It was Amazing trip to Cinque Terre! We were only 5 plus driver and guide. Our driver Stephano was super friendly. He took care and gave us bottle of water the beginning and in the end. Thanks to him our trip to port was very fast and smooth. Even it started rain in the beginning but when we arrived to port luck was on our side. Rain stopped and it was amazing weather, not hot and fresh wind. Our quide Luigi was so helpful and friendly. He gave us a lot of information where to go, what to see, what to try to eat and made our trip to each village super easy. It was really nice to travel to each village on a boat. It was enough time to explore all villages of Cinque Terre! I highly recommend this tour! You will enjoy for sure!

At the start we were disappointed because we pass a 5Terre by train not boat, but after time we see throught, that this is the mysterious weather and the waves was big, so we accept it this “travel by train”. The excelent driver Adriano pick up and take out at the place and his wheel with pedals is like his skills. The guide name as Luigi is very grateful, funny and helpfulness. He comunicated enought that he wasn’t even annoying. He talk about everything, from us to every sights and the interestingness about place, history and present. For us was less time to stay at village, but our overall impression don’t change, it was PERFECT

Thank you for a great trip!! We got to see so much in the time we had. Cinque Terre was as beautiful as I imagined and we got to go by ferry and the train so we got the best of both worlds! Luigi was an amazing guide, great knowledge and so helpful and fun. Big thumbs up to Luigi and our driver!! Super Beautiful and Amazing

Great trip to see most of Pisa and Cinque Terre in a day. You will sleep well at the end of the day…
