Amazing TOUR
Oct 2021 • Friends
My friend and I had a great experience so if you go to Florence you must do this tour because you won't regret it. Costantino was an incredible guide for our day tour to Cinque Terre :). He was funny and able to answer all our questions. I will highly recommend paying the full price so you don't need to worry about buying the train tickets and lunch.
Overall great experience :)

We had an absolutely incredible time! Our guide Francesco was able to handle answering everyone's questions across 3 different languages (wow!) and had a great sense of humor to help us make the best of unexpected changes. Taking the boats due to the trains being unavailable ended up being one of my favorite parts. The views, food and people we met along the way were fantastic. Thank you Francesco and Claudio!

Ciao Florence to Cirque Tere tour
Costanina was a fantastic guide for our day tour to the Cinque Terre. Amazing value for an all day tour which included coach, train and boat commuting to 4 different places on the coast.
A very informative guide who speaks 5 languages! On the tour we got lots of time to explore and stop off for food or a glass of wine. Great tour, well organised, great guide and excellent value for money. Thank you 👍🇬🇳

The cities are very beautiful and it was an amazing experience. The guide could manage the multi-language tour, and I think he could explain all details needed for a good understanding about the places and history.

Excellent time in Cinque Terre, guided by Francesco. highly recommend.
This is a review of a Cinque Terre day trip from Florence, guided by Francesco and Elisabeth. We had an excellent time discovering the marvelous 4 out of 5 villages of Cinque Terre - we started from 7 am in Florence and around 10 we arrived already in Manarola, which was excellent, in the morning. Later, we had almost 2,5h in Monterosso al mare, where we had lunch and multiple time at our own (including for a short swimming). Then 50’ for Vernazza and Riomaggiore. Francesco who guided the English tour was incredible, such a good vibe, funny, taking care of us, making sure we had all the information we needed to enjoy this trip.

Wonderful tour
Aug 2021 • Solo
What an amazing tour! Cinque Terre is a very inspiring place and our guide, Renata, made my experience exquisite. Thanks, Renata. She is very knowledgeable about the towns, attentative and always available for questions and suggestions. I was very impressed by her language habilities. Even though the tour was English/Italian, Renata spoke French with some of the people that could not understand either languages. She is also very nice, efficient and funny. I will definitely choose her again.
Also these tours are perfect if you don’t want to figure out about how/when to get to places and if you are solo. Very convenient.

Unforgettable day at 5 Terre.
It was a very tiring and busy day. 5 Terre is very beautiful but it is too crowded. So I want to thank Renata who guided us all day with sympathy and efficiency. She showed us the best of the towns we visited and was always available to help the group. At the end of the day I was exhausted but very happy! I must say I have done other tours in Italy but it is the first time I give 5 stars to it because of our guide. She was funny and brilliant. More than we could have expected
