What people are saying about Cinque Terre National Park

The COVID context has its advantages such as being able to visit this kind of place with very few simultaneous visitors. There were 4 of us in a minibus to do this tour, whereas it is usually done in a bus of 60 people. On site, ditto, very few people. These villages are beautiful and the tour very pleasant and friendly thanks to Francesco our driver and guide. At each stop, we have a set time, usually 1 hour or even a little more to take a tour on our own. This is enough and it is the kind of ideal tour when you want to optimize a short stay (4/5 days) in Florence and its region. The minibus is parked at the first stop, then we take the train (ticket included in the tour) to the following villages and return to the starting point by ferry (ticket also included in the tour). We have very fond memories of it.

Cinque Terre was simply mesmerizing. The guide on the way there was both driving and talking (not as loud), and was a bit harder to understand, but as the tour proceeded he showed up to be quite caring and respectful of the group pace and speed. Also quite friendly and never hesitated to explain anything at his reach. Really enjoyed it. Only part I didn't like was on the way back, had to climb the hill to the van by foot, under the heavy sun and sweating like crazy, but I understand that it was somewhat necessary.

the operative part was very good, the guide was going very fast for my liking ... we had to keep up, except for the parts we had free

Amazing trip. Guide was wonderful. Showed us the essentials and gave us time to explore. Would highly recommend

Excellent guide very friendly and does an excellent job love what he does we are very grateful
