Cinque Terre Tour

★★★★★ Reviewed by Dominique on 2018-09-11
In general, we appreciated the organization. The lunch was particularly excellent as the service. The boat tour was very pleasant and gave us the opportunity to understand the region and its beauty. But Cinque Terre has become too touristic for our taste.

Best day of my trip!!

★★★★ Reviewed by Matthew on 2018-08-02
Had a fantastic tour to cinque tere. Our guide Juliano was fantastic. During the ferry ride he made sure to go around to everyone and give some info about the area. This was appreciated as the PA on the boat was only in Italian. He made sure everybody knew the schedule and gave good info before our free time.
