Our guida was Inna, and she was excellent: the information she gives is interesting and timely, while also giving us space to relax, either on the bus, on our free time at the villages where we stopped, or on the train/boat. The tour included a smooth and confortable bus ride to Manarola, where we spent approximatedly 1 hour, then a train ride to Monterosso, where we spent approximatedly 2 hours (we had lunch here), followed by a boat ride that offered views from the ocean side to all of the 5 villages that make Cinque Terre (with a brief 15 minute stop at a village not officially part of Cinque Terre), followed by a bus ride back to Milan. The tour was professional, well-run, and very organized, allowing us enough time to explore the villages without any rush, and giving us interesting information about the places we passed / visited.
Marco was our guide- he was friendly, accommodating, and great! Even was able to pick up my grandma as she was not able to do the long walk from the ship to the boat. On the tour you will see all five villages of the Cinque Terre with photo opportunities in front of each town and short description variations from your guide of where we are. however you were only able to get off in Monterosa for one hour. By the time we walked up and found a spot for lunch we were really only left with 10 or 15 minutes of sightseeing. Only complaint was I wish there was more time to view the town. However, it was beautiful and the boat ride was great! You can do this tour if you are coming on a cruise. And communication before to confirm tour and meeting location/time is super easy via the WhatsApp app. Great for 23, 51, 65, and 77-year-old.
It was an organized and enjoyable trip, we went by comfortable bus at the exact agreed upon time and there is a break time on the way to pick up breakfast and refresh, then we visited one small village manarola and then we had the train to monterosso and spent 2.30 hours to explore the village by foot and had amazing pictures, we also had a cruise to visit portovenere, it was a lot of activities and amazing place to visit in one trip.
We had a great day trip to Cinque Terre with Inna and Angelo. The tour stops at two towns (Manarola for approximately 45 minutes and Monterosso for approximately 2 hours). It also includes a boat ride that offers phenomenal views of all five villages. The tour was professional, well-run, and interesting despite the temperature being nearly 100 degrees.
The trip was very well organised. Guide was utterly professional, informative and took good care of his group.
