What people are saying about Vernazza

The kayak tour is amazing. We did a typical boat tour of the cinque terra as well, but the Kayak tour is great because you go at a slower pace and you can get much closer to the cliffs and caves. Manuel was a great host, and very knowledgeable of the local area. I recommend bringing nothing but water shoes/sandals so you can climb on the rocks in a small pool to enjoy focaccia and wine. Don’t bring phones or cameras as you will get more wet than you think. The hosts have a storage facility at the meeting point where you can keep your valuables.

A really nice and fun experience. To do! Great organization! Daniele, the guide was very nice and helpful. He explained the characteristics of the place well and guided us very well to Vernazza. Really recommended experience!

Wonderful day spent with an amazing guide. The tour itself was fun and a unique way to see the cinque terre. Our guide Sara was the star of the show - 10/10. She was patient, considerate, helpful, fun and made our day.

This experience was a great way to see the coast line of Cinque Terra. It was not too challenging and the guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The wine and focaccia was delicious.

Nothing I would change. Great tour guide; friendly, funny and very knowledgable. Wine and food was great too
