    We took this guided trip to Cinque terre. It was definitely worth the money and convenience. The bus was very comfortable and equipped. The guide Sabrina was very nice. The are of Cinque Terre is very beautiful. It was a good 1 day trip and not very tiring due to the way they had arranged the transportation between bus, train and boat.

The wine tasting was great. We had three generous samples of wine and some light snacks that were more than enough. Stopping to swim was refreshing considering it was quite warm the day we went.

Overall a very good day trip. We met at the assigned meeting point, but then had to walk a few blocks to get the bus on a sidestreet instead of the bus stop meeting point. Then off we went to Como, the first stop. Right at the start of Lake Como, is a nice town that we spent about 30 minutes walking around. Then on the bus, we rode along the winding road next to the lake with really nice views. Unfortunately was hazy out, so not as nice as when a sunny day. We then boarded a boat for a ride across to Bellagio. We actually rode back down the lake and then up to Bellagio. Really nice ride and good views of the towns along the lake. Spent almost two hours in Bellagio and had lunch at wherever you wanted. Very nice seaside town with quaint and colorful buildings. Touristy as would be expected, but nice to walk around. Then back on the boat to cross to Varenna, another small seaside village. Only spent 40 minutes here, but was enough. Then bus ride back. Overall enjoyed it.

I was travelling with my family and we enjoyed the trip very much. The views are breathtaking, the vilagges colorful and picturesque, every single corner is like a postcard. We also appreciated the organization and itinerary. Our guide Franko was very knowledgeable, giving a lot of interesting information. I can recommend the tour 100%.

A different day by the beautiful lake of Como. Time is always tight. Perhaps another half-hour in Bellagio would make sense for the amount they charge. Being a tourist area, in my case on a Sunday, and a stop for lunch, it can get tight with the availability of restaurants.

An amazing tour from start to finish. Was super relaxing travel and you got to see so many parts of Italy.. Many thanks to our amazing tour guide Franco who was friendly and fun tour guide from start to finish. Would highly recommend this.

Fantastic guide and unbelievable driver. Timing of everything was perfect and the tour was extremely enjoyable.
