set up the transportation for the tour and escorted us back to our hotel! Highly Recommended! Grazie Mille !!

Fabulous day with Andreina taking us to 3 villages! She was so attuned to our tight schedule coming from florence for the day. We loved her enthusiasm, sharing her culture and the history of cinque terra! Was truly amazing and great memories to treasure! You made your dad proud Andreina ....Thanks for a great day of sharing! Ps Best meal we've had yet in Italy!
Cinque Terre from La Spezia - FANTASTIC
, Sep 2019
Our tour guide Marta was absolutely wonderful. She customized the day for the four of us and made the perfect tour. We have some slow walkers among us, and were still able to maximize our time without feeling rushed. Visited Vernazza & Monterosso via train - ferried to Riomaggiore -- and saw Manarola and Corniglia from the ferry. Took the train back to La Spezia from Riomaggiore. Outstanding!

The tour was very enjoyable, meet our expectation and well managed by Emilio. Big credit to Emillio.
Nice tour of Cinque Terre
, Jul 2019
We had a very nice and informative guide and enjoyed the tour of 3 towns. From the port, the guide informed us of the 15 minute walk to the train station. It was really a 30 walk. For what we paid for the tour, a cab should have been provided. We paid for our own cab upon the return. Overall we enjoyed the tour. Be aware it is not for those who are mobile impaired.
Emilio was the best!
, May 2019
Our tour guide was pretty incredible. We invited him to eat lunch with us and he accepted. The tour was awesome, Emilio was awesome and the place that Emilio suggested for lunch was awesome. My boys wanted to follow him on Instagram so if you read this review please let me know what your Instagram handle is. Thanks again. If you are lucky enough to get Emilio jump all over it and book it.
This was a wonderful experience!

Andreas was a great guide. We met him and took the train to Monterroso, where we strolled and took pictures of the lovely Mediterranean. We went into the Old Town and did some shopping, then went to Vernazza for lunch. Andreas guided us with care to the most picturesque spots and a delicious restaurant, then we took the boat to Corniglia. He pointed out the vineyards and the reason for the colors on the buildings, showed us how they lower and raise the fishing boats every day, and encouraged us to try the Lemoncino (which is delicious over ice cream!). He was a wealth of interesting information, and we enjoyed this tour immensely. Andreas even fretted when half of our group got delayed on the train ride back, and he stayed with us until he put all of us in a taxi back to the cruise. A very responsible and knowledgeable guide!
Great way to see the Cinque Terre
, Jul 2018
Our day in the Cinque Terre with Diego was one of the highlights of our Western Med cruise. He was an informative guide. The description of the tour said we would visit two of the towns by ferry, but it was actually by a private small boat. What a pleasant surprise. Miguel, the “captain”, took us along the shoreline and into the mouths of several grottoes. He positioned us for perfect photos, and we got to go right into each harbor. Diego steered us to a lovely restaurant for lunch and then guided us back to the ship.
