What to expect
Travel by air-conditioned minivan from Florence to the coast, driving through the scenic countryside of Tuscany and the Liguria region. The first stop of the day is in Manarola, where you’ll have free time to stroll the historic streets, take in the ocean views, or sample some regional wines at a local wine bar (own expense). Meet back up with your guide and travel to Vernazza by boat, gliding beneath the dramatic sea cliffs of the Cinque Terre. On arrival, explore Vernazza at your own pace, perhaps visiting its medieval sea tower, or enjoying a typical Italian lunch (own expense) at one of the seafront restaurants. Make a final stop in Corniglia, a village perched high in the hills of Liguria, before setting out on the return journey to Florence.

Lovely city and fabulous personal tour
Nov 2019
The tour was very intimate. There were four persons total for the tour and leaving from central Florence took about 2 hours. We made it to three cities. Two by car and one by a short train. You can also take the train directly from Florence. Since we were there during the off season the towns were pretty much shutdown. I can see, though, that during the high season it can get crazy since the streets are pretty narrow. For the first stop, Manarola, we just took photos....granted the views were beautiful. It would have been nice to do all five towns since most of the shops were closed and there wasn't much to do other than sit and eat at the second stop in Vernazza. We ended up going to Gianni's and had a great white fish meal. We actually left town three, Corniglia, early since there wasn't much left to do. Keep in mind the season that you are traveling so that you can get the most out of your tour.

Dear Client Thank you for your feedback. I understand that overall the tour was fabulous and you enjoyed exploring the stunning area of Cinque Terre on our small group tour. The itinerary has been optimized to feature the most interesting of the villages considering also the distance from Florence and the various ages of our participants. The are can be pretty busy and crowded and peak season months of tourism - now in lower season you can enjoy exploring the locations without the crowds. Local businesses may sometimes be open seasonally or opt for taking a holiday at some time during the less busy season but this is not something we have control over. From what I can see you had a nice time on our tour - thank you for joining! Kind regards, Aleksandra Sales Dept

Cinque Terre
Nov 2019
Yaris was fantastic. So well organised and a pleasure to spend a day (11 November 2019) with. I drove through Tuscany but would not drive the Cinque Terre. So hilly and incredibly narrow roads, even by Italian standards. It was a pleasure to be driven by Yaris in a small group and simply enjoy the incredible scenery and Yaris's knowledge of the region. Highly recommended.

A day to remember!
Oct 2019 • Friends
Yaris was our guide and made the day unforgettable. The journey was filled with picturesque views, Italian facts, and great stories. Although the weather was overcast, the sites were beautiful and made for a dramatic backdrop for the photos. There was a weather alert for one stop, so Yaris came up with a plan to stop by Pisa after our trip to Cinque Terre.

I was very interested in seeing Cinque Terre. We visited 4 villages, took a train ride, shopped, had lunch and then gelato.We had plenty of time to shop and have a nice lunch. Also plenty of time for picture taking. Our guide Claudia was great. He gave us lots of info about the area. I would highly recommend this tour.

Cinque Terre day trip from Florence
Oct 2019 • Couples
Best way to see Cinque Terre from Florence in a day especially when your time is limited. While it’s quite a long ride it’s well worth it. Gianni the tour quite new exactly where to take us to maximize the trip. The mini van was brand new and comfortable. Cinque Terre is on scale with the Grand Canyon; the views and vistas are amazing to see.

Luca is an awesome guide!
Oct 2019 • Couples
Great tour, Luca is a great guide who will keep you entertained the whole way. Honestly he was one of the highlights. We got taken along the back streets of the various towns in Cinque Terre which was great to see. Lots of photo ops and going early October meant less crowds and pleasant weather. It is absolutely worth the cost of the tour vs doing it yourself.

Dear Ken, Thank you for your comments. Cinque Terre area, in th autumn especially, is very picturesque and beautiful and definitely worth seeing! I will certainly forward your comments to Gianni - our driver-guide. The tour operates with AC Mercedes or similar make vehicles with max 8 people. All he vehicles have the capacity for 8 people + driver. Did you ask the driver-guide for assistance? Normally customers are asked to change seats during the day so that anybody is comfortable.

Fantastic day with the the best guide/ driver we have ever experienced
Aug 2019 • Couples
The day was amazing, our driver turned up on time. Jacobo drove safely, kept us informed in interesting and fascinating conversation all the way there, during the day and all the way home.
He was a perfect gentleman and very calm with all the difficult driving.
The sights were magnificent and we got to see a part of Italy that we never knew existed.
Thank you so much.

Sooo not worth the money
Aug 2019
Just returned from this tour, Aug 9, 2019 and paid over $700 for 4 people for just a driver. We left at 8:10am, hit construction half hour into drive for ONE hour stand still traffic. Arrive in Manarola, could not visit town, no time, headed immediately to marina for public ferry. Got turned away as it was overbooked. Had to take train to Vernazza instead. The best part of trip was canceled and not for weather. Tour company never told us it was a public ferry. Missed the views I had hoped to see. Then had 1 hour for lunch, rushed back into van to Corniglia. Oh had HALF hour to view town and rushed backed into van at 3p. Returned to starting point at 530. Tour was scheduled until 6p. Lost 1 1/2 hours in Cinque Terra and no boat ride. Oh did I mention the train was second class without air conditioning!
The only pro was the driver was very nice.

STAY AWAY from this tour. Booked on Viator

Dear Client , I'm very sorry your experience was not a positive one with our tour . Claudio, our driver-guide reported us about the issue with the traffic on the highway also because of an accident and this caused delay in getting to the Cinque Terre .Unfortunately Claudio did not report about the issue with the boat , and this is the first time after many years of operating this tour, that our clients , due to large cruise ship passengers presence at the same time , were denied to enter the boat because being full . Certainly I feel embarassed about this and I will certainly contact the boat service as this is not acceptable .I fully understand therefore your frustration and I will inform Viator to offer you a partial refund of 40,00 Euro per person . This said , please accept my apologies for this partially ruined experience at the Cinque Terre. Kind Regards Monica
